I never would classify myself as someone who is lucky. My husband and I often joke that bad luck follows us. We've experienced a lot of hard ship, loss, and difficulties but one thing that left me broken was being told last May that after 4 years of fertility treatments we would never have another child. That is just wasn't possible.
When I was younger I was told my chances of having children would be slim and I'd have a long hard journey but as a teen it wasn't something that really effected me. Then I had Johnny completely unplanned and ON birth control. A few years later his father and I talked to a specialist about getting pregnant again and was told just a short list of things that we'd have to start doing and decided to wait. Little did we know we weren't going to be waiting at all. Just a couple months later we were pregnant again- unplanned.
For someone who was told there was a chance of never having kids I was doing pretty good without even trying. Then a few years ago we spoke to a specialist after trying with no success. We started the process and before long we were years in of treatment plans, drugs, injections, you name it. Last May I was told there was nothing left for them to try. Our chances to have another child were gone and I needed to move on.
My heart ached. Literally.
I felt broken and cried over and over again. Hubby started talking about our future and started making non-baby plans. By the time the 4th of July rolled around I was accepting that we couldn't have more kids and started to embrace the plans we were making. It hurt but it needed to be done.
Then in August with no explanation we received this:
We were shocked. I took test after test and even with all the positives I still demanded a blood test out of disbelief. Luck was on our side and after years and years of trying little Sawyer will be here THIS MONTH!
