Hello everyone, I'm Kerry and my husband, John and i were married in 2001.

We took 4 1/2 years to conceive our first son, Ross, and it was heartbreaking TTC over that long time. I had various tests done and they were normal. In 2005 i was put on Clomid and unknown to us i had undiagnosed endometriosis. I had an ovarian cyst on my right ovary which had grown to 15cm in length! I had an emergency laparotomy and the cyst was removed alongwith my right ovary and tube. I was found to have stage 4 endometriosis was lots of deposits all over my abdomen including my bladder and bowel.

We were given a less than 1% chance of conceiving naturally!

I was given 6 months of Zoladex injections after the op to put my body into a temporary menopause! This was to help remove some of the deposits and reduce a cyst i had on my remaining ovary. 3 months after i finished the treatment my periods returned and 3 months after that i discovered i was pregnant! John & I were delighted and after a healthy pregnancy Ross was born in November 2006.

I went into labour 4 days early on my sister's wedding day! I still managed to be her chief bridesmaid though and Ross was born in the early hours of the next day. When Ross was 9 months old i became pregnant again and Owen was born in May 2008

Congrats on your boys! I'm sure you've been told they're handsome several times, but just in case... Your boys are adorable!
