For a first grade assignment I wrote a book titled “When I grow up I want to be a mother.” It was my dream to be a mom from a very young age. I grew up with six siblings and when we got married my husband and I said we wanted at least 6 kids … maybe 8.
Never in a million years, even after all my studying in college, did I think I would have a miscarriage - let alone ten. It just never occurred to me that that could happen to me.
My name is Stacy Stevens and I’ve been dealing with second infertility for 3, almost 4 years.
We got pregnant so fast with our daughter Payton that infertility never even crossed my mind. I always knew I would love being a mom, I just didn’t realize I’d love it this much! So when Payton turned one in August 2016, we started trying again. I always knew I wanted my kids to be close in age, and I was always so jealous of others who had that. I honestly didn’t think we’d have any problems and I was excited!
