2014 and finally ready to blog again...

Hello dear EA friends,

I'm sorry I have been silent for far too long.  As some of you know, we transferred two little lives into my womb last May, got a positive pregnancy test and Beta numbers dropped as soon as I announced we were pregnant.  Then, that same week, my Mom, who I am very close with, was diagnosed with breast cancer...what a week of emotions.  I spent the remainder of the year focused on my Mom, her appointments, tests, surgeries, chemo, and traveling to NC to be with her.  However, the pain and sadness of finally being pregnant and then miscarrying stayed with me; buried in my heart. 

After much time has passed, tears, books, talking through the emotions, and praying---we are finally ready to try again!  I feel ready to finally re-enter the EA blog world :)  And my Mom is now cancer-free---praise GOD!!!  A huge weight has been lifted from my heart and our entire family!
Our transfer at the NEDC is March 20th which is an extra special day as it is the FIRST day of SPRING!!  I continue to think of the 4 remaining frozen babies we have & pray I'll get to meet and hold them in my arms someday...

Blessings to each of you and your journey.

2 little LIVES!

We transferred two precious embryos on May 21st!  They thawed two (of our six) and both looked great and thus, both were transferred to my womb Tuesday morning.   It was such an emotional, surreal moment to watch the whole thing occur and then to get that amazing ultrasound photo of them in my womb!  For the first time in my life, I got to see LIFE in my womb!!  We are eagerly awaiting the May 30th Beta!  Thanks for all of the prayers!

New outlook on Mother's Day

As a woman in her mid 30's with no children & years of "unexplained infertility", Mother's Day has been a Sunday of mostly tears at church.  But this year, its different.  I'm anticipating with great expectation to be a Mom this time next year!  In 9 days, precious embryos will be transferred to my womb, and will hopefully grow into the role of making me a mother...finally!
Today, Mother's Day 2013, I have a new outlook, a new hope, a peace that this has all been for a reason & future ministry---today I celebrate becoming a FUTURE Mother!

Single digit days til our transfer!

Only 9 days left!  I have my final lining check on Thursday and then start the Progesterone shots on Friday!  We leave Monday May 20th for Knoxville!  Praying for our precious embryos already...can't believe its here already!
