I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl three days ago. My very own #ovatempbaby.
I am now officially a mother of two. My miracle baby boy David, the very first Ovatemp Baby, and this new baby girl, Eva. She took us by surprise and I have no words to express how grateful I am for that.
When David was born doctors said that getting pregnant again would be hard. I had gone through so much trying to conceive him. I had beaten all odds (according to doctors there was no way I'd get pregnant without at least a round of IVF) and gotten pregnant naturally. I had been able to carry to term after a miscarriage and given birth to a healthy, strong baby. So at my 6 week postpartum checkup my doctor told me to get ready to go on the pill once I stopped breastfeeding, otherwise my cycles would become wacky again, cysts would once again invade my ovaries, my endometriosis would worsen and conceiving baby number 2 would be next to impossible without some kind of hormonal treatment. Yeah right.
We conceived Eva when David was 7 months old. I was exclusively breastfeeding and since we had taken so long to get pregnant the first time we figured it would be the same the second time around. Imagine our surprise when we got our big fat positive! It was, according to doctors, against all odds, but deep in my heart I knew it was not.
Eva is proof that everything we did to conceive David had long term positive effects on my fertile health. All the changes in diet, lifestyle, stress management, acupuncture and so on were so beneficial that when my cycles came back they weren't wacky at all. When trying to conceive the first time around I had managed to heal my body, I took back control of my ovaries, I was able to fix the root of the problem and not just mask it with synthetic hormones. Eva is proof of that and this makes my desire to help other couples struggling with infertility that much stronger.
We are so happy to welcome this little girl into our lives. It is a beautiful reminder of why we are working hard on our biz baby: Ovatemp.
