  1. Okay, that’s one hell of a list. It takes me back a little. We had fertility issues also, though we had to do IVF. 7 cycles. 5 ectopic pregnancies. It sucked. But it actually was all worth it. 3 kids now (5 year old and 19 month old twins.) I don’t know if that helps or hurts. I’m sorry if it hurts. Loved your latest post, by the way. We’re still trying to find the spark. Infertility puts everything through the fucking wringer. Best of luck to you.

  2. Ugh! I am soooo sorry for what you have been through!! There are no words. I am sooooo happy you have GWW now! Motherhood is really the most amazing gift ever.

  3. Oh my, that must be terrible. Congrats on your son though!
