26 weeks tomorrow

We have company from the US coming tomorrow and they'll be with us for 10 days. I'm excited as they are bringing a package from my Dad that has some really cute stuff for Superbaby I bought online. It'll be nice to see them too LOL.

So Superbaby found his toes and every time I change him, or he is laying down his foot goes into his mouth. Not only does it go in, but he sucks his toes like they are his pacifier! Its too funny and so cute as you see below.

Hard to believe he will be 6 months old next week. I look at him and see so much wisdom, yes I see it already. I think he is going to be like Super S in so many ways. A thinker, an observer, intelligent and wise. He is always quiet when we are out like he is really studying things not just looking like a baby does. My wise little man, keep eating them toes!

So I may not be posting too much for the next week, like I am now LOL, as we'll be busy with guests and travelling around Egypt too. We will go to Alexandria for the day and then to our beloved Dahab of course for a few days. We are so excited to take Superbaby there. I remember how much we've talked about him there and daydreamed of him being there with us. Last year during my 2ww we were there, I etched his name in the sand.

Here's a Thursday question for you... if you were successful at IVF and and it brought you your miracle, would you try again? Either by using embryos that you have on ice or starting a completely new cycle? Or are you just thankful and don't want to put yourself through the pain and agony again? Then again it could bring you yet another miracle, or not.

Have a great weekend. xoxo


  1. If I'd ended up with one instead of two, and if I'd had embryos on ice, I absolutely would have keep going, at the very minimum transferring the frozen embryos. Given your history, part of me would be afraid that it would take many more tries, but another part of me would be optimistic that they'd finally figured out the right protocol and it wouldn't be nearly so difficult this time around.

    I guess it depends on whether you can truly feel done with one or whether you want to have SuperBaby to have a SuperSibling. And money, and age, and what you can handle emotionally, etc.

    But I have to say, whenever you do decide that you are done with treatments forever, it is so liberating. Though you like your RE more than most of us like ours!

    Hope you have a great time with your visitors... and don't forget that a certain special post is coming next week so maybe you can schedule it in advance. ;)

  2. He's so adorable! I can't wait till Oliver does the same! Have a great time with your friends, and yes it'll be amazing to bring Super Baby to Dahab, it's such a meaningful place for you and please do post pics when you came back!

    On the IVF. Well, we'll go again. Full cycle as I have no embryos left. Still debating whether to go after the summer and do elective freezing and transfer early next year, or wait till next year, or just go transfer straight away. Love, Fran

  3. Yay for company :-) That will be such a treat for you guys!

    And he is an amazing little guy :-)

    As for the IVF. That is something that has been weighing heavily on my mind, honestly. We have 3 frosties. And it would take us a while to save up to do a transfer. And they would put me on bedrest the whole time. And if it doesn't work...I don't know if I could handle that. There are so many things to consider...people are already asking us if we are going to have if it is that easy. I wish! Sorry, can of worms.

  4. :) So cute. Hope you have a wonderful time with your company!

  5. yes, if we didn't have the twins, I would have tried again with the frosties. I know I would have. We could not have afforded to do a fresh cycle again, but the FET, for sure.

    I couldn't even get past that picture of that gorgeous son of yours...he is simply beautiful. I love that picture of him...I know it makes you smile when you see it because I haven't stopped smiling since I saw it. :)

  6. He's so beautiful! I am so glad you are so happy. :)

  7. He's such a cutie! Happy half-birthday, Superbaby!

  8. Personally I´m going to try again, as it worked in the first IVF-ICSI.
    But I´m not going to use a lot of energy and time into it, if it won´t work in 3-5 IVF cycles I will stop and be grateful for what I have. The reason for that is that I don´t want to spend my sweet little girls childhood on hormones, upset that things aren´t working instead of focusing on her and enjoying live with her. I already feel guilty of thinking about another IVF-ICSI as it will take time/energi away from her. I will be working full time from this fall, (40 hours a week, with 4 week summer holiday a year).

    I wan´t all my time spent with her to be a joyous time, not a time where I´m sad/stressed that it is not working to add a sibling.

    On the other hand I do want her to enjoy having a brother or a sister so I will try, but try not to be obsessed about it.

  9. oh he's just edible, so cute!

    umm well you know our story with D being a miracle nautral conception before starting IVF, we never really got there. We are going for IVF for #2 so if he had been IVF and we had frosties there would be no question of us using them.

    If this IVF is successful and we have frosties left over we'll go one more - although we won't go an extra fresh cycle if we're left with no frosties.

    D is a miracle, an amazing gift but I feel that our family is not complete, I desperately want him to have a sibling to share with and we have never seriously considered stopping at one - he was worth 6 years of heartache and I want him to have the best life and imo having a sibling is an amazing thing/

  10. Enjoy your visitors and travels!

    Omg, his foot looks delicious. I wouldn't be able to resist it either. :)

    About IVF, I've always wanted 3 children so I plan to try again. I only have one on ice so I'm not sure what I would do. Then again, I certainly wouldn't want twins again so maybe a SET is what I would do anyway. I definitely want to give my embie a chance at life. Curious to hear your thoughts.

  11. Superbaby so so cute! So lovely to hear from you - glad to hear all is well xx
