When I was 18 (2005) I went to the doctor to see why I was having all the pain in my abdomen and huge blood clots when I had my cycle. I was told after a few doctors appts. that I had Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome.
I was devastated because I was told I would never get pregnant on my own. My doctor asked if I felt comfortable having a hysterectomy at that point because of other complications. I went in a state of depression and couldn't talk about it without breaking down. I couldn't really talk to my mom because she was as devastated as I was.
I had to have surgery to remove tumors off of my uterus and ovaries. I just chalked it up that I would have to take some type of fertility treatment or end up adopting. I wasn't in a hurry to have kids so I tried to just put it out of my mind.
When I was 20 (2007) My boyfriend kept telling me that I was pregnant. I knew I wasn't because of my condition. He said it day in and day out. It really started making me upset and I would cry sometimes. I went to the doctor and was told I was 8 weeks pregnant.
I asked how with my condition? My doctor stated "Think of it as your little miracle." I still didn't get my hopes up because I knew at any moment anything could've happened. I waited until I reached 5 months before I even told my mother. I didn't want to tell everyone and then have to turn around and explain why I wasn't pregnant anymore.
Anyway, all went well and I have a beautiful 4 month old baby boy. He was 7 pounds, 14 ounces, and 21 inches on the date of his birth on January 23,2008. The Lord has truly blessed me and just because your doctors tell you one thing, you never know what GOD has in store for you. I hope my story can help someone who is at a point in their lives that I once was just 3 years ago. GOD BLESS
