Third Time Lucky Pregnancy.
Me and my fiance wanted to have a child together, we talked about it for 2 years before trying. When I finally did become pregnant I lost it at 7 weeks into the pregnancy. We were both devastated by the event. I thought that it was a cruel joke being played on me by the universe and I kept thinking to myself how is it possible for a woman who is addicted to drugs and alcohol to give birth, but for a woman who does everything right to have a healthy pregnancy, have it taken away from her?
We grieved for a few months, then I found out I was pregnant again but this time it turned out to be a phantom pregnancy and I lost that, too. By this stage I was thinking that I was never going to be able to have children. Anyway, we decided to wait to try again just one more time.
A year later I was reading about vision boards on The Secret website and how they had helped others get what they wanted so I decided to make one for myself. I put it up in front of the treadmill and I looked at it every day as well as picturing it in my mind and I also pictured in my mind how happy we would both be when we had a child to call our own.
After a few months I did a pregnancy test and it came back positive so I stuck it on my vision board. When I was in the middle part of my first trimester of pregnancy I took the vision board down off the wall but I still pictured it in my mind and felt the feelings of holding my baby in my arms. The whole pregnancy was a good one and everything went well.
Nine months later I gave birth to a healthy boy.
