They're Here!!!

The twins that is! My cousin, Amy, had her boy/girl (IVF) twins on Sunday!!! After four days of induction, she was not responding to the medication and they had to do a C-Section. Colton Thomas weighed 5 pounds, 15 ounces & Reagan Elizabeth weighed 6 pounds, 2 ounces. Both babies are healthy and beautiful. We are giving her a few days of recovery and then going to visit-can't wait to see them!

As I wrote before, Amy is 37 and she and her husband have been trying for a baby for about 5 years. Amy has mild PCOS and her husband has severe male factor issues (as in, needing a fine needle aspiration to get any seamen). Their only hope was IVF and the first round was a success. They were originally pregnant with triplets, but sadly one did not grow past 10 weeks. I'm so happy for Amy and Tom, especially knowing what they went through!

And another infertility miracle is close to be on his way as well. My sister-in-law in Australia is due on August 6th with her son. Veronica has pcos, severe endometriosis and her husband has male factor issues. Talk about a triple whammy! Veronica went through five, yes-I said FIVE-rounds of IVF before getting pregnant. Even more unbelievable is that they canceled her cycle because she only had one follicle! Looks like it was "the one"! We are going to Australia, leaving on the 27th of July, to make it in time for the baby's birth...cannot wait :)

Keep the faith. It will happen. Something will work. Keep going. These two ladies I just told you about never thought it would happen for them and now look. Things can change in an instant. It's normal to think that it will never happen. But that does not mean that it won't!

 Cheesin' for the camera 

 A day at the pool. Why can they never look at me?
