Beyond Infertility

Who am I?

My first marriage went down the tubes around the time my ex-husband said, “Then it wouldn’t be mine,” in response to a very poignant question I asked.  You see, we had been trying to get pregnant for some time.  We were unsure where the problem existed, and as a probing question, I asked, “We could try infertility treatments.”  He flat out refused.  “We could consider adoption then,” I stated.  He firmly believed that if you adopt the child isn’t “yours.”  *sigh*  At a crossroads, we parted ways.  He would have been content without children, and I would never have been.

Very early on in my relationship with my husband, I made it very clear that there could be an issue in the baby making department.  I told him I might not be able to have children, and he very quickly responded, “We’ll just have to find another way then.”  I fell in love with him right then and there.  He has held true to this statement on so many levels.  I’m thankful for his support and love.  Oh, don’t get me wrong, he’s still male and prone to drive me to insanity, but I do love his very very much.

I’ll make a very long story short, I had a septum in my uterus.  I have PCOS and premature ovarian failure.  We walked the adoption path and infertility treatments simultaneously.  We adopted first, and our son came to us healthy at 5 weeks old through s.oc.ial s.erv.ices.  He was born in early 2007.  That was an insane roller coaster to say the least, but I am so beyond thankful for our handsome little man.  We’ll give him the screen name Blue.  We made our way up through the chain of infertility treatments to IVF with donor eggs.  That brought us our daughter, screen alias of Pink, in early 2009.  We have a few embryos on ice, and we haven’t quite determined what to do with them yet.
