I pretty much did a 180. From never wanting to be a mom, to loosing my own mother which led me to desperately wanting my own family. I was 39 and a late bloomer in that department.
My first pregnancy went relatively well until the end of my 2nd trimester were things changed. I developed preeclampsia and my son was born at 32 weeks (two months early) and we spent 5 weeks in the NICU. This traumatic experience was followed by severe depression, weight gain, fatigue, hopelessness, anxiety and loss of interest in doing just about anything. This insanely emotional rollercoaster, which ended in a miscarriage, was one of the darkest years of my life.
After seeing several doctors that only wanted to prescribe anti-depressants, I decided to make it my mission to get to the root cause and heal from the inside out. My miscarriage fueled a hunger in me to figure out what I can do to increase my egg quality and get pregnant with a full term healthy baby.
