Friendship through Fertility …
Fleming and Mart…
I fully believe God puts people in your life for a reason. This story is about a chance encounter that turned into meaningful friendships; both girls you will hear from separately and will share their stories soon! Fleming, Rachel and I met at work.
I am going to start with Fleming (Rachel’s story will be posted soon)…She and I met 3 years ago at work. At first we were a little leary of a new girl, but she fit right in and became a fast friend. I just didn’t know how close we were truly going to get!
Fast forward to a few months later, I am starting my FET treatment. My transfer had taken place three days earlier and I was at work, sitting on a heating pad, sore from the progesterone shots. On this particular day, it happened to be just Fleming and I in the office and we got to talking. I was being very secretive about this treatment, only 3 people knew. She was so excited for some reason, she was about to burst! She had good news and had to tell someone and that someone happened to be me! She shared her news (which she will be sharing in another post) but what she said to me about fertility, got me thinking.
Fleming, the girl who sits two offices away, was going through exactly what I was going through.
I couldn’t keep it a secret anymore. I spilled everything to her that afternoon and we found out so much about each other. Like we were going to the same practice (different doctors), she was going in for FET transfer the following day, and more.
It just goes to show that God knew what He was doing when he put Fleming in my life. She is truly one of my very best friends and I am so glad I didn’t keep my fertility a secret from her!
She will be sharing her whole story soon! Do any of you guys have a friend that you met while doing fertility treatments together? If so, send us your story (firstname.lastname@example.org) and it maybe be featured in an upcoming post!
Spoiler Alert- As this post is going live, Fleming is having her beautiful baby girl!
