My husband and I have found my pregnancy to be a wonderful experience but it has been over the holidays that we had the opportunity to discuss what our journey has been and continues to be. When we talked about our experiences, we realized how eventful this pregnancy has been with regards to the very frequent appointments, monitoring, and treatments. We never considered the amount and symptoms I have continued to experience, we are just so happy we are pregnant.
Now as our Baby is in his or her final growth spurt I am learning the issues scar tissue can cause. But with only a few weeks left and knowing that our Baby is a growing so well provides me all the comfort I need.
The bliss that has been with me in the last 8 months of being pregnant has allowed me to quickly forget some of the negative comments I had experienced prior to us getting pregnant with my medical history. Last week I was reminded again by a medical professional about my health history and the fact that I am pregnant. This individual said, “You are pregnant now with the medical history you have? Have you spoken to your doctors?”
I won’t deny that I have an extensive medical history but that is just what it is, my history. I know that we don’t know how DIGITS will progress but I do know that this baby, this baby growing strong inside me is our future.
I also know that our baby has not been affected by illness and seems to quite enjoy kicking and punching Oscar!
For all the hardships and medical challenges my body had endured, being pregnant has been the single most amazing miracle my body has given me.
