My precious miracles were born. Thank you to everyone on this board who gave me support- both medically and emotionally. I would not have these sweet babies if I had listened to my old clinic and had given up.

I had to post these again. My DH did a great job.

Your babies are so beautiful. Little miracles.

Would you mind sharing which clinic you used and/or you journey to get there?

me:43, DH 44
FSH 26
DS: born by c-sec Apr15'03, 9lbs5oz 41wks gest. (after 4 years of ttc, starting in 1998)
DD born by c-sec Oct 13 2007, 8lbs13oz 39wk gest. (after just under 3 years of ttc)
~~DS was conceived naturally the cycle following a cancelled DE IVF, using my good friend's eggs. She was on the verge of hyperstimming.
~~DD's nat conception I attribute to using OPKs like a crazy nut, eating grapefruit daily and using preseed. also 5 cycles of TCM ending 2 cycles before that lucky cycle.
