"We got married when I was 26 and immediately began the decision process for picking a sperm donor and finding a fertility clinic.
There’s a lot of successes with IUI and it was cheaper than IVF. We did six rounds of IUI, and it just wasn't working. We found out I had a blockage in one of my fallopian tubes, so we got that flushed out, and then did another IUI, and that still didn't work.
So we did IVF, and the process took a little over a year. We were finally pregnant. It was wonderful – we were overjoyed. So happy.
When you’re doing IVF, you're just going through the motions every month. When we got our due date of December 27th, we were like, Oh God, that's Christmas! What did we do? Why didn't we wait a month?! What is wrong with us?!"
