    I found out yesterday... I got to say, it is a load off my mind... It sure was expensive enough that's for sure.

    My wife and I had to go the IVF route... No jokes about not being able to get pregnant, please. It is insensitive and childish if you do not know how hard it is for some people to get pregnant.

    We will find out how many of the embryos made it in about 6-8 weeks when we go in for the ultrasound...

    Anyway... wanted to share with you all!!

    Mike A!

    Congrats Mike!

    I've known a couple people that had to go the IVF route - it's never easy - mentally mostly to go through all the things that lead up to deciding to go IVF (or cheap). I'm glad it worked out for you!

    Thanks Fitz...

    Now I got to hope I get a healthy baby, and if it is multiples, that at least one of them is a boy...

    :D

    I think it's that touchsmart that's hiding it from you..

    you should get rid of it - i'll take it off your hands, it's a heavy burden, but I'd be willing.. :)
