I don't claim to be a photographer but...

I think you get the picture...



Needless to say, we are thrilled.



Today's bloodwork:.
Beta 308. 
Progesterone 28. 

Today is 11 days past 3 day transfer of our 2 little snowflakes.

We go back in on the 6th for our second beta. 
Please keep those prayers coming!

**This is a note for my friends struggling with infertility** Please never, ever give up hope! As someone who has spent the better part of the last two years worrying that this moment would never happen for us, I understand what it is to be there. Please see in this post the possibility in all things, even those which at times can feel so painfully impossible.

    ReplyDelete
  54. OMG OMG OMG!!!!!! You are joining me, alwaysamomma, in twin motherhood!!!!!! I am soooooo happy for you.

    The memory of Peyton and the strength you had, the perseverence, will serve you well in the task at hand, which will be, multitasking your heart out as you juggle life with a Duo!!!!

    Woot! I am just over the moon for you and your family. I know you will think of Peyton often, as I do my lost Duo, Isabella and Dominique, and little J... the children will never displace your love for Peyton, just know that. I wondered about that but my devotion to their memory remains the same. I just have a very strong respect for life and don't take it for granted due to the losses I have endured. Yes, I have greater fear, but I appreciate every day given to me, and my Duo.

    Hugs!

    My husband and I were never classified as "infertile", but we tried for the last 18 mos with no luck. We went to a fertility clinic and paid out of pocket to get the ball rolling. Before I was even able to schedule the next round of tests, we found out we were pregnant. Here we are, 7 weeks along. I will be sure to pass a long lots of good vibes for you every night!
