He's Here!!

Those of you who commented and guessed that my next post would be a baby announcement were right on. The contractions I was experiencing on Friday were the real thing, and Braxon Emory was born at 3:15 pm on Saturday, April 9--the day before his due date. He weighed in at 7lbs 8oz, 20 inches, with a full head of brown hair. I am doing well, and he is absolutely perfect. We got home from the hospital last night.

I promise to post my birth story and some pictures soon, but I wanted to get this up here first and not make you all wait for me to have a chance to record all the details right away.

I randomly found your blog and reading this gives me a glimmer of hope!! I am 34 and was diagnosed with hypothalamic amenorrhea 4 1/2 yrs ago. At the time, I Was training for a marathon and went from 5'6", 119 to 109 lbs. My period just stopped.

I have always been active but the lack of periods didn't bother me until this Jan 2011 when my husband and I began discussing babies. My hormones are still low (estrogen 35) LH/FSH low but I have gained the weight back to 119 and obviously stopped running!

We did a failed injectible IUI cycle with Menopur in February. :( MY RE won't do CLomid as she thinks I wont respond given my diagnosis. I have also tried acupuncture and herbs, but to no avail.

I really want to ask you what you think the BIGGEST factor was in you finally ovulating and conceiving. It's a frustrating journey....

Congrats on your beautiful baby!
