You yearn for tiny fingers curled around your pinky, to watch your toddler’s wobbled walk (and inevitable fall), and you are preparing your heart for the fever of adolescence.
Your planning is more like an obsession. You are reading “What to Expect” for the third time and are on page 46 of pregnancy forums searching for advice. You even have baby names picked out, started a registry and have a Pinterest board for your nursery.
You are ready to flush every ovulation predictor kit and fertility tracking app down the toilet because you can’t deal with another disappointment. Last month, you just KNEW that your boobs were tender. You even thought you had a heightened sense of smell because this was THE MONTH—you tracked, planned and peed on 50,000 sticks—only to be disappointed again.
You are jealous every time you see a pregnancy announcement on Facebook. You can’t help but think “Why her and not me?” And you certainly say this out loud. This journey has become isolating and anxiety-inducing.
You’ve tried everything. No one can say you’re not doing your best… you’re diligently taking your prenatals… keeping a track of your ovulation, getting it in with your boo during your most fertile days (and doing a little extra), yet, you still find yourself pulling over car to let uncontrollable tears fall, to scream out in frustration every time the test reads “Not Pregnant”
You know motherhood is a remarkable gift and privilege that you’d never take lightly
You are undeniably in love and want nothing more than to create a life with your partner
You are mentally, spiritually and financially prepared for parenthood; and even still you know that no amount of planning can prepare you for the love, joy, responsibility and selflessness of motherhood.
Shortly after my husband and I decided that we were going to start trying to get pregnant I was diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). I was crushed. Here I was, 28 years old with all of the degrees, the amazing guy, the career, but no baby. In fact, I began to wonder if there would ever be a baby. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve cried after seeing yet ANOTHER pregnancy announcement on Facebook. How many times I’ve yelled at God for giving other people babies but constantly passing me by. The many, many times I’ve had to check the mirror before going into class to see how badly my tears had ruined my mascara.
Like most women, I relied on my doctor to help me treat my PCOS and get me closer to becoming a mother. Unfortunately my doctor could only offer me few options that were both expensive and invasive. I knew that I couldn't afford surgery and I didn't want to put my body through the stress associated with medications and procedures like IVF and IUI. So, I decided to take matters into my own hands. I decided to focus on my mindset, nutrition, and lifestyle. Within three months of trying I became pregnant with our healthy & beautiful son, Roman. I was told that it could take years for me to get pregnant. But instead of making that my reality, I chose to focus on my body as a whole and use natural ways to support my body's ability to conceive. And it worked!
