(This is a Success Story from Michele in New Mexico)
My story starts back in 2002 when I got pregnant for the first time. I was active duty in the Army and with that job came alot of stress, physically and mentally.
I was to the point of being excited, and at week 8+ I ended up having a miscarriage. I blamed GOD, which in time I knew wasn’t his fault, but there are reasons things happen.
Well, in 2008, I was not in the military anymore and I got pregnant again. Things were going well, and at week 10+ I ended up having my second miscarriage and had to have a D&C.
This one was really tough, because my husband had been in Iraq for two weeks already. Those are the difficulties of trying to have a baby.
Now here comes the most exciting part. After my husband came back from Iraq after the second miscarriage, which was a year later, we got pregnant August 2, 2009, and on May 13, 2010 had the most beautiful little girl I have ever laid my eyes on. She is the best blessing that GOD could have ever given to me and my husband.
I told my doctor that I did not want to get on birth control because we were going to try and have another one ASAP, but once again my husband was sent to Iraq, and when he came home on R&R to see us for Christmas and New Year’s, January 2, 2011, we conceived and are now 15 weeks pregnant.
We are due September 29th, but will have another C-Section, so it will be a week earlier than our due date. I feel so blessed to have this happen to us and can’t wait to meet our new little one.
The thing going against me to have another one so soon was that I’m not getting any younger, I will be 34 when the new baby is born and we all know the older we get the harder it is.
But, let me tell you ladies, I was told that I needed to take progesterone pills to help me basically get through the first trimester and to get pregnant, and I believe that’s what helped with our daughter.
All I can say is keep trying and I PROMISE your dream of becoming a mommy will come true, and it’s the best thing ever. My little girl is now walking at 10 1/2 months and is the sweetest thing you could lay your eyes on.
GOOD LUCK to everybody out there that thinks they aren’t ever going to have an Angel, because in due time it will happen.
