Campaign Story

Hello, I’m Alyah. Jordan (my fiancé) and I have been trying for years to have a baby of our own. I have underwent two surgeries prior to the devastating day on 3/4/2022. Prior surgeries were to open my Fallopian tubes and remove scar tissue- those surgeries had multiple reasons behind getting them: pain relief and helping us get one step closer to have a baby of our own. We have changed our diets and our lives to accommodate for this long journey. On Friday, March 4th I woke up with an intense abdominal pain, the pain became unbearable and Jordan made the decision to take me to the ER. As the ER doctor run same tests he gave us amazing but heartbreaking news. We were finally pregnant, yet the pain and bleeding I was having meant this pregnancy was in danger. Turns out I had an ectopic pregnancy (embryo did not make it to the uterus but attached to my Fallopian tube). I was rushed to surgery due to this being life threatening and the tube and embryo were removed. After the surgery the surgeon had informed us that my surviving tube is just as badly damaged and IVF would be our only option. If we continue to try and have a baby the natural way risks not only another ectopic pregnancy but my life. We are currently saving money for IVF but would appreciate any help anyone would like to give us. IVF is not a cheap process; currently we are looking for loan options our surgeon has offered us and made this GoFundMe to see if another would help us with donations. This has been a very long, emotional, and exhausting process, we truly appreciate and thank you with open hearts for anyone who wants to help us achieve this goal we have tried so hard to accomplish.
