New Year...New Adventures!

So the New Year is here and I am so excited!

Those that don't yet...hold onto your hats!....we are doing In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) in April! So 2010 is set to be a big year for us. With any luck this time next year, I will be in the final weeks of my pregnancy and ready to meet our baby(babies). The plan is that I will start stims (the medications used to produce multiple eggs) in late April. Probably around the 21st. I will have to go to Fort Bragg for about 2 weeks during the stim time so that they can monitor me and then when I am ready, do the egg retrieval (ER) and the embryo transfer(ET). We are hoping that we will get enough eggs that fertilize to do a multi-embryo transfer and some left for freezing for use in the future. Let's keep our fingers crossed!

BJ and I had a laid back NYE. We went to Meg and Marcos' (some new friends) home and had a great time playing Tripoly (very fun game if you have never played!) and watched the ball drop with Ryan Seacrist and Dick Clark. A fun night and we have plans to hang out again real soon...mmm, enchiladas!

Our Christmas was spent traveling to Pennsylvania and picking up our new-to-us car! (Thanks Mom and Dad V!) It was awesome to see our family and spend some quality time hanging out. BJ's cousin Lynn and her hubby Brett and new baby Logan came up from Maryland and we got to meet Logan for the first time. He is so stinkin' cute! Here are a few pictures from our visit...
