One year ago today, our babies came home to my body. In just two hours, it will be exactly one year since Skip and I met up at Dr. B’s office and had two gorgeous blastocysts transferred back to my womb. And now, those two are fighting nap time while taking a little ride in their swings. I can’t help but smile when I look at them and think of all we went through to get to where we are now. They are certainly miraculous little guys and were worth every bit of frustration, disappointment and tear shed that led to their arrival into our lives.

I’ve spent the last three years peeing on sticks month after month, searching for a hint or a trace of a line, trying to will one to magically appear. But now they are positive. I’ve peed on a stick a day since I got the first positives, and said I’d stop when I got the blood test. I will go in at 8 am (PST) for a blood draw tomorrow and will have the results by noon, so no more pee sticks for me. Continue reading
I’m FINALLY getting close to the Beta day. I can’t believe I’ve waited this long. If it weren’t for the increasing darkness of the pee sticks, I am sure I’d have gone mad by now, but the pee sticks have kept me sane through this wait. I knew I liked them for a reason. Continue reading
