It has been a year since my little princess was defrosted & shot up into my uterus (sounds like poetry, right?). That day we sat nervously waiting to see how the embryos looked after being defrosted. I decided that morning to tell them I wanted to put in 3 instead of the 2 we had talked about. A teeny tiny part of me was scared I would have triplets but an even bigger part of me was terrified at the real possiblity of having twins. I still can't believe my DH agreed to 3. I could only get him to agree to an SET with our fresh cycle.
I'm so happy that my little girl was able to snuggle in and grow. I wonder which one of those embryos she was. Was she the 3rd one that almost didn't make it? I also wonder why her 2 little sisters didn't make it. Although, honestly, I can barely handle having ONE infant as this little girl is something else!! She barely sleeps & must have 100% of your attention when you are awake. There is no putting her on the back burner she is LOUD and wants her mommy ALL the time!
My little girl is now a week from being 4 mo. She is incredibly strong. When I had the FET one of the embryos was still stuck in the thing that they put in you. They had to reinsert it and put that last embryo in my uterus again. Funny enough, when she was born DD grabbed onto the side of the incubator/table while the nurses tried to move her over to the nearby scale. She wouldn't let go. The nurses told us to come take a picture of this strong girl! I wonder if that "sticky" embryo was my strong little one. lol!
DD is so beautiful. I know many of the girls on here have talked about not ever thinking about PGD once they get their little girls but I think about it almost daily. I think of all of the obstacles I went through to get her. How badly I wanted her and how blessed I am to finally have her.
One year ago I was scared, nervous, & hopeful.....today I'm happy & blessed that we have our little princess at home with us!
I hope everyone finds their desired gender at the end of their journey & I hope that journey is a short one!
