Colton and I started dating in the fall of 2010. He was 15 I was 16. From that moment on we were always together. We had such love for each other. We were the typical high school sweethearts. Attending every school dance and prom. At just barely 17 we decided to move out into the world on our own, we then also started trying to have a baby. We were young, but we were SO ready to bring a little life into this world. We told ourselves, if it happens it happens, if it doesn't we're still young and have all the time in the world. October 6, 2012 we said our vows in front of our family and friends and promised to love each other no matter what life throws at us. About a year later, I still was not pregnant. I got into the Dr and told him we had been trying with no luck. He was very concerned and sent me to have a HSG procedure done ( hysterossaipinogram, a procedure in which dye is shot into your fallopian tubes to clear out any blockage in the way of preventing pregnancy) my tests came back normal and we had the greenlight to continue trying to have a baby. More months passed along with 100s of negative pregnancy tests. I went back in to see my Dr and was scheduled for surgery to get a closer look at what the problem was. February 13, 2013 I had surgery and was diagnosed with Endometriosis. ( a condition in which tissue that normally lines fhs uterus grows outside of the uterus and in some cases causes infertility.) We were happy to finally have answers but sad to know we had a long road ahead of us. December of the same year I was once again on the operating table because my endo had grew back so rapidly. We thought for sure our miracle baby would be in our near future after having my insides cleaned out and ready for a pregnancy. Sadly, we still had no luck. My Dr decided we should try fertility treatments since it still wasn't happening. Between the year of 2014-2015 I did 3 rounds of the fertility drug, clomid. Each round failed. And we got knocked back down again. We started losing all hope as we had already tried for what felt like an eternity. 2014 we got offered to adopt a baby. We took the chance knowing that this may be our only one and becoming the parents we so desperately wanted to be. December 2014 we drove 28 hours away from home to watch our son be born. December 29th a perfect boy entered the world and we were overjoyed to finally be parents! However some problems came to surface and we had to travel back home without our baby boy. We were crushed. October 2015 we took one more shot at trying to find a solution to our problem. We were referred to one of the best fertility clinics in Utah. The Dr told us we had a good chance at having a baby though IVF. We finally started to feel some relief. But, due to fertility treatments being pretty expensive we couldn't move forward. We then decided to take a  break from all the stress of trying to become pregnant, and to work on ourselves and our marriage and try to heal ourselves from all the pain we had felt the prior years. 2017 and almost 7 years later we are ready to make it "Our year".  We would love the chance to finally start IVF, however even with us both working full-time we cannot afford it. It has been a dream since I was a little girl to be a mother, it is now my dream to make my husband a father.  I get told so much that I have plenty of time. But when fighting infertility,everyday counts. Our hearts break a little more everyday that passes knowing we would be amazing parents but haven't had the chance yet. All I want in this life is one chance to be a mother. It's hard knowing it could probably happen but can't, because the hefty bill that  comes with IVF. Infertility is real and is absolutely heartbreaking.
