    Hi all,
    After four and a half years of battling infertility, one miscarriage, lots of tears and heartache, we finally were blessed with a BFP in January. We were on our very last cycle of letrozole with timed intercourse before having to move on to IUI. Some very anxious and nail biting weeks followed our good news. When you've tried for so long and have already experienced loss, you can't help but think of all of the worst case scenarios.

    Today, I'm ten and a half weeks along and starting to feel more peaceful about the pregnancy as the start of the second trimester quickly approaches. We have an adopted son, four years old, who had been asking almost daily for two years for a sibling. We're waiting until the second trimester to fill him in, just in case. This will be the first biological child for both of us.

    I'm excited to speak with you all. Only someone who has been through this journey can truly appreciate the anxiety that comes with your wish finally coming true.

    Best of luck to you. The 2WW can be torture. I was very happy not to have to move on to IUI or IVF. My husband would have done it, but he felt conflicted and didn't want to do anything that wasn't "natural." I tried explaining that medicating myself in order to ovulate isn't natural either. Fortunately, our BFP came at the last moment.
