Fertility News: Our journey continues

I have not shared too much on this blog about our infertility journey. (I have on here though). Honestly, it's because I wanted to have the good news (becoming pregnant) before I shared my heart and soul on this little blog. But God has pressed it on my heart to share our journey. To let others know that they are not alone in this (infertility) journey, especially secondary infertility. We look at our beautiful son and realize how blessed we are to have him. We were so oblivious to what a miracle it truly is to make a baby, and after all, it is God's will when and how it happens. I thought I would be spared of any more heartache after my twin sister was diagnosed with brain cancer (here is her journey), and God blessed her with a miraculous healing just 9 months later. We have been trying to conceive for 18 months now, and the 9 month mark has passed us by times 2. It has been one of the hardest challenges we have ever faced as a couple, but also has made us closer to our Lord Jesus Christ and to each other. To say each month that goes by is not hard, is an understatement. It is the most hearbreaking thing to face another failed cycle. I know God has greater plans that we can see, so we continue to trust in Him to carry us through the tough times.
I have endometriosis. I was diagnosed with Stage 1 earlier this year (March) when I had a laparoscopy done by my fertility specialist. It is because of my endo, that I have low AMH (ovarian reserve) at the tender (or I like to think!) of 32. So, my reason for my infertility. My specialist thinks I had it when I got pregnant with our son in 2008. So, we truly understand what a miracle he is! But add 4 years to it and is now an issue, a big one. But I am always reminded that "... All things are possible with God" Mark 10:27 Yes, they are. Until then, we will continue to trust He is guiding our path and opening the doors through this journey.
Thanks for reading!
