am a wife, mommy to be, sister, daughter, and an amazing friend. I am married to the love of my life Aaron, we have been together for two years. We were married November 15, 2008 after a whirlwind long distance relationship. We grew up and graduated together but were just good friends. Fate had it that I would text him one day 3 years after last seeing him, 9 months later we wed. God has blessed me with the opportunity to wed my best friend.
We knew immediately we wanted to start a family but I was nervous as I had PCOS which is a condition effecting the ovaries...
I had no idea our journey would be so difficult~
After a year of trying the all natural' way and I had only one menstrual cycle I began to realize that is pretty vital in making a Baby Poplin! Don't get me wrong ladies would die to have that be the norm for them, however it scared me. I also began to worry as I was off my Nuvra Ring for a year and that meant a possible complication. I was put on it in 2007 due to a cyst rupturing on my ovary. Would this happen again? We wanted a baby and I wanted to be safe so I sought help.
After my husband's test came back good on his end, my OBGYN and Fertility Specialist put me on Clomid 50 mg and Metformin 1000mg (daily) in March 2010. I conceived first cycle we were so excited, however April 20, 2010 while my hubby was out to sea I was rushed into surgery alone to have the baby removed at 5 weeks. Baby was in my right tube. I had anger, resentment, and constantly questioned God's judgement. We took three months to recover and I seemed well in June and started cycle 2. It was unsuccessful and I was shocked. First time took, ugh... not this time.
Then it happened~
Cycle three of Clomid in July was successful! August 9, 2010 I received my first positive pregnancy test, yet we knew this didn't mean much until we knew baby was safe and in the right spot! It was torture, every other day for 20 days I was asked to come in for hcg level test to make sure the numbers were climbing and baby was not in my tube. August 23, 2010 we saw baby in the uterus! 6 weeks pregnant and saw the heartbeat. We were elated!
September 17 we saw baby almost 10 weeks old growing well!
We have decided to wait til the birth to find out what we are having, I am more impatient then hubby so we shall see! Due April 16, 2011 God is so good, and we are so blessed!
13 Weeks along, can you see the smile?
