As of Monday, March 12........Baby A=159bpm heart rate Baby B= 163bpm heart rate.....Both babies are growing and measuring up to date!! Praise God:-) Well today (Thursday), I'm officially 8wks5days........woo-hoo I sometimes wish I can fast forward my pregnancy to the arrival date of my babies.......so much for wishful thinking, huh??? This week I'm beginning to feel the pregnancy fatigue and it's really taking my energy away. The minute I get home, I head straight for the sofa or bed.......but I'm not complaining one bit! I'm thankful grateful and blessed to be carrying these beautiful rainbow babies:-) God is good!

It's been awhile since I've posted anything on my blog.......well my IVF cycle in Nov/Dec 2011 was unsuccessful:-( My hubby and I were both disappointed with the results to say the least. BUT we never gave up.......because we did another IVF cycle in Jan/Feb 2012 and I am still in my 2WW....just waiting for 2/16/2012 to do my BETA!! To make a long story short, I POAS 7dp5dt (2/9/2012) and got a BFP:-) What tempted me to take a HPT was all of the symptoms I was experiencing: Nausea, heartburn, abdominal tightness, tiredness, sore boobs, and gas (TMI). My hubby and I are both excited and nervous at the same time, but we are praying and thanking God for this wonderful blessing! Please keep us in your prayers:-) I know this will be a long journey ahead for us, but we plan to embrace it all and let the Lord lead and guide us through!! God is good!!

Dear Lord, I know you're listening to my prayers on a daily basis. I jusT want you to know that I'm never going to give up on you because you've definitely brought me a long way. As I lay here in my bed, I wonder if I'm pregnant?? I sometimes wonder why I've been the chosen one to have to go through so much pain and despair?? I often wonder what have I done wrong in my life or where did I go wrong?? Yes, I know it's not a good thing to question your work because every work you've done is for our own good, even though we're not able to see the reason right away! I know Lord Jesus you said to speak our needs to you, trust you, believe you, and have faith while we wait and our needs will be fulfilled according to your timing. Lord, I would love to share the love I have for you with my future children very soon! It hurts for me to see others pregnant knowing that is something I really want to experience. I know Lord you've blessed me in so many other ways and I will continue being your servant until you call me home! I just pray God that my husband and I can experience the warmth loving feeling of raising kids of our own together very very soon! I TRUST you God and I know you are creating OUR family as I speak! Expecting great news next Friday stating, "You're Pregnant!" I'm praising you in advance God for the wonderful news my husband and I will receive on Friday, Dec 16, 2011:-). I Love You!

Today was our embryo transfer @12:30pm.....I arrived at Piney Point @11am as instructed with my Driver's license, a liter of water, 1 Valium, and 1 Motrin. My vital signs were taken first, then I had to strip from head to ankle leaving only my socks on with the hospital gown. The nurse told me not to urinate because I needed to have a full bladder for the ET. At that point, my bladder was extremely full and I felt so much pressure to the point where I was uncomfortable....yikes. I tried to hold my urine as long as I could....then all of a sudden I felt it coming out slowly....yuck yuck. I immediately jumped to my feet and I started going everywhere....lol. I urinated so much until I had a trail of urine leading to the bathroom. That was the most embarrassing feeling ever! How could I pee on myself?? I pulled the string for the nurse to come and assist me. She and several other nurses came rushing to my rescue to find me standing up in a pee puddle! Talk about embarrassing for a grown woman.....lol However, in my defense I told 2 nurses that I needed to go right away, but they told me to hang in there. Word to the wise: When you gotta go, you gotta go! The staff came in and mopped the floor and gave me some new socks because my gown was dry!! That's not the end of my story.......the minute the last nurse came into the Pre-op room to explain the procedure and to see if I had any questions, I felt like I needed to go again??? She told me to relax and it won't be long before I'm escorted into the OPerating Room. Well the minute she left, I stood up to go to the bathroom and started going again....lol I cleaned up the mess myself because I was too ashamed to let them know I had gone again! Enough of my pee-pee story.....well the RE Dr. Williams came in the Pre-op room to give us the results on the embryos: 2 embryos made it to The Blastocyst stage by Day 3.....1 embryo is at the Morula stage or Pre blastocyst stage......and the others (11 embryos) contain 6-8 cells. The plan right now is to watch the other 11 and the Pre blastocyst embryo until Monday to see if they'll be capable of freezing. The RE went ahead and transferred my 2 Blastocysts!! Thank You God for this opportunity again:-) Now we're in our 2 week wait.....it's going to be a long wait , but we're grateful and blessed to have come this far. We're thanking God in advance for our developing babies! Around Dec 15, we will have our Beta Test!! Currently, im on strict bedrest for the next 3 days........sending baby dust to everyone including myself...Let the good times roll:-)

Egg Retrieval was on Sunday, Nov 27, 2011 @ 8:45am A total of 24 eggs were retrieved! woo-hoo The next day Monday, Nov 28, 2011 the fertilization results were revealed: Out of the 24 eggs retrieved on Sunday.........14 of the 24 were mature........14 of those mature eggs fertilized......:-) That was the best news ever, despite the fact that 10 of the retrieved eggs were immature. Praise God for the awesome results!! My RE is definitely shooting for a Day 5 ET, which is set for Friday, Dec 2, 2011 At this moment, I'm nervous, ready, and anxious to get everything over with???? I've taken 2 weeks off from work to just relax and take everything in. This IVF cycle has to be the one because we can feel it. I mean everything so far has been falling in place for us:-) In the meantime, I will not worry about anything and just continue praying:-) I've already claimed that in Aug 2012, my husband and I will hold our baby in our arms:-)
