After I had lost Keira our little girl on the 2nd January 2012. I was really upset and I never believed that I would have a wonderful pregnancy with no issues and or problems.
In March 2012, once my gynae had come back from maternity leave for having her baby the same day I lost mine,she gave me a call. And she told me I should wait at least a year before I try again to fall pregnant. I had done a lot of reading and checking this forum for answers as to how long I should wait to try again. All I ever wanted in the whole wide world was to become a MOM.
At my check-up with the stand in gynae I asked him how long should I take to start trying again..... He answered me and said as soon as you are well and ready to try again. Months went by and seeing pregnant ladies around me made me so hurt. But each person goes through their loss and grief in different ways. I sat down with my husband one night in tears and said would he want to try again. And we decided to try again.
I had not been back to my original gynae since and decided against going back to her. I had spoken to many people and decided on changing gynaes and went to a new one instead. I had explained my story to him and he was so sensitive. He asked a few questions and did an examination and so we started the process of trying again.....
Our little boy was conceived on Father's Day, while I was holding the pregnancy test in my hand, I went hot and cold and just started to ball my eyes out. Phoned my husband straight away and started crying on the phone to him. He was over the moon. My new gynae had said the minute I get the blood tests back from the doctors rooms I phone and make an appointment, and say it is a high risk pregnancy. When I went for my gynae appointment it was true I was 5 weeks pregnant. We were so excited and scared!!!!!!!! And you have crazy things going through your mind......what if this happens again.
Well we took this pregnancy one step at a time. Nice and slow. My new gynae looked at me and said I promise nothing will happen. I said ok, and I believed him. My husband and family have been there through the whole pregnancy egging me on when I have had those bad days and sad days. Positive thinking is also a very important key too.
The whole pregnancy went perfectly well with no issues or problems what so ever. Though I was put onto ecotrin from 12 weeks on. No bladder or kidney infections and or other problems occurred throughout my pregnancy. Our little boy, Connor has grown amazingly well throughout the pregnancy,and has been healthy and so has his mommy. I am currently at 38 weeks today, and am due to give birth via c-section tomorrow morning.
I would just like to give those ladies out there some hope and courage to try again..... You can do it!
Wishing you all safe and successful pregnancies from this day forward!!!!!!!!!
I found out I was pregnant in the middle of everything. I was finishing graduate school for my MSW... Read MorePaige
