The final countdown…

The final 12 weeks flew by! We are in the final stretch of this marathon and it was slowly starting to sink in that we were about to become mommies! I worked until I was 36 weeks then spent a majority of my time getting everything prepared, swimming to beat the 100-degree weather and walking. […]

One down, two to go!

After fourteen glorious weeks of feeling like I was a zombie, the second trimester came around quickly and I felt like a whole new pregnant woman!

How did we pick our donor?

Picking out a sperm donor is a lot like online dating, only, rather than focusing on their hobbies and interests, you’re looking at their medical information and family background. It’s the one time in your life that it is okay to be extremely judgmental, because after all, if you are paying a lot of money […]

Where do we begin?

We always knew that we wanted to start a family. We would always talk about where we want to raise our babies, what dream vacations we would take them on, and even bought baby Buzz Lightyear vans many years prior to actually starting our family. In the very beginning of our relationship, it was always […]
