I know I have been MIA for quite a while but I just wanted to update everyone and thank everyone on here for all of their support over these past few years!


Our baby girl (Abigail Grace) was born on March 24, 2010 via c-section.  My OB and I decided c-section was our best bet b/cI was diagnosed with a suspected case of vasa previa the first trimester and we didn't want to take any chances. 


Sure enough, when they delivered Abigail I did have vasa previa and she lost a little blood and was lightly anemic but otherwise a healthy 8 lb 3 oz baby!  After everything we had been through to conceive (1 failed IUI and 1 failed IVF cycle) and the vasa previa we truly feel like Abigail is our miracle and we are blessed :) 


I also want to say to everyone to never give up hope that you will become a mother one way or another- IUI, IVF, DE's or adoption... just have faith that your dream will come true.  


Our little girl just turned 2 months old and although life has changed drastically for us, we could not be happier!

What a beautiful little miracle you have there! I'm fairly new to this board and your story is inspiring. Thanks so much for sharing and enjoy every minute with your little one - they grow way to quickly! Before you know it she will be throwing two year old tantrums for no reason at all - and you will still think she is a little miracle. I think that IF gives us even more love for our children - no matter what my little miracle man does, I still just love him more than I ever thought possible.

Melinda, it's nice to see an update from you. I'm glad your dr. took the extra precaution of a scheduled c-section to ensure that little Abigail arrived healthy! Congratulations!
