a tale of an infertile with a useless pair of ovaries, but Follistim worked and now we have Twins

Our Mommy went back to work and that sucks! We are mad and we don't like it!
So September has started and with that it means, Mommy is back to work. I did not go easily, I went kicking and screaming. Then Irene came and though I didn't have power for days, I enjoyed having a few more days with the girls- power or no power. Isn't it pathetic, I enjoyed a hurricane cause I got to be with my kids? Sad. Now I am eyeing the tropics, just kidding...kinda. No really we were lucky in that we had minimal damage and we are all safe. It was a pain to not have power for over 4 days with 2 kids, but a generator is nice thing to have. Our area still has alot of damage.
A friend coined the term "Sad Sundays", you know the afternoon on Sundays when you realize that Monday is right around the corner and you get all glassy eyed. That's how I feel about September...and every Sunday of course but only during the school year.
Here's some of the girls 2 year portraits:
My precious Kristin
My loving Lara
In other news, last month BFN, but I do believe I Oed on my own. I had my second 28 day cycle but with some major monitor mix up we missed prime time per se.
However, I am currently 1dpo. And I managed to get in some good BD in. So now we wait. Just hoping for whatever God has in store for us. Starting to accept that our family is probably complete. Which that's ok. But #3 would be awesome too! Time will tell!
I am 35 years old. I am married to the most wonderful man in the world, Bobby. We have been married for 6 years and tried to conceive for 20 months (18 cycles). We are smitten with our 2 beautiful girls!
