Once Upon a Time....Happily Ever After

After 3 IVF cycles + 1 FET, we are delighted to welcome our little miracle, Jules.  He has brought us so much happiness in such a short amount of time already!  Motherhood is simply amazing and certainly a lot of work!! 

To make a long story short, the labour was very long and painful, as the epidural tube fell out of my back, so I was in screaming pain.  For about 10 hours the mid-wife kept saying "the pain is normal" rather than investigating why the epidural wasn't working. 

On the other hand, when the doctor arrived, he was super awesome.  The actual pushing only took about 20 minutes and when the baby had his head and arms out, the doctor told me to reach out, take the baby and pull the rest of him out myself.  I was quite surprised that he wanted me to pull the baby out of myself, but I did and it was unbelievable.  Certainly a memorable moment!

Well, this is the end of my blog.  I achieved what we wanted and now we are embarking upon a new adventure.  Infertility was a long journey (about a 5 year process for us), however we conquered it and now we are a family of 3 with a lot of cats in tow.  Thanks for the support, comments and positive vibe I have received from everyone.  It was a bumpy ride, but we made it!!
