Kristina, Hi I've been following your blog for a long time now (I think I started in 2009?)

Anyway My husband and I started trying in 2006 as well. I was diagnosed in 2005 as having PCOS so starting to try right away was a must for us since we knew from research it wouldn't be easy.

A year and a half in we looked to adoption. But that fell through in 2008. We were heartbroken.

The next year I became very sick and thought I was just having a rough time with my asthma. But it was pneumonia. My OB left her practice as an OB to become a GP so I followed but it took a while for her practice to start taking my insurance. So in May 2009 I saw her and she treated me for my pneumonia.

In July I went back for my yearly visit and I told her everything we'd tried. She put me on metformin. That month I became pregnant. I knew from other friends having PCOS that it wasn't the norm. I felt blessed but saddened that my friends hadn't gotten their miracle babies yet. I felt so bad.

Our joy didn't last long bad things started happening in my second trimester. they found a tear and a few weeks later I had a sweet little boy named Lukas born into heaven on October 22, 2009.

I wanted to be pregnant again right away but it didn't happen right away. In March 2011 I found out I was pregnant again.

Our sweet little girl joined her brother on may 24, 2011. 3 days later we'd learn that my grandmother had terminal breast cancer and she passed away 6 weeks later.

Our insurance is pretty bad, we pay a majority of the bills and it doesn't cover anything dealing with fertility.

One day we'll get our miracle babies!

Praying for you guys!

That made me cry. Like Sarah said, beautiful, sad & hopeful all at once. I can't even begin to imagine what all you have been through.

Good luck! I hope you get your family soon!!
