Motherly and Brotherly Love!

Back in April my Mom decided last minute to come and visit and brought with her a Lil brother Parker!!! It was so fun at the airport when he surprised me I started crying and jumping up and down and Parker tried to push me away and just said "Stop, you're embarrassing me." We had a great time with them here. 

We went shopping and Parker bought Clint this Jacket for his B-Day Present..Guess How Much? Clint just insisted on trying it on shirtless. 
Pedi's with the girls!!! Parker kept repeating that he liked Women, just wanted to make that clear to everyone. The truth is who wouldn't want a Pedicure?! They are so wonderful!
 Titanic exhibit in Atlanta. We couldn't take pictures of the exhibit but it was pretty incredible how many items made it out of that tragedy.
My mom bought Clint this briefcase and was embarrassed to be hugged by this shirtless man...haha I love this guy! 

 Beautiful Sunday walk with the family. So serene. So many trees. So beautiful!

 Last, enjoyed a day in the sun by the pool! We live the good life! I am so grateful for family!

Movie Recommendation

Love this movie! If you haven't seen it yet find the time too. Unfortunately, it is only in select theaters. It is funny, charming, dramatic, quirky, emotional...everything a good movie needs:)

Needle Point

For over a month now I have been sticking myself with this needle in my stomach and legs, in order to receive the blood thinner I need to, hopefully, have a baby, someday. I gotta admit I thought it would get easier with time but it really doesn't. It still hurts, I still get anxious before and as I am giving myself a shot and I just hate it. BUT if the result of this is an adorable baby then it will all be worth it! Bring on the Shots!

And The Results Are In....Drum Roll Please

Starting in a couple of weeks I have to begin giving myself shots of blood thinner in my stomach or leg. This just seems appropriate since even when a Doctor is sticking a needle in me I need Clint there to hold my hand. Well, at least by doing the shot at home Clint will always be there to hold my hand:) So, that is a wrap on my fertility issues. Time to move on to bigger and better things.....GIRLS CAMP! 

I think there should be a two week waiting period on callings at Church because I had no idea what I was getting into and how much work it really was. Thank you Mom for being a GREAT Young Women's President and showing me a great example. Now, if you could just come BACK to Georgia and help me figure it out, I would appreciate it.

Diagnosis Part 2

Just a quick update, the blood clotting disorder is actually the best scenario. It has the easiest solution and it means that next time we get pregnant, since I will be on blood thinners, I should not have another miscarriage. With the other options of what could have been wrong with me, it meant surgery in some cases. So, I am happy with this diagnosis, just not happy with how we came to discover it.

A new development this morning another test came back, it was a Karyotyping test and it came back Saying everything was normal. Which is great!! That means Clint and my Chromosomes are normal so we have great chances of having a healthy baby with normal development. I am just so eager for it to be Friday already so I can get more details about our situation. Thanks for all the support and love!

This week I had a pretty bad emotional break down. I just felt dead inside and well it was bad. Bad enough that my Mom decided she needed to come out and cheer Clint and I up. So, I went to the airport to pick her up and as I saw her coming off that escalator I just fell apart and started crying. I was hugging her and feeling relieved to haver her here when someone grabbed me from behind and it was Parker!!! Now that cry turned into a loud, "make a scene," SOB!!! My baby brother out here to be with Clint and I! He was so embarrassed by the scene I was making he kept saying, "Kinsey Stop it." Pretty fabulous Family we got! A part of that family is my Grandpa Lloyd who I am so grateful for his help with this situation too! I love you all! And no worries, pictures will be posted.

Diagnosis Part 1

Dear Family and Friends,

Yesterday the doctor called and gave me my diagnosis. Drum Roll please.....I have not 1, not 2 but 3 different BLOOD CLOT disorders. I have always said go big or go home. 1 of these disorders makes it difficult to get pregnant and the other 2 blood clot disorders cause miscarriages. Crazy, huh. So, next week we go back to the Doctor to talk it over and see where we go from here. From how I understand it I need to take a certain blood thinner when I want to try and get pregnant and then when I get pregnant I need to take some other drugs throughout most of my pregnancy. That is what I know for now. I will let you know more details as I get them next week.

First Visit

Yesterday Clint and I went to our first visit with a Fertility Specialist. As we arrived at the office I was pretty anxious about the appointment and very emotional about the whole reason we have to be here. It was a bitter sweet moment with the relief that we would get help with having a child but with the grief of losing three babies already.

As we approached the receptionist she was the friendliest and cheeriest lady I think I have ever met. During out conversation we discovered a connection with her son (who is a convert to our church, the LDS church) and his daughter-in-law. Small world. From the get go we felt welcomed and important. We went to sit in the waiting room but before we even got in a chair we were called back. We spent 15 minutes with a nurse and about 15-20 with the Doctor. Everyone just listened and answered all of our questions and gave us all of their attention. We both appreciated how we were treated as in the past we have been treated poorly and as inconveniencing our Doctors with wanting help.

Well, now we have gotten help and our Fertility Doctor ordered every test that there possibly is to discover what is  causing these multiple miscarriages. We have no news yet but hopefully within the month we will start to get answers to the plethora of tests. Like I have said before the hardest part with having any kind of fertility issues is the constant WAITING...but we feel hopeful.

Another Sad Day In The Ward/Davis Family

Clint and I have had a very emotional year. We have had a lot of adventures and fond amazing memories but we have also had some tragedies. A year ago we decided we wanted to start a family. If you have read my log in the past you would know that I have had two miscarriages already and it was really hard for me to come to terms with that and to be myself again. Since we have moved to Georgia I have made some real progress. But of course right when things seem to be going well tragedy has to hit again. And it did.

I found out I was pregnant again, and this time I had a hormone supplement to take to help prevent a miscarriage again. Unfortunately, on April 20th, there was nothing I could do. I lost another baby. Clint and I were incredibly happy and felt so blessed to be expecting again. We tried to be realistic and not get our hopes up but who were we kidding. We started planning everything, all over again, for a third time. 

We went to the Doctor and found out our baby was behind in development. As soon as she said those words I knew what they meant. But I tried to stay positive because we were going to FL for the weekend to celebrate Clint's birthday. Everything was going well until it all happened. We spent the day crying, watching movies, playing Yahtzee, anything to try and distract us from what was real and what was happening. 

I have read many blog about other women who have had several miscarriages and I want to write about mine too in case someone who is struggling comes upon it. It is the hardest thing we have ever been through. It is painful and we are both just so heart broken. And just mad. But it is ok to feel all of those emotions. For me though the hardest part is having to feel these emotions, and go through the grieving process, multiple times. Just when I get back up I get knocked back down. I try to be strong but it's overrated. 

So, the next step in our situation is to see a fertility specialist. You think we could just get this started and it would all be easy to set up but it never is. I have to wait for my OBGYN to do tests, to approve it, to refer me, to let my insurance know...etc... I just WANT to see a specialist but I have to wait on others to make it happen and it is not on the top of their list by any means. 

Why does it have to be so hard to have a baby? Why, when you can't have a baby, does it have to be so hard to get into a specialist who can, hopefully, give you answers? There is so much waiting and it kills me. I have never been a patient person. For anyone who may be reading this and feeling a little lost too, just know that as hard as the waiting has been and continues to be for Clint and I we still try to look forward to the moment we have a baby. And we know that baby will be more loved than any other baby in the world! It will be worth least that is what I need to keep telling myself to get through the day.
