My history for the newbies:

April 2004 went off bcp, ttc forever it seemed, saw obgyn, finally got Clomid in July 2005
August 2005, got bfp--m/c at 14 weeks in October 2005
Back on Clomid right away
BFP January 26, 2006--delivered term baby Nolan Oct 2006!!!
April 2007-stopped EBF to start Clomid, it didn't work
February 2009-moved to another city 9 hours away with my little family to do my first IVF cycle for unexplained infertility, I was a poor responder and they converted to me to IUI and hoped for the best. BFN $12K gone and a bfn
2nd IVF more aggressive booked for June 2009
March 2009-I have a very vivid dream that I'm holding three newborns and saying "what on earth do I do with three baby boys?"
April 21, 2009--get an out of the blue phone call from FIL saying he works with a guy whose newborn prem grandsons need to be adopted-we move to a city 5 hours away with our little family, and spend a month in NICU with the twins.
June 2009-we refuse IVF
January 14, 2010--I get a phone call asking if bio sib to twins can come "visit" for a few weeks, she never left, and now we've adopted three.
Spring 2010-do we go on bcp, vas, tubal??? What's the point? If $12K can't get me pg, nothing will. Aug 2010-dh and I get remarried on our 7th anniversary in the Catholic church, and go on a childless honeymoon in Nov 2010 for one week.

We're talking five under five. I got my honeymoon bfp last night. I'm dead serious-crazy hey?
HCG tomorrow, tubal with my c/s

Lucky mother to five!

Congrat's!!!! I am so excited for you. Yes that is a lot of very young children but completely fun!! I have 4 under the age of 6 and my friend has 4 under the age of 3 (her oldest is almost 3, her little girl is 15 months and she just had twins). Some days it gets crazy but there is so much love that it makes it so worth it.

I really enjoy working from home with the kids, we don't have family close by, but we can get them here if we had to. My biggest fear is that I can't take five uptown by myself, the two bigs are good, but the twins just started walking, but it should be better by August.
Thank you!

Lucky mother to five!

OH MY goodndess! Congratulations!

Thank you to the wonderful ladies who mad the blinkies!

"The Lord compensates the faithful for every loss. That which is taken away from those who love the Lord will be added unto them in His own way. While it may not come at the time we desire, the faithful will know that every tear today will eventually be returned a hundredfold with tears of rejoicing and gratitude..... These experiences, while often difficult to bear at the time, are percisely the kinds of experiences that stretch our understanding, build our character and increase our compassion for others."
