I would like to share my story, as many women struggle with similar issues as I did, and I feel that my story may give them hope and faith to keep trying.
I was diagnosed with polycystic ovaries a number of years ago, and after a year of trying to fall pregnant and numerous rounds of medication to induce ovulation, we were referred to a fertility clinic. My husband had a low sperm motility and had to start medication for high insulin levels. It was discovered that I also had Stage 3 to 4 endometriosis. I was booked for a laparoscopy on the 20 August 2015 to remove the endometriosis. While in surgery, the gynae discovered a septum in my uterus which he removed.
The week following the op, I developed a bad bladder infection and went to the gynae for antibiotics. That day, I started vomiting and thought I was having a bad reaction to the medication. I changed antibiotics and continued vomiting. I went back to the gynae to check that there were no post-op complications. He did a scan and a blood test. I WAS PREGNANT! Apparently I had conceived a few days prior to the op and I was pregnant while having the surgery. My little embryo survived the op and all the medication and I am now 20 weeks pregnant.
We are claiming a miracle in our lives that this happened for us when we had been told it would be quite unlikely to fall pregnant naturally.
My husband and I hated people telling us to ‘put it out of our minds’ and ‘it will happen’. Ironically, we had done just that. We had decided to leave it until I had had the op and he had undergone a follow up sperm test after 2 months. We are claiming a miracle in our lives that this happened for us when we had been told it would be quite unlikely to fall pregnant naturally. I hope my story inspires some mommies-to- be to keep their faith and I send them my prayers that their wishes are also fulfilled.
Thank you for letting me share, Phillippa Morassi ♡
