It's really funny but I had to get this off my chest so I figured I would do it my journal. As many of you know we used donor eggs to finally get our beautiful boys. When we were deciding to do this, I know for me, I spent many hours thinking about whether or not I would tell my family and friends. Well after talking to the therapist we decided it was best to have the truth out there to avoid any problems later.
So I made a conscious decision to tell everyone. I worried over nothing I thought after everyone responded so well. Most family members told us who cares where they come from? Great, I thought my worries were over.
What is funny now is that since the boys have been born, I am repeatedly told that Michael looks like my husband and Alex looks like me. Really? I mean really, did anyone pay attention when I was explaining the whole donor egg process? My dh said I need to let it go and to just say thank you. I understand that but it still bugs me a little. I think I am more upset over the fact that I dreaded telling everyone, worrying about what everyone would think and the fact that they don't seem to remember annoys me more.
Well here we are four months later and I am told at least once a week wow Alex looks so much like you. lol I have to laugh because now I do what my husband said to do, "Thank you."
