Hello, my name is Aubrey. I am 28 and I have endometriosis and PCOS. Around 9 years ago, I started going to the ER for rupturing ovarian cysts. If you’ve ever felt that pain, you know it’s unbearable to the point that you start throwing up.
If you know me, you would know that I’ve always wanted to be a mom. Not just a mom, but a young mom. Get married young and then have babies right away. I checked off the “get married” box pretty quick. Right away, we decided we would start trying for a baby and if it happened, great! Time started to pass, months went by, and boxes of negative pregnancy tests started to pile up in the garbage. But when those months turned into a year, we started to wonder if it was something more.
Two IUI babies. One IVF baby. And one pandemic pregnancy during Covid with a set of spontaneous twins. Our infertility journey is filled with sadness and heartache, but also so much hope and joy. It is a story truly filled with miracles.
My story is still being written. I truly can’t even say at what point I am on in this journey, but I wanted to share my story, as unique as it is, in case that maybe, just maybe there is someone else out there who is looking for hope too.
