About Me

Quit birth control 9/10 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. 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 took another break for mental & physical health-allowing my lp to lengthen more.We then quit preventing Sept 2016 & conceived right around my birthday and had our 3rd Rainbow June 2017, God is SO good! Found out I do have a hetero MTHFR mutation. Enter #9&10

My Birth Plan

We weren't sure what the future held for us but we both felt one more was in the cards, I teased 2. I had a bunch of health issues early in 2019 and had wondered if maybe even one wasn't in our cards. Functional med drs thru Cleveland clinic put me on a strict diet to reset my body and symptoms have improved. Still leary I felt called and decided to take a leap of faith and see what God decided and stopped preventing.

Our daughter was born 1/18/2013 in the water at 41wks 3 days weighing 7lbs 14oz 19.5" long 37cm head at a hospital birth center. 7hr labor

Our 1st son was born 2/24/15 in the water at 40wks 4days weighing 9lbs 4oz 20.5" long 38cm head in the comfort our our living room. 6hr labor

Our 2nd son was born 6/11/17 in the water at 40wks 3days weighing 7lbs 9oz 20.5" long 36cm head. Also in the comfort of our living room. 7hr labor

We are on route to another natural home waterbirth and are team green, only God knows the sex of our baby thus far :)

Red raspberry leaf is my friend, some alfalfa, and nettle too.
