Graduation Day!

Monday's RE appointment was bittersweet.



Everything looks just right, two heartbeats and the little ones had grown like weeds.



But, it was also the last time I'll see Dr. Hope and his staff for a while. They deemed us ready to move on to an OB.



I'll be honest, I'm scared.



Over the last two years, they've become family.



As we got ready to leave, Nurse Peppy gave us a green bag. The same type of bag she gave me with my foll.is.tim pen and all the IVF paperwork in... Only this time, there was a little red box inside. When I pulled it out, and opened it up to find an ornament. It was "Thing 1" and "Thing 2" from Dr. Seuss! M. and I laughed because just the day before he had started to refer to them as "Thing 1" and "2"...LOL.



Here's a peek at 8 weeks, 3 days...

  8. Woot!

    Transitioning from an RE to an OB/GYn is tough. Because you go from being a big fish in a little pond, to a little d
    fish in a big pond. I definitely missed my RE.

  10. Yay! I'm SOOO so excited for you! It's sort of a selfishly excited because I'm glad to have you has a twin pregnancy buddy!

    I was scared to leave my RE too, and still am a little. I feel like I really went though a lot with my small center. But I'm very grateful to finally be able to move on.

  12. The ornament is so sweet!

    I was really scared to leave the RE too, even though we hadn't been with them for long they understood what we'd been through and were so understanding and respectful of our fears. It was honestly the best experience I've ever had with any doctor or doctor's office as a whole.

  13. What a sweet gift though.

    I think they will always be "family" to you, but you have graduated and it is time to make a new family. Hell, I give my OB a Christmas card every year because of how close I got with her during my pregnancy. Good luck!
