My husband and I got married in 2003, and in 2004 we decided to try to make our family a threesome instead of a twosome. I spent several months charting my temperature, checking my cervical mucus and looking for symptoms. All to no avail. Soon I added Ovulation Prediction Kits to this. Nothing beats being a reporter at a county council meeting and having to excuse yourself so you could pee on a stick to see if you were ovulating! But none of that worked. My OBGYN recommended several infertility tests to see what was wrong. But my husband and I had already decided that our chances of conceiving was in God’s hands, not our own. And we felt that treatments were playing God, so we passed on the tests. After that, we decided we would adopt. We threw our file and our money into the pool and waited for a match. Six month of waiting resulted in a positive Pregnancy Test the day we were sheduled to fly to Las Vegas for business! The digital test came back, “Positive.” Sure it was a fluke, I did another one – Positive. So two years after starting the TTC process, and six months of the adoption process, I was pregnant. God is good! My daughter was born 4 Dec 2006 at 37 weeks. Labor was induced because of her size. She was born at 8 pounds, 3 ounces. I gained 30 pounds while pregnant, and now bear several silver stretch marks on my stomach, arms and legs. She’s now a healthy 16 month old, with a head full of red hair and a personality to match! I am so thankful! I started visiting this site while I was PG, and finally feel it’s time to share my story. So, if you’re out there and struggling with infertility – put your faith in God – all things are possible through Him! The first picture is my daughter over Easter Holiday 2008. 2nd is me at 36 weeks pregnant. Yep, single baby. Now you know what I meant by induced for size! After that is me now – almost 17 months post-pardum.
