She’s thankful for a husband who never pressured her to have a baby. Mina said he became his shoulder to cry on during every disappointing event in her PCOS journey.
“He’s always assured me that he will love me with or without a child,” she said. “There came a point when we talked and agreed that we wouldn’t put pressure on ourselves anymore, that if God wanted us to have a baby, then He would give it to us. I stopped taking pills then since my period was already regulated, but continued practicing a healthy lifestyle. We also helped and rescued stray dogs, which provided us much comfort.”
And then the unexpected blessing came one morning when after a delayed period, Mina took a pregnancy test and saw two lines on it. She was in total disbelief that they had to buy more test kits to confirm the result.
“I didn’t get my hopes up though because I was aware that women with PCOS are prone to chemical pregnancy and miscarriage. When we did an ultrasound two days after, the doctor told me she couldn’t see a baby, not even a gestational sac. I felt crushed, of course,” narrated Mina. “I insisted on another pregnancy test in the clinic and the result still showed two lines, which meant I was pregnant. That’s when my OB-GYN suggested for us to do another ultrasound after two weeks. On the next ultrasound, our baby was there—and her heartbeat was the best sound we’ve ever heard!”
