Just because something isn’t happening for you right now doesn’t mean it will never happen. Always remember this, Mommies.
Besides being a successful woman, my biggest dream is to become a mother. I love children. At the age of 17, I learned to take care of a baby because our youngest brother arrived unexpectedly. When I graduated from college, I got a job, and that’s when I started taking care of myself. I always see an OB-Gynecologist because we have a family history of Myoma. My fiance and I have decided to start a family – whether the child or marriage comes first. But, of course, the Lord did not allow the child to come first. After five years, we got married, and I walked down the altar with an empty womb.
It’s been six months since we got married, and nothing is happening. So I decided to consult a Fertility Doctor. There I learned a lot that there are many things that should be avoided. For instance, riding a motorcycle has a bad effect on the development of the child because the male egg is stuck. It is also not good to wear tight briefs, and drinking alcohol has a great effect on the development of the child. Actually, drinking alcohol is what my husband has abandoned the most.
Our Doctor requested a transvaginal ultrasound or ‘trans-V,” and she also requested semen analysis somewhere in Ortigas. I’m happy that my husband also wants to have a child, so he’s open to whatever the doctor tells us to do to find out how we can have a child.
I had a hormonal imbalance. She advised me to take Folic Acid, Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10). As for my husband, the findings of his sperm count are normal. But his sperm dies immediately and does not reach the egg cell. He was advised to take iVigor Ace and Glutathione. We are okay for 3 months, but our medicine is expensive. The budget is 10k a month for both of us, so we stopped taking medicine. At the same time, I was frustrated because, in Sept 2019, I was delayed for 1 week. I used a pregnancy test or pt, and the result was negative. The doctor said it might be too early so I waited for another week that’s when I got my period the following week.
In December 2019, we tried to take Belta Folic Acid from Japan, and both my husband and I took it well for 1 month. It has many good reviews, and there is nothing to lose, so we tried. Until January 2020, my husband and I decided to do LCIF (Low Carb Intermittent Fasting), strict 16:8, no rice, only ulam, black coffee, and no fast food. We also decided to stop drinking medicine except for glutathione for him and folic acid for me. We talked about not expecting to have children, for now, so we won’t be disappointed. Let’s just let it come at the right time when the Lord will give him to us, let’s enjoy ourselves first.
We planned to travel out of the country in 2020, but quarantine happened due to COVID. Yes, suddenly, a lockdown was announced, and I noticed something different about me. Feb 16 was my last period, and March 14 should’ve been the first day of my period. In my case, it was already March 19 when I still hadn’t had my period. I asked my brother to buy me a pregnancy test because it might be lucky if someone else bought it for me. That day I lost my excitement even though I had the PT because I was afraid I might be disappointed again. So the next day, March 20, 2020, at 8 am, I went to the comfort room and use the pregnancy test, after 3 minutes, 2 lines came out, but the other one was a faint line. So I don’t know if I will cry or what. I messaged my Aunt, who is an OB since our fertility doctor did not reply to the email at that time. And she confirmed it. I AM FINALLY PREGNANT! I cried for joy and woke up my husband with good news. I did not only use one pt, I did use 6 pt until the 2 lines became clear.
The Lord will truly give you what you ask for at a time and day you do not expect. Unexpected blessing ❤️
Always pray for the things you want to happen but don’t expect God to give them as soon as you wish. Do what you have to do, don’t just ask. Always remember that mercy is in God, and the action is in man. After 5 years, God answered our prayer.
