About Me: Female, 45, Chicago, IL, member since Dec 2009
We started trying to conceive in November 2008. Neither of us had any children of our own and so desperately wanted to be parents. We are so blessed in many ways and have so much love to share. We trusted in the Lord that he had a plan for us.
[More] Our Journey....
Dec 2009- 1st IUI- BFN
Jan 2010- 2nd IUI- canceled (sperm motility too low to proceed)
Took time off to decide what to do next....
July 2010- IVF #1- canceled due to poor response to meds, turned into an IUI, then canceled (sperm motility too low to proceed)
Took time off to wait for new insurance to kick in- January 2011
March 2011- IVF #2- canceled due to poor response to meds
July 2011- IVF #3- responded well to the meds. Egg retrieval was July 13 (my bday). We transferred 3 embryos on July 16th. On July 29th- we got our BFP! :) We are over the moon and praise God for his miracles. It's always God's timing, not ours! :)
March 31st- our miracle arrived! Drake Alan weighed in at 9lbs and 20 inches. What a sweet, beautiful boy we have! So blessed!
"Wow- what a year it's been! Who else is coming up on their litte one's one-year birthday? What are the plans? Drake turns 1 on Easter so I couldn't resist Peter Rabbit theme this year. Hope everyone is doing great!"
Hey there Jennifer!! How are ya? Thank you so much for the sweet note. Yes, it was a rough time a few weeks ago but things are looking up!!! We are so blessed that DH found another job and it is a much better fit. He is in the medical field so it wasn't to bad of a hunt. We did figure out the insurance portion which really had me stressed but it all worked out and we have coverage. Whewww!!! So now we are just waiting for our baby girl to arrive here safely. Paxton is very excited about becoming a big brother....I just hope it stays that way when she is actually here. How are you doing? How is Drake? Are you excited for the fall season coming up fast??!!!! I hate to see summer go but fall is so much fun!! Hope all is well. Hugs! Bri
Thank you so much for the note, Jennifer!! We are so excited to be having a baby girl. Can't believe I am already 1/2 way there!! I have been feeling pretty good lately (finally). It was a bit rough at the beginning but now being in the 2nd tri I am feeling much better. I have my 20wk scan today so we get to take another peek and see if baby girl is still a girl, and be sure all is growing well. How are you doing? How is Drake doing? I just LOVE the pics from his 1st Birthday....just sooooo adorable. He is looking like such a big boy. Don't they grow so fast....just a blink of an eye it seems. Hope all is well and look forward to chatting again soon!! xoxo
