We’re a young midwestern couple trying to conceive our first baby since December 2006.  We naively believed that since we’re “young and healthy” (according to my gynecologist) we would have no problems conceiving. After many months trying on our own, we moved on and did five medicated IUI’s and so far we’ve come up empty.  We’re now moving on to IVF and hoping it does the trick because we cannot wait to be parents. These are my thoughts on where we’ve been and where we’re going.
