An emotional journey in order to get my little girl!
I've been trying to post for days but everytime I tried to upload a pic I would get the "crying baby" . I still can't get it to upload in the post but I did get the pic to upload as my avatar!
My little girl was born Sat (3/27) at 10:39. She was 6 lbs & 4oz & 19 in. We are truly blessed!!
A note about how she came to us.....I did my IVF/PGD (No MS) SET in CA in March 09 and got a BFP. That summer I got my little "girl" embryos shipped to TX and did an FET and transferred 3 girls and one stuck! I was worried more with this pregnancy more than either of boys. I had dreams she had Downs Syndrome and worried that something crazy would go wrong b/c I had done IVF ( I know it sounds crazy) but she was born this weekend and is perfectly healthy and ALL girl!I have been through a lot to get her. I know others have been through more cycles and still don't have their little one and I pray that they will get their "reward" soon. HT is a difficult emotional journey but when you see that little girl or boy you realize it was all worth it!Thanks for all of your prayers and support. I could have never done it without IG!
I'm a former teacher & now stay at home mom to two ridiculously cute little boys. I am married to my best friend and have an amazing family of 4. Yet, I feel as if there is someone missing. My heart longs for my daughter.
The problem, how to get her? We spent over $20,000 on cycle #1 pgd/ivf and now I am cycling locally and doing a frozen embryo transfer.
We've said if this cycle doesn't work we were going to move forward with International adoption. I'm already 2nd guessing that plan b/c the longing to be pregnant has gotten the best of me. So, I really need to have this work so I don't have to come up with a plan b....I mean plan C.
****Update: So far Plan B is still on!!!! Baby on Board!!!!
*****Another Update: She's here!! Our family is now complete and I think about how blessed I am every single time I see her!
