I’m 11 weeks and 2 days today, and I’m still in awe that we are pregnant!
My hubby and I first got pregnant when I was eighteen. At that time the thought of pregnancy wrecked our world, but our son was the biggest blessing we could’ve ever had. We married when my son was three and never once thought that trying to have another baby would be such a difficult task. We dealt with years and years of infertility. Heartache after heartache. Pregnancy tests were so disappointing, negative after negative. I got tested several times, but trying to convince my hubby to go in for testing was another task and argument.
It wasn’t supposed to be this way. It should not have to be this difficult. Why was it so easy the first time? And now that we’re accomplished and ready, nothing.
Fast forward to September ’18, we finally buckled down really started praying for our baby again. Long story short we sold our home and bought a new one within a month and a half’s time believing God was telling us to make room for a miracle. We were believing that we would be pregnant by the end of the year. Little did we know that it would be by the end of this year. By January ‘19 still no baby, but my hubby told me was finally ready to make an appointment and see a fertility specialist. My hubby’s sperm count came back low, not very low though. And because we had been waiting for more than 8 years the doctor explained we would be great candidates for IUI. We were so excited to finally have the ball rolling in the right direction.
We were scared about the financial aspect but knew that God would provide, and I was so consumed with school that I didn’t have time to worry about how soon our appointment would be.
By summer I followed up to see how our appointment was coming along and was told by my doctor that it is unusually difficult to get an appointment with this fertility specialist, but it should be within the next 4 weeks or so.
It was September ‘19 when I came across your product on social media. I’ve never been so grateful for nosey phones. You know, when the things your interested start popping up on your feed. To be honest I was intrigued by your story because it was much like our own. But also very skeptical, being a nurse, I wanted more info. I was looking for statistics and couldn’t find any. But the success stories were all there so hey I figured it would be worth the try. I showed my hubby your IG account and videos, and it was Marc’s “Trying to Conceive Sucks!” video that spoke to the both of us. We ordered the product that evening and received our kit in three days! I was shocked. I was expecting it in 7-10 days, but here it was just in time for my ovulation week. I honestly considered waiting a month so that we could “try” to start taking vitamins and prepare ourselves. Who was I kidding though, we were ready, and it was here. I had already started becoming familiar with my body since first watching the videos. I had never felt my cervix before, and it was so empowering knowing my body.
The process was so simple and took the stress out of trying, it was actually fun and exciting. I was trying to be hopeful, as hopeful as I could be after nine years of trying. But I was prepared to use the product for two months in a row before just waiting for our IUI consult.
October 7, 2019 I was six days late, but I’ve been a week late before. My boobs were sore, but that usually happened before my period so I didn’t know what to think. I finally worked up the courage to pee on that stick. You know the stick, the one that shattered my hopes so many times before. The stick that had turned up negative more times than I could count. BUT this time there were TWO lines. It never turned blue soooo fast. I was so shocked that I couldn’t even cry, which is so not me, lol. I cry all the time, happy, sad, excited. I was in shock!!! Could it really have worked the first try? YES IT DID! I took another test that afternoon and have been crying happy tears ever since.
I know this is a long email but I can’t thank God enough for the blessing he sent us. Our growing family is beyond grateful for your product and the ease of it all. Thank you for making is so easy and affordable for couples like us to conceive our miracle babies! Thank you for being the tool that led to our BFP. It has been 12 years since I’ve seen a positive pregnancy test, and you helped us get there.
