This is my journey to motherhood. It's a bumpy road, but I'm traveling it whole heartedly.

Latest Counselor Appt
So I went to my counselor again this morning. I guess I'm not used to the whole say what you're thinking thing. I'm a listener, I don't like to talk all that much, unless someone directly asks me a question or I really have something to say. There were moments of just silence, which was quite uncomfortable. She finally started asking me some questions, so I started talking again, but I don't know, it wasn't quite what I was expecting. She still thinks that I have anaclitic depression, basically b/c I was in daycare from the time I was a baby. Because of my genetics I'm extremely susceptible to depression (I already knew this b/c my parents and both sets of grandparents had it), but that the "seperation" from my parents at such a young age, caused my depression to occur really early in life, and basically will be life-long. Well that's just great, exactly what I needed to hear, depression for life, whohoo. As if I don't already have life-long health problems. I have another appt set up for next Wed, so we'll see how it goes.
My name is Melissa and I'm 28 years old. I've been married to my husband for six years. We've been together since we were 18. We started TTC in May of 2007. I've been thru 8 rounds of Clomid, 3 IUIs, and IVF#1 which all resulted in BFNs. FET#1 and IVF#2 ended in chemical pregnancies. FET#2 resulted in our little miracle Liam, born 8-17-11. This is now my journey through motherhood and past infertility.
