So, in 2010 my obgyn referred me to an RE in my town. Well, he said weight had a lot to do with it, so I tried to lose weight. I lost a little and we did 2 rounds of clomid, when that was not working we did clomid, shots, and iui. It was again a big disappointment on top of the craziness the meds caused me. I had a moment of clarity and we took some time off. Fast forward to 2011, new obgyn and new thing thrown at me.... weightloss surgery. Fast forward to Nov 2012 I bit the bullet, committed to losing the weight, had surgery, and 11 months and 90 lbs later we start trying again after 4 1/2 year of never getting pregnant. With A LOT of prayer and ovulation sticks, I was sure I was out, but low and behold, our prayers were answered. Unfortunately, the weekend after my confirmation appointment with a new obgyn and close friend, I started miscarrying. At that point it was bitter sweet. I was so happy, happier than I have ever been for the 10 or 12 days that I knew I was pregnant... As much pain as I was feeling afterwards, I had to hold on to the fact that I had gotten pregnant without meds and or doctors.
Today (of all days) is the start of a new cycle and we have the hope that this cycle could be our very own Christmas miracle. The holidays have always been a little tough, this one will be a little tougher, knowing I should have been ending my first trimester on Christmas eve... We were so excited. We even got reveal pictures taken the day before the miscarriage happened to give as Christmas gifts. Thank you for taking the time to read about me, and more importantly for the prayers! Please leave me comments of things you would like prayers for. I am praying the St. Andrews Novena right now and would love to pray for you too!
