Most of this year has been consumed by our efforts to become parents, but in a good way this time. It's hard not to be continually preoccupied when you are spending boatloads of money on treatment and then feeling physically subpar every day once it works.
I am so thankful to be ending 2011 (very) pregnant, despite the physical discomforts. I know the arrival of our boys will bring challenges such as I can't even imagine at this point, and I can't wait!
I blogged this time last year about ten things I hoped would happen in 2011. Fortunately, five of the ten came to pass, and I am well on my way toward working on a couple of the remaining five. My marriage and other relationships are intact. As usual, I didn't see as much of my sister and nephew as I'd hoped, but at least I had a legitimate reason (my pregnancy) for traveling less this year. I am still employed (and well received at work), and am well on my way to becoming a mother!
Thank you so much to those of you who have stuck with me since this blog (like much of my life) has become devoted to pregnancy more than anything else! I wish good things for all of you in the upcoming year.
