Hey everyone! Happy ICLW... and Happy Thanksgiving! A little about myself... I am a mother of 15 month old IVF miracle twins, literally they are miracles! We were given a 1% chance of our IVF working after having ZERO fertilize. I had 29 eggs retrieved and my husband had 100 million "great looking sperm" so they left them alone in the petri dishes. The next morning I received a call from my RE... we had ZERO embryo's! You have to imagine how devastated beyond words we were. They preformed rescue ICSI right away (even though my eggs were now 24 hours old). The odds were not in our favor. We prayed and prayed. God preformed the greatest miracle of all and blessed us with not one, but TWO babies! Beyond all odds, we had our little miracles!
My pregnancy was amazing! I loved being pregnant (and secretly wish I was again!). I did yoga from week 6 to week 30 until I ended up on bed rest for a funneling cervix. Again we prayed and prayed. I kept my babies safe for 5 more weeks and delivered Rocco Gianni and Maximus Matteo on August 5 2011.
Life is crazy with twins... but I love it! I am a SAHM and Wife. I breastfed them, made all of their baby food, and still refuse to give them sugar or anything processed. I now experiment with more natural living and even make my own deodorant! I may sound a little granola, but why alter what God has provided!
I hope you follow along! Happy ICLW!
