19 weeks tomorrow and I'm at least halfway through my pregnancy with our babies. It's hard to believe how quickly time has flown, but at the same time, not. It's an interesting mix of paralyzing fear and realizing that I absolutely have to prepare for these babies, so standing still isn't an option. Justin doesn't… Continue reading Whoaaaaa, we’re halfway there!

It will be a long agonist protocol which is similar to January's (the most successful). My agonist injections have begun and I'm almost… Continue reading One month post-transfer
