If you saw my most recent IG post then you probably already heard the news. I’m officially pregnant! It feels so surreal! This pregnancy is so special to me. It took a lot time, tears, prayers, a miscarriage, and sleepless nights wondering if it would ever happen for us.
Our infertility journey wasn’t an easy one. I don’t think it is for anyone going through it. Every month feels like an eternity. With little hope left, determination, a lot of prayers and trusting Gods timing it was just meant to be. I also had to put in my fair share of work to get there. Vitamins, eating healthier and even trying acupuncture before my IUI.
The moment I found out I was pregnant, I promised myself I wouldn’t get my hopes up… I had experienced a miscarriage 3 months prior. The nurse suggested not to take a test before my missed period, as the trigger shot might still be in my system. I took a test, and a very faint line appeared. I thought, maybe it’s still the trigger shot in my system. Yes, that’s exactly it. I took another test the day after, and still the faint line appeared. This time the line was lighter than before. I prepared myself for the worst. I took tests for a week straight, up until the day of my missed period to make sure my eyes weren’t playing tricks on me. Each one was getting darker.
The nurse called with the initial test results. She said, “Tiffany your HCG is 172, you are pregnant – congratulations! The second test a week later showed the numbers were 350! My numbers were doubling and trending in the right direction. This was finally happening for us. Our bundle of joy was on the way. Tony and I were ecstatic, our eyes filled with happy tears as we hugged each other so tight. Once we saw our little babies heartbeat we felt instant relief and joy, like we’ve never felt before. Just 3 months prior we were in the same clinic room, with our last baby who did not have a heartbeat. So this took a lot of courage.
If you are going through infertility. Just know God is right there next to you. He has never left your side. He is with us even in our darkest hours, when all seems lost. He will deliver you into the best version of you. You’ll grow as a person and it might hurt but he knows what we are capable of, and he’ll never give us anything we can’t handle. It’s perfectly ok to grieve and be sad. You’re not alone.
After the rain there’s a rainbow, after the storm there’s calm, after the night comes morning. After our rain, our rainbow came —he or she is set to arrive July 2019. This is our journey and I’m so happy to share this news with you all today! I will give updates from time to time, but the daily updates will most likely come with my growing bump.
