This is something that my husband have struggled with for the past 10 years. My husband has the Huntington's Disease gene. Basically the currently worst disease known to man. We've been asked hundreds of times when we were going to have kids. Often times I didn't know what to say. Much of the reason I didn't go into it, was because it was my husband's sensitive issue that I knew he wasn't ready for everyone and their dog to know about. But there came a day where we were both tired of hiding. It really did feel like we were alone in this whole "fertile, but shouldn't have kids, but want kids" sort of situation. So I wrote a blog post, and friends and family came out in full support. Now, 2.5 years later, our dream has come true and we are going through IVF/PGD. Something I never thought was a real possibility. I had my egg retrieval this last Monday, and 6/7 eggs fertilized. We are so excited. Even though we still have to wait until we get the results back on how many embryos do not have HD. We are hopeful. We are excited. And we have let our friends and family in on this new journey we are on. Here's my post where I spilled the beans: http://thatssewblake.blogspot.com/2012/08/havin-babies.html

I was really drawn to this blog because of the openness and honesty. Wanting kids and having obstacles in the way is one of the most frustrating things I've ever experienced. I cannot wait to see this movie!
