Why Am I Thinking Maybe Another Baby (Despite Infertility)?

Will you have more children? I have been getting this question a lot lately. I don't blame anyone for asking (even my mother-in-law). It took about five years to conceive my daughter, K. She is now almost two years old. I will be 35 this year (35 is the age when you are considered a pregnant senior citizen by the medical powers that be.) ...more
