I'm Trish. I'm 35 and infertile. I'm married to David. He 40. He's even more infertile. After 2 1/2 years, lots of Clomid/IUIs and 2 miscarriages, I got pregnant again. My pregnancy was plagued by unexplained light spotting but otherwise considered normal. At 26w I developed a bad stomach ache. When I saw the doctor expecting some Pepcid, and some instructions to suck it up, we found my blood pressure at 186/116 & protein in my urine. 49 hours later, my beautiful son, Robbie was born. After 96 days in the NICU, he finally joined us at home. He has not been without complications of his extreme prematurity. Therapy of many types, more doctors than we care to remember, 3 years of a feeding tube, and we're hoping for a bright future. What is to come remains to be seen.
After another 2 1/2 years of not preventing, we decided to give a sibling for Robbie a shot. I'm currently gestating a gender-to-be-determined baby, clinging to hope every day for a full term baby.
