I’ve always wanted to be amother. I’m an only childand very close to myparents. I’ve always idolizedmy mom and wanted tohave the same relationshipwith my own child.
Unfortunately, when I was 16 Iwas diagnosed withEndometriosis and a mild case ofPolycystic Ovarian Syndrome.Both could be treated, but wouldlower the chances of my abilityto someday become pregnant.And at 16, I was definitely notready to start trying for a baby!
I met Jeremy in January of 2011 and wequickly became joined at the hip. Hewas, and is, someone I see myself havinga life with.
And even though it was unplanned, andnot necessarily wanted this soon, wefound out in August that I’m pregnant.We’re happy about this news, and I’mecstatic to find my dream of motherhoodis only a few months away! I’m currently10 weeks with a healthy little person.
At 7 weeks!A dream come true
And what was my number one?To fall in love and start a family with theman of my dreams. Mission accomplished.
I thought my dreams ofbecoming a mother hadbeen destroyed. But nowthat I am pregnant, and it’swith someone I love verymuch, I can happily crossthe top two priorities offof my bucket list.
