9/10 Weeks

IMG_6332Tonight will be my last progesterone shot. Shot #102 since we started IVF in August.  Someone please celebrate with a glass of wine (or a fireball shot) for me!

I will be celebrating with some pizza & pumpkin carving! This is a huge milestone & the thought of a life without shots makes me smile!  I haven’t been able to sleep on my sides at night due to sore butt cheeks.  This is exciting!

This marks the complete end of my IVF journey.  A journey that began when I was in despair after 5 failed IUI’s & years of TTC.  A journey that I never in my wildest dreams thought I would have to go through.  A journey that has opened a whole new world to me on the struggles with infertility.  Something that couples are struggling with everyday.  The more I talk about it, the more people I encounter that have had the same issues.  Like seriously, is it in the water?

 Mitchell & I couldn’t have asked for a better experience when it came to IVF.  It was hard, don’t get me wrong.  The shots, the meds, the worry, the scheduling, the constant traveling, the expense… it was hard. But we have not one, BUT TWO babies as a result!  Prayers answered!  I wish I knew the proper way to thank Dr. Phy.  What do you buy someone who just made all your dreams come true? Like a candle? A boat? HaHa


It is so bitter sweet. I am ready to “graduate” from TTUHSC on Nov 6, but not being able to see these nurses & doctors throughout the rest of this pregnancy makes me sad. I can’t wait for the day when I can take the twins to go see Dr. Phy. (literal tears are coming down as I am typing this)

I am so thankful for these people.


 I feel like a whole new person since this experience began.

Stronger.  Wiser.  Fierce.

I know that sounds cheesy as hell, but that’s how I feel.  I think it is some mommy instincts kicking in as well, but I feel like I could take on the world!

I am 10 weeks today and each day is a blessing.

Now that this is all said & done, so far, I am ready to sit back & enjoy the next 7 months!


Thank yall so much for the support & continued prayers!


Xoxo- Ashlee
