So my husband and I got married in 2013 and discussed having children in the future like normal people do, on my behalf I was a little concerned seeing as I was never able to conceive in the past so I told my husband that we would have to see specialists if i wanted to get pregnant.
So we booked to see one of the top gynecologists here in Brisbane and underwent the first initial tests and the test results came back saying that I had one egg in my ovaries. “one egg??” lol..
I was told that a woman of my age should have at least 16-20 eggs in her ovaries at this stage of her productive life, so a little confused I found myself in a new world of emotions and challenges.
On top of all of this there were not really a lot of options given to me seeing as I was really seeing a businessman not a doctor of philanthropy and his asking price was just under $11,000 to have a baby, to be quite frank importing my husbands champion pure bred German Sheppard from Serbia started to cross my mind lol.. a mother to a dog for thought? hahaha… joking…!
Having studied Nutritional Medicine and Dietetics I felt that I wanted to try a more natural approach within my own bodies capabilities before I opted for a one man wonder approach.
The transition started with eliminating things from my life that were affecting the mental and physical reactions of my bodies vital organs so I gave up alcohol and became a Vegan. As crazy as it sounds I did this with the help and support of my husband, he too became a vegetarian.
After eight months of lifestyle change and being a Vegan I found myself very sick one night, like I was almost going to pass out. I was then rushed to hospital only to be told that I was pregnant. (wth) ?
I told the doctor looking after me that he was a liar and that I was not pregnant and that is was not possible, laughing at me he showed six tests that he took that proved me to be wrong.
As much as my husband and I were happy we were not really anticipating a pregnancy this soon seeing as we had only made changes to our lifestyle eight months ago. Not to mention we were also going to India and Nepal in a few months after this discovery!
I carried my baby at three months through the challenging pollution of India and I can assure you that it was something I will never take for granted here in Australia or New Zealand for that matter and that is the cleanliness of the air we breath! India really did take my breath away that’s for sure 🙂
So basically this story was meant for my family to explain what has been going on lately seeing as my new mental is to be proud of being Anti Social to an extent and I have no problem with this new coping mechanism seeing as it puts less strain on my vital organs…*lol* Dilmah tea advertisement…”Do Try It!” *lol*
