Hi!

It has been awhile. We have been very busy. I am finishing residency. We are trying IVF - though I must say that it is a huge PIA and I doubt we will do this more than once. They think that our infertility troubles are boy related, but it is controversial. Our RE still wonders (aloud) if we would get pregnant on our own but it has been two years... so... we are going this route. It has been rather frustrating at times, but we are doing all we can.

Also, we are moving to Minnesota. My parents are devastated. My DH parents are super excited to have their only grandchild in town. It sounds like the perfect position for me or we wouldn't have taken it. We are finally going to have a house - 5 bedrooms in case this IVF stuff works out (and adoption if it doesn't). We are renting for now until we decide if we are going to stay.

Luke is doing great. His latest achievement is singing "take me out to the ball game." I am excited about starting him in a Montessori school up in St. Cloud, MN.

I know a lot of you are up-to-date, since I see you on facebook... but not everyone. I have found my way back to the board - mostly on the IVF page.

I can't wait to read all your updates!

**********************************************UPDATE!!
Yup! Its twins! We are excited and scared.

Minnesota is AWESOME! Seriously. I lived there until I was 12 and then throughout college and 2 years after college. I'd move back in a heartbeat. The weather will be the biggest adjustment for you, I'm guessing. I hope the move goes smoothly!

Good luck with IVF. Please KUP!

Beth,
Thanks. I am really hoping this one works. I see you have had a miscarriage and a baby in the interim and are pregnant again. What a crazy time it has been for you! Hope everything is going well.

And yes, almost finished and moving to Minnesota this July.

Two. It was quite an issue of controversy in our household. But we just asked the RE what he would do and he said two. I definitely think it is twins (hopefully not more) based on my initial HCG numbers. Unlike my pregnancy with Luke, I have a scan at 7 weeks so we can see what is growing. Its going to be a hard 12 day wait.

P.S. Your boys are so cute. I can't believe how fast they are growing up.

I can't wait to post an update. Appointment is in the afternoon, so I won't post anything until tomorrow night. Twins sounds exhausting to me, but I think at least we would call our family complete after that.
