In 2010 I became pregnant with our first child, and lost our unborn baby "Charlie" at 5 months due to complications. After that tragic loss, We decided to try again and became pregnant in 2011. This pregnancy was found out to be a cervical pregnancy, and Iwas life-flighted to Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. I was hospitalized for a month. While there I endured emergency surgery, and lost the fetus and my uterus in order to save my life.
In addition to going through losing two babies, I have a rare genetic disorder called BRCA1 where I am at an extremely high risk for breast cancer and ovarian cancer. On March 13th of 2012, I underwent a double mastectomy and I had my ovaries removed in September of this year(2013)
The following is my journal from the last 2 years of everything I have been through:
