A big anniversary.

I blogged more about this, along with TONS of additional pictures, on my other blog. (I spent ~so~ much time doing today's post there, if you have a moment and don't mind looking at totally triggery pictures, meaning pregnant and baby pictures, please take a look? My other blog barely has any readership and I'm really proud of that post!)

One year ago (cinco de mayo) was the anniversary of the big transfer.

The day was surreal. And although 3 of my little embryos didn't make it, 1 very important one did. Thank you universe.

It's funny. I've been feeling really shit upon from the world in the past weeks. And then a date like this is here and all of the shit seems stupid.

To my little embryos, thank you. Thank you for all four of you. Thank you for allowing me to freeze you. Thank you for surviving the terrible thaw. Thank you to the three of you for keeping your brother company. And thank you 'ringo' (which we believe is the top left one) for sticking around. I love you all.

Infertility sucks but these little milestones/anniversaries are always so special.

Happy anniversary! What a beautiful one to celebrate, too!

Even though you have a little man to prove it, I cannot believe that it has been a year. I remember following along with your transfer because I was newly pregnant but not able to share the news yet and I was hoping that you'd make it this time.

Congrats!

I really hope that in about a year, Chance will be able to write a similar post. Happy anniversary to you and Karl, the little embryo who could.

Jen said...

I remember this like it just happened. I remember when you postd I hoped and hoped that you were going to get a sweet little baby. I remember I had my fingers crossed for you.

What a great way to celebrate something so special.

Oh and Karl is getting so big and is cute as ever!!
