Twins For Us! Thank You God, Embryo Donors, and NEDC
We embarked on a journey of embryo adoption in of September 2010, and March of 2011 we had two donated embryos transferred at the NEDC in TN.
We have a three year old daughter and wanted to give having another just one last chance. Even though we knew there was a chance of twins, we were still surprised when we got the news at ultrasound.
The first trimester was hard with fatigue and nausea but it seems a distant memory now that we are at 26 weeks. I am now on modified bed rest, and this has also been challenging, but well worth it. The bed rest is a precaution to avoid premature labor though we havn't had any complications so far. I can relate to the other post as far as the insomnia, but figure it is good training for sleepless nights ahead!
I feel very blessed to be given another chance at motherhood having had a bit of a past and not getting married until age 39. I was 42 when we had our biological daughter and that makes me 45 now, the very top age limit to qualify for embryo adoption.
I heard this today, that God can give us double for our trouble. And I really believe that whatever trouble we have had in our life, if we trust God amazing changes can happen. Double changes in our case!
