  • Hi
    I thought I would post a brief little bit about myself as some of you might not know me. My names is Valerie (22) and I've been married to my wonderful Dh Mike for almost 3 years. We live in Central Ohio; Dh works in the computer industry and I work with a nonprofit organization that provides residential care for MRDD clients. We have 4 cats and 13 fish.

    Our journey to parenthood hasn't been an easy one we've had 3 miscarriages (4/01,10/01,9/03), one daughter Angelina stillborn at 23w5d in 7/04....which we then got pregnant right afterwards and had our son Sean Michael on 4/7/05 @ almost 37 weeks.... Sean died of SIDS at the age of 8 weeks on 6/7/05. After feeling the joy of having a child in ourlives we've somehow managed to find the courage to try once again.

    In our TTC journey we've used BBT charting, CB Fertility monitor, I was also on Clomid for a few cycles to achieve our pregnancy in 2003. If I don't know something I'm more than happy to find out for ya'll.

    Look forward to getting to know everyone.

  • It's great to meet you!! I hope you have a happy ending!!!!!!!!!!!

    I have a 5 month old son and am adopting my 6 yr old nephew. We want another baby to be close in age to Dewey and I am scared to wait too long to try again, as it took us a long time to have him! I am hoping his birth sufficiently "roto-rootered" me and this time conception will be easier. I'm thinking positively for all of us!!!

  • Valerie - I've seen your name, and talked to you ... but I can't say that I've ever heard your story before. What courage you and DH have. God bless you.

  • Valerie,

    I was just lurking through the boards...I haven't been here since my m/c in 2003 (at least on the ttc boards, that is). I have been on this site for nearly 5 years and have seen your posts many times over the years. I just wanted to say how incredibly sad I am at reading of you losing your son to SIDS. I didn't even know you had finally gotten pg, much less had a son. My heart breaks at reading this and I just wanted to send you hugs. I cannot imagine that and wish you all the best in ttc again. HUGS!!
