             * the kids are showing me their surro babys*

*I told the kids theres a baby in my tummy. Thomas lifted my shirt said "wheres the baby" And"its stuck". Pushed on my belly and said baby come out now! I told him it needs to grow and get strong he goes oh they need to eat and go poopy. Lol he also thinks that when he pokes me inside my belly button hes poking the baby! Lol

Double Bubble Toil and Trouble.

Well as most know we are happy to announce WE ARE PREGNANT!!! We started getting positives at 5 days post transfer. Those who dont know much about IVF thats super earlie. They have been dark since day 9. We went in today for out BETA and the number where shocking!!!


I knew they would be high due to how I have been feeling and the tests but 467?!?!?! With that Number we very well will be looking at TWINS or MORE!!!

Lately I have been feeling very tired and emotional. Im already feeling bloated and tighter inside but that could be the meds too. Time will tell.

With God all things are possible.. and our faith got us this far.

We go back Wednesday for another BETA and to check Progesterone and such to make sure Im taking enough. Then we set up OUR ULTRASOUND!!!!!

Its my Belly and Their Baby (s)

From the bottom of my heart 2

The last 2 weeks of my life has been nothing but CHAOS. I had to say goodbye to a man I looked at as my dad. A man that raised me and took care of me and was there when I needed him the most.. or just to talk. My papa fell from a ladder Friday late afternoon trying to paint his house. He had sever brain damage and was flown to St Cloud Hospital and was on life support. On Saturday we got the worst news that there was nothing that could be done. After surgery to take out to blood clot and relieve the pressure there was too much damage. At 725pm I said Goodbye to the most important man in my life. He was my dad. .

The transfer landed on the Day of the wake and the funeral was the next day. There was no working around it. I got up earlie and got ready to go to Fargo Thurday morning. Did the routine of no smelly shampoos clothes ect.
Nick went with me this time and my mother in law watched the kids. It was different this time but in a good way. We knew what to expect with everything but we changed so much that it was different as well.
Nick Making me giggle as usual

 Sam and I

Into my pelvis

It wasn't too bad... the worst one was the "mother one" in my right leg. That one stung a bit but soooo worth it.They had to flick the needle before during and after.

I am who I am

Love 2
 I must say my face says it all. Prepping me for the embryos.



After the transfer I came home and get ready for the wake. Sam came down and we spent the 2 days I was on bed rest together. It was so challenging going through the wake and funeral but knowing I had to hold myself together for these 2 little ones I must say it really did help me keep level headed. With the help of my amazing family and friends I was able to do this in a way I was able to still get peace and was able to grieve. . When we where at the hospital I was able to let it all out without the worrie of the babies. God had this happen for a reason....

I cant put into words how much I love and appreciate everyone that has been here for me the last 2 years. One with my mother passing away a year and 7 months ago and now papa. The support love and acceptance. The way my uncle wouldn't let me carry even the lightest bag. My MeeMaw (grandma Karla) willing to bring the wheel chair. Sam spending time with me and my family through the good and bad. My sister and brother being there when living an hour to 4 hours away. To friends that came to the funeral and the wake. That touched my heart to deeply it brings me to tears right now.
A family friend and pastor coming to the hospital in the middle of the night to be with us after he got hurt... Not letting us be alone in our pain... People who stopped by brought goodies. Helped with making food for the funeral and helping with my kids and Zoe. The Brandon Fire Department who offered to finish painting his house so Karla and Zoe don't have to worry.  God I thank each and every one of you to the bottom of my heart and back. There are so many amazing beautiful people around me and I am so blessed. God broke my heart by taking my papa (dad) but he mended it with the love and compassion of all the people in my life that care. I truly believe they where placed in my life for these very reasons. I could go on and on about all these amazing people but even then I couldn't describe the love I have.

Now we wait for the blood results next week <3 Please pray for high numbers

Love you <3

The date is set!

About 2 weeks ago I went to Fargo to meet with the acupuncturist and the clinic. Yes we are going to do acupuncture this time. Im a little nervous but Ive had alot of great people to talk to about it that has done it themselves. We are pulling out the big guns here folks haha

Acupuncture raises our chances for a positive pregnancy test by 15% to 20%. There will be 9 needles in my body at the beginning of the transfer

3-pubic bone
1-over foot
3-inside lower leg.

During the Transfer they will take the ones in my pubic bone out and take out 1 set (2) from my lower leg.

After  they will put another set of 2 in my inner leg one outside and below my knee and one above the knee. The rest stay in while I rest on the table for 20 to 30 min or so.

Possible bruising can happen.

I had my appointment today with blood work and an ultrasound and Im already 10mm thick!! So you know thats an awesome number. Im feeling it get larger and heavier inside me. Like Im pregnant with out all the sides to it =).

That heavy bloated internal feeling.

The transfer will be next week so say lots of prayers for us and hopefully in a couple weeks we will have HUGE numbers and they double every 2 days!!!

<3 Love
