I was 22 when I got pregnet with my lil boy, which i love more then anything. It was a great pregnancy labour was hard, but thats why they call it labour. Other then that everything was fine. I got on the pill for the first year of his life.
The day he turned 1 i wanted to try and give him a lil brother or sister. Well i thought it would be so eazy , just get off the pill and that was it. Well found out it wasn't so eazy. month after month and nothing it was heartbreaking. went to the gyno and ran all the tests and everything was normal .
Its been 2 years now and nothing i'm really depressed and starting to think my lil man will grow up an only child.
no gonna happen for usMy story is unlike most that i've read. Me and my husband have been trying for 11 years, we have tried lots fertility drugs but have broken the bank on them with no results. We cant afford ivf or adoption and insurance wont cover it. We have realized its not gonna happen for us. I feel so bad for him because he is perfectly healthy and the problem is my hormones. I sometimes wish he didn't love me so he could love someone who could give him a family, we all know 2 doesn't make one. I am bitter with myself inside but, never with others just at myself. I am very happy in my marriage and wouldn't trade it for the world its just sad such a wonderful relationship like ours would be the most perfect to have a baby in. I love children and am blessed to have lots and lots of nieces and nephews.
i've heard so many ecouraging stories and for those of you who can keep trying, don't give up!! just cause it doesn"t work out for everyone doesn"t mean it won't for you!
Dream come trueWhen I was 16, I went on the pill due to very heavy and painful periods. I needed to switch pills about 7 times as one stopped my period, one made me have it all the time, one made me break out, and so on and so forth. In my late teens, I decided to go off the pill. It took 2 years for my period to come back and then, it was only once that year. Twice the next. Occasionally it would come regularly for a couple of months and then stop. Noone could tell me why and noone would blame the pill although my periods were normal before. As a teen and into my early 20's I thought that no period was a blessing, until my husband and I decided to start a family. I had to go back on the pill for a while to see if we could kick start my system and to also flush out my uterus as the lining was building up and causing scar tissue. Long story short, we tried for 7 years. I had tried medication after medication trying to ovulate to no avail. We decided to try Provera to start a period and hopefully ovulate and Clomid. After our first treatment, we were pregnant. My son is now 3 months old and we couldn't be happier. Unfortunately my pregnancy was a nightmare but that is for another time.
HopingMy husband and I have been married for the past nine months and decided that we wanted to start out family immediately. My biggest dream in life has been to become a mother. Since I had become easily pregnant ten years prior, I assumed that we would conceive quickly. I was soon proven wrong. I feel as though I have purchased every type of ovulation predictor kit, charted every possible sign of ovulation and early pregnancy, and read every book printed about the subject. After giving conception the good old "college try" I consulted my OBGYN. She ordered a ton of bloodwork which indicated that I don't ovulate. She suggested that I start Clomid therapy. I must admit that I was (and still am) very nervous about taking hormones. Firstly, I feel like I am less of a woman because I can't conceive naturally. It almost makes me wonder if God doesn't feel that I would make a good mother. I started Clomid on July 1, 2006 and had an ultra sound on day 12 of my cycle. Happily, the sonogram indicated that I had produced 5 good eggs. I couldn't be happier. Finally, I was convinced that we were well on our way to becoming parents. As ordered, I began testing my ovulation daily and got a positive result on day 15. Needless to say, my poor husband has been absolutely exhausted from "reporting to baby duty" every possible chance we get. I guess I am just so afraid to miss my ovulation. I have yet to miss my period but the anticipation is killing me. I took a pregnancy test four days ago (before missing my period) and the test came back negative. I think I cried for the rest of the day. I don't feel pregnant but am still hoping against hope that I might be. If not, I will begin cyle two of Clomid therapy. If for nothing else, this process has taught me how precious human life is, and how much I will treasure the opportunity to have a baby of my own. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
God's Word on ChildrenTo all of you trying to conceive, I want to share God's Word with you...God has promised that neither male or female of His people would be barren. He's promised to bless the fruit of your body and make you plenteous in the fruit of your body. He's promised that His people would not suffer miscarrriages or infertility and He has promised to bless those who belong to Christ as he blessed Abraham ( He gave Abraham and his wife Sarah a child when they were past the years of child barring. This is just one of the ways that He blessed Abraham). God is no respecter of person, what He does for one person He'll do for another. However, God's blessings are not automatic..you have to stand on His promises with unwavering faith. Satan will try to come against God's Word, but resist him and he has to flee from you...he has to release you.
I want to encourage you all to stand on God's word when Satan tries to come you and your fertility. Persevere knowing that his word never fails. Have faith in God's Word and keep believing the Word. Faith in God's Word gets Him to move on your behalf. Keep your expectancy up!! Take each test expecting it to be positive!
Always remember that children are God's will. They are an inheritance from the Lord.
Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.
