I wanted to post a message about my journey with IVF. I am 39 and went thru just shy of 2 years of struggeling with infertilty...we tried 4 IUI's , different drugs varieties and what seemed like endless pricks giving blood.

Thank you for sharing that - you're right, my obsession has become trying to find someone in a similar situation as me who had success.

I also think that if this doesn't work it will be a very sad day for us, but I do believe that if you persevere, eventually we will have our baby and that's more important than the money or buying a new house. This is one life goal I don't want to postpone any more!

How is it having twins? I've been called crazy by all my friends who know that I want to have twins because I think financially and emotionally, this might
