I know that a lot of people have to deal with infertility issues. It can be a time filled with disappointment and worry. I know several close friends of mine have had to deal with this issue. Some of them were able to get pregnant while others were not. But the good news is that all of them have beautiful children who they love very much, either from giving birth or from adoption.
I have been extremely blessed to have given birth to my daughter. I know how lucky I am from watching others struggle with infertility. I did have my worries about infertility issues myself, though. When I was in my early 20’s, I had to have a procedure to remove some cells from my cervix. I was doing some research on the procedure and I saw that it could cause infertility problems in women. I asked my doctor about this and she said that it was possible that it may make it more difficult for me to become pregnant. If I didn’t have the procedure then the cells could turn cancerous. At the time, the fertility issues didn’t worry me as much as the threat of cancer! I was young and wasn’t even thinking about having a baby anytime soon.
Well, fast forward to my late 20’s when it seemed like everyone I knew was getting pregnant and having babies. I started wondering if I would be able to have one. I wasn’t trying to get pregnant but the thought did creep into my mind every once in a while. Doctors recommend that you have a baby before you are 35, otherwise your risk factors start going up for you and your baby. I was worried that by the time I felt “ready” I would be too old. Most people wait until they’re well into their 30’s now before even thinking about having a baby. You want to graduate from college, start your career, get married, and then have a baby. By the time I did all of that, I would be past 35! Would I be able to get pregnant?
Well, it looks like God had other plans for me. I wasn’t trying to have a baby when I got pregnant with my daughter. I call her my “little surprise”. When I saw that plus sign on the pregnancy test, all kind of emotions came over me: excitement, fear, worry, joy, pretty much every emotion that there is. I’m so glad I had her when I did. I don’t think I would have ever felt “ready” and like I could handle being a Mom. I guess I just had to kind of be thrown into it head first :).
If you are one of those people that does feel “ready” to start your family, there are so many things you can do to prepare your body and hopefully, get pregnant.
