Petrie, Ducky and Spike
Our friend, Andrew, told us the other day that if we get pregnant and have a boy, he thinks we should name him petri(like petri dish). So then I thought of Petrie from the land before time and I was like, we definitely need to name our embryos. So we officially have 3 embryos!! Our little babies! I am in love already!!! Petrie, Ducky and Spike(all land before time characters)! Thank you so much for your prayers!!! PTL!!! I was crying and jumping up and down!! My sister got to witness it all!!! She said she wishes she would've videoed it for Rob!..LOL! Dr. S, the embryologist said that the nurses will call me this afternoon to set up my transfer for friday! We are doing a 3 day transfer! They won't look at the little ones tomorrow but will look at them before the transfer on Friday and let us know how they look!! Oh I am flying high right now!! Now we'll just wait and see if they divide and grow like they should and of course PRAY! Thank you God! I am so excited!!!
Rob and I have been married for 5 years! He is the best husband ever and I am so thankful for him! In April of 2007 we started TTC. We went through 3 cycles of oral meds, 3 cycles of injectable meds w/IUI, 2 surgeries and 1 failed IVF(we have 3 babies in heaven). It sure was a rollercoaster ride and some days were really hard but our marriage only got stronger and we grew closer to God throughout all of it. In November of 2009 God gave us a heart for adoption and we pursued domestic open adoption! On April 27th, all of our stuff went up online and we were officially waiting!
August 2010 we felt led to pursue IVF #2! After another surgery and a bumpy round of IVF, we were expecting twins in August 2011!!! Praise God from whom all blessings flow!!! Our sweet baby girls were born June 22, 2011 at 34 weeks due to preeclampsia. Natalie spent 5 weeks in the NICU for feeding problems and Sydney spent 6 weeks in the NICU with severe reflux and feeding problems. I feel like God used that experience to make me a better NICU nurse. I now have the perspective of a NICU parent! We are so thankful for these wonderful blessing God has given us! They were definitely "worth the wait"!
