My History

  • We started trying to conceive when I was 33 years old, after spending a few years making sure that we were financially and professionally ready to start a family. My mother gave birth to all three of her children in her 30s, and I had no inkling that infertility lay ahead of me. Four years later, after 4 IUIs, 3 IVFs and 1 FET, we finally got pregnant and stayed pregnant. We lost one twin at 11 weeks, but our remaining baby was born healthy and strong. He is the light of my life and I am forever grateful for him.
