Hey guys!! I cannot even believe this is a video that I am able to film, today is a Q&A about finally getting pregnant after YEARS of infertility!!! I am going to answer all of your frequently asked questions, and I will timestamp them as well below in case you want to skip around.
I sort of answer things here and there throughout, discuss my symptoms, how i’ve been feeling mentally, coming to terms with never being a mother and then having to come to terms with the fact that I AM going to be a mom. This has been an absolute emotional rollercoaster, and getting to the point where I can even begin to accept that I am going to have a baby.. we are going to be parents.. is the hardest thing I can explain. I KNEW in my heart and soul I would NEVER get pregnant, so this is a shock to say the absolute least.
I know when I am speaking about this, shock is the main emotion I convey – But DO KNOW that we are SO SO SO unbelievably happy, elated & SO excited. I think when we can FINALLY see that the baby is growing, happy and healthy (at the 20 week ultrasound) I will be able to be FULLY relaxed and be able to accept that this is FULLY HAPPENING. Right now, I still have a LOT of anxiety about my body failing me and causing problems for the baby, so every time I see or hear the baby, its like music to my ears!
I have such bad health related anxiety, that I was SO certain something might go wrong. Before the first ultrasound, I was certain it would either be ectopic or no heartbeat – I was wrong. Before we heard the heartbeat, I was certain they wouldn’t find it – they did. When they did the genetic testing to see if I was a carrier of something that could be passed on to the baby, I was SURE I would be – and I wasn’t. My anxiety stops me from fully enjoying anything, because of the fear of the unknown – but I am now trying to FULLY allow myself to enjoy and embrace this pregnancy, and that is an unbelievable and amazing feeling.
I am 16 weeks pregnant *my weeks turn over on Saturdays, the day I filmed this video*
