Re-introduction (child mentioned)

Hello ladies! I wanted to take a minute to re-introduce myself. DH and I are both 34 and have struggled with infertility for a few years before turning to IVF. I was a very active member on these boards back in 2016 when I was going through my first IVF cycle. We were very fortunate that the first FET we did was successful and as a result we now have a beautiful 13 month old baby boy. However, I do know the struggle of going through infertility and the emotional toll it takes. We recently decided to go for baby #2 and had our second FET. Unfortunately, it was not successful :disappointed:. We don't have anymore embryos left in storage, so we're starting the process all over again shortly. When I was active on these boards in 2016, I got to know so many wonderful and supportive ladies. This community is like no other and I'm grateful for the friends I made here, near and far. Hoping to connect with everyone here again :heart:
