After 11 years, I can't believe I belong here!

Hi ladies! I am absolutely thrilled to be joining this group! After 11 years of infertility, I thought I might never be able to join one. My name is Kristy, and I am the mother of 8 amazing adopted kids and am pregnant for the first time through embryo adoption. My EDD is 2/17/12.

I got my first positive HPT last Wednesday (9 days past 3 day transfer), and got official blood confirmation on Monday. My beta was 374 and my progesterone was 16.5, so the doctor increased my progesterone from 200 mg twice daily to three times daily. I recheck progesterone on Monday and have my first ultrasound scheduled for Friday 6/24, exactly 6 weeks!

I am thrilled beyond words!

Wow! I skimmed your blog. I really respect you and your choice. All kids deserve a chance at a happy, loving family. Unfortunately, not all get it on the first try. Kudos for providing that home. I look forward to getting to know you better and sharing this journey.
