Are You Going to Have Any More?

Are You Going to Have Any More? My stomach was suddenly in knots. My brain started swirling through all of the horrible things we had been through just to get one. I was just bragging about my perfect 2 year old toddler and showed off her picture. Then she asked so innocently and with loadsContinue reading “Are You Going to Have Any More?”

Our 6 Week Scan – TWINS

**I am currently pregnant with ONE baby. After the 5 week scare, we felt relieved that our babies were still in there. I can’t bring myself to calm down about it, though.

Cancelled FETs x 3

I am so so frustrated. Here’s what’s been happening: School was ending and it was the PERFECT time for a FET. Finally after waiting so long after my Laparoscopic Myomectomy, it was time.

Genetic Testing

We decided to send our frozen embryos out for Pre-Implantation Genetic Screening (PGS) in order to improve our success rates. Boy, was I glad.

Our Frozen Embies!

  Throughout the chaos of my Egg Collection and my HORRENDOUS recovery, we found out how many future babies we had developing into embryos! This made the whole experience worth it.
