What if's that we are crazy enough to laugh about...

I was told (while I was in the Army) that after the boys were born, I had a really good chance of having a second set of twins...

So last night, Todd and I were talking about what we want for our family *with special consideration to God's plan* and what we decided is this. We will talk to my doctors, my endocrinologist and see if he thinks my body could produce a healthy baby. If it can we will go looking for an OB that will induce me at 38 weeks (we would only do this if the baby will be healthy coming that early). I have very good reasons for refusing to go past 38 weeks. When I find this doctor, I will talk to them about vitamens and folic acid, which can't be taken with my synthroid because it would be cancelled out by the vitamen. Then I will present this doctor with my list of questions and if (and only if) I'm satisfied after all of that, we will start trying in January February and March (stop in April). I want a baby for Christmas...my first choice is a November baby but I'll take anything healthy. If pregnancy is not a choice, we'll look into what our insurance pays for surrogates...if anything. It's a very expensive procedure (egg harvesting, fertilizing eggs with DH sperm and planting in surrogate mommy plus the expense of adopting the baby after birth from SM...I think I have the procedure right and if I don't, someone should break it down better for me). If that doesn't work we'll be happy with the children we have. During this process, we will continue on the adoption process. If we have a child placed in our family before we get pregnant, we won't have the child removed. and this is where the twins explanation from above fits in...what if we then get pregnant with twins. Five babies! LOL!!

My prayers are with you as you go forward with your new plan. Five! My goodness! Sounds like full and happy home!

I hope everything works out great for you!! I'm sure it will. 5 babies would be a lot, but you would totally be able to handle it.

I am sure it will work it - you have lots of time. Sorry about your dad. It sounds like you are keeping busy and making the best of things.
