Naturally Pregnant After God Renewed My Hope
September 18, 2018
“My husband and I decided we were ready to begin trying to grow our family after his first deployment. I religiously began taking my prenatal vitamins, eating well, not drinking any alcohol, tracking my cycles, taking my temperature and praying.
After moving across the country, I felt God’s calling to focus on healing my body, rejuvenating my spirit and draw closer to Him. I joined a Bible Studyand went to a homeopathic doctor. I knew this wouldn’t “get me pregnant” but I was curious how healthy I was. I found out I had Candida and Leaky gut and we decided to move forward with a homeopathic regimen to heal my body and balance my hormones.
About 2 months into this new lifestyle, I came across In Due Time devotional! After reading Caroline’s blog, she was a breath of fresh air, speaking God’s truths to places in my heart I didn’t even know needed healing. I began getting very active in Moms in the Making, meeting new friends walking along the same journey who just “got it” and were so loving.
By summer 2017 I was on fire for Jesus, believing only He had the power to heal me! Not to be obsessed with what went into my body but be mindful of it. I had more support and prayer warriors in my life than I ever knew possible. Fast forward to Oct. 2017, I got to be a part of the MITM conference. There were blessings upon blessings when I arrived. You could feel the Holy Spirit in every detail and facet of this conference. It was so emotional and raw. I felt broken down in the best way allowing the Lord to lead me and not my own foolish ways. It was the BEST decision going to support such an empowering ministry and being a part of God’s work through this fellowship of believers.
A couple weeks after being broken down, poured into and prayed over by the sweetest women, my HOPE was renewed…and then I received my first BFP!! I was able to surprise my husband when he arrived home from a 5 day hunting trip. It was the most touching moment to share together. We were expectant, hopeful and we were blessed greatly! Our miracle, Maelynn, was born August 1st! She is such a blessing already! Praise God!”
