We had fertility issues. Of this I have made no secret. We actually know three other couples who had fertility issues and met with success using precisely the same drug that is responsible for the medical miracle known as Zachary.
One of those couples is a cousin and his wife. Feeling some sort of cousinly rivalry, they couldn’t just conceive a child on the same drug we used. No, they conceived twins just a few months after I got pregnant with Benjamin. Twin boys (who, I might add, were successfully breastfed for a very long time. I add this because every time I think of it, I gasp in awe of their mother. I think I would have needed to be catheterized had I breastfed two children at the same time.)
Well, it seems we are once again in lockstep, because these fools were using the same damned birth control that we were. With the same results. When are people going to learn? A PAST HISTORY OF INFERTILITY IS A LOUSY METHOD OF BIRTH CONTROL. Write it down, OK?
So, to our cousins, congratulations. To the other two couples we know who conceived children on the same drug as we did? I hope you people are paying attention.
