This time last year I was waiting for the call to find out if our one frozen embryo would survive the thaw (we were given a 50% chance) and we would have something to transfer. Amazingly, we did. I remember taking the phone call in the kitchen. Nice Nurse called with the good news and I shouted with glee. Goodness knows I had been on the wrong side of good odds before. Amazing that the slow-growing embryo not only thawed (thank you, Uncle Jimmy - the embryologist) but stuck around and gave LB a little sister. Once again, I am struck by how lucky we are in so many ways.
LBII was born exactly 9 months after transfer (June 26th to March 26th).
LB was born exactly 9 months after their conception. (Sept 20th to June 20th)
They were both born on a Friday
No, not magic - just coincidence but it is fun to notice.
Oh, and I missed it, but on June 10th was my third blogoversary. I started blogging about the time we made the decision to move to donor eggs. I thought I was the only one who had a mutually genetic baby die only to never have another one. I soon found out that I was not alone. Thanks to all the ladies out there in the blogosphere for your support along the way.
