I was always interested in Mind Body connection Medicine and Nutrition. When I started to think seriously about having a baby I enrolled in an institute to study and graduated from their Integrative Nutrition Coaching Program. I wanted to learn how to have the healthiest pregnancy possible and forever provide a healthy way of living for my family.
What I did not know was this was the beginning of the most emotional and life changing journey I would ever experience!!!
After my first attempt, we successfully found out I was pregnant early on. I remember telling my husband when he came home from work and him saying" Well, that was easy!". Weeks went by and I was feeling healthy and so excited for my 12 week appointment so I could officially start spreading the goods news. I even told my husband he didn't have to come if he was having a busy day at work. Thank goodness he did because what was supposed to be the happiest day of my life turned painful and tearful, quickly. I found out that I had miscarried. It was nothing short of a sucker punch to my gut. We were not expecting this. We were devastated to say the least. This was just the beginning of what became a 3 year journey to get pregnant. Two more miscarriages , a ton of fertility medicine, and a dark time in our lives was soon to follow.
