Hi there, I'm not sure if anyone here remembers me but I had done IVF and was part of the May-July IVF board. It was our second attempt at IVF and were blessed with being pregnant with twin boys. I ended up delivering them early, on Jan.13 at 33 weeks. I kept meaning to post but things were a bit busy as they were in the hospital for a while. But we are home now. Marcus was born at 10:23 p.m. on Jan 13 and Caleb was born at 10:26 p.m. on Jan. 13. Marcus was 4lbs and Caleb was 4lbs 8oz. Both boys are doing well know and they are in the 7lb range.

I wanted to post about the birth and hope it's okay because it was a long journey and finally after the second attempt with IVF it worked. I found this board and the IVF board very supportive and I want to say to everyone here that I wish the best for all you ladies. This is a great board and I'm so lucky to have been told about it last year when I signed up.

Anyways, hope its ok that I posted about the birth of our twins. Thanks for reading
