Against All Odds

I had incredible problems becoming pregnant.  Thirteen times I tried and had thirteen failed attempts. The fertility clinic said I only had one more chance to try in vitro fertilization.

I prayed hard and asked God if it was my destiny to have a baby, to please let it be now because it was my last opportunity.

When the time came for the procedure, testing showed that my hormones levels were not correct for in vitro fertilization. I was completely devastated.

The doctor then advised that I try artificial insemination because they had donor samples available. Since I was already at the clinic, I allowed them to do the procedure all the time thinking, “this will never work”. I had given up hope and was emotionally exhausted.

I went home knowing I would never have a child.

A couple weeks later, I was late…a few more days, still late.  I went to the store to get a home pregnancy test.  It was positive but, I refused to believe it. I made an appointment with the clinic for a blood test.

It was positive! I was pregnant!

I was told that I might not be able to carry the baby to term and had to use progesterone suppositories to help sustain my pregnancy.

She was full term.

Then they told me that I would not be able to breast feed because of my wacky hormones.   Again, they were wrong and I had no problems.

I do not have any idea of the personal loss of a child but, I know the struggles of trying to have one.

Destiny was an answer to my prayers.  When I had given up all hope, God stepped in and made what man thought impossible, possible. – L.C., North Carolina
