Anim na taon na po kaming kasal ng aking asawa at sa loob ng anim na taon ay sumusubok po kaming magkaroon ng anak. Na-diagnose po ako ng endometriosis, PCOS at retroverted po ang uterus ko and I even have dextroscoliosis.
Less than 10% ang chance para mabuntis. I had 3 surgeries para maalis ang mga polyps sa uterus ko. Monthly din ang ob check up ko. Plus all the fertility meds and booster shots para mabuntis.
On my second surgery, after a month. I got pregnant. Sobrang saya po namin mag-asawa kasi sa wakas nabuntis na ako. On my first check up at 5 weeks wala pa nakikita na heartbeat kasi baka daw too early sabi ng OB icheck ulit after a week.
But the sad news came when I was 6 weeks pregnant. It was an ectopic pregnancy at kailangan alisin si baby kaysa lumaki at mag-rupture which is more complicated. That was the most heartbreaking news I had ever received I even question God why me?

Nag-try ulit kami after a year
Then after a year na makabuo ulit, sabi ng OB ko dumadami na naman mga polyps and need operahan that was my 3rd surgery. After the surgery sabi ko kay Doc kapag wala pa din talaga mag IVF na lang kaming mag-asawa kasi nag-start na din kami mag-save for that.
But then he said no, mabubuntis daw ako before the year end. My surgery was done September. True enough by January of this year aunt flow didn’t come.
So I knew I was already pregnant. Pero dahil sa pain before na baka ectopic pregnancy ulit, mas nanaig ‘yong takot namin mag-asawa kaya ‘di kami nagpa-check up until pass 6 weeks. When we had our first check up and ultrasound my heart beat na si baby.

My pregnancy journey was never easy. Sobrang sensitive ko magbuntis at maselan. The monthly check-up was okay until the baby was 5 months I had mild contractions and the baby’s head is going down.
Need daw mag-bed rest or else baka mag-open and cervix at manganak ako ng wala sa oras. Then at 28 weeks nagka-COVID ako very mild. Biglang tumaas ang BP at sugar ko.
So I need to monitor both kasi delikado kay baby. The monthly check up became weekly kasi high risk pregnancy na and baby was too small for her gestational age. Regular check up ko when I was 33 weeks pero sobrang taas ng BP ko di na bumaba.
I was admitted for monitoring and every other day blood monitoring for preeclampsia at tumataas siya. Kapag tumataas daw ang BP as per the OB consultant explanation ‘di daw maganda kay baby kasi nawawalan siya ng oxygen.
So they decided to induce me into labor on my 34th week. I had contractions and because I have dextroscoliosis super sakit ng likod ko during labor and I’m was not a candidate for the painless delivery na sinasabi nila because of the curve at my back. Bumababa na heartbeat ni baby that’s why they decided to do an emergency CS for me.
My baby stayed at the NICU for 13 days kasi sobrang liit niya nung lumabas she was only 1.575gm. Poor din ang sucking niya during her first few days yun pala ay dahil meron siya tongue tie stage 3 kaya halos ‘di na niya maigalaw dila niya to suck.
She had her first surgery which is tongue tie removal when she was only a week old. Now she’s 2 months and very healthy. Thank God.
