Fourteen weeks old! Loving every minute!

Maybe this is cliche, but, dear readers, I am truly loving every minute with my beautiful little A.  I hold her and watch her sleep, and have to force myself to put her down in her crib.  I smell her baby smell.  And she's smiling now -- smiling!  It is the most heartwarming thing in the world.  Oh, and the way her entire body wiggles with excitement when she plays with her kick and play piano?  I myself want to squeal with delight.

A sleeps through the night most nights, which is wonderful timing considering I am about to embark on six weeks of Q4 call.

I'll write more later, hopefully.  But work calls...


  1. So good to hear from you and hear the joy in your "voice"!

  4. I have PCOS and I know how it feels. I've been in treatment for years. Unfortunately it brought zero result. I'm currently pregnant with twins from donor egg. I should say now I have no feeling my babies are not mine genetically. To be honest I had some doubts. I didn't know how I feel about the procedure... I thought maybe I should wait and try something else and it will help me to get pregnant. But we'd found out that the likelihood of having our own children was practically zero. So ivf with donor egg was our last and only one option. I have a very 'modern' family with step parents/brothers/sisters, half siblings and step nieces and nephews etc. Genetics really means nothing to me. People who raise and love you are your true family. In the beginning my dh wasn't fully on board. We had some very serious arguments about the procedure. But when he found out I was pregnant everything in him changed! The babies I'm carrying are our children and will always be ours. It's such a hard decision to make, I know. Only you will ever know if it's right for you or not as it's not right for some people. I look at it like at usual treatment of infertility. Doctors just help you a little bit. And then you carry/ give birth/ raise - do what usual parents do. We still haven't decided whether or not we'll ever tell the babies about the donor. But we're definitely not telling anyone else how we came to be pregnant. It's only our business. I don't see something super special in it so everyone should know. These babies are mine. I really feel it and I don't make myself to do so)
