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.
