"For this child I prayed; and the LORD hath given me my petition which I asked of him"
1 Samuel 1:27
I won't go into all of the details here, but I would like to share some. Wesley and I have tried to conceive for a year. After a few months, my regular doctor sent me to a fertility specialist. Before I began the medication he prescribed, we conceived on our own. On February 23rd, we had our first positive pregnancy test. On February 28th, we lost our baby. It was one of the most difficult things I have experienced, but I know that it was an opportunity for us to grow our faith and strengthen our marriage.
In April 2010, I began taking Femara (letrazole) to make my body function correctly. After an adjustment in dosage and three cycles, we conceived this sweet baby in my belly right now!
During this process, I have felt many things. One thought that I often had was that this is something that few discuss but many (at least more than you know about!) experience. I know that there are many different reasons for that (we kept this part of our life private while we were going through it), and I completely understand. My reason for sharing this now is because I want to let others know they are not alone. Please feel free to email me or talk with me if you are going through a similar situation.
