I figured it was about time I post my story here!

On January 14, 2008 after 6 rounds of IVF (3 fresh and 3 frozen) and 2 miscarriages, I gave birth to my beautiful baby boy Aidan.

It was a long haul and so draining both physically and emotionally and there were days during TTC'ing that I didn't think I would be able to continue but I dug deep and so glad that I did!

A little of my story...

In my early 20s I was diagnosed with endometriosis. It was Stage IV and I had 3 different surgeries over 5 years to "clean it out" but it always came back. I also had 2 complete blocked tubes so knew I had to go with IVF to get pregnant. That scared the crap out of me and I put having kids completely out of my mind. In fact I had myself convinvced that I didn't want kids at all. On my 35th birthday I had my mental wake up and knew it was then or never so I made an appointment with my RE and started IVF treatment. We were very aggressive and month after month I kept at it. 2 years later after 6 rounds and 2 miscarriages I was pregnant with my DS. At 38 weeks he was delivered via c-section - this was required because of his transverse lie and a fibroid that was blocking my cervix. My little man is now 11 weeks old and a complete joy.

For all of you TTCWMA, continue to be strong and I know that one day you too will have the children you all want and deserve so much. Some days will be hard, so hard you'll want to give up but know that the next day will be better and you'll be set to continue on. Good luck to all of you!

Here are a few pics of my Aidan.
