This blog was started in 2008 when we did IVF for the first time to build our family after 5 1/2 years of infertility. We now have 8 and 2 year old boys (thanks to modern medicine) and we are enjoying our blessed life as parents ♥ In the summer of 2016 we took another huge step and moved across the country from Oklahoma to New York! This blog is about life and everything in between

Post-Transfer and Baby Pic!

Sorry I didn't get on till today, my computer is upstairs and I have been stationed downstairs. The transfer went well, it was in the same room that my retrieval was in. We got the embryo picture first off, and Nick was able to hold my hand the entire time. Before the procedure started and we were in the room alone, I said a prayer for us that the next two weeks will pass quickly and be successful.

After confirming placement of the catheter in my uterus, the doctor inserted the embryos, then made sure none were still in the syringe. After they called all clear, he removed the speculum and had me lay there for about 15 minutes before I could go pee. Then we were free to go, but he advised that I lay down in the backseat on the way home, LOL. The rest of the day I vegged out on the couch (which has now caused my back to hurt) and took it easy.

I can't believe we are already to this point!!! Next week I will be busy, so hopefully the next two weeks go by fast. Our official test date when they will do the HCG blood draw is on October 16. Everyone, please keep us in your prayers, and thank you to those who have been.

I don't ask for much, I just want to be a mama!


  1. I'm praying for this to work- and after the years of heartbreak you totally deserve it! (even if there was no heartbreak you deserve it, you're going to be a great mom).

  2. Look at those sweet babies! Glad to hear everything went well. I can't believe you are already at this point either. It's totally flown by! I'm so glad your hubby was able to be with you. I wish mine could have been with me! Keep yourself busy the next 2 weeks and try to stay away from those HPT's!

  3. That is amazing! I am sure this two weeks will go by pretty fast...hopefully! I start my first set of shots on Tues! I am sooo ready to get started! Good luck!

  4. Your babies are beautiful already!
    I am keeping you and Nick in my prayers! Keep on resting so those babies can attach!
