Intro... My husband and I started trying to conceive on my 26th birthday. We tried for almost a year and then got the news that my husband had MFI. We were young and broke since we had just bought a home and started our own business (commission only) so we had to save up for the IVF ($25k total for the 3 cycle package our clinic offered). We worked our buns off, made the money and after two rounds we finally got our positive pregnancy test 4 years after we first started trying! Best 29th birthday gift ever!
Our son was born in November and he is everything we were hoping for and more! Before I ever knew we would fight with infertility, I wanted 3-4 children but that obviously changed. I'm thrilled that we have one child, and I'm so thankful that we were able to conceive and that we have a happy healthy child. I just keep coming back to the idea of giving him a sibling... My son just turned 4 months old, I know it's really early to start thinking about this again but I can't shake it. I'm turning 30 next week, and I know I have some time but I also know it gets harder every year that goes by.
Did any of you ladies try to go for #2 quickly after #1? I'm thinking about trying again about the time that my son turns 1, which means I would be done breastfeeding and I think my body would be ready. I really don't know though, I haven't called the clinic yet to find out what their suggestion would be on minimum amount of time in between. The cost won't be as hard this time, but I am not looking forward to all the pain of the injections and the hope/possible disappointment. I was just hoping to hear what your experiences have been like. Thanks for the support!
