first trimester down

I am officially through the first trimester, and so, so thankful.  The twins are still doing beautifully.  Every day seems like another miracle...another day closer to viability.

I did start a non-anonymous blog for family and friends, and was extremely honest about our path to this pregnancy.  And, I'm happy to report, that I have gotten the most amazing feedback.  Sharing our story has touched so many people and even led some to share their own stories with me.  Thank you for all of your encouragement to be honest--definitely the right decision.

  1. Congrats on reaching the 2nd trimester! That's so very exciting! And I'm so proud of you for being honest about your history with your family and friends. I think it's wonderful that you're honest, not only for you and your relationships, but also for the rest of us infertiles out there. If we can all be open, then maybe it will get easier for us. Yay!!!

  2. Congratulations!!! A HUGE milestone. :)
    I'm so glad you decided to share your story with your friends and family. I too had an anonymous blog during our TTC journey. Having triplets means the first question out of everyone's mouth is, 'did you do fertility treatments?' While I still think it is rude--I'm not ashamed that we did fertility treatments---it gave us our three amazing miracles---and if my story gives someone hope during a time when hope seems unlikely (just as your story can/does) then it is worth it to break the silence. Our children were created out of so much love and I think someday they will understand how special they are because of it. :)

  5. HUGE milestone! So excited for you! It is really hard to be open and honest about infertility but I think if we were all more open in our lives then maybe people would understand it a little more. Congrats!
