My husband and I have been married for 14 years and tried having a baby naturally for the first ten of them unsuccessfully.  After numerous tests, the doctors couldn't find any reason for this.  So we did IVF and had a beautiful baby boy.  At the six week post partum checkup my doctor wanted to talk to us about birth control and I just laughed.  And ten months later my daughter was born!  And 18 months later my second son was born! 


I just wanted to tell you going through this now that this board really helped, encouraged, and informed me and I thank you.  Please keep your heads up and your spirits high.  This is a draining process, physically, emotionally, and financially so I hope the end result is positive for each and every one of you.
