Twins For Us! Thank You God, Embryo Donors, and NEDC

by Kris

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!

You are their biological mother
by: Anonymous

You actually are also the biological mother to your twins. Not the genetic mother-- but since you gave birth to them-- you are their biological mother!

You're so right!

I really appreciate your comment about God giving you double for your trouble. My husband and I have dealt with 4 years of infertility and now through IVF I am pregnant with twins! I remember being so down thinking nothing will work after all that we've been through, but God does answer prayers, not in our time frame but his! Congratulations to you!
