Deciding to try for a baby is the easy part. It’s from there on in that things get tricky.

Sex does not equal baby.

Ovulation
Sufficient, decent sperm
Doctors
Diagnosis
Money
Responding to drugs
Then more drugs
But not too much
Egg collection
Mature eggs
Fertilization
2 cells
4 cells
8 cells
Morula
Blastocyst
Transfer
More drugs
Implantation
hCG doubling
And continuing to rise adequately
Heart rate
Staying pregnant
Tests
Morph scan
Staying pregnant
Labour
Birth

Lots of hurdles to overcome.
