About Me

Quit BCP9/10..12/25/10(15dpo)tested +, ended in mc. 2/13/11(9dpo) +! Sadly mc,took about a month to complete, while they tested my hcg &wondered about an ectopic,among other things. 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. Finally 4/12, we quit preventing but decided not to "try". That cycle brought us our 1st Rainbow! After everything, we opted not to prevent, &12/2013 I had extreme sharp pains in my side which led to an ER visit where we found I was about 6wks pregnant, ectopic &my tube had already ruptured. I was rushed for emergency surgery &lost our baby &my right tube. Devastated I had to learn how to trust my body all over again. 6/14 we were focusing on &thankful for the blessing we did have &surprised to find out we had conceived on our 4th anniversary, our 2nd Rainbow! We had 2 more losses between him &lost my mother to cancer, so took another break for mental &physical health-allowing my lp to lengthen more.We quit preventing 9/16 &conceived right around my birthday, our 3rd Rainbow! Found out I do have a heteroMTHFR mutation. We weren't sure what the future held for us but we both felt 1 more was in the cards, I teased 2. I had a bunch of health issues early in 2019 &had wondered if maybe even 1 was in our cards. IFM Drs put me on a strict diet to reset my body & symptoms improved! Still leary felt called & took a leap of faith & stopped preventing. 2nd cycle not preventing we conceived &went on to miscarry what seemed to be frat.twins around 5wks. Still scared we still had faith that we were where God needed us to be and pushed on. 2nd cycle after mc we conceived again, sadly we miscarried. So took a break had some testing done &tried a few medicated cycles to no avail & now here we are!
