Conception Day

Four years ago today Ivy was conceived, in the lab at OHSU, while I recovered from my egg retrieval. 32 eggs and Ivy was the champion. It's been a long four years (and also feels like it was just yesterday), and while looking back at how much heartache we suffered is hard, I feel like I'm the luckiest mama in the world.

  1. That's just so amazing. Very few people can say that they existed for three and a bit years before being born!! ; ) Congratulations Ivy - Happy Conception Day!!!xx

    1. It's so crazy! It's also fun to think that we drove her across town before I was pregnant, from one clinic to another. She has had a lot of adventures!
