The Journey from Fertile to Infertile…The Beginning

So, this will be my FIRST blog EVER!  Looking forward to learning about the world of blogging along the way.  I feel it’s important that you get to know my mommy journey, my battle with infertility and how I ended up where I am today…6 kids later!

Well, here is the beginning, my first mommy chapter, thanks for joining me!

The beginning of my mommyhood started almost 2 decades ago.  I still can’t believe Alexa (my oldest) is going to be 20 years old in January.  My youngest girls (the triplets) are only 9 months old.  It’s crazy when you think about it in those terms.  But once you see the in-between, everything that took place to bring me to where I am today, it will make perfect sense.  I would not trade these last 20 years for anything…the good, the bad and even the ugly!  It all helped shape the person and the mother I am today.

Lets go on my journey together, for me it will be going down memory lane.  I bet there are so many blessings along the way that I might of missed or maybe now I can appreciate them so much more.  For you, hopefully you can take something away to help along your journey as a mom.  Or maybe it’ll help to know that you are not alone in what you are going through or what you have been through…

Here we go…I was 20 years old, a manager at a retail store.  Making pretty good money for my age at that time.  I decided I wanted to move across the country to California.  My sister lived out there so it felt a little less scary.  I called my boss and to my surprise there was an opening in Daly City!  I had to be out there in 2 months, it was perfect timing.  So I said my good-byes and I went.

To make a long story short, while I lived in California I met Alexa’s dad.  Nine months later, I was pregnant.  But I didn’t know it.  Well, let’s speak truth here, I was in denial.  Blamed it on the stress from work for about 2 1/2 months!  You see, I had gotten promoted and moved an hour away from Alexa’s dad, so we ended things.

Finally, I had to know, my high paced stressful life excuse was not cutting it anymore.  I remember going out with my friend Laura and on the way home that night, I wanted to stop at a supermarket.  I stood there, before going in and said to Laura, “It’s the moment of truth, I need to know, I am going to buy a test.  I will call you as I wait for the results.”  That was my plan.

I got home ran in the bathroom, ripped the wrapper off and peed on that stick that was about to change my life forever!  I looked down at my phone as I dialed Laura.  When I looked up…POW there is was, the brightest two lines ever!  There was no doubt, it wasn’t a faded second line, it was bright and bold.  I was definitely prego!  By the time Laura answered I moved from a place of shock to a place of acceptance.  I feel like I knew even before I knew, if you know what I mean.  Joy just flooded in, believe it or not I did not panic.  I knew exactly what I was going to do.  I broke the news to Laura and she said, “Congrats!”.  She knew me, she knew that I would see this as a blessing, that there would be no doubt in my mind.  As I said good-bye to her, I said, “Better get some rest, have to rest for two now.”

That night something changed inside of me, it was like a switch was turned on.  I became a mom.  It was an immediate connection with my baby.  This little life that was growing inside of me.  I knew at that moment, I was born for this… I was born to be a mommy!
