Miracles do happen. 3 rounds of IVF and on the verge of giving up. Took a month and half off to find our center. Doc calls and says we can’t start the 4th round bc we are pregnant! Crazy journey.

Busy season was rough, things are looking better now as things return to normal. Still working crazy hours if you count the daycare duties on top of utilization targets.
