Springtime and Renewal

You guys should see the view from my window right now. It's gorgeous. The sun keeps peeking out of the clouds leftover from last night. The ground is still a little soggy after an evening of rain. Chilly, but warm enough that we've dared to crack open a few windows. It smells like spring. I know the sidewalks will be filled with walkers, joggers, strollers by midday. I wish I were one of them!

But I'll be taking it easy for another day. Transfer was Thursday and it went seamlessly. Besides my full bladder, I didn't even feel it (but I do have the ultrasound to prove that they're there). Four embryos thawed, two survived and cleaved nicely. They're chillin' up in my ute.

How to describe this time around? I'm feeling calm. Really calm. Bolstered by my lining "score" and this wonderful sense of support. Timing feels right. My in laws hung out with us Thursday night. My parents (in town for a funeral) paid a visit last night - both sets eager, excited, I could almost feel them willing it so.

I'm feeling thankful. And lucky. And sure, I'll say it, blessed.

Beta is on the 27th.

Let's here it for beautiful embies!!!

Here's hoping that one/both of them decide that your ute is a cozy place to be for 9 months.
