Every once in a while I check on here to see if anybody typed anything. Nice to see someone posting in here! Everyone suddenly just stopped posting. I guess everybody has been so busy! I know I have.

Yes, it's far easier to get busy and your focus certainly does shift when you are not stuck in endless cycles of two week waits.

I wanted to share that we have adopted a little boy. He turned 6 weeks old yesterday and he is quite simply, the love of our lives! The furries don't mind him and we adore him.

Valerie, Elizabeth is so cute! Her birthday is just a few days after mine - Saggitarians rock!

I hope the others check in some time too.

CONGRATS!! I am so happy to hear you adopted. That is so wonderful. :happyforyou: It is so great hearing from you.

Thank you. I cannot believe she will be 1 years old very soon!

I hope the rest of the group checks in too!

Oh my goodness Toni, that is so very exciting. I'm so happy for you. Congratulating on your baby boy.

Val, congratulations to you as well! Time just flies huh?

So how is motherhood treating you guys?

I've checked in here every now and again and didn't see any activity. I'm glad to hear from you both.

Afm, ridiculously busy. We had a baby girl in May. Brooke is now 7 months old and Brody is 23 months old. So I never stop. Its great. They are my little loves. They're such wonderful children.

OH MY GOODNESS!!! I just came on this sight for he first time in probably a year, and something told me to check on this thread to see when the last time anyone posted was. When I saw this near the top of the list and that Danielle had posted this month, I was so excited! Then seeing some of our original crew.....I'm tearing up!!

Toni - SO SO SO HAPPY FOR YOU!! How wonderful to have adopted a little boy! I'm sure life is just wonderful!!

Danielle - Very busy, I'm sure! Sounds like such a great little family!

Valerie - You were due about a month before me, I think. Your little girl is adorable!

My little boy (Jax) turned one on Jan 6th. I can't believe how quickly that year went! I actually came to this site tonight because we're hoping to try for another little one soon. We had originally said Jax would be our only one after all we went through to get him, but lately I've been feeling like he needs a sibling. Plus, I had a relatively easy pregnancy and he has been a pretty easy baby, so I've been feeling like, "Oh I could totally do that again!" We'll see though. We said we'll do a few months of trying on our own and then right to one round of IVF. If that doesn't do it, then it just wasn't meant to be. I can't go through all of the heartache and loss I did last time, and I knew I was just meant to be a mom, so I'm happy with that.

I hope others happen to check in soon. It would be so great to hear from more of our original group!

I obviously haven't checked this thread in so long! I checked every now and then for a while but not in months now!
Congratulations on the baby boy Toni! I've long wondered how you are!
And congratulations on a baby girl Danielle!
The triplets are almost 15 months now. They are busy and amazing little people. Some days I'm not sure how we survive. Other days I feel as if this life was meant for me! I've kept up with Amanda and Katie on FB- I'll ask them to check in too!

Hi everyone! Such wonderful news. I am so glad to hear that everyone is doing so well. Valerie - love the pic of you and your sweet little girl. Toni - I'm thrilled that you adopted a little boy. I think you should write a book on your journey and the true labor of love it took to bring him into your family. Danielle - you have your hands full now! So happy to hear about you adding a beautiful little girl to your brood. And ChristineHow - you have a 1-year-old now? Time flies. Congrats! Our sweet little Lincoln is babbling up a storm. He says please and thank you (which daycare taught him - not me!), and he loves cars, trains, and especially yogurt. He would eat yogurt all day if we'd let him (and frequently tries to help himself to what's in the fridge). I'm so glad Rachel told us there were new posts. I connect with Rachel, Christine (cbusch), Jaime, and Katie on Facebook. Please message me if you want me to friend you. I love seeing the pics of their beautiful babies.

Wow, congrats Toni on your sweet little man and Danielle on your little girl!! Kelley I can't believe you triplets are 15 months already! Omg. I also can't imagine how busy you must be chasing all 3 of them around. :) Christine I totally get the desire to have another – I kindof thought we would be okay with just Otto until he hit 12 months and I got MAJOR baby fever.

Since then we've done 2 FET's but both ended in early miscarriages. We lost a lot of embryos in the thawing process so we're down to 1. Both DH and I aren't sure we're ready to try FET again because all the hormones are really hard on my body and our relationship. We're actually considering finding a local fresh sperm donor for AI at home to try more "naturally" or at least casually while we wait. Hopefully we can find an arrangement that works!

AHHHH! I cannot believe it! I have not heard from you all in sooooo long! I am so happy you are all doing okay. It is awesome to hear some of you are thinking about trying for baby #2 and one of you are already at baby #3! Just WOW! I would love to connect with you all on Facebook. It would be great if this group had a private Facebook group, unless you all already created one. I am so happy you all checked in here even if it was a year later... :rofl: hahaha! I know we are ALL very busy because we all have our hands full :D I am just so excited to hear from you guys!!

Below is a picture of Elizabeth at 11 months and 12 months old. I took both photos. I wanted to learn a little about photography ever since I had Elizabeth. I wanted to capture as many special moments as I could. I love my baby girl so much. She walked early too. She took her first steps at 9 months old! What about your little ones? Tell me about them :)

Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is a fertility treatment that involves placing sperm inside a woman’s uterus to facilitate fertilization. The goal of IUI is to increase the number of sperm that reach the fallopian tubes and subsequently increase the chance of fertilization.IUI provides the sperm a run but sperm has to reach itself on its own. We offer best IUI treatment in Hyderabad.
