This blog was started in 2008 when we did IVF for the first time to build our family after 5 1/2 years of infertility. We now have 8 and 2 year old boys (thanks to modern medicine) and we are enjoying our blessed life as parents ♥ In the summer of 2016 we took another huge step and moved across the country from Oklahoma to New York! This blog is about life and everything in between

The First of Many

Those of us trying to have a baby know firsthand that the simple act of "relaxing" or "not thinking about it" will NOT solve any medical mysteries, make sperm better, or make ovaries do their job correctly. And when we finally get the word from our doctor that yes, you have a true medical problem, we begin the process of accepting our fate, and moving on to the next possible option for adding to our family. This is where Nick and I are. After a 5+ year journey of TTC, we have finally found our answers and are accepting the fact that In Vitro Fertilization is our only remaining option for a natural child. Our official "start" date is September 20, 2008, but I am already taking medications to prepare the doctor to have complete (medical) control of my reproductive system. We know this will be one of the most taxing things we have ever done as a couple, and we hope that our attempt is successful. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers, and check back often for new posts and updates along the way!!
