      FACT. My co-worker and her husband tried everything to get pregnant. She finally gave up and adopted and child. 6 months later she was pregnant. She still thinks it was the acupuncture.

        I know a couple that adopted a boy and found out they were having twins in the process. They have 3 kids in the 7th grade now.


        Congrats to you and your wife.

          My wife and I tried IVF multiple times, at a cost of over $10,000+. Didn’t work

          We had filled out loan documents for an egg doner, and we were going to pick a doner that week. The Sunday before submitting the loan packet and choosing a donor, we learned she was pregnant. What a moment that was

          It was a true miracle (and a hell of a foot massage I gave her a few weeks earlier :yes:).

          Kev, I really am so happy for you. As said above, to really WANT kids is so special compared to just “having them”.

          Now get some sleep, you’re gonna miss it in the near future.

            Congrats! My wife and I have 17 year old twins and it's been a great journey (expect the part about paying for everything for 2 at the same time - like college next fall). Two pieces of advice: One, get sleep whenever you can - there's a reason sleep deprivation is an effective means of torture. Two, don't be too proud to ask you friends for the diaper coupons from their newspaper - If you don't belong to Bj's, Costco, or Sam's Club, join one of them and buy formula and diapers in bulk; you will go broke if you don't.

                I always say give me a truck load of boys over one girl and you are well on your way,congrats.
                As a baby shower present my wife payed for a diaper club for all our grandkids, easily the best gift they received. They just show up at the door each month.
                I would suggest you throw out a hint to one of the inlaws.

                  Congrats Kev. That's awesome. Hope they bring you a lot of joy, happiness, and sleepless nights! You're good people!

                  My wife is an acupuncturist and has a lot of success w/ woman who tried everything and gave acupuncture a shot.

                  We may adopt an older kid one day (soon). I'm retiring in 18 months from the CG and the wife has never had kids (I have a 26 year old)....so we talked about finding a 5 to 15 year old to adopt to give a real home.

                    This is great news! Congratulations and yes, God is good.

                    This is very common as sometimes the stress of getting pregnant is lessened once the mom/dad believe it is no longer possible to do so and then, voila'!! You're pregnant.

                                      Congrats Kev. When one door shuts, the Good Lord opens another. I'm excited for you and your wife.

                                      Now rest up :)

                                                Our community sprung up when the Gatorsports message board was shut down in the summer of 2014. We pride ourselves on offering Gator-biased, yet critical discussion among people of all different backgrounds. We are working every day to make sure our community is the best Gator message board you will find.
