"I had been pregnant twice before, so I couldn't imagine why would this time be different, especially when we had transferred our lowest graded embryo. The reality is, after experiencing pregnancy loss, infertility and failed transfers, I felt deprived of the joy of pregnancy."

"Our wild and wonderful first 2.5 years as parents was also full of loss and heartbreak. We did two egg retrievals, four transfers of six embryos, and had three pregnancy losses after Fiona was born."

"When we had our miscarriage, it was absolutely devastating and so confusing, as we had seen our little growing baby on the ultrasound screen just seven days earlier."
