We've got some BIG news!!!

So many of you have followed our journey to Costa Rica and Panama for IVF.  We were waiting until it was a little safer to tell people and we are now nine weeks, with...............................

TWINS!!!

This has been a long, incredible journey to be where we are right now.  When Ella was 6 months old, we decided to wean her from breastmilk so we could start trying to add to our family.  We got pregnant the cycle we started trying just for it to end in a miscarriage at 6.5 weeks.

A year later, we are here, pregnant with twins, and couldn't be happier!!!!  Our nine week appointment was today and went very well.  Their heartbeats were at a rate of 176 and 182 and they were measuring exactly as they should be!

Our due date is February 2nd, but the OB says 38 is full term for twins, so we are thinking more like January 14th, 2011.  We feel so unbelievably blessed to be expecting siblings for Ella!  Thanks everyone for your wishes and prayers, we really relied on those to get through IVF in another country.

Please keep the other family who went with us in your prayers that they get pregnant soon, T has gone through Hell and back trying to get some answers.

We will continue to do keep everyone posted on our journey.  Watch for updates more frequently now that I let the cat out of the bag!
