Hello! I am so excited to be here! My dh and I have had a long go of it. We always knew we wanted to have a 2nd child, but dh was very ill with a chronic disease for 2 years, then after he was in remission for a year, we decided to TTC and it took us 13 months. We tried 4 medically-stimulated IUI cycles, and the 4th one (with acupuncture added on) was the one that appears to have worked. DD will be nearly 6 when this baby is born, which is more of an age gap than we ever imagined, but I'm so excited that she'll get to be a sister!

For what it's worth, my beta @13dpo=85, and @15dpo=240. Yay!

MDC was such a blessing to me the first time through (I had a different user name in the beginning.) I look forward to hanging out with all of you.

Welcome to the club and congratulations! When I found out I was pregnant, I wasn't very excited about it, we definitely weren't ready! But, Dh and I have been discussing how lucky we are to have the ability to have children and your story is just another example of how precious this little baby is and how lucky I am to be pregnant! So THANK YOU for your story! I needed a reminder
