BECOMING Hope Morgan

Its been 8 months since I delivered my miracle baby and I feel like it happened yesterday. Going through IVF has been one of the hardest things I have EVER went though. The other hardest…… countless surgeries and several miscarriages.

In a rect Instagram post I spoke about feeling like I was ugly because of the weight I am currently. Let me elaborate. I was 110lbs my whole life. When I got married I was 100lbs. I have never been 155lbs which was my end pregnancy weight.. I am now 140lbs. When you are small your whole life gaining 30-35 lbs is new. Its different. Your clothes don’t fit the same. You have to learn how to love yourself including your body allllll over again. Yes, I housed a human being. Yes, I birthed a boy child BUT that doesn’t negate the newness that is now Hope Morgan the mother of Jeremiah Scott Morgan. I work in an industry and we also live in a world that makes you feel that thin is in and thats it. I am learning to love me while being healthy of course!

My IVF Journey

I’m sure your wondering where I’ve been. After I found out and announced I was pregnant via IVF I had a health scare. At 8 weeks pregnant I started bleeding. If you’ve been following my journey I had 2 Ectopic Pregnancies and a Myomectomy  all within a 5 year period. SO when I finally found out after 3 failed IUI‘s and 2 rounds of IVF I was pregnant seeing blood I panicked. I was immediately placed on bed rest for my entire pregnancy. The choice to blog was a thought, but I felt like I had nothing to talk about because at the time I was only blogging about fashion. Unfortunately, there was nothing fashionable about being on bed rest for 10 months. During those 10 months I focused on growing and strengthening what has become my miracle baby! On March 9, 2018 in the early hours of the morning Jeremiah Scott Morgan was born. From conception to birth , hearing him cry for the first time was worth it. What happened in between is the real story.

After attending a panel discussion entitled “Behind Her Smile” I decided its now time to tell the the entire story. There are soooo many woman going through this journey and have given up hope. In the climate we live in we need to come together and be our sisters’ keeper. I hope by sharing my story someone will have the courage to share theirs as well.

IVF is only half the story. What I’ve endured is not for the faint at heart, but for the strong.
