Our journey through infertility, failed adoptions and now parenthood through the miracle of embryo adoption/donation.

Sunday, March 21, 2010

Welcome, welcome, welcome!

Today starts March's ICLW. What is ICLW, you ask? There is a little green button to the left that you can click on and it will tell you all about it! For those that are visiting from ICLW, welcome to my little corner of the world. A place that is all about me, just as it should be! ;-)

For those that don't know me let me tell you a little about myself. I am 32 and I have been married to my hubby 11 years. They have been great years except for a little thing called infertility. We found out that we would have trouble conceiving about 9 months into marriage. Being young and naive we really thought that this was a minor setback. Boy were we wrong!!! Ten years, 2 failed adoption and four failed IUIs later we realize just how difficult this would all be.

Thankfully we are starting a new chapter in our lives. I am currently 17 weeks pregnant with our first child. This miracle is brought to you by the gift of embryo donation. We are ever so grateful to an anonymous couple out there that allowed us to adopt their embryos. Without them we may never have had this opportunity to be parents.

That about sums it all up. Right now we are waiting to find out the gender and to start shopping!!! I find out a week from Thursday. You should follow me so that you can read that announcement!!! ;-)

Thank you all for stopping in and I hope to "meet" a lot of new people this week! Happy ICLW!

  6. I would love to hear more about your embryo adoption and how you picked an agency! I've been researching embryo adoption as an alternative to doing another IVF cycle but our decision hasn't been made yet.


  7. Congratulations! My first ICLW, so I'll certainly follow you now to hear about your next scan - and because I loved your post about the differences between the scrawny and chubby pregnant women. :-)

  8. Popping in from the ICLW to wish you Congratulations on your pregnancy & now following along.
