I visited CNY Fertility Center last year in the hopes of becoming pregnant after having a tubal ligation. The decision to have a tubal came after a very unhealthy first marriage, and the subsequent feeling that I would not have more children. But…after I recovered from the emotional aspects of such a relationship, I realized that I wanted more children. I knew it was important to my current partner, and important for me, to be able to have the pregnancy experience that involved love & partnership. However, I still had the limitations of the very physical decision I had made.
We completed one cycle in December 2008 with a few bumps in the road. It did not seem as though my eggs would mature in time for the holiday, but thankfully they did. Then, we got into a car accident on the way to our implantation. Two embryos were implanted, and both took. But, in our 13th week, we lost one of the babies. However, it was that December 24th, 2008 that our now son, Brody Steven was successfully implanted, and it was on August 30, 2009 that he was born.
While I thought there was only one more pregnancy in our future, I am hopeful that the CNY team will be able to make our dream come true one more time!
I am so thankful to be able to have the opportunity to go on this journey with a new child, my partner, and my two older children. I cannot extend enough thanks to the staff, or Dr. Grossman, who met me, and helped me on that snowy, scary Christmas Eve day. Thank you & see you again, soon!
