PandeMommium by Allison Rouble
My name is Allison and I am a married SAHM of 3 kids. A 3 year old daughter and 2 year old boy/girl twins. I originally ventured into the online world with my blog several years back when we got pregnant for the first time with our daughter who unfortunately did not make it and was still born at 5 months. This was extremely devastating for us as we had been suffering from male factor infertility for the 7 years previous and had finally made the decision to use donor
My Maiden Voyage
As this is my maiden voyage posting on my new column PandeMommium,
I thought it only appropriate to share a bit more of myself and how
I became fortunate enough to be able to use the aliases GENdMOM and
PandeMommium and blog about my crazy and wonderful life with 2 year

I was given a bleak outcome, small eggs, big fibroids, 35 years old, IUI with Sperm Donor, there was not a great deal of hope from the doctors side of things, but after so many damn years of wanting kids I was not going to be discouraged. I thanked him, signed the paper work to say I understood that using fertility treatments could increase the chance of multiples which for me sounded like a win, to a fertility doctor it is a loss, the government does not like multiples and doctors that help create them, as they are a strain on the health system with many medical issues early on in their little lives.
