I Had Such an Amazing Experience

Absidi: Going to L.A. and meeting the other women was absolutely amazing! It was such an honor to be among such great women. I loved getting to know the other girls. They are all so sweet and I couldn't be happier that I am in this project with them. I was so glad that all of our personalities meshed so well. I felt so relieved to be around other women who share my frustrations and fears about conceiving. For so long I felt so alone, with nobody who understands what I was going through. Talking with the girls was so therapeutic for me; it really made me realize I wasn't alone. Even though we all came from such different backgrounds, I felt that we completely connected. We all had the same mission in mind. I had so much fun getting to know them, and it was so easy opening up to them. Anh-Chi even told me that this was the most fun she'd had with girls in a long time, and I definitely agreed!

At first I was nervous that it would be awkward and weird, but I felt so comfortable and open with them. I haven't shared that many emotions with friends (or strangers) in such a long time.

Then, the shoot was such an incredible experience! I felt so pampered and special! Everybody from the momlogic team was so sweet! They made me feel so comfortable and treated me like an essential member of their team. I loved getting to finally meet Jen, and Gillian was so funny! They made this whole experience so special.

The First Response doctor was amazing! He had answered more of my questions within a few hours than my doctors had in over a year! He was so honest and fun, as well as professional and informative. He made it so easy to ask those uneasy questions, even though we bombarded him with a million of them! I learned so much in that session.

I had such an amazing experience. I can't even express how happy I am. This whole experience is so inspiring. It feels surreal, and I still can't believe I was chosen to be a part of this. I am BEYOND excited, and I can't wait to see what the next couple months will bring. I'm continuing to pray that I get pregnant, and I have also added pregnancy prayers for the other women as well.

I am so proud of you Ab! This is such a big deal for you guys! I’m really really happy for you. Hopefully all this works. Watching your video made me cry. I didn’t know that it was so hard for you to be in the delivery room with me when Boo bear was born. I’m sorry. I am praying for you and Joel. I hope it happens soon!

Hey Sam =] Thanks so much. As hard as it can be, I wouldn’t take back being there for the world. Watching Ashlyn be born was one of the best experiences I have ever had. I don;t want you to be sorry, I thank you for letting me be a part of everything. You know I love that baby like my own!! =]
