After their devastating loss, Nancy says they decided to do the artificial insemination themselves the second time around. "So the second pregnancy I'm like, 'Why are we driving three and a half hours when we can just do it at home?'" Nancy says.
Thomas and Nancy say the procedure is very delicate, and after one failed pregnancy, the stakes were high. "I was shaking," Nancy says. "It wasn't as thrilling as it should have been."
Their determination paid off. In October 2007, Thomas became pregnant for the second time.
