Twin Adventures

Twin girls now rule the house.

The Road to Babies

My first post is a little late; my twin girls were born June 16th, almost three months ago.

Life with two extra small people has been great. Certainly different; a change, but great. Every day is filled with two of everything. Two diapers per change, two bottles per feeding, two outfits every morning and night. At times two is a little much but looking back, I wouldn’t change anything.

Our baby journey started with infertility, I had my fallopian tubes removed when I was eleven. The nice thing about that was we knew what was wrong and we knew how to go about fixing it. IVF. In-vitro fertilization. Victoria Fertility Clinic was our saving grace. We were lucky. It only took us six months and two attempts to get pregnant. I know plenty of women go through years and years of trying, but even just those few months of daily hormone injections and the few side effects that come with them were hard to take at times. I’m grateful that my husband was by my side through all of it.

The embryos didn’t make it through for the first round. No matter how you much you prepare yourself, getting the news that you aren’t pregnant after all of that is devastating. But after a day of being miserable and upset, I was ready to get back on the horse and go through it all again. My specialist switched up the hormones I was taking and a month later, we started the process over. We were determined to have a baby!

This time around, I was too anxious to take an at home pregnancy test, so we had to wait to get my blood results back. I was absolutely ecstatic when I got the news that this round of ivf had worked! The next few weeks was all about waiting for the first ultrasound, to see if we had gotten ourselves one or two babies! Lo and behold.. two little dark circles appeared on the screen in the ultrasound room. At the time, no nerves were present, I was just happy to know that we’d be having a baby two babies.
