My name is Brandi Brown. I'm 31 years old. In 2008 I started my journey to be a mother. I was facing many challenges little did I know. I felt I was at the right age and responsible enough now to take on parenthood. So the journey began, I had my first surgery for a cyst and scar tissue after my recovery we began trying to have a baby. With no luck I went to another OB just for a second opinion. Here comes surgery #2 cleaning out my Fallopian tubes, and removing a couple more cysts. I was put on clomid to help with my ovulation cycles. 2 years later still no pregnancy. I wasn't giving up hope but I was feeling pretty down about the whole situation. Here I was mature, responsible and financially ready for a baby and I'm at this dead end street. Thanksgiving weekend 2011 I was having excruciating pain I couldn't even walk my boyfriend who has been thru all this with me carried me to the car and took me to the ER. After 4 hrs we find out they cant run a CT scan because I'm pregnant and they dont know where the baby is!!! 2 days later, 4 ultrasounds, 3 positive blood tests I'm still pregnant they cant find the baby and I'm loosing blood. I finally had my doctor release me so I could go to the hospital where my OB works. 2hrs after being in that hospital they told me it was an ectopic pregnancy and they had to remove my right fallopian tube. So now the 1 time I get pregnant this is where it ends. To top this all off I'm getting ready to go see my father who had cancer and was not doing to good. I spent two weeks back home in Michigan with him. I arrived back in Florida on Jan 1 2012, only to get a phone call on the 9th I needed to go back home he wont make it but a couple more days. When I arrived on the 10th I learned he passed that morning. We did his funeral arrangements and cremated him. I came back home and tried to put some of this in perspective. Only to be dealt another bad card my boyfriend Michael his father on Feb 5th passed. He had another heart attack and was in the hospital for a week. At my wits end with my sanity I needed something positive in my life. The money my father left I used for IVF treatment. I had a great pregnancy everything was going so smooth. My blood pressure was good and she was healthy. We were so excited, had my minnie mouse baby shower cuz IT'S a GIRL!!! 31wks and 3days along .. Well After Thanksgiving again I hadn't felt her move. So I went in to the hospital and come to find out the placenta calcified and cut off the oxygen to her. I am devastated 12-5-12 I delivered my stillborn baby girl Makiyah Lynn Brown. The day before my birthday 12-6-12. I am a responsible young adult with a great heart and a love for kids beyond anything you could ever imagine. Any help I can get to make this dream of motherhood possible would be such a miracle.
