Maybe Baby: Make It a Triple


Today was a happy day for me. Today I said good bye to infertility. Of course infertility will always be a large part of my story, it is no longer part of my future, and that makes me happy. No matter the outcome of the transfer, I don't EVER have to deal with the ache of wanting another baby and having to fight with my body to make it happen.

That being said, I know all of you Maybe Baby followers are anxious to hear about the transfer that kept being postponed.

If-y (AKA: Slow-Poke) did grow another cell or two yesterday, but still never caught up with Maybe or Why-Not. Maybe and Why-Not were brought to room temperature. When I inquired about how they were doing, the embryologist told me they looked good but they don't hold them out to watch like they do the younger embryos. So all she could tell me was they survived the thawing process. I asked the doctor if we added Slow-Poke to the mix if he would do any harm. She said no. So Slow-Poke, Maybe and Why-Not were all placed inside my womb with a long skinny catheter. It was very romantic. Right before the embryologist loaded the catheter, she told me that Why-Not was already dividing. She said that was a good sign. Our Dr. said that theoretically triplets are a possibility but extremely unlikely. He even added that twins were also extremely unlikely. So take a deep breath America I am still on schedule for not having a reality TV show.

We make beautiful babies together.

While waiting for the transfer, I told Matt that the ultra sound prob looked like a micro phone. He dared me to try it out.



Never dare me!


Pregnancy test date is August 31.

Amazing Becca. I am super excited for the outcome of this story. What an amazing testimony. So hoping for a positive pregnancy test.

I love that I can tell people I know exactly when you got pregnant...now THAT could be a conversation stopper.
