We feel very blessed to have conceived a beautiful baby boy on Dec. 14, 2000. I never had any issues with getting pregnant before, I have 3 children by a previous marriage. But,I remarried , we wanted to have a baby, we had tried awhile and then I got pregant on my own but we miscarried at 4months, it was horrifying & very sad. We then talked with a doctor at Shady Grove and he suggested IUI first, that failed. With us being 40, he said lets go IVF now. We started treatment, wasn't easy for me, I hate needles and blood taken. But, we endured it and with the first attempt of IVF, we got pregant. It was a blessing! The process is very trying and very emotional. But, so worth it! When I look at him, he is our little miracle from above and we thank God for Shady Grove for there assistance in our little miracle.
