I'm OLD!

Yesterday I turned 30 years old! It's hard for me to believe that I'm that old.

I think I'm ok with it though. I'm almost exactly were I always pictured myself being at this age. I've been married for almost 10 years, and we've made a good life for ourselves and our kids. I always said I wanted four kids by the time I'm 30, and surprisingly enough that has worked out too. I'm so happy and so blessed, I have nothing to be sad about!

We did a little party over the weekend at my parent's house. I didn't feel very good as usual so I look super hot in all the pictures.....

A Little Peek......

I had an ultrasound this morning and we got to see our 2 little miracles!! It's always so exciting to get a peek and see what's going on in there and what is making me SO SICK!!!

We were so thrilled to see they are growing and developing right on the money. Below is baby B's heartbeat......

So here is the story on these little ones:

As soon as Daxton turned 1, I started to get that anxiety back, that baby making anxiety. I knew the time was coming when we were going to have to start going through the IVF process all over again and it's very stressful and very expensive. We Still had 10 frozen embryos leftover from Daxton's batch in AZ. In May, we made the long trip down and did a FET (frozen embryo transfer). They unthawed 5 embryos. One died and the other four were in poor quality but we went ahead with the transfer. Two weeks later we weren't really surprised when we got a NEGATIVE.

We then waited a couple of months and went back down in July for another FET. They unthawed the remaining five embryos and again one died. The embryos were a little better in quality then the ones in May, but still not great. Again, two weeks later we got a NEGATIVE.

At that point I started looking for a new doctor in Utah and with some help from a few friends I finally picked one in Provo. We started a low stimulation IVF cycle right away ( I tend to produce a lot of eggs). I did 10 days of injections and produced 14 eggs. From those, 10 turned into embryos and three days later I went in for the transfer. We had 1 A 8 celled, 1 B 8 celled, 1 B 10 celled, and the rest were all C embryos.

My doctor planned on just transferring the A 8 celled and B 8 celled but I talked him into putting in the B 10 celled as well. The other 7 embryos weren't worth freezing because they never made it to 8 cells.

Ten days after the transfer I was totally bummed because I was just sure that it hadn't worked AGAIN! I had ZERO symptoms!! Shane was starting to get mad at me for being so negative. So that night I took a pregnancy test to prove to him that I knew my body and I wasn't pregnant. I think as soon as a peed on it it said PREGNANT. I was completely shocked!

Two days later I went in for my blood work and when they called me with the results they said: "congratulations, you are pregnant and it's definitely multiples. Come in in a week so we can see if it is twins or triplets".
We were so excited and a little nervous. We were definitely hoping for twins, triplets is just scary!
When I went in for the ultrasound, my doctor started to look for the sacs and almost immediately said "There's 2!"

We were so relieved and so so excited!

Our little ones are due on their daddy's birthday 6.30.11!!

So last night I went with my mom and her friends, Carrie and Ellen, to the Lady Antebellum Concert. It was general admission, and since my mom is TOTALLY obsessed with them, we got there at 3:30 to wait in line and the concert didn't start until 7:30!

The good news is we did RUN in and get FRONT AND CENTER when the doors opened.

We were so close, we did actually touch Charles Kelly a few times!

Now I'm not a huge fan of theirs...not a country fan at all....but they really didn't seem country and they put on a pretty good show!

Happy Halloween!!

The past few months, Kennedi has been obsessed with cowgirl stuff, so of course she wanted to be a cowgirl for Halloween. I decided to go ahead and dress Dax up as cowboy to go along with her.....but he REFUSED to wear his cute little chaps, boots, or hat! He can be such a I decided to make him Chucky, it's fitting for him anyways, and all we had to do was MAKE him hold still while we sprayed his hair red.

As you can see......he was not thrilled about this whole Halloween thing!

Kennedi's favorite part about her costume was her big huge belt buckle that Grandpa Knudsen gave her.
