Welcome


On May 20, 2006 I married my best friend! He is my rock and my everything!! We have 3 sweet (and spoiled) 'four legged' fur-children...Peanut, Ginger and Sasha!

As of right now we don't have any children, BUT boy are we trying! I had our life planed out…new house, honey moon life for a couple years, then plan for kids….however, God had other plans in store for us. I went in for a regular annual and it came back abnormal; I went in for biopsies and scrapings and all the other ‘not so fun’ stuff, I was diagnosed with severe dysplasia (border line cancer of my cervix). My Dr at the time told us if we wanted children we better start trying as it doesn’t look promising.

Being parents is something Zach and I dreamed of, something that we talked about before we got married. Something we never questioned, nor ever thought we would have a hard time with.

While praying desperately for strength and patience I went to many Dr’s appts and underwent freezing’s, several scrapings, biopsies, and even experimental creams…it wasn’t until a good 6 months later I was thankfully ‘cured’ of my dysplasia. However now we faced the dreaded world of infertility.

About a year after that I went to another Dr. for a 2nd opinion and with the HSG, we discovered my tubes were blocked, in December of 07’ I had LAP surgery done to correct my tubes. My Dr. removed a little endo during my surgery and told me I had PCOS. Zach was also diagnosed with a low % of normal sperm….I’ve undergone, many months (off and on of course) of Clomid, Femera, Metformin, Estrogen and Progesterone with follicle scans, I’ve had a total of 3 IUI’s one being with Gonal F injections.

I don’t know God’s plan for us, I don’t know which road we will go down…but I do know he has our best interest in heart and is right by our side. I wish we could run up the staircase, however God ask we take one step at a time and let him guide us up the rest...and thats what were doing.

This blog is about our life, our journey through infertility, and hopefully one day it will become our journey through pregnancy.

You can keep up with the recent updates through the time line on my sidebar.

Wow...what a story. I have stopped by your blog before, but I don't think I had ever read your story.

I am PRAYING that God moves mountains in your life!! I am inspired by your attitude. One of the things I remember thinking when I finally found out we were pregnant was "Lord, let they journey not be in vain". I didn't want 3 years of work he had done in me to be undone in my heart simply because I had finally gotten pregnant. I wanted to remain the person He had changed me into. It's quite a ride, but oh He is so good to us!!!

May God bless you and your husband as you continue to walk this road, and please know I promise to life you up before Him.

Blessings,
kendra

How the heck do you afford all of this? My insurance doesn't cover any of it - and I'm just now headed for an HSG. We have a long financial road ahead of us and I'm just not sure how we are going to handle it.

Well, we have a few things in common. First, our anniversary and then the infertility. I'm sorry you have to go through this , but I commend you for helping to raise awareness!

Oh my gosh! You have gone through so much! I think women (myself included) take healthy reproductive organs and healthy cycles for granted. Even though I'm also struggling with infertility, I have not gone through nearly as much as you. My husband and I are coming on 2 years of infertility and we have a daughter. Secondary infertility is a hard concept to grasp. We are a proven fertile couple, but God has other plans for us this time around. And you are so right...even though you and your husband had plans to begin a family, God has other plans...bigger and better plans.

I am now following your blog. I look forward to reading more! If you wish, check out my blog @ www.thejohnsonsjourney.com. :)
