Good News!

I have just one thing to say right now.

My wife is pregnant.

It took 5 years, 3 rounds of invitro, and $30,000, but we are finally going to have children of our own. Yes, you heard right, children. Early tests indicate that she is carrying twins or more.

I couldn't happier.

We have it rough on the child front. first finding out that we could not have children naturally. Then a failed round of invitro, then a miraculous pregnancy that turned out to be ectopic anyway, then a round of invitro that suceeded at first, but not really. It was just a chemical pregnancy and we lost the baby. Now, finally, a confirmed pregnancy with 2 or more babies. we transferred 3 embryos, and one looked like it might twin, so we have 2-4 coming. We are going from childless to a full house in 9 months! It's gonna be great!

Yes, I know it will also be expensive and sleepless, but it will be worth it.


  • This is great news for you and your wife!

    I am curious about the religious perspective on IVF though. My ignorance on religious American matters led me to think that the pro-lifer types, which I assume you are one of, are also opposed to this sort of thing as it is 'playing God.' I think it is a great use of modern science of course.

  • WONDERFUL! Congratulations! All the best, may they be healthy and happy and may they sleep through the night by six weeks! ;)

    Something to keep in mind and worked wonders for us when we were new parents...the calmer you stay, the calmer your baby stays. Babies sense your unease and stress and they get cranky! Calm babies also stay healthier. OK, I'm done with my "Mom" advice! ;)

  • Dan - Congrats for you & your wife! I know you have to be thrilled!

    My wife & I cannot have children, but we have a teenager from a previous marriage. Boy, does he keep us hopping!

  • My husband and I cannot have children too as we are both guys but we hope to adopt one day.

    Until then we have lots of Uncle Duty to do with various cute little kids to play with and read books to.

  • I wish you and your wife well, Daniel, and the children, of course, and I hope all goes well in their future.

    Seans: Praise God!

    I’m more inclined to praise the doctors, technicians and medical scientists and their knowledge of reproduction and embryology.

  • More of you? Oh noes!

  • Congrats Daniel, but how is the Army healthcare system? and do you think that's it sufficient enough to sustain your soon to be family of 2 children or more?
    I'm curious about armed forces benifits and would like to better understand them.

  • The Second Amendment means nothing outside of hunting.

    Our forefathers gave us that right to fend off a military takeover in the U.S. - by
    either the left or the right.

    Apparently, since most gun owners are far right they didn't see fit to fight the far
    right takeover so here we are. On the verge of martial law.

    You'll imitate your German counterparts of 70 years ago. You'll allow them to take away
    any weapon that gives you parity with the military. You know you barely made a peep when
    the Brady Bill took away your assault rifles, which is what you'll need to effectively
    combat troops.

    What a bunch of cowards, and what a sore disgrace you are to our forefathers who gave
    their blood for the likes of you.

    In Jesus' Glorious and Holy name,

  • All,

    Again, thank you for all your kind words and supprt.


    I have left the Army. But the Army Healthcare system is more than capable of handling multiples and large families, and even families with disabilities. It is top flight healthcare, and it is free to serviceembers and their families.


    What does that have to do with anything in this post?
