Yes, it's been months since I last posted-- and I apologize-- the pregnancy was a rough one with hyperemesis, and then anemia... and I was allergic to all of the iron supplements they tried on me- exhausted from being anemic plus all the side effects of the hyperemesis. All in all I wouldn't say I was a picture of health or that I had any kind of glow about me. I only found relief in reflexology-- I discovered it a few weeks before I was due and it made me a pleasant person. I highly recommend it to help cope with a rough pregnancy.

The good news is that we had a emergency c-section a week or so ago-- and out came a beautiful baby boy. I won't go into huge details expect to say that pretty much like my whole pregnancy- his arrival was not a smooth one either. But we could not feel more in awe or blessed and we stare at him in amazement that he's ours. So I've answered the lingering question of was 10 months of illness, more than 8 rounds of IVF meds, and 2 miscarriages worth it? Yes, without a doubt. I would not change a thing about it.

Anyhow, recovery is slow ... but I'm getting there and I hope to post more soon. Hugs to all of you how pop in to check on me. I still read your blogs- but I unfortunately forgot my login for several months and was unable to post ... now that it is again in my memory I hope to catch up and let you all know I am still thinking of you.
