Our Babies

My fertilization report is in and once again this cycle is following Chase's to a *T*. Out of the seven eggs, four have fertilized. That means we have four babies baking! Most likely we will transfer three and if the fourth makes it to the freezing point, we will put her on ice for a possible transfer several years down the road. At first I'll admit that I was disappointed with only four making it, but when I went back and read my journal from Chase's IVF I was so upbeat about having four and quickly realized that I needed to get my head out of the place where the sun doesn't shine and be appreciative for what I do have. So many people never make it this far or only have one and we have four! Four sweet babies growing right now. I have no doubt this cycle is going to work and if I had 4 or 5 frozen, I would be faced with a tough decision that I wouldn't want to make. So this is really good (and I'm working really hard to believe that).

Now, I KNOW that we are going to get pg from this IVF and in my heart I know that it is going to be a girl. I always knew I would have a boy and a girl, maybe because I have an older brother, who knows. So, I'm just going to assume that our Tater Tots are girls and that is how I will be referring to them. That being said, we will be picking the girls up from summer camp at 8:00 am on Thursday. From that point on I will be on strict bedrest until Sunday morning. My mom is thrilled to say the least because she will have our Doodlebug during this entire time. I'm not sure how I'm going to handle it and already dread dropping him off tomorrow. He however is thrilled and has continued to tell me, "I go see Duchess, I go to Duchess house" about 50 times today. Did I mention she will have MadDogs, my niece, with her too?!?! Heck, by Sunday she'll be begging us to take him back! ;o)
