The Beginning

1 year ago today was the beginning of long road to where we are to today. A small part of myself met up with a small part of Jess in Somerset, NJ (Which by the way took some pretty slick coordinating by the medical professionals 😉 ). The result was nothing short of a miracle!  Every appointment, shot, surgery, and heartache, was well worth it.  For all who have been through the journey, or are just starting, don’t ever give up!!  I would not be the person I am today if I had.  This process made me a better man, a better father.  Without this I would never have met the most precious little miracle that fills my life with joy and pride.  My Baby Girl!

  • Jess Says:

    Congratulations! I hope one day I’ll be there too. It’s so hard to believe it sometimes. I feel like there are those who get lucky on the first try, and the rest of us left in purgatory forever. But I’ll keep going for the hope that this could be my happy ending too.

    @Jess, We spent about 4 years in purgatory as well. You will get your happy ending, never give up hope!!

    Your daughter is beautiful!!!! I agree with you completely about the journey of IF. As hard as it was, it completely changed me and I really feel like it made me a better parent. I don’t take one minute with my Bean for granted and I feel like I’ve been given a gift everyday. Enjoy your little girl, the time goes by so quickly!

    Having read through your blog from 9 weeks onwards which is where I am right now, I have a tear in my eye. I too have started my own story after trying for a long time, getting pregnant and then having to cope with the heartache of a MC. Now being 9 weeks, hoping and praying with every fibre of my being that things will be ok, your story gives me hope and makes me excited for whatever I have in store over the upcoming months. Thank you for sharing your story, and I would like to wish you all lots of future happiness.

    Huge congrats. Just read your blog, start to finish. We’re at the start, hope we get to the same end you got to.

    Thank you so much for sharing your story. I am reading it with my husband as we have taken a few days off to recover from his surgical sperm retrieval. It’s so nice to hear a mans perspective and for him to realise he’s not alone going through these challanges. I’m so glad to hear that your outcome was good and that you now have a beautiful daughter. We have six weeks wait to find out if they have managed to get any viable sperm or if it’s the end of the road for us. Thanks again for sharing, I wish you and your family everything you wish for yourselves.

    Thank you so much for sharing your aweful and wonderful times throughout this miracle-making. My husband is in the exact situation you were in at the beginning and I pray that we will be able to create our own child. I am so joyful on your behalf! May your daughter grow into a world of happiness.

    Congratulations, what a great story.
    I went thru my first surgery, but unfortunately it did not succeed.
    Was wondering if you could at all share the name of your doctor (if not publicly then privately)?
