I miscarried my twins on my frist trimester and it broke me..I can't hear anything.. After sometime, when I was ready, we tried again.. we tried and tried until one day, we found ourselves on an IVF clinic.. and yes, we did it.. it was expensive and after two failed rounds and continues heartache, we decided to try a different route.. even tried acupuncture and Chinese herbs and still no sign of pregnancy.. I was about to give up but my husband wasn't ready to do that.. he searched and I tried different medicines available on the internet (nothing to lose).. after cycles of pills from conceiveeasy, I am now 18 weeks pregnant.. miracles do happen! :)
