Hi! My name is Jessica. I joined JustMommies because my husband and I have just (and I mean like yesterday was day 1) started TTC. It took me a little while to decide I was ready. I love children. My husband is a cancer survivor - he has off therapy and in remission for almost 2 and a half years. We were told before he started treatment that there was a chance that his fertility would not return after treatment was over. He went to a fertility clinic and had 3 good specimen frozen. They told him to return 1 year after the completion of his therapy and they could begin to test for signs that his fertlity was going to return. It has been 2 and he has still not went to get tested. He says he doesn't want to find out that way. My husband will be a great father..He loves children and all of our friends children call him uncle...It will devastate us if we can't have any. We want to try the natural route before we do IVF. My hesitation is because I know there is such a great change that his fertility is gone because of the chemo I am scared of trying because I'm scared to find out if thats the case. IVF is pricey, we only have 3 specimen, and its never a sure shot..So I guess what I am asking, is does anyone have any advice for our situation? We are going to try for a couple of months and if nothing happens, then maybe go back to the clinic. I'm asking that all of you mommies to be and TTC mommies pray for us. God has answered a lot of prayers for the two of us this year, and I'm hoping he can give us one more.!!!!!

Hello & to JM! God can most certainly bless you & I'll say a prayer that He does. It's funny but I have just recently, after 4 years of TTC, decided to give it all to Him & quit seeking MA at least temporarily. You can read more on my blog, if you would like... Galatians 4:22-23. And there is a TTCMA board here that, should you proceed down the medical route, would be really helpful, I believe. GL!

BTW, I'm Amanda, wife to Mike & mom to Austin (13) & an angel. I'm also co-host of the Christian Parenting board & the Thyroid Disorders board. Feel free to visit me on either board! It's very nice to *meet* you!
