Whoa baby!




I was watching Jon and Kate Plus 8 the other day, and had an "aha" moment, as Oprah would say. They were doing a viewer question/answer session. One of the emailed questions asked them how they ended up with sextuplets...their answer was IUI. On Friday (approximately) we will be doing our 3rd IUI treatment. To be honest, I feel pretty educated with the whole IUI (also called artificial insemination) so I was well aware of the "risks" of a multiple births. However, as much as I have read and prepared, nothing spells it out quite like this:




I realize the odds are like 1 in a million, but lets be honest the odds are there. I feel like whatever Heavenly Father has in store for us we will be able to handle. But right now this is how I am feeling (and don't be afraid to join me in this): WHOOOOAAAA!!!!!!

Wow! That is a whole lot of belly! I guess the benefit is not having to go through 6 pregnancies for 6 kids. More bang for your buck, right?
Good luck to you guys!

good luck on friday. That lady at the end is REALLY big. I have seen big bellys at work, but not that big.

I thought they said it wasn't IUI. . . but you would know the terms better than me :)

By the way Sarah wanted me to let you know that she had a friend exactly like you. They couldn't find anything "wrong" but they did their first round of in vitro recently and are now pregnant with twins. . . I hope this is how it works out for you too.

I love love love that show! My husband hates it so bad! Can you imagine what that would be like? I think though, that once you have had to struggle anything more than one would be like a bonus....even if it IS a ton of work.

Let me ask you this about the whole IUI process...is it really painful, or is it mostly an emotional thing? I find all of it so amazing.

Whoa! I didn't know any of this! I mean I know about Jon and Kate, they are like my best friends (in my mind) but I didn't know you guys were doing IUI! Good luck with that I will keep you in my prayers!
ps. I saw your page on Kelseys page, I hope thats okay.
