Happy Conception Day!!!

Little did I know 2 years ago, today my adventure with triplets would begin. After 3 and a half years of trying to get pregnant on December 12, 2006 we had an IUI (intrauterine insemination -- is performed by threading a very thin flexible catheter through the cervix and injecting washed sperm directly into the uterus). Going into the procedure we had 3 follicles(eggs) and knew there was a 20% chance of conceiving, so we NEVER thought all 3 would take. We had high hopes that it would work and we would be preggers with one baby or twins. I never dreamed that all three would take and I would be preggers with triplets. I still remember the day we found out it was triplets.
Gary had to work so my Mom went to Dr appointment with me. As the nurse was examining me she said "congratulations here's your baby". At that moment I remember being sad because there was only one. BUT then the nurse moved over and said "Wait there are two more on this side". I couldn't believe my ears, I was so excited. The nurse looked worried until she could see the excitement in mine and my Mom's face. At that point I was blissfully unaware how scary a triplet pregnancy could be.
Today I will remember as one of the most important days of my life. The day the Lord blessed us with three beautiful babies.

Much Love,
