When I mention that I had a natural uncomplicated home birth with my daughter people tell me I am "really lucky" to have had that experience. The more I've heard this the more irritating I've found it! I wasn't "lucky" I planned my birth and I researched everything I possibly could to ensure I was prepared. I knew what my body was doing and why it was doing it. I had a birth plan that was over three pages long, most of it was about the fact I wanted to be left alone as much as possible to do my thing and concentrate on the job at hand because I had complete faith in my body and my baby to do what needed to be done without intervention.
I am so excited that you’ve taken me up on this Confident Birthplan.
Egg freezing is a method used to save women's ability to get pregnant in the future. Mature oocyte cryopreservation is another name of egg freezing. When the eggs are frozen and stored for future use, it is known as egg freezing. The frozen eggs can be thawed, combined with sperm in a laboratory. In the future, whenever the eggs are needed, they can be implanted in your uterus through a technique called In Vitro Fertilization (IVF). One must seek expert advice before deciding for fertility preservation. It is advisable to know all the related potential risks before opting for egg preservation.
Results are in and the check-up has been scheduled.
I heard the siren yelp afar off faintly and frantically raced up and down the floor, my eyes appalled with fear. We had waited for this for nearly 40 weeks, but one look at my wife sent chills of fear through my spine.
The ancient Greek physician, Hippocrates, once said, “Let food be
When COVID19 hit the UK in March, I was forced to spend an unimaginable time with my parents. I love them dearly, but I think anyone in their 20s and after returning home from the freedom at university, would feel the same way. It just requires a lot of patience from all participants if you know what I mean…
I don’t, honestly, think you were out to offend me. And the truth is, you didn’t much. But I also think there’s an important educational moment for you here. That’s why we’re talking about this weeks after the fact.
I thought I was living my life to the fullest, I had the world in my hands, I never thought the real joy and happiness in life is having such a beautiful baby girl. That's what they called her; nurses and doctors, not having picked out a name for her yet. But, before I start I have to go the beginning, how my life was changed from just this beautiful experience I never thought would happen, especially not at 20 years of age. My life wasn't great, my childhood wasn't perfect, and the many horrible things my siblings and I endured are beyond belief. Although life wasn't great it did take time and it was on the right track, at the age of 18 I grew up and put all my nonsense behind me.
First thing's first; there are A LOT of things that nobody tells you about childbirth. The truth is, though, it's a miracle and I'd do it all again. I'm really not writing this to scare anyone, but to educate future mothers on what's ahead. Not that I'm crazy experienced with motherhood (I mean, I have a 6 month old), but I'm telling you the truth, and I'm going to run you through it all. Just kow that no matter how you feel now, the day your baby comes none of that will matter!
The test stirp shows a positive result. I'm pregnant. That makes more sense on why I have been feeling this way now. Excited, nervous, happy, scared. Scared, why am I scared? Things in the world are changing and not in a good way. I know things are always changing some for the good and some for the bad. Finding out I'm pregnant at this time in life is not ideal.
