I'm loving Nacomleavmo , a lot. It's nice to know that someone is actually reading this.
So here's a brief synopsis of me....
I'm Linda. I've been married to Mr. for almost 5 years (eek!) Yes, we met online (aww) We have one son, Boo. He was born early at 31 weeks due to a rare condition called Vasa Previa . I am a 7th grade reading teacher who is working towards her master's in Reading. I am also a knitter and cook.
My mother took DES while pregnant with me. While we only tried 7 months to get pg with Boo, we've been trying to add to our family since winter '06.
We consulted with an RE in winter '07. After 4 failed clomid/IUI cycles and being diagnosed as "unexplained" we decided to participate in an egg cryopreservation trial. We barely made the cutoff for age, but decided to go for it and save our insurance in case it failed.
My eggs were retrieved for the trial and 6 were frozen (unfertilized) the day before I turned 36, the end of September. Two weeks later, we found out that our IF insurance would be cancelled by Mr.'s company November 1st. (yeah, good decision to wait and use insurance later huh?)
After several setbacks, the eggs were thawed in March. Three fertilized and all looked great when they were transfered. But alas, none implanted.
We are now trying to get the money together to do a fresh IVF cycle and trying it on our own.
So that's me in a nutshell....
