Our almost 5 year journey to get our little Theo was a WILD ride, to say the least. The road was filled with MANY twists and turns, forks in the road, detours, and exits closed for construction.
You grow up, meet someone, fall in love, get married and have children! That is what they tell you as a little kid of how your life should progress, but what do you do when you grow up and that plan doesn’t happen? When that last part doesn’t become reality?
My story started out when I was 16 years old. I was having intense menstrual cycles and missing school all the time because of the pain and it was taking a toll. My mom took me to her Gynecologist, and he wanted to do a surgery to see if I had Endometriosis since I had all the symptoms.
A month before our wedding, I got off birth control ready to start trying for a baby right away. I was on the pill for about 12 years, and never had reasons to believe I would struggle getting pregnant. I figured, like so many friends and family around me, it'd happen pretty quickly.
