My faith helped me and finally become pregnant

by Fajeriah
(South Africa)

I was 26 years old when I found out that I had endometriosis. It happened when I had to go for an emergency appendix removal, when the test came I was told about the endometriosis. I was devastated and cried and cried.

I made an emergency appointment with my gynaecologist and he advised that I had to go for surgery in 6 weeks time.

I counted the days. I thought well now I know it's true I can never children as told by other gynaecologists. All I wanted to do was die. A life without kids - I couldn't bare the thought.

The day of my surgery finally arrived. Things just got worse when he came to see me and told me they had to remove 2 cysts the size of grapefruits from my ovaries. Finally depression kicked in, I didn't wanna live anymore.

He made an appointment in a weeks time for the results. Once again I counted the days and finally.

He sat me down and told me I'll have to be strong, going forward and I'll never have children, he just confirmed what I've heard before.

I just collapsed and sobbed. I kept on asking God why me, why me. Am I such a bad person, and now I'm being punished. All I ever wanted to be was a mom.

Thank God for my wonderful husband without him I wud have lost the plot to live.

We still carried on trying and trying and nothing. I become so bitter and hateful, actally I become a monster.

Someone then told my husband we should try a tablet called staminogrow and I was ready to try anything.

Ladies then a miracle happened, believe it or not 2 weeks later I found out that I was pregnant. My miracle finally happened.

I had a terrible pregnancy in hospital 6 times with bladder infections but I carried out full term. Had to go for a c-section but it was worth it.

My little baby boy will be 1 years old on the 13th June 2012.

So don't give up hope there's a greater power then all DR's put on earth.

God our farther. He knows what's best.

Wish u all well
