Hello there... (If there's anyone still there) -
I can't believe how long it's been since I've been here. So much has happened! I've thought about this space and tried so many times to come back and write, but just could.not.find.the.time. I was extremely overwhelmed at the end of my pregnancy with work and then quickly transitioned to my new role as a mom. Never thought I'd actually become a mother. All of that took over my life and has since kept me really busy. I'm amazed at all the people that are able to continue blogging after having a baby! When I have a little bit of free time, all I want to do is sit, watch stupid TV and maybe have a glass of wine :)
I'm very grateful for everything that has happened in the last two years, and I hope that others are encouraged when they read my story.
A short update -
My beautiful miracle son was born in November 2012. Out of two embryos transferred in February 2012, one made it and is here on earth. I still can't quite believe it. He came when I was 39 weeks, 6 days pregnant. Right on time. Perfect little boy. He's now 19 months, full of energy and lights up my world every day. He has never been sick (*knock on wood*), and is just completely healthy. I'm still in disbelief that this person is mine. Part of me and my sweet husband.
The next step for our family is to attempt to add another branch to our family tree. That's right, we're trying for #2! We've been trying on our own since I stopped breastfeeding 6 months ago. We hang on to hope that maybe, just maybe it'll happen without assistance. But we are also realistic. In early 2012, out of our 11 embryos, only one made it to freezing. We're scheduled to start meds as soon as CD1 arrives (in a couple of weeks), and hopefully all will go well enough to transfer our snow embie in early July. Praying for a miracle.
