My husband and I got married last year, July 1 2011. We had actually started trying to conceive a couple months before. When I met him I had a 1yr old, and we were hoping to get pregnant before her 3rd bday. We were super excited when we saw the two lines the first month we tried! Unfortunately I miscarried a week before our wedding day, at 6wks. I wasn't to upset since it was so early, but right after I miscarried my hormones went wacky......and wackier. By Dec we were still unable to conceive, and after a bunch of testing I was diagnosed w/Premature Ovarian Failure, which had caused me to become pre-menopausal.....@ 30!!! It was so upsetting. Besides all the changes I was going through (night sweats, weight gain, decreased sex drive, uuugh, all of them!) I felt like a failure as a woman! I had completely stopped ovulating. I was still getting my period, oh yes, sometimes twice a month, but negative on every ovulation test I took. My Dr finally told me if I wanted to get pregnant we would have to go to an infertility specialist, and quick! My husband and I prayed about it, a lot. We decided that we felt we needed to trust in God; if Abraham and his wife could get pregnant at their old age, why wouldn't we be able to. So I started looking into natural fertility methods. I found a great website www.naturalfertilityshop.com, and started off w/the Fertility cleanse. My husband and I also changed our diets, eliminating soy and all extra hormones. We only ate hormone free dairy, meats, and even protein mix. And we both started taken Maca every day, and two spoonful’s of Royal Jelly - one in the morning, and one at night. 3 months later I was ovulating again!! The day I took the ovulation test my husband was returning from a Men's Retreat. He had barely walked in the door and I said - let's go, I'm ovulating! Lol :) We conceived that day, or night...haha. So 4 wks later I walked into my appointment w/the midwife and her and I really hit it off, and she said, you know, I don't usually give an ultrasound, but I'm going to go ahead and do it today. I laid down for the ultrasound after sharing my story of not being able to get pregnant, and my diagnosis, and she let out a giggle. I looked up at the screen, and as clear as day - TWO BABIES!! Unfortunately the midwife let me know she couldn't see me anymore and give me a big hug before I head out to set up pre-natal care elsewhere. Do twins run in my family? No. Do twins run in my husband’s family? No. Did we trust in God? Yes! My husband and I are now celebrating our one year wedding anniversary this Sunday, at 16 wks pregnant w/two healthy babies in me. What an amazing blessing and anniversary present!
