A year ago today

What a difference a year makes.  

At this time one year ago we were on our way to the hospital for a second surgery to resect my uterine septum.  When I found out that I needed another surgery I was devastated to say the least.

When Brandon and I began seeking help from the Reproductive Endocrinologist, we were expecting to have difficulties due to Brandon's past history with testicular cancer.  We were unprepared to learn that I was carrying part of the "infertility burden" as well.  At the first HSG in June 2011, we had no idea what the radiology tech was even talking about when she said septate uterus.

*Looking back, it still amazes me at what all happened for us to be pregnant today.  God never left our side.*

Throughout our infertility journey, I do have to say that Brandon and I continued to remain hopeful that we would be parents.  Instead of waiting to schedule the second surgery, we pressed forward and booked the first available surgery appointment.  I knew that there would be recovery time to give me the "break" that my body and mind needed.  Dr. Allemand knew that I was severely upset that my first surgery with a different RE had not corrected our issues, so he provided me with visual proof that my septum was removed.

This picture is beautiful to me; it's my womb prepped to carry a child.
Today I cannot help but be reminded of what we endured to get here, but I am overfilled with joy that my uterus is now carrying my precious daughter.  I can only hope and pray that Elliana never has difficulty starting her family when the time comes, but I will trust God that He is in control.

Here are two of my older posts from both of my surgery days.  It seems surreal to look back and read my words from those days.

  1. There is joy to be found even when we think there is only misery. We just have to look for the happiness.
