    My name is Jill my husband is Carlos we are 30 years old married for 5 years. Our daughter Zoey is 10 months and it took us 4 years to get pregnant with her. I did 5 IUI's had 1 m/c and 1 ectopic getting ready for IVF and found out I was pregnant with my miracle. I work full time and do accounting for my mom's company. Since Zoey has been born I picked up bow making as my hobby it's fun to have bows that match her outfits. I love love love being Zoey's mommy. She just started walking 2 weeks ago and it's so funny watching this little short thing wobbling around.

    My name is Robyne. My DH is Craig. We have been married for 7 years (together 14). I have PCOS and it took us a few years to get pg. (Metformin did the trick). Our first pg ended at 12 weeks with a mc. A few months later we got pg with Kyra. She is now 3 1/2 years old. Erin will be ONE on Nov. 4th. She is not walking yet - but cruising alot. We also have a 5 year old dog (mixed breed) named Cody.
    I work full-time and am an Assistant Director of Recreation for a small town.

    Good idea, Jill.

    I am Erin, dh is Brian - we have been married almost 5 years. We tried for several years to have a baby. After several IUI's and two IVF's, one ectopic - we got pregnant with our son, Kai .

    My husband and I are both Realtors. This allows us a lot of time to spend with the baby. And almost too much time together (if you know what I mean - hee hee)

    Kai is crawling around and trying desperately to talk with us. He will be ONE on 11/8.

    Ok, who is next?

    Should we attach pics?

    Hello. My name is Danielle but most call me Dee and I'm going to be 35 next month. My husband is James but everyone calls him Jamie and he is 39. My dd Melanie turned 1 on 10/4 and my first daughter (cat) Tabitha is 15 years old. I have been married for 4 and together for 6 1/2 years. Although never tested I believe and have a lot of the signs for PCOS but due to insurance it was less expensive to just try some drugs first. Started trying at 33 and lucked out and got pregnant after 3 rounds of clomid. Will be starting again in January.

    I am an administrative assistant/billing coordinator for a hospital EAP program and almost full time. Four 9 hour days and off on Friday's with my little pumpkin.

    As for pics I have issues trying to resize pictures and they are always too large. I will try when we go for her 1 year pictures which I still haven't gotten yet.

    Hi,
    I'm Dawn and I'm 35, DH is Piotr (he's Polish) and is 45.
    We TTC for almost 4y, included 9 months of clomid and 5 iui's - then we got very lucky with our first IVF that resulted in Jacob, born 12-24-05.
    We've been married 5 years, together 8.
    DH has a son from his first marriage, M who is 16
    I work part-time (21hrs) as a clinical specialist for a company that manufactures diagnostic medical equipment.
    We're also gearing up for our 1st FET - scheduled for mid-December!!
    We have a mini-lop rabbit named Cooper who is 2 (great IF therapy for me during a rough time )

    Jacob is the love of our lives, he's generally happy 24/7 and a joy every minute, he's crawling like mad, pulling up on things and finally cutting his two bottom teeth - they should be in any day now !!

    My name is Veronica and DH is Ron.

    Although we had a rocky start, we have been pretty lucky in the fertility department. We were ttc for 2 years. After the 1st year I went through the whole battery of tests and PCOS was to blame. The RE at the time was rude and cold and basically shued me out of the office saying I won't treat you until you loose weight. Yes I am a bit overweight but not terribly so and not be denied motherhood. He wouldn't even give me any meds to treat the pcos. I was stunned and numb for about 8 months.

    At the time I was a teacher in a lower income district where these moms would pop babies out left and right. That was tough.

    In Jan 05 I got enough courage to find a new RE to seek treatment. The RE said she would gladly start treating me. She put me on metformin and I would start a round of Clomid/IUI after my period. My period was just not coming and I was getting annoyed because I wanted to start the process. I felt so sick but blamed it on the Metformin. Much to my surprise I was pregnant. I guess I just needed that little boost.

    Brian was born last October and is now 1. I am currently a stay at home mom which I love. Not sure how long it is going to last though because it is a financial drain.

    We moved from NJ to VA in January. I started Metformin again in Feb and would start ttc at the 6 month mark in April. I didn't know how long it would take to concieve this time and DH does not have fertility insurance like mine when I was a teacher. So much to our suprise we were pregnant in April. We are having a girl due in December.

    They will be very close in age my life will be hectic but I am sure rewarding.

    Hi everyone!

    I am Tina (36) and my Dh is Matt (37). We have a 3.5 year old dd - Anna. She is so girly girl - into the disney princesses and MUST dress herself everyday (if she wears that monkey outfit one more day I am going to scream!!!). We tried for 2 years before getting pg with Anna. We did clomid then Follistim with IUI......we were gearing up for IVF when we got pg with her....

    Natalie is 10 months old. We tried on our own for 13 months before getting pg with her. She is my spunky girl - my daredevil! She is crawling everywhere and talking up a storm! And what a little flirt she is these days. Waving and smiling at everyone. I could just kiss her fat cheeks all day long!

    I am a computer programmer and work 6AM to noon everyday - then 2 hours from home. Dh works 12:30 till 7:00 and then time from home. So we are both full-time but we take turns watching the girls. We are very lucky to get to stay home with them.

    I can't believe my little Naty is going to be ONE soon! Eek!! I have to say I LOVE this age though. She was so colicky as a young baby that I am much more loving these days!
    Tina

    Two precious girls -
    Anna (4/25/03) and Natalie (12/10/05).
