Happy Thanksgiving!

It's a banner year for the Wheat household. We found out yesterday that the IVF worked. It freaking WORKED. The RE gave us a 10-15% chance of success, and we snagged the brass ring. What's more, the sonogram showed not one but TWO little sacs, and TWO little heartbeats. Sac 1 is measuring right on target. Sac 2 is lagging about a week behind, so the docs warned us that it could be "resorbed" by my body. We'll know more at the 8-week sono, scheduled for December 10.

I can't begin to tell you how lucky I feel. As I posted months ago, I was originally given a 5% chance of ever having another child from my own eggs. 2008 brought us two unsuccessful IUIs and one unsuccessful IVF. This second IVF was our last attempt. I was looking forward to buying myself a bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue as a consolation prize. Then I got the two blue lines and refused to believe my good fortune until yesterday's 6-week sono proved it. We're not out of the woods yet, obviously, but I'm hopeful, optimistic, and above all, very, VERY thankful. I hope you too find reason for deep, heartfelt thanks this year.
