A Moment Like This

Last night I pulled out some of my favorite Bo Bunny papers and using a PageMaps sketch I put together this layout about the day of our IVF embryo transfer.

It's not a flattering photo of me at all LOL but it's the only one we have from that special day. This was taken while I was lying there on the procedure table. The photo that I'm holding there was given to us by the embryologist and it's of our two best embryos... one of those little guys/girls is the one that stuck!!!

I like how that big butterfly turned out! All I did was take a naked chipboard butterfly, ink it up with Broken China distress ink, and cover it with Glitz Mermaid Stickles!

I also accented the alphas in the title with Black Diamond Stickles for some extra sparkle. It's difficult to see that in this photo, though.

It's hard to believe that in a few weeks I will have already gotten through the first trimester! So far I have been very lucky in regards to symptoms and it hasn't been too bad at all. I am just super tired all the time. I hope it's true that the fatigue will subside during the second trimester :)
