I have been reading the forums for a week or two and thought I should introduce myself.
I am very happily married to a lovely fella and I have a DSD 14years, a DSS 9 and another DSD 5 all totally gorgeous kids (apart from occasional hormone based freakouts from 14 year old - no surprise there though!). We have been together four years and got married last year.
In Sept my DH told me he was having a reversal, which he did in Oct, now we have a three month count down until we are TTC. I can't quite believe it. I can only imagine that this is how people feel who are told they can't have children and then they do. Hopefully it will all go well and there will be bub #4 in our happy home but the fact that he is even doing this is completely amazing to me. I want to tell everyone how fab he is but we are keeping it a secret until we are pregnant. So here I am!
Am looking forward to getting lots of advice and support and giving it where I can.

Hi there and welcome!
Great to see you here and congrats on the reversal! Hubby and I went through this, and now we have a happy, healthy baby boy who joined our family earlier this year!
With our daughter and his three older children, our family is complete now.
Wishing you all the very best with your family expansion!!
