Anything about life before baby, including furbabies, jobs, etc.: One DS born August 2004 after a year of trying
what kept you going while ttc (such as a particular high fsh success story): Stubborn nature, unwilling to give up; good insurance
ttc now or in the future?: Success is a statistical improbability, we have two... lightning probably won't strike three times
woulda, coulda, shoulda -- ?: Not wasted so much time being angry, sad and jealous
anything about life after baby (SAHM, WAHM, WOHM, etc.) Working full time and very happy to do so
Woohoo! -- your greatest treat now as a mom: Not sure if I understand the question, but when I think of treats, I think of margaritas!
