My First Trimester with my Rainbow Baby

I’ve been wanting to share with you a little about my pregnancy, but I didn’t  find the time and the willingness to start been active again on my social channels. The reason why, is because this pregnancy has taken an emotional toll in me that I didn’t expected. But let me start at the beginning how it all happened, and how shocked I was. 

If you read my blog about fertility then you should be aware that I partner with Modern FertilityLet’s Talk Fertility & Lack of Knowledge and found out with my test results that my AMH hormone was low. Meaning my ovarian reserve was low and therefore I would have trouble conceiving and needed to seek a fertility doctor. When I got those results I was devastated and I decided to consult with my OBGYN before anything, she re-tested my hormones and corroborated the results. 

During September I was so busy hosting my photography workshop and celebrating my birthday I forgot to track my ovulation and I just received a notification from one of my apps saying ovulating today. I told my husband why not, let’s try! So after that I celebrated my birthday 🎂 and ofc my wish as I blew my candles was “have a baby this year”. 

Three weeks later I was expecting my period, and I was in fact spotting and cramping so I assumed aunt flow was about to arrived. I was heading out for lunch with my husband on a Sunday and we were both in the bathroom I asked him to give me a test to figured wether I should take some tampons with me.

I was heading out for lunch with my husband on a Sunday and we were both in the bathroom I asked him to give me a test to figured wether I should take some tampons with me.

To both of us was a miracle as the two lines started to show on the test, it was very light so I didn’t want to have high expectations. Later that day we went a grabbed a digital test because I needed to read those words “Pregnant”.

From there it was a whole drama, I noticed I was pregnant too soon. So, the following week I made an appointment with my OBGYN to confirm pregnancy, the moment I arrived and told her she acted very shocked as well. They took my blood, urine and did a pelvic sonogram. The technician said there was nothing yet, but she could tell there was something forming I was 4 weeks only.

The following week I got scheduled for more blood tests, and another sonogram. The HSG levels were rising but really high and fast, the new sonogram only showed an empty sac. After been through a miscarriage hearing this was the worse news, I couldn’t stop crying thinking it was gonna happen again. They scheduled me for a new sonogram on week 6, but I started reading online that many doctors only recommend sonograms after week 8 because anything before that can be misleading or misdiagnosed. So, I postponed the appointment till then.

By the time week 8 arrived I have already been vomiting and nauseous, so I assumed it was a good sign. After my sonogram they told me there was a heart beat, and everything looked good so far. It was a relief after fearing the worse; but since I lost my first baby at almost 12 weeks, I didn’t want it to bee too attached.

Meanwhile I was feeling horrible with my morning sickness lasting all day, super hormonal crying for everything. I was literally crying just to see kids wearing costumes on Halloween. I am now on week 20 and I just started to feel better and after seeing the sonograms, and she starting to move I am feeling more confident and getting my hopes up.

I guess when you are only focusing on trying to conceive you really don’t think all that it comes with. It’s been hard for me these last couple of months, but I couldn’t be more grateful for this baby.

It has brought me closer to God again, to lean only on His promises because in my own understanding, and after seeing those results I was already classified as infertile.

I encourage my friends now, to take these hormonal tests to find out what your chances are ahead of time, and if you are around my age already and received a similar diagnose, do not loose hope; because the last word it’s only said by God.

I’ll publish my second trimester sometime next week, as Im already entering the third one. Make sure you’re subscribed so you can get notified. And if you read all the way through here. Thank you for your support and kindness.
