Let me reintroduce myself. My name is Hope Morgan …..Shannel is my middle name. I’ve been married for 7 years to my wonderful, amazing and yes sometimes annoying husband Nick. July 17th will be our 8th wedding anniversary! We are a lot alike and yet a lot different. My favorite color is pink, his is blue and orange. He loves the Knicks, I love fashion. He’s studying for his Doctorate in Education…..I’m still trying to figure out what to cook for dinner tonight. lol We love each other dearly and we have no children…..yet.
When you first get married you say your “I Do’s” and then the question many of us dread is asked….. when are you going to start having children? “I don’t know what sheets to put on the bed, now you want me to produce life “. Again we’ve been married for 7 years. 3 years into our marriage we got pregnant. Rewind. My parents were told they couldn’t have children. They now have me Hope, Josh and Faith. Now back to the present. We were ecstatic when we found out the news. I panicked, my husband reassured me everything was going to be ok. 6 weeks later I experienced what is called an ectopic pregnancy. I’ve never had surgery before. This required an extensive amount. I cried for months. Bed rest, no exercise. NO HIGH HEELS!!! I survived. 6 months later it happened again. We found out I was pregnant. 6 weeks later another ectopic pregnancy. I cried for months. No baby showers, I couldn’t be around babies. I got stronger. I survived. Many women especially in the African American community have fibroids. I assumed this was the cause of both loss so I acted fast. This would be my 3rd surgery in less than 3 years. It was a success, but I haven’t gotten pregnant since. We’ve been trying for 5 years. #5years
Ever heard of IVF ? Yes, I was TOTALLY against it. After SEVERAL talks with my husband and doing my own research I agreed to the process. THIS IS NOT AN EASY PROCESS. It involves a lot of medicine and a lot of home injections. A lot of tears, but a lot of faith.
