It is National Infertility Awareness Week! This cause is something that is so near and dear to my heart! Navigating the waters of infertility, is rough and very, very messy. No one person’s story is the same and no one will ever understand the battle like those who have experienced it.
After 1,460 days, God revealed his plan to us in the most amazing way, blessing us with a pregnancy
Jay and I struggled for four years to start a family, fighting for a diagnosis, which eventually led to finding out I had stage four endometriosis, starting the adoption process, filling out countless hours of paperwork, working on an adoption profile book, eventually being gifted one from Little Ampersand and co., praying beside expectant mothers who reached out to us in their time of need, all the while grappling with the many unknowns associated with infertility. Finally after 1,460 days, God revealed his plan to us in the most amazing way, blessing us with a pregnancy.
Navigating the waters of infertility, is rough and very, very messy.
One year ago, this week at our first ultrasound, we were shocked to hear two heart beats. What a beautiful surprise to be blessed with not one but TWO miracle babies. We were told not to get our hopes up as often times it is possible that one of the babies wouldn’t make it. This phenomenon is known as vanishing twin symptom, which most often occurs before the 12th week of pregnancy. Over the next six weeks, we continued to pray that our miracle babies would survive, still in shock and awe over the news of our surprise pregnancy. In the weeks following, God continued to reveal himself and his plan for our family. At our twelve week ultrasound, we were so very thankful to AGAIN hear two beautiful heartbeats! I am going to #honormystory this week, by continuing to share the real, raw, and beautiful parts of our fertility journey!
What a beautiful surprise to be blessed with not one but TWO miracle babies.
