Well, I am doing something I haven't really done before, and that is sharing a pretty personal story on our blog. It is not that I am against it at all, but just have never felt the need or had a reason to do so. Now I do. I have to share this story in full detail so that you can understand the gravity of the situation and the true wonder of God in it. So here goes...
When this story begins was a few months back and at that point in time we had been actively trying to conceive, without success. Thankfully we are in the military, with military health insurance, and because of that do not have to wait a full year of not being able to get pregnant prior to start any testing to see if there is a problem with either of us that may or may not be fixable. Either way, we wanted to know, so that we would at least know if we can have children. Anyhow, about 5 months into doctor's visits, I had a test done that poured dye in my uterus to ensure that it is shaped normally, has no cysts, or anything else wrong that would prevent having a baby. The day of the test, as I was talking to the doctor beforehand he said that it is always a possibility that my fallopian tubes are not open all of the way to the ends, and if so we will see that and possibly fix that with this test (by flushing them out). He also stated afterward that we would probably not see that, as it is unlikely, but you never know. Right after this, as I was waiting for the test to be preformed, I prayed. I prayed a quick, but heartfelt prayer in a breath (as I was not able to do otherwise), just asking God that if there was a problem to fix it right there and right then. I longed to be a mother, and had been struggling with this issue of not being able to become pregnant. Well, as the test went on, the doctor surprisingly stated that my fallopian tubes were NOT clear all the way to the ends! Whoa, can we fix it, I wanted to know. He said he would try to flush them out, and he did! He did not say that it is a recurring problem or anything to worry about, but that some women just have that happen. Needless to say after that appointment, I was recharged, thankful, and felt that we had a fresh start, and two months later, right before Christmas I found out that I am pregnant!! So now, I am about 10 weeks pregnant, and we are happy as clams about it. We are so thankful and grateful to God. I am so amazed and thankful that I have a Savior who would hear my small, quick prayer, and answer it, granting us the desire of our hearts. Praise the Lord!
