Motherhood is a beautiful phase in any woman’s life. Few women conceive easily and a few struggle for years.
After two years of being married, even I wished to experience the magic. However, the result was not fruitful.
We thought there could be some issue with us. We met a gynaecologist, and she told me there doesn’t seem to be any issue with us. But to be on the safer side, she asked us to get certain tests done. All reports came within the biological parameter.
The gynaecologist suggested a few tips. Some of them were:
1. Keep a record of your menstrual cycle.
2. The fertile window is of a short span, so she suggested we try to conceive every alternate day during the fertile window.
3. Maintain a healthy weight and eat healthy food.
4. Say goodbye to stress – this is an important measure.
5. Indulge in some form of exercise
We tried everything, and I won’t say it was easy. However, we did see the results in 6 months. I clearly remember the day when my reports came back positive, I was crying, and I texted my husband that we are pregnant.
I had a smooth first trimester – no vomiting, no nausea. I only experienced acidity and weakness. A woman’s body undergoes a lot of changes, and this was just the beginning.
My second trimester also went smoothly, and I used to do everything. I used to go to work regularly, walk every day, and ate lots of fruits and vegetables. My belly started becoming visible from 6 months onwards, so a lot of people did not know about my pregnancy before that.
From my third trimester, people started taking extra care, at work and home. During my growth scan in the seventh month, I got to know that the blood wasn’t flowing properly to the baby from one of my arteries. I had taken extra care as my doctor told me we need to stretch the pregnancy till the 9th month. The reason for this problem was not known. I was put on medication and had to report my fetal count to the doctor daily. My pregnancy stretched till the 9th month, and I had a C-section delivery. My baby boy was delivered. My angel arrived, and the moment I held him was the best day of my life.
Everyone’s life, body, medical conditions are different. So don’t lose hope, things take time. Still, if you don’t succeed, meet a doctor for advanced treatment.
Cheers to motherhood and life!
