I am very happy for you! Faith is so important in many different areas of our lives. It reminds me of a quote I posted on Twitter this morning.....
Worry gives a small thing a big shadow. -Swedish Proverb

I just have to share my story with others because I feel it might help someone in the same situation even if your not religious. I was married 7 years ago and have been infertile all 7 years due to severe PCOS. My husband and I wanted a child so badly but it just never happened and the disappointment month to month just made things worse on my health. In June 2011 I decided to get healthy and have lost 130 pounds since and my periods became regular in September 2011 until this past June. Before I lost weight I tried everything from metformin, pre-seed, vitex, and so on but nothing ever did the trick and I thought weight-loss was the answer. After I lost all of that weight and got normal again I thought a baby was a given and I can remember praying and begging God to give me a baby because I had went through so much and would be a good mom. In June when my period did not show up I thought I was pregnant but it was negative, in July when my period did not show up again I had lost all hope and did not bother to test, and by the time August rolled around and still nothing I had got to where I did not even want to have sex because I thought that there was nothing more I could do and my mind and body were exhausted. My husbands vacation was from August 13-19 and on August 12 I listened to a preacher talk about infertility and how women focus so much on their problems instead of placing their focus in a God that can heal their problems. I thought about that so much through the preaching and realized I had not given up on myself but a God who had the power to change things that are considered impossible to some. I prayed right then and told God that I was sorry for worrying so much about my problems and I forgot to have faith that he could heal. On the 14th and I will never forget it as long as I live my husband came up to me and told me how much he loved me and that no matter what we went through baby or no baby he would always be there for me. Just those kind words were enough to get me in the mood and on that night we conceived our little bundle of joy who will be due around the first of May. After docs said I would never get pregnant without clomid and after not having a period for 3 months I ovulated around that particular time frame and I can only say that a miracle happened. I believe in God and some may not share those same beliefs but either way the point is to have a little more faith in yourself or a higher power and in my case it was both -_- I wake up every day now and think what if I had not heard that preaching and gave my husband a chance. Ladies miracles can happen when you least expect them too so don't you ever give up!
