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.

Morgan is starting to talk....well, sort of she says, "mom-mom-mom-mom-mom"...and she got her first tooth on April 20th. She weighs 18 lbs and is 27.5" long. She loves bananas and sweet potatoes and is just the happiest baby! She started really crawling on the 21st of April and now she's moving everywhere super fast! We think she'll be walking in no time....I started walking at 9 months so maybe she's taking after her mama. We'll see! Every day is more joyful than the next. She's just breezing through her milestones and we are the happiest parents around!!

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.
