So, Here’s The Gist

After trying for 9 consecutive months to conceive, I finally got a positive pregnancy test…or 7 in the same day because I seriously couldn’t believe my eyes and decided to pee on 7 sticks as if it was some kind of mistake! I even got to surprise my husband that same evening when he got home from work AND celebrate what we worked so hard for! It almost seemed too good to be true that day.

I remember being a little girl and telling my best friends how I wanted to be married by 25, and have my first baby around the age of 26 or 27. Little did I know that putting timelines on life just shouldn’t happen, but little girls can dream, right?

I didn’t necessarily stick to this timeline as I matured, but I always had it in the back of my mind (and if I’m being honest, that plan sounded so perfect). The easiest part was being married at 25, especially when a man, who is seriously a saint, fell right into my lap. I got to check that box off my non-existent list of life goals. After you get married, every couple experiences the 2 most daunting questions: 1. How is ‘married life?’ {insert eye roll emoji} and 2. When are you having babies?!

That second question has lead me to where we are today: blogging about my crazy post-marriage journey.

Unfortunately, my husband and I didn’t get to celebrate my pregnancy for more than a week when I was first diagnosed with a “possible miscarriage” from the ER, went through a surgical D&C and officially diagnosed with an ectopic pregnancy (details can be found here- ectopic pregnancies). Following this surgery and diagnosis, I underwent 4 treatments of chemotherapy simply to save my fallopian tubes and my chances of TTC (trying to conceive) in the future as well as to remove any traces of the pregnancy and pregnancy hormone from my body. It was a long and rough 7 weeks of pain, guilt, grieving, depression, and sadness-practically the entirety of my summer break.

I tend to stay on the paths that have always brought me enjoyment, so I eventually turned to writing as an outlet; something to free my mind.

It’s not easy being vulnerable, but here I am, with Tiny Footprints being left in my life and heart. I hope to help create a support system in order to help others heal too from a topic that hides in the darkness. So here we are. My story is nowhere near “short,” but if you’ve had Tiny Footprints left on your heart too, or even if you don’t, follow along as we journey through this together.
