On the contrary to popular belief, for us it took three years and two fresh IVF-ICSI cycles to create our little miracle who was born on August 13, 2010.

Thanks everyone for your comments yesterday. I wrote the previous post because the news at the baby shower rocked me to my infertile core. The experience brought back all the horrid feelings of when I had to be around others who were pregnant when we were struggling after a failed IVF. I just hated to be the catalist of the akwardness and somehow that made me take on some of her pain. I guess old habbits (and mind sets) die hard!! I know there was no way for me to know and my other friends have all said they are SO sorry for not giving me the heads up. It's just a heart breaking senario that I've read about but to be there and be the one who brought it up was a doozy! Thanks again for all your loving and supportive comments. I love this community!!

Visit RE: After hydrosonogram, HSG, BW & multiple SA we are diagnosed severe MFI. DH had Varicocelectomy and it turned out to be unsuccessful in raising counts, motility or morphology. All three remained very low and abonormal. IVF-ICSI our only option.
Started TTC - month after month BFNs. Very regular periods so we begin to wonder what's up.
