Now, every one of you who read my blog on a regular basis (and are not just here for those giveaways..), know that I hold trying to conceive and all the hardships that come with it, near and dear to my heart.
Most of you know that I had a lot of trouble trying to conceive our third baby. With three miscarriages in the past (one in between each child), I was feeling VERY helpless and alone.
It was a very dark time for me and I was very depressed and upset with myself and with the doctors that helped make me unable to conceive easily..
When you WANT a baby so badly, and you cannot make one and have it stay inside of you, it is VERY difficult. The emotions were raw and I wanted to crawl under a big rock and just stay there.
Don’t get me wrong, and I feel like I HAVE to say this so I don’t get rude comments, I AM thankful for my other two MIRACLES. I am very thankful that I already had two amazing, smart and lovable babies to hold and kiss daily. BUT, something was missing, and it was a third little one. I KNEW there was another one out there for us, I just knew it..
I did everything a mama that is trying to conceive did. I charted, I took ovulation tests, I bought pregnancy tests (20 at a time, sometimes more..) and I prayed.
Every one of those months when those pregnancy tests stared me in the face with ONE line, I cried. I stayed in bed and I cried.
I got back on my feet a few days later, only to do it ALL over again…
We had countless IUI’s, took medications and more, to no avail. I gave myself shots to help me pinpoint ovulation, to no avail. I was worn out and tired of it all.
So, we GAVE UP…
The month we gave up, we became pregnant. By the grace of God, we got pregnant. And, I found out later on, that I conceived on the side WITH NO TUBE.
9 months later, little Kellan Dax came into this world FAST. I barely made it to the hospital before he made his appearance. I thank the Lord everyday for him and for my other two miracles.
So all you sweet mamas who are trying to conceive, going through hell and back to get a baby here, safe and sound, I feel you. I pray for you and I hope that you will be able to see those two lines on that pregnancy test SOON. Stay hopeful.
