a belated christmas present

We started Clomid treatments again last October, and our first cycle failed. In November, I had a faint positive test but got my period two days later.

Our Story: Part I

Most people don't just jump from TTC to Surrogacy. We're no exception. Otter Pop (this is what my husband really wants to be called on here, and I'm not going to say no) and I did everything the "right" way. We met, fell in love, had a long engagement, and were married. We had epic [...]

I am 1 in 8

This week is national infertility awareness week.  I have read that 1 in 8 woman will suffer from infertility.  I am one.  5 years ago in the midst of fertility treatments, I never would have dreamed that I would be sitting here with four children.   I so desperately wanted just one. I have read several [...]
