Graduation Day

Well, we finally did it. Eight days shy of the anniversary of our first appointment, we graduated from our RE. We went in this morning and got to see our baby once again...growing just as he should and heart beating nice and fast (166).

Our doctor commended us on being so strong and persevering through all of this, even though we had so many reasons not to...how easy it would've been for us to give up...he said it's a true indication of what great parents we will be. It was such a bittersweet visit...we really love the staff there and it's going to be SO weird not to have to 'live' there the way we have been for the past year.

Depending on my bloodwork results from today I MIGHT have to go back in 2 days for f/u bloodwork for my progesterone level...but officially we are graduates :)

First OB appointment is on Thursday...yikes!

Can a weekend get any better? I had a great birthday...my boys in BLUE pulled off one of the biggest upsets in sports...and Frank and I made it through the biggest struggle of our lives.

Life is good.
