My husband and I started trying to conceive in October of 2007. We figured it'd be easy since he already has three daughters who were conceived within a month of trying.
Three IVFs: (1 missed miscarriage at 8 weeks, 1 ectopic pregnancy miscarried at 5 weeks, 1 spontaneous pregnancy that ended in a missed miscarriage at 5 weeks); and 1 FET (a missed miscarriage at 9 weeks.)
Which equals: lots of drugs injected, lots of money spent, lots of weight gained. But no live babies. Infertility sucks. RPL sucks ass.
So we moved on to using donor eggs, and achieved a healthy, genetically normal pregnancy our first try. After all the drama of the last few years, my pregnancy was essentially uneventful.
Henry was born on September 18, 2010 and he is, without a doubt, the best thing that ever happened to me. This blog is in the process of becoming less of an ongoing infertility journal and more of a mommy/radical homemaker/writer blog. Can't wait to see what's next for us.
