Hi everyone,

Just checking back in here with one last update. Jenna is 18 days old today and still doing great. We had our two-week pediatrician appointment last Friday, and she had gained 12 ounces since we left the hospital. She is already growing into a cute, chubby baby I stare at her constantly and sometimes just staring at her makes me cry.

Thanks to everyone here for all the support along the way. It was such a long journey to get here -- from starting trying in April 2008, trying naturally for a year and a half, failing IVF's in December 2009 and March 2010, miscarriage after IVF in October 2010, failing another IVF in June 2011, and failing our final FET in October 2011....then moving on to a donor, and finally succeeding with our 5th dIUI in March 2012. And now, finally, holding baby Jenna in my arms

Our struggle will always be with me (once an infertile, always one), but it's wonderful to finally close that chapter of our lives and move forward with our baby girl. I wish the same for all of you, and everyone else still working to get to this board.
