Welcome ICLW'ers

If you're new to this blog welcome, feel free to comment as u like, and pls follow my blog.
Im not good on the whole 'about me ' bit but a quick run down, been ttc for a very long time off and on for about 10 yrs , couldn't do anything major as iui and so because of where im located,  did clomid unsuccessfully a number of times, went through dozens of poas moments all of which turned out BFN. Then one day i mustered up the courage to go and do a formal diagnostic test in order to get some answers, so i went and did an hsg, which to my horror, revealed bilateral tubal occlusion, was so distraught went to my ob/gyn hoping he would tell me the results were wrong, instead he said my only chance of getting pregnant was ivf.
So i decided to go with his idea, i contacted an ivf clinic in barbados and set my cycle for april 2012, started doing the tests required and then had to wait a few months to start meds, however in jan of said 2012 iaf was late as usual, so i just did a random poas just tp out my mind to rest so af would show up and what do u know BFP!

Lost support!

I never thought i'd be writing this sorta blog post. it seems to me that since ive gotten pregnant naturally, ive lost the support of u guys who are still trying and going through procedures, maybe it's because u think i was  lying all this time, but why would i be? I have not been preventing pregnancy since i was around 17yrs old, when i met dh  10 or so years ago we started actively trying, for the past 3 years i been undergoing treatments, (numerous clomid cycles), last march i did an hsg which confirmed my fears that i wouldnt be able to have children, because it showed my tubes were blocked,i then decided to move onto ivf right away , as was recommended by my ob/gyn, and was scheduled for my first ivf cycle in april(actually i probably wouldve been right in the middle of it now) but by some miracle(which i needed as i didnt knw how i was going to pay for the ivf) i found myself pregnant, in jan of this year.
After saying all this, it just hurts me deeply to see that the community i thought i belonged to has abandoned me, there are time when i come on here(like now) feeling so low, needing a little comment to cheer me up, and nothing!
Anyway i hope u guys are doing ok, every once in a while i stop in and comment on ur blogs but dont check for responses cause that may be disappointing to also find none!

so i went in for an u/s at 17w 5 d and it was absoloutel awesome, i actually for the first time saw the baby, my baby in there. Going in to the u/s i was so nervous what if something had gone wrong and the baby was dead, or worst yet there was no baby! Anyway i mustered up the courage and went in the tech put the gel and the probe on my belly, my heart sank as she rolled it around and didnt say anything, then , she turned the screen my way and there it was, heart beating, jumping around arms and legs moving away, it was the most incredible experience i had to date.....and now for the good news
