Ordinary Miracle

Wow, it's been 6 months since I've last written anything on this blog. I'm happy to report that I've had a very successful pregnancy and am now just over 37 weeks with my twins. In less than a week I will likely be induced and I'll finally get to meet my babies... the end of a very long journey and the beginning of an even longer one.

I have to admit that infertility hasn't been on my mind that much since I've been in this new place. But I don't want to forget about it and where we came from. In cleaning out my emails yesterday I came across several updates I would send family and close friends and it reminded me of the many challenges and disappointments we faced in our two years of trying to get pregnant. I don't want to forget the many who are still struggling but also want to celebrate those who have had success through treatment or adoption. It can be such a long road for many.

At the risk of being cheesey, this song was playing in my clinic one day during a procedure that led to our BFP. It got me a little teary at the time. Conception is definitely an ordinary miracle... one that happens all the time, whether by accident or after years of trying, but it is always a miracle. I can't wait to meet mine!
