I'm Back!!!!!

Well sort of as I am still in ATL waiting for my final flight to LAX.

 Belize was amazing and it was the perfect getaway. It was a mixture of just relaxing, meeting great people, seeing great sights and eating fabulous food. We were in San Ignacio (inland - jungle) for 4 nights and then on one of the islands for 2 nights. Amazing places, just perfect.

I got too see and play with a toucan (very cool) and yesterday snorkel with sharks and stingrays. That was a huge thing for me as I am/was terrified of stingrays.

The only down side apart from having to come home is that I woke up with a cold is morning so not feeling as great as I could be.

On an IFV note, I read the book "sweet grapes" about child free living and found it very therapeutic for me and it gave me a lot of answers that I was looking for, or at least ways to find those answers.

I see that this board has been a bit quiet over the last week and fx that we see good news coming. 

Multiple ectopics, 2 failed IVF's
IVF #1: Did not get to ET, embies all failed PGD (major chromosomal defects)
IVF #2: We have 2 chromosomally perfect embies as a result of PGD (Boy/Girl) 1 failed the thaw (Girl) Transferred 1, yet ended as a c/p
Thought it was the end of our TTC Journey 6/20/2012
SHOCK BFP 9/28/2012: IT'S A BOY! and everything is normal !!!!!!

Little A born 38w 2d on 05/23/13 and is a true miracle for this IF Vet!
