Holding onto hope

My husband and I have been trying to get pregnant (basically since we got married) in 2005. We finally went to the doctor in April 2008 to get some "professional" help and the wonderful use of prescription clomid and we had success in our first cycle.

Our son Bradyn James was born January 28, 2009 at 11:56pm. He lived only a few hours and then God took him home as his little angel. Bradyn wasn't able to breathe due to a lung malformation that was unseen in ultrasounds and X-rays ...

Our son Bradyn James was born January 28, 2009 at 11:56pm. He lived only a few hours and then God took him home as his little angel. Bradyn wasn't able to breathe due to a lung malformation that was unseen in ultrasounds and X-rays at the hospital. He seemed fine when he was born and placed on my chest and he even cried for the first minute just like nothing was wrong. It wasn't until about 30 seconds later that the nurses suddenly rushed him out of our room. We didn't get a chance to hold our son after that until he had already passed away.
My husband and I are truly heartbroken.
Never in our wildest thoughts did we ever think that we would leave that hospital with a memory box instead of our son.

Gods love and comfort have helped hold us together through this very painful time and we are so thankful for our family and friends and our church for all of the support they have given us.
Peter and I are starting to try again for another pregnancy and are giving it up to God to have a healthy baby.

pre-pregnancy weight: 157 lbs
pregnancy top weight: 210 lbs

May 2009: We have been given the green-light to try fertility this month and we are on the same prescriptions as before. We were told that it's a 25% chance of success every month but we are praying and trusting in God for his guidance in our future. He has a plan for us and we know we are in his hands.

Member Since: 1/5/2006

SparkPoints: 22,596

Fitness Minutes: 11,598

My Goals:
To get my body healthy again so I can prepare myself for a healthy pregnancy should we be lucky enough to get another opportunity to have a baby.


Pre-Pregnancy: 157 lbs
Top pregnacy: 210 lbs


My Program:
I am eating approximately 1250-1550 calories/day.

Plan is to: Exercise EVERY day or every other day for 20-40 mins using 3,5,8 &10lb weights.

I will be tracking calories on the nutrition/fitness trackers & making sure to meet my water consumption goals... aiming for 12+ glasses a day. It is important to get enough water, remembering that when you are feeling hungry - you may just be thirsty!

I will also stick to a weekly challenge with myself or with my montly challenge team.

Personal Information:
I am 30 years old, married, and mother of 2 girls...and one on the way! I work full time as well as my husband and so our days are filled with driving, work, preparing dinner and doing homework with the girls.

I have two labs- one yellow and one ivory, three cats, two hamsters and two fish..all living in our house. So, with the four (soon to be 5) of us humans- we are crazy full!

My birthday is April 9th & I am an aries.

I live in Minnesota- the land of eternal winter (or at least it feels like that!)

Other Information:
I like to laugh, smile, give hugs ( I am very affectionate..you know, the kind that holds hands or arms and sits very close to hubby) and most importantly- I love to be around my family. They are my world.

I think I see myself as a very positive person, and it takes a lot to get me down. I truly believe that "looking on the sunny side" is the best way to live, and there always has to be a silver-lining to even the darkest of clouds. :)

WANNA SHARE THIS WITH YOU!

www.youtube.com/watch?v=FyZfuT8FRBc

PLEASE when you watch this watch it with an open mind of acceptance and absorb the information! This can literally be a life changing life saving experience for you!
I 'm having people say I can't do this because of this health issue. I can't eat this way because of this health issue!

YES YOU/WE CAN! THIS LIFESTYLE IS FOR EVERYONE! EVERYONE CAN DO THIS. DO IT AND YOU CAN AND WILL REVERSE/END THOSE CHRONIC ILLNESSES AND DISEASES AND STOP THEM IN THERE TRACKS FROM ADVANCING AND EVEN PREVENT THEM IN THE FUTURE AS YOU GROW OLDER.
YOU'RE NOT TOO SICK! AND YOU'RE CERTAINLY NEVER TOO OLD!

JUST DO IT! YOU'RE ALIVE YOU'RE LIVING DON'T YOU WANT A HIGHER CHANCE, A 90% HIGHER CHANCE TO LIVE OUT A BETTER, THE BEST, HEALTHIEST LIFE FOR YOURSELVES, FOR YOUR FAMILIES!
OVERRIDE THAT THINKING OF SKEPTICISM, DOUBT, THAT FEAR OF CHANGE!
emoticon YOU HAVE THE EMPOWERMENT!
YOUR LIFE DEPENDS ON IT!

Like so many others already, I am living proof of this! I have been eating Nutritarian for almost a year now and have reversed my health issues and lost 95 pounds so far! If anyone ever thinks I would revert back to my former way of life and lose that THEY ARE INSANE! Why would I want to go back on death row!

Hi Jenny, I just started back to Sparkpeople and thought I'd see if you were back too. I have often thought of you and prayed for you and your husband. No one can truly understand what you have gone through with the passing of your little boy, and I know you think of him daily. God bless you and hope to see you back on the boards someday. Denice
