Here is a #FBF!!! It wasn't too long ago, but I hadn't posted it, so now is a great time to do so. Here's the story:
Gerald and I have been together for 10+ years. We traveled the world when we were in the Merchant Marines and finally came home to start our lives. We were trying to get pregnant since 2014 but for some reason, it never happened. I tried everything!
Just this year, in April, we went to see a fertility doctor. She ran all the tests and gave us some "uneasy" news. Everything was PERFECTLY fine with both of us, but for some reason, we just couldn't get pregnant. She gave us 2 months to try and get pregnant on our own. If it didn't happen, we would call her to go through our first treatment.
I did a lot of things differently. I lost weight. I watched what I ate. I went from 6 jobs to 2. And I greatly reduced my stress levels.
On Tuesday, May 30th, I was scheduled to take a pregnancy test, so I did. I sat there and peed on the stick, then set it down on the counter, and continued to empty my bladder. When I looked over at the pregnancy test, my eyes shot wide open! It was positive! I couldn't contain myself! I wiped, didn't even bother to wash my hands (eeeow), and ran to my mom and showed her. We cried. And then my mom texted Gerald (ugh). Gerald texted me and asked me if it was true and I confirmed it. I immediately started calling all my closest friends and family.
My brother wasn't checking his messages so I called him and told him to check. I sent him THIS picture! He called me back and was hysterically excited! "Are you serious?! I'm gonna be an Uncle?!" I couldn't stop crying.
I share this story to give hope to those that have been trying for awhile. I am 38 years old and people were starting to believe it just wouldn't happen for me. But, don't give up. Try everything. And most importantly, have faith that God wants you to be happy. He has granted me my dream. I am going to have my dream man's baby.
