YOU GUYS!!! While I type this I’M PREGNANT!!! I can’t believe I have 2 tiny miracles making themselves home inside my tummy. It’s such a surreal and exciting experience. Thank you Jesus, for these precious babies!
Yesterday feels like a dream. The night before the transfer I was actually able to get decent sleep. The whole night and day I had this incredible sense of peace that I know can only come from God. At first I was afraid that I was not emotionally attaching to this transfer like I did our first one, but I really think God put a huge amount of peace on my heart.
MK called me first thing yesterday morning and said that she was praying for us all day. She was in tears and told me that she was so proud of Gannon and I and how strong our faith has been during this journey. She told me she wished she could be there with us today, but that she was there in spirit! She ended the calling saying love you babe. It means so much to me to know that even our medical team is praying and truly loves and care for us. It makes this whole process worth it just to have support like that!
Since our transfer wasn’t until 1 we had plenty of time in the morning to prepare. It was nice to be able to wake up and truly reflect on the day. Gannon and I started a new devotion together on the bible app called, “Pregnancy Prayers- Praying for your baby” and it’s 2 WEEKS long!! How perfect is that?! So we did our devotion together, spent the morning in prayer and loaded up for OKC.
Here is part of the prayer for our babies in our devotion. I love it!!
We had a little bit of time to kill so we ran to the outlet mall. Since I am putting my trust in the Lord and believing this is going to work I decided to buy two little outfits at Gap. I got a little boy and girl one! And I found the cutest little Nike shoes so I grabbed those up too!
After that it was time to head to the lab. We got there right at 12:30 and it was basically go time. Kendra, who was our embryologist last time called us back and told us all about our babies. It was so special getting to have the same embryologist as last time because she knows our story. She kept going on about how great these embryos looked and said she was really excited for our BC embryo. Before they froze the embryo it had started to hatch and looked like a snowman which is amazing news! If it’s hatching it just means it’s developing on track and is a great indicator that it will continue to hatch after it transfers. The front desk ladies even said they were all bragging on my embryos when I left. So it was really exciting!
Here is a picture of our sweet babies!!
Kendra said her and Dr B had been talking in depth about me and were so hopeful for this transfer. She really couldn’t stress it enough that they were really excited for us and these babies. It gave us an incredible sense of peace!
After we talked to Kendra it was time to gear up for the transfer. I had to undress from the waist down and Gannon had to put on a funny white suit! Then it was time to go back.

When we got in the lab I got settled on the table. Dr K, who did our last transfer came in and started to get things rolling. The process is not the most comfortable, but luckily it only lasted about 15 minutes! During the transfer Gannon took the time to hear about Dr K’s history. He said he and Dr B have been working together since 1985.
Gannon asked if the transfers have always been the same or if they have changed throughout the years. Dr K said that a case like mine was much different back in the day. Because I have a retroverted and tilted uterus, my procedure would have been a lot different. He said I would have had to get on my KNEES for the actual transfer so they could access my uterus better. Um, no thank you! I literally started laughing because I can’t imagine the poor trauma women before us have gone through. PTL I get to lay on my back during our transfer!
When the transfer was finally over Kendra said, “Yay I’m so excited!!” And then she laughed and said oh my gosh I’ve never said that before! It was really funny! They finally wheeled me out of the room and I had to rest for 1 hour so those babies could get nice and snuggled in! Then it was time to head home! I basically slept the entire car ride home. I forgot how emotionally exhausting that whole process can be.
Getting wheeled out after the transfer!
We decided to drive home that same day because it’s so much easier to be able to relax in your own home! So now I am going to take it easy for the next few days.
Guys, yesterday we felt an incredible sense of peace and we know it’s because of each and everyone of your prayers. We have never felt so much love and support in our entire lives. We have read through each comment and truly are blown away by your precious hearts. Thank you guys for loving us through this journey.
We are praying these next days fly by and March 9th will be here before we know it!
I made a little video to document yesterday and wanted to share it with you all!
Hope you all have a blessed weekend!!
