Donna's Pregnancy Journal ~ a story of pregnancy after infertility

~ Meet Donna!

Donna and Lionel NealHi, I'm Donna Neal, 33 years old, from Auckland, New Zealand. I married Lionel (34 years old) four years ago. We are the proud parents of a Doberman/Rottweiler cross (Horse), one cat (Macguyer ~ a tail-less moggie) and two kittens (Chinno and Muffin).

I am a Registered Nurse, working exclusively in paediatric or neonatal units since qualifying. I now have a management position at the local Children's Hospital. Lionel is an ambulance officer.

We have been trying for four years to start a family, but with up until February of this year, we had no success and no apparent reason for this. Then it was discovered I have a completely blocked left tube, so we started on IVF (in vitro fertilisation). I was lucky enough to get eight eggs fertilised, two were put back, and four have been frozen for later use. We found out on July 7th, that our first cycle had been successful, and I was pregnant.

I would love you to share our journey with Lionel and I, throughout this wonderful pregnancy.
