Zoe’s Story

Hello, my name is Zoe and I am originally from England. I moved to America ten years ago after I met and fell in love with an American. When we first married we said we would wait five years until we had a baby, notice I said “had”! Like so many others, I thought I would come off birth control one month and be pregnant the next!  That would make this introduction so much shorter wouldn’t it?

After just two years of marriage, we didn’t want to wait any longer so officially started trying to get pregnant in June 2009. It became painfully evident quickly that there were problems. My menstrual cycles lasted 100 days and I wasn’t ovulating.  After lots of Googling I self-diagnosed myself with PCOS. Since we owned our own business again like so many of you we didn’t have a lot of money. To top it off, we had terrible health insurance and couldn’t go to an RE.
