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.

I still am trying to get around to typing up my birth story, but I have been very sleep deprived and busy with visitors, etc, etc...SOON! I am looking forward to the reflection of the whole process. I think about it all the time. The miracle of birth is still so immensence that I still can't quite wrap my mind around what I have been through. Wow...motherhood is incredible!! In the mean time, here are some newer pictures of our little sweetie...
First Bath!! (At home)

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.
