Baby girls turns 1 and a special announcement!!
Well little girl just turned the big "1" about a week and half ago. I still cannot believe how fast the last year has gone! She has been a complete joy to raise and seems to be trying to grow up quicker than her brothers did at her age. She started walking at 8 months and now at a year is running and into everything.LOL She started talking early too. I was hoping I would be able to savor a bit more baby hood but she has other plans ;-) I am not sure how many people are still really following this blog but for those of you that are I have a special announcement.A month and a half ago we got back on the waiting list for donor embryos!! Yes I know we are crazy for wanting more kids,or atleast that is what some people would say. But I have always wanted a large family and I thought that infertilty had taken that dream from me. Hubby and I dream about several grand children in the future to share the holidays with and the support system our children will have in each other. We were told when we got on the list that it could be a 9-12 months wait which I was okay with since I am currently in the process of losing the rest of my pregnancy weight. I am down 10 pounds but need to lose more. We figured we might as well wait while we are not ready to to move forward so it won't be such a hard wait.The office did say that I could call anytime and ask where we were at in our wait approximately so I did so yesterday. They said that they are guessing that we have about 6 months left, maybe more. There are a lot of factors that go into how the list plays out like people who pass on sets of embryos due to all kids of factors like medical history of donors,quality of set, number in set,race,hair /eye color, location of donor or other living child from donor (cannot be within 30 miles of another child). Also others that are currently pregnant tenatively stay on the list until the get to about 12 weeks,just in case.Anyways here we go again we are currently waiting and also excited even though it will probably be several months before we get matched but in the meantime I will be trying to get healthier so I am ready when they are :-)
