Fresh Start

Over the last few months I haven't spoken about our continuing journey to start a family. Since our ectopic pregnancy in September we have put any infertility treatments on the back burner. To be honest I was scared, I was scared to get to try and get pregnant again, I was scared to have another ectopic. The toll that it took on my emotions and my body was beyond painful. I am no longer scared and I want to continue this journey and see where it takes us. We have already talked about surrogacy, IVF and adoption..these are always very real options for us. After 5 1/2 years and 6 miscarriages something has got to give.

All around us we have had many people announce pregnancies, have babies and some that are due to give birth any day now. While it is hard to not wish it was me, I know deep down that it will happen for us one way or another. After the new year we plan on getting back on the infertility treatment road, if miraculously we end up pregnant before the end of the year that would be a huge blessing. We are going to essentially start from square one, new blood work and tests will be done. There is a reason that we are going through all of this, I just know it.

The one thing that we are 100% certain about is that we will be parents, one way or another. :) 





 I hope you all have a wonderful day!

  2. Thank you for sharing - it can be hard to put such personal information out there. But everything happens in due time, and when you do become a parent, you'll know every circumstance was perfect.
    You and your husband will be in my prayers!

  33. As someone who is just starting out on our first fertility appointments after years of trying, my heart pours out for you. I know how it feels to want to be a parent so bad and seeing others come by it so "easily." God has a plan, and we just have to trust that when he is ready he will make it known.
