31 Jul Naturally Pregnant After Given 2% Chance
“My husband and I always knew that we would have trouble conceiving. By the time we got married, I was already two surgeries in from my endometriosis/PCOS and shortly after we got married, I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease. As soon as we got married we began fertility treatments and unfortunately, none took.
After a year and a half of non stop treatments, we finally decided that we would move onto IVF. The shots were grueling and the hormones and pain took a toll on my marriage but we kept holding onto the hope that this will give us a baby. Our first round failed but the second one took and we were ecstatic but the excitement was short lived; I miscarried at 5 weeks.
By then, my husband and I were burnt out and decided that it was time to take a break from the rollercoaster ride of infertility. I made efforts to lose weight and create a healthier lifestyle for myself. We made our marriage our priority and lived life, but I still kept praying to God that he would give us a miracle. Two months into our break, I began feeling nauseous and my breasts were tender. I didn’t want to admit it but I kept asking myself if God had heard my prayers. A few days later, I mustered the courage to take a test and it was positive! God heard my prayers and nine months later, our beautiful son, Neal was born.
Science couldn’t make me a baby but God did. Doctors told me that my chances of getting pregnant on my own were <2% but my God provided us with our beautiful baby!”
