I am Laura. I have been married to M since 2002. We started trying to make babies in Jan 2003 & in September 2003 were referred for ICSI. We started our first ICSI in January 2004 but unfortunately were unsuccessful. A fresh cycle in July 2004 produced our first son, D.
Fresh cycles in July 2006 & January 2007 resulted in pregnancies, both of which ended in miscarriage.
A frozen cycle in June 2007 & a fresh cycle in October 2007 were unsuccessful.
At the end of our finances & our emotions we embarked on our 7th cycle, a fresh blast cycle, in January 2008 which this blog followed. The cycle was successful & produced our second son, J, in November 2008.
In May 2010 we sold our home and started the process of building a house on a 5 acre small holding that we bought in 2009.
In April 2011 we moved onto our small holding and that is where you can find us now.
In June 2011 IVF #8 failed when the embryo did not survive the thaw. That was our last IVF cycle.
