Giving Thanks

November 25, 2006

A few days late, but I wanted to share why I’m so thankful this year. For those who have read this blog for a while, you probably know that my wife and I have been having difficulty with secondary infertility. Well, I have some very good news to report: my wife is pregnant! Without IVF! The team of infertility Dr’s gave her about a 15% chance of success per attempt with IVF as early as two month ago. Then, two days before we were to go in for the appt, my wife found out she was pregnant. This has been three years in the making. The last # of weeks have been tense, with multiple blood tests to make sure her levels were going up as expected. Then last Wednesday, we went in for an ultrasound and saw a very strong heartbeat well positioned. The Dr’s were ecstatic as were we. The chances of an issue at this point drop to ~5% We’re naturally elated. A lot to be thankful for this year. Next year, our family is going to be a bit larger 🙂
