Baby's name: Wyatt
IF dx: High FSH, ws 24.9 May 2005, hasn't been tested since then. Dh also Dx with 0% morphology
IF treatments (you may include DE or not, depending on how you feel about telling) & clinics: We ttc for 2 years before proper dx. We did 6 rounds of Clomid naturaly cycles, 2 months femara natual cycles, 4 more of Clomid with IUI and then found another forum where I was told to get my FSH levels tested, finally demanded that RE to do so and he gave us 0% chance of conceiveing. We moved onto new RE and we did one round of IVF, failed in chemical pregnancy. Riley was conceived naturally one month after that failure.
Run like crazy from Dr. Olive, located in Madison WI
Adoption: Didn't get there but we did have the books and a agency picked out.
anything about life before baby, including furbabies, jobs, etc.: everything about life before baby was different, and having 2 kids definetly changes everything. But it is great.
what kept you going while ttc (such as a particular high fsh success story): Well a few things, kept telling myself that I wasn't put on this earth with the urge to be a mother as bad as I wanted it, if I wasn't meant to be one. Also my dh, our marriage was torn upside down and inside out and yet we were always there for each other.
ttc now or in the future? NO! NO! NO! I am done... 2 boys 14 months apart, and every ounce of me knows that if we got pg again it would be a boy! DH would love a little girl though.
woulda, coulda, shoulda -- ? Never gone on birth control at a young age for menstral problems and followed my gut on not wanting to deal with my first RE.
anything about life after baby (SAHM, WAHM, WOHM, etc.) I currently work full time 40 hours a week with every Friday off to spend with my boys. I love having both worlds and honestly don't know if I could be a SAHM, I would miss adults
Woohoo! -- your greatest treat now as a mom: The moments when they both play togetehr and you can just sit and watch. It is rewarding. Almost as rewarding as them giving you hugs and kisses and saying I luv you before bed time.
Best advice for new moms: Do the best you can, you child only knows if you love him/her or not.
a recent milestone for DS/DD: Becoming sassier.. Does that count?
