About Her

I never realized how hard an about me page would be. I guess I should start with the basics. I am a 28 year old woman dealing with infertility. I have no diagnosis that tells me why as of now. We have been trying to conceive for over two years now. I have been married to an amazing man for the last 5 1/2 years. This journey has been just as hard for him as it is for me, yet his support and patience never end.
     Next I should explain the things on the physical side. When I was young I had very heavy periods and extreme menstrual cramps. This caused me to be placed on birth control at around 14. I went through a few different ones before one was found that relieved the symptoms. I took a few breaks from being on birth control, always going back on it until I was 25. At 25 my husband and I decided it was time to consider having children. My cycle varies from 29 to 31 days each month. The ovulation predictor kits say I ovulate on a regular basis. I have had an Hysterosalpingogram (hsg) with normal results. I have had ultrasounds, the only abnormality shown being a single cyst on my left ovary. So, for now, I am left childless with no clue why. My husband checks out fine so we are diagnosed with unexplained infertility.
     A little more about my history and I think this about me page will be complete. I grew up with both my mom and dad and one sister. We lived on a farm, raised cattle, and grew a garden. I had land to ride bikes, wander through the woods, and play in a stream any time I wanted. It was a wonderful way to grow up. My husband and I met in first grade. I believed he had cooties for many years. Through high school we remained friends but never dated. I went to his after prom party, he came to my graduation party. A couple of years into college he and I started dating. When he came home from the military, we got married. He has been my rock, my strength, and my spiritual leader through fun, amazing, and a few difficult times.
     We are a christian couple and know that the Lord has created this path for us for a reason. We find our peace, strength, and comfort in Him. I believe in being real in my relationship with God. I find comfort in His unfailing Word. This does not mean that I don't question the reasons, get angry, or feel very hurt at my denial of children.I am all too human. My hope is that this blog will bless others on this journey, educate friends and family, and maybe even make you laugh. God bless each person who joins us on this journey.
