One year ago today

One year ago today was our donor's egg retrieval.  In some ways, today is a more momentous day in the lives of our sons than the day they were born because it's the day they came into being.  Without June 8, 2011, their birthday of January 19, 2012 would never have happened.

So much has happened in my life over the past year, and yet in some ways, it seems like just the other day that MM and I were heading to St. Mungo's to do my final u/s and his "contribution" to our cycle.  Crazy.

Feeling very fortunate and blessed.


  1. Hi,

    My name is Knoll Maria and I am a graduate student at Bar-Ilan University Information Science Department in Israel. For my final project, I am examining anonymity and self-disclosure in infertility blogs. The target population of the study are women bloggers who were or are going through infertility treatments and also blog about their experience. I am kindly inviting you to participate in this research study by completing the attached survey.

    The following questionnaire will require approximately 5 minutes to complete. Your response is very important to me. Your informed consent to participate in this survey is assumed by completing the survey and by submitting it. Participation is strictly voluntary and you may refuse to participate at any time. A copy of the results will be sent to you, if you choose so.

    Thank you for taking the time to assist me in my educational endeavors. If you require additional information or have questions, please contact by email.

  2. I feel the same way about our egg retrieval, which I'll never forget was on Feb. 21st! (It helps that's my brother's birthday too :)

  3. Such an important day! It's amazing how much life can change within a year.

  4. Wow... amazing to think of where you were a year ago... you've inspired me to keep going with IVf to get there somehow :) xoxo
