Cycle #1

Step one was complete. The donor was picked and the sperm was purchased. (Read about that wild process here). Who would have ever thought we’d be spending thousands of dollars on sperm! Up next: most of the testing shifted to Britt. #16 had to get her innards checked out to make sure the baby would […]

Thank You!

Just over two weeks ago, Britt and Nugget had a baby shower and Steph had a diaper party – though she popped by the baby shower to say her hellos, of course! We had to take a minute to say the biggest THANK YOU to everyone who was there and to those who couldn’t make […]

Donor Selection

Have you ever tried online dating? If you have, picking a donor is very similar. If we were to sum it up in one word, it would be SUPERFICIAL.

New Year’s Resolutions – or Not! – #16
