9 months later…….I gave birth to the most beautiful baby boy ever. 7lbs 11 ozs of the brightest part of my life. Except my husband of course. How can I thank the fertility doctor and the OBGYN who helped us to conceive and deliver my perfect little boy. I look into his big blue eyes and can’t believe it, still to this day. He is now 2 years old and I think back as I am writing this article…it was worth every shot. I still miss my twins though. They were my babies. I hold the grief in my heart but I know that they are looking over their little brother everyday.
In the months I spent trying to conceive, I felt completely lost and powerless. Parts of my struggle were transparent, broadcast to the world or anyone who was paying attention.

I took deep breaths through internal ultrasounds and learned to count my follicles along with the nurses. I joked with the lab techs as I became accustomed to giving up my blood and my neat and simple life as I knew it. And those were the easy parts, the parts that weren’t a secret. It was the hidden parts of my life that were hell on earth.

Recent statistics showed about 30% of cycles led to live births. So it would be reasonable to expect success after three cycles. Older women generally needed more cycles than younger women.
