Congratulation!!! She is beautiful!! I hope labor wasn't so bad. Can't wait to hear the rest of the story! BTW, coincidentally, Leah was our girl name too if Benjamin was a girl! Also, I wanted to let you know that my DH is now working in NYC and we are moving in April/May!! Maybe in the near future we can connect and our kids can play together! Take good care of yourself and enjoy every moment!!

Congrats. It's been a privilege getting to follow your journey. Having perspectives on both female infertility and male infertility helped support my partner and I as we are TTC.

Best of luck in the coming years and please share as your family grows!
