My husband, David, and I had been trying to have a baby since November of 2007. After 'letting things happen', we got the amazing news that we were pregnant in June of 2008. Sadly, that pregnancy ended at 9 weeks with a natural miscarriage. After two more chemical pregnancies, we turned to fertility treatments in 2009. That decision was a disaster, with lousy medical care and poor monitoring. In December of 2009, we made the huge decision to move onto IVF. Things fell into place like magic and we began treatment on January 15, 2010. After a blighted ovum in March, we did a successful FET in June, only to endure another blighted ovum in July. We kept up and underwent another IVF in September/October of 2010 with the arrival of our son, Brogan in July of 2011! After our lovely success (finally) we decided to undertake yet another IVF treatment and hope for a sibling for our little red headed boy. Well... so far it's worked. Our story continues below!

To celebrate I tested again! HaHa!  The test line showed up as fast as the control line, and while it's not AS dark as the control, it's obviously darker than yesterday's.  I wasn't anxious about testing and was confident that the results would be good.  It feels GREAT to feel some real solid hope!

I'm not sleeping... my back is aching and so do my boobs at night.  It actually wakes me up, and I turn and turn and turn.  My mind is also excited and happy and so I lay in bed, alone and awake, and think.  I'll bet I've had ten hours sleep in the last two days.  I'm going to bed early tonight!
