It was two years ago when we arrived to Dr. Robin's office carrying so many emotions with us. We were nervous, scared, excited...you get the idea. It was Transfer Day...the day that our embryos would be transferred into Amy's uterus. There were two Grade A embryos that would be part of this amazing marvel of reproductive medicine. Our first Transfer Day was postponed due to Amy's eggsceptional egg making abilities which caused her to hyper-stimulate and it was decided that it would be in the best interest of her and the embryos if we postponed. So the day arrived, August 30th, 2007. We arrived early so Amy could get her massage & accupuncture, both of which were going to give us the best chance at a successful pregnancy. We will both remember this day forever. We sat in the dimly lit room with soft music playing as Amy's bladder attempted to fill up. A full bladder is a must prior to transfer so there we sat thinking, wondering, praying. And then the moment came...Dr. Robin entered the room followed by the embryologist with the two embryos. We got to see a picture of the two embryos (see below) and then it was time to transfer. Dr. Robin allowed us to record the entire event so we watched as our little babies entered their mommy for the first time. Tears filled our eyes as the emotions were too much to contain any longer. After Amy relaxed with our babies inside, it was time to head home for 24 hours of bedrest. What a day it was and what a blessing we received from Dr. Robin and everyone at the New Hope Center. 2 years later, I sit here looking at our Blessing. He is now 15 1/2 months old and is simply amazing. He is my everything. I love everything about him...his curly blonde hair, his big blue eyes, his tiny little nose and of course his smile...his skinny arms and legs, his tiny little butt, his big belly after he eats a good meal and that sweet little voice...I love how he calls me Mama, even though i am Daddy, I love how he looks at me. I could go on and on because I love everything about him. He melts my heart...a heart that at one time hurt so badly because i never thought i would know this love. Now i am the luckiest man in the world to have such a wonderful family filled with so much love. And to think that 2 years ago, these were our first pictures of what would come to be our Peyton.
And the moment that the embryos entered Amy's uterus.
God is Great!
