This is a beautiful post... your little boy is a lucky one. :)

Oh, Jen, I'm so sorry. Of course Dean is wonderful and your family will have a wonderful life, but it's OK to be sad about what might have been, too.

Thank you for sharing your story with us.

Jen, I want to say I am so sorry, and I think it is a very brave and UNselfish decision that you and Marcus made. I have a friend who has a similiar condition, decided to "risk it" and now has two toddlers at home, while she is hours away at a hospital with her 10 week premature baby.

That is a tough tough final point to have to reach. I don't envy you that. You are right though - even with one (perfect!) child you are so so lucky. And you know from experience that only children can still turn out just fine. More than fine!!

Sorry that this is the end of that portion of life. One good thing - you can "invest" in permanent birth control and not have to worry anymore :)

From what I read between the lines, adoption isn't something you would consider? I don't know if I would ever want to adopt, but we have friends who "love" it (I couldn't think of a better word than love).

Oh, honey - after our talk last weekend, I was afraid this was coming. I'm so sorry that your fears were confirmed. Don't feel bad for feeling sad.
I think making this decision is very wise - for both you and your future baby's health, not to mention for Deano. He deserves a healthy mama.
I'm here if you need to talk about anything.
Love ya cuz. :)

Oh man... that is tough. I think I am dealing with the sort of same thing. I have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. I had my son without help, he was a super surprise... and after him we have been trying, well... for almost two years. We are having to deal with the reality that he may be an only child. Your post was very hopeful! Thank you!


I am so sorry to hear this. I am one of the ones who wanted children so badly and could not have them. When I was in my 20's and 30's it use to bother me a lot. I wanted a baby of my own so badly. I knew it was never to be but still to this day I look at a baby and envy the mother.

Do not feel ugly for feeling bad about this. It is just human nature of someone that has dreamed of having children of her own since childhood. It will get easier as time goes on!
