32 weeks pregnant!

When I started this blog back in the spring, I had high hopes of updating it regularly as a space dedicated entirely to donor egg stuff. Then I got pregnant, stayed pregnant, got excited, stayed excited, and focused on my main blog.

I am 32 weeks pregnant, carrying donor egg bank twin girls who look perfect and healthy. There appears to be no sign (knock on wood) of pre-term labor or any other problems. We are counting our blessings every day and hoping we get to 35 weeks, which is when we're told we probably won't need a NICU stay and can deliver at the local hospital rather than one further away that has a NICU.

This has been a thrilling experience but the one thing I will mention is that NOT ONCE have I wished I was carrying non-DE babies. I love that we made the decision to go with donor eggs. I love that it worked. I love my daughters. There will be bumps in the road and things we'll have to deal with that DNA-linked moms won't have to deal with, but we'll deal with them in stride. We're not scared of them and we don't think about them. Right now, all we dwell on is that we are pregnant and over-the-moon excited.

Transfer was a success!

Two beautiful blasts, officially a 4AA and a 5AA (but more like two 5AAs by transfer) were successfully transferred yesterday. They are beautiful and I am so in love with them.

Beta on 4/12.
