So the day of the IVF is here....I'll be leaving in about 45 minutes to head up to REACH to get pregnant....haha, that's not a sentence you hear every day! Unfortunately, the parents are heading back to Holland today too. They are at the airport as I type and hate that they are missing this day. Things took a little longer with the egg donor, and they thought that they would be able to be here for it, but it just didn't work out like that. But, I know that even though they aren't here, their baby(ies) will be here!
I have to say, the last couple of weeks have been really busy with work, school, kids, and getting to see the parents while they were here. It's been so awesome to really get to spend time with them and get to really know them better. We haven't gotten that much time with any of the other parents, and so I really look at it as a blessing! Not only did we get to know them better, but some of our friends as well! I can't believe that after a cookout at our house with what seemed like 100 kids running around that they still want to go through everything! I think if that didn't scare them off, they should be fine. I'm so ready for them to come back in a few months when its time for that mid-pregnancy ultrasound and we can see them again! I'm also going to continue to work on getting them to move over here....always great to have more friends close by!
So...we won't know anything really until after the dreaded "two week wait" for a pregnancy test. Even then, we won't know much for sure for a bit after that. But, I'm going to just go ahead and assume that all will be good and in about 9 months they will be parents!!! How awesome to be able to give them that....it really is exciting and amazing to think about.....I just have such a hard time putting into words what this whole thing is like. I'm also glad that I have this blog to be able to share this journey with so many other people, I think all of this can really make you realize how lucky you are to have your children, no matter how they get here! And speaking of that, we are still working on the adoption stuff, just kind of in the holding pattern until we get the tax return and can send them some money to get started. You know, working on that patience stuff....I think that will be a work in progress until I die! I was trying to get the boys going this morning to get them to school, and Noah told me, "patience, patience, mommy" at least they get it....
So, don't forget if you live around Fort Mill that we will be having the garage sale March 3rd and still need your stuff! Also, we are still selling the tshirts and they are really good looking shirts! Thanks again for reading!!
