It feels like a long time since I have posted here and I miss you ladies. My water broke at 1:15 AM on my due date - pretty unusual to have this happen. I was in labor for over 24 hours and almost had to go for a C-Section when my little ones heart beat dipped a few times. I have a wonderful 2nd degree tear but would do it again in a heartbeat and low and behold my son - Aiden Paul was born on August 20th at 3:22 AM weighing 7.2 pounds and he was 19.5 inches long. After a pregnancy full of morning sickness almost until the end - which was why I didn't post as much as I would have liked to. I wanted to post this because I received such support from the ladies on this board during my pregnancy and my infertility journey. I recognize a lot of you ladies here and wish you the best of luck with your pregnancies - it's absolutely worth the two IVF cycles my husband and I went through and we are incredibly grateful that our beautiful baby boy is finally here I would love to post a pic or two of him but would need some help - if someone can let me know how to do that I would be more than happy to
