We have two embryos.


Out of the seven eggs that were able to be retrieved, two were successfully fertilized. They are safely tucked away, not to be seen again until P and I are ready to welcome children who will never know the forever depth to which we already love them.

I am such an absolutely lucky girl.A lucky girl who barely fits into her jeans because of swelling from the hormonies (inhaling cucumber and pineapple to try to combat this...not together of course, yummy nonetheless).

While I spent the weekend lying in bed, wrapped around a heating pad and watching Kitchen Nightmares reruns on Hulu, my mind was on babies. This is supremely weird if you have ever met me face to face.

Here are a few things that come in pairs that I think are pretty great, but not as great as those two little whippersnappers on ice in Bryn Mawr (yeah, we've named them, not sharing though:) ).

These gorgeous (read: redonkulously expensive) shoes!

Bacon and Eggs!
Salt and Pepper Shakers (Bonus: Angel and Demon)!
Sonny and Cher!
The Sun and the Moon!

And of course...

 P and I :)


  1. Aaah! So excited for you - what an amazing feeling that must be! I just wanted to hug you when I read this - but that will have to wait until the next time I see you in person!!

    Congrats to you and P! Much love... =)

  2. happy for you and your fertile energy

  3. OMG! YAY!!!!!

    Love you and your little whippersnappers.

  4. We are so happy to hear this amazing news, Laura. Everything happens for a reason and your future is going to be full of rich and happy memories with your little ones. I can tell you from personal experience that it is an amazing journey. The best thing you can give a child is love, and it is clear that you already have plenty of that to go around.

    We love you so much and can't wait to see you and Phil again soon.
