A Sibling for Drake? Part One

After you had your first (and/or only) baby, how long did it take for the comments about number two to come along? I was actually pretty surprised. We didn't get too many questions, but maybe it's because people are aware of what it took to get Drake here. I have always wanted more than one child. I actually would love to have three. Jason thinks we should stop at two. I say it depends on what it takes to get two. :-) lol!

You know you've heard the stories about people getting pregnant right after delivering a baby that was conceived with infertility treatments. So, after Drake was born, I knew another baby so soon just wouldn't work for me. I went back on the pill. After a few months on the pill, I came to my senses and realized that this was crazy. It took me 5 years of being off the pill, 3 Clomid cycles, 3 IUIs, and 2 IVF cycles to get my little man Drake....so, I ditched it! We officially started trying for #2 in January.

I had my annual in March and talked to my doctor about the option of "starting over" with Clomid come the fall and she was totally fine with that. In April, we found out that we might be losing our amazing insurance, and I was more than a little nervous. I would get to keep my ob/gyn, but I would have to drive three hours for every appointment with my RE if that were necessary. Thankfully, the contract was extended until the end of September and then we found out that we are actually set until June 2012...yeah!
 
In July, Jason had another semen analysis since it had been so long since his last one. Everything came back normal, and we did Clomid for my August cycle.That cycle was kind of a mess because they believe I ovulated over a weekend when I didn't have an appointment. AF arrived a day early...August 20th.

We were planning to do another round of Clomid in August, but I had a cyst when I went in for my ultrasound. That never happened before.
