Long overdue

I have been meaning to give y'all an update for the past four months. The babies are here! I had a scheduled c-section at 37 weeks since baby girl was breech and baby boy was transverse. They were born and were blessedly healthy, baby girl was 7 lbs 3 oz and 19 inches and baby boy was 8 lbs 2 oz and 21 inches. We were so thankful to finally get them, they are beautiful. They are now four months old and growing like weeds.

I decided not to go on birth control on the off chance that I could maybe, possibly, hopefully get pregnant on my own. You know, be one of those miracle stories of someone who spends years doing fertility treatments and then magically gets pregnant on their own? Here's hoping... If that doesn't work I think I will try ivf one more time and see if I can get another miracle baby. I worry about it though, will it work again? Is waiting a year going to be too long? Will I have any eggs left by that point? I try to remind myself that I have two beautiful babies and if I don't get anymore that it will be ok. But the reality of possibly giving up the dreams for a big family is hard. I hope you are all well. I think of you often.
