One year Ago

One year ago, Dan and I went to Dollar Tree to load up on some pregnancy tests. I had wasted so much money in the past POAS (peeing on a stick) that I decided that this time, I was using the cheap ones.

One year ago, I snuck into the bathroom while Dan was unloading our groceries and even though I promised I wouldn't, I used the pregnancy test at 12 days past my IUI

One year ago, I walked away from the pregnancy test and came back 5 minutes later to one of the most waited for thing in the world- 2 lines

One year ago, I ran to the kitchen and shoved the test in Dan's face and we stared in disbelief. We then laughed, hugged, and stared in disbelief some more.

One year ago was the start of the rest of my life. This past year has brought so many changes and has hard as things are sometimes, I wouldn't change a thing.

We had Emma and Joshua's 4 month appointment yesterday. Here are their stats:


Weight: 12lbs 11 oz- 25th Percentile
Height: 25 inches- 75th Percentile


Weight: 14lbs 7 oz- 50th Percentile
Height: 26 1/2 inches- 95th Percentile

Although they are both in decent percentiles, they are still wearing 0-3 month clothes. I bought them some 3-6 sleepers yesterday and they fit but they are so baggy! Both of them are in Size 2 diapers and I think they will be in those for awhile.

Hope everyone is having a great week!

I do not think anyone can appreciate a pregnancy test as much as someone who has worked so hard and waited so long to see a positive.

I also enjoyed your post about the challenges of infertility especially when someone asks if you are going to have more. In my opinion it does not matter what it was clomid, IUI or IVF, when it takes so long to get pregnant, you are thrilled when you do and you have your sweet babies but there is always a part that wonders will there be more?? will I ever feel those tiny kicks?? I have been there and I know, you are so blessed but there is always that what if???

Aw, this brings tears to my eyes! Congratulations!

OMG Love the post, LOVE the photo, and can't believe what tall kids you have so far. That's amazing you can still get them into 0-3 (Anthony is long too and I have issues with him growing out of them the long way quite quickly).
They are getting so big! So beautiful!

One year ago, I cried tears of joy for you. At long last, your journey had a happy ending.

I'm so thankful you have been blessed by your sweet babies. IT is so well deserved, and I know they are very loved.
