About MeQuit birth control Sept 2010 shortly after our wedding in hopes to ttc after the new year. Gave it a go Dec & was shocked to find out Christmas day(1day late) that we were pregnant, sadly I started bleeding the next day. We were told wait 1 cycle before trying again, so that is what we did. Shocked to feel pinchy & Nauseous 9dpo(day before Valentine's day) I decided to test. Was shocked to see a 2nd line & so soon! Made it about a week before I began bleeding & it took about a month to complete, while they tested my hcg & wondered about an ectopic, of many other possibilities. We waited a few cycles & tried, actually TRIED! Opks, timed sex, the whole bit...NOTHING! So we decided to take a break & focus on health, mental & physical. I lost 20lbs & kept charting. Finally felt good enough April 2012, so we quit preventing but decided to never "try" again & let God lead. Low and behold that cycle brought us our 1st Rainbow, our daughter! After all we went thru, we opted to leave our fertility in God's hands to when & if we had another. Dec 2013 I had extreme sharp pains in my side which led to an ER visit where we found I was about 6wks pregnant but it was ectopic & my tube had already ruptured. I was rushed for emergency surgery & lost our baby & my right tube. It was devastating & I had to learn how to trust my body all over again. By May 2014 we were just focusing on & thankful for the blessing we did have, our daughter. Were surprised to find out in June we had conceived on our 4th anniversary, was nervous but put our faith in God. In 2015 gave birth to our 2nd Rainbow, our son! We had 2 more losses between him & lost my mother to cancer, so had taken another break for mental & physical health-allowing my luteal phase to lengthen more.We then quit preventing Sept 2016 & conceived right around my birthday. We are excited to be expecting our 3rd Rainbow! God is SO good!
