The Party has started!
I was up early this morning to get to the lab for blood tests. Then to OB’s office for the ultrasound. None of it is fun, least of all the uber early morning, but I’ll do it for my babies. This monitoring is about checking how my body is doing and figuring out when the optimal time for transfer is. What came of today’s monitoring? Keep taking the estrogen and do the monitoring again next week. :::sigh::: I did this for Mr Wigglesworth and survived, I will survive it this time around, too.
I’ve had several people ask “what if none of the babies make it?” This is it. We adopted a sibling set of 5 babies, and with this transfer, we will have given each baby the best chance we could to live and thrive. And yes, we are thinking about the various ‘what if…’ possibilities. I can get stuck on these things, so I’ve learned to get it all on paper, and I did. The key point is ‘if none… time to grieve, adjust thoughts to “mom of 2″‘. And if God gives us 1, 2 or 3 of these babies to bring home and raise, that will take adjustment, too!
In the end, this is a journey. And in the journey, we cannot get so caught up in one part of it that we lose sight of the other parts. Life goes on. Little boys still need to get out side to dig in the dirt, and Mom-moms still gotta feed their own minds so they can feed the little minds in their care.
