Strawberries. Kumquats. Prunes. Apparently, the babies are the size of all three this week. They've graduated from embryos to fetuses just as I've graduated from my RE to my OB. As I gave a pantless hug to everyone yesterday, I was overcome with emotion. It's hard to believe. 6 rounds of clomid. 3 rounds of… Continue reading Fruit I never knew was the same size.
Yesterday, we had our 8wk ultrasound to check in on our little guys. According to various apps, they're the size of either kidney beans or raspberries. I'm finding it disconcerting that they're compared to food constantly, but I also am having trouble thinking of alternatives. Perhaps a small pebble? A stack of seven nickels? 300… Continue reading Krasbeans and other units of measurement

This was another vaginal ultrasound (like I'm used to) since it's so early. My blood pressure was surprisingly normal and I'm still… Continue reading 6w1d and our first ultrasound

So I've read about everything… Continue reading How many sticks does it take?

The immature egg didn't mature, the two that were immediately useless were useless, but FIVE of our SIX mature eggs fertilized normally. I then had to wait until Thursday for our Day 3 update, all while keeping in mind the decisions that… Continue reading Changing plans and finding peace
If I've been around your children for any significant portion of time, I assume you've heard me singing "I love eggs, from my head down to my legs...." This commercial apparently resonated with me a bit too much because it's constantly stuck in my head. I thought it was something everyone knew, but I've gotten more… Continue reading I ❤ Eggs
I was trying to decide where we were going to eat last night and I came across the word lamb which reminded me of my severe disdain for silent letters. They're pointless and just make the English language harder for people. I also don't like slurs, but that's no surprise to anyone who knows me.… Continue reading Silent letters, slurs, uncertainty, and other things I dislike!
