You have a beautiful little girl!! Just wanted to drop by and wish you lots of luck!! We have a few people going thru cycles now. (Me being one of them.) I know that my transfer is at the end of next week, but there are other ladies that are looking at August transfers, so you should definitely be able to find a cycle buddy or 2!! Good luck!!

What an interesting story, with your dd's bio mom being your donor! That's really neat!

I'm with you, family is way more than dna ... I'm adopted myself, so it was a little easier for me to move to de to conceive dd2, I think.

Good luck and baby dust for your upcoming cycle :)
