Did it, Did it, Did it! Ack!

We've been on the "do we, don't we?" baby #3 merry-go-round for about a year now. I knew trying to convince myself I didn't want to give birth to a baby wouldn't work, but I started thinking about all the reasons things are already hard with two (financially and logistically) and why am I so special that I need a bio-babe when I already have two awesomely delicious kids. At the end of the day though, I feel like there's really no logic in the decision to have a baby or not. I want to have a baby, and if I don't, I know I'll regret it.

So I made the appointment with the fertility doctor today. We go in next month for our consultation. It'll be the same place we went for the girls with the same doctor. This time, we're going straight for IVF. With our donor not around, we need to conserve the vials we have and use them wisely. So many months of trying last time were so disheartening- plus who can do all those appointments for months with two small children!

I just really pray this works right away. Please please please. Since I decided I wanted to go for it, I've been seeing 11:11 often again, just like I did when we were trying to get pregnant with our girls. I believe this is a positive sign.

If you did IVF, did you do acupuncture too? At what point in the process did you start acupuncture treatments!

Happy birthday to two delicious girls!

Our girls turn two today! This picture was taken yesterday when Zazie took them for ice cream (it was strawberry, in case you're curious). We can't believe how lucky we are. Happy birthday, E and R.

I have so much catching up to do here, I just need to wrest the computer from Zazie's hands.
