Exactly one year ago today I had my last embryo transfer while the moving company relocated all my belongings. I spent the night in a hotel with my mom and crossed my fingers that, “this time it will work”. 

Well, it did work.  After years of failed cycles and loss, I am finally a mommy to an amazing little creature and the move has been a blessing overall. There are still things and people, mostly people, that I miss, but I’m learning to like Philly more and more. 

That day one year ago changed my life and as I sit here typing this, on my phone while my daughter sleeps with my boob in her mouth, I’m sending up a prayer of thanks. I know how lucky I am and what a miracle she is. 

On her 3 month birthday we went to NYC and visited some friends for the day. It was a long day but it was so nice to introduce her to the people who were there to see the struggle. Now they get to see the reward. And I’ve decided that you can too…  I like the anonymity of this blog so I don’t think I want to share her name just yet but since all babies look pretty much alike, I don’t think there’s any harm in sharing some pictures here and there. You’re welcome!
