Knocked down by infertility.
Knocked up by my infertility doctor
with my best friend's eggs.
Hoping to get knocked up one more time...
Sunday, May 11, 2014
It's been a crazy five weeks since the twins have been born. I'm still working on the birth story. However it's a slow go since most days I fall into bed and promptly pass out. My days are filled with trying to balance driving an hour to the NICU, visiting and feeding the twins, spending time with E, and pumping. The good news is that the twins are doing fabulously and have made forward progress throughout their stay. I'd appreciate your thoughts and prayers being sent their way that this continues.
Teacher. Military Wife. Daughter. Sister. Friend. Infertile. Now Mother.
I use to spend my days warping young minds as a teacher. However, three IVFs and one super fabulous donor later, I found myself knocked up by another man. Now, I'm a mom staying at home with baby E, working online, and loving life in Alaska. Now, we are on the journey for baby #2 via embryo donation from IVFlygirl and her family.
