New to epilepsy. Medical Mystery!

I am a 22 year old female. I have a son that will be 3 in a few months. I didn't start having seizures until I was 7 months pregnant with my son. I have gone to multiple neurologists and have had multiple tests and studies done, one was a 7 day EEG study. They tried to trigger a seizure and were unable to. In fact my MRI's and EEGs have all come back normal. The neurologists can't find anything. They have no idea what is causing them or even what triggers them. I know I have grand mal seizures only because I have had family members whitness them. When they started I was only having them in my sleep every 3-4 months than a week ago I ended up having 2. One sleeping at 7:30 am than exactly 12 hours later at 7:30 pm I had my second one but I was awake. The neurologists can't give me answers, it is very hard for me. I am embarrassed by this, and I am terrified. I have just started coming to grips with it and am starting to learn to accept I have this disease and there is nothing I can do to change it. I have made a complete lifestyle change, I will not let this disease control me! I want to find ways to cope, get support, give support, and get involved. Thank you everyone who have read this. I would love feedback, and any input or advice anyone may have would be very much appreciated. Again, Thank You!
