I am the stereotypical Texas girl....big hair, love of football, baseball and most things fried. I will fight to the death anyone that says anything bad about my great state! I have built my blog to share the story of trying to have a baby with my wonderful husband. We have been married for 11 years, have seen 3 fertility doctors, had 5 inseminations and 2 IVF procedure done. In October of 2013 we got pregnant with our miracle baby! Sadly, on my 32nd birthday we miscarried and I almost died due to diverticulitis and an undiscovered blood clotting disorder. After nearly 2 months in the hospital and a long recovery, we were ready to try again. In October of 2014, we tried again with one embryo, and surprisingly, got pregnant again!!! At our 14 week ultrasound, they found no heartbeat. We found out through chromosomal testing that our baby girl, Ariel Lynne Gaines, had Turner syndrome, which has a 99% spontaneous miscarriage rate. We have decided that we feel like adoption is our next step, so we are diving into that head first!!
