Those who follow my blog know that I conceived after 8 years of battle with infertility. It was a such a happy moment I couldn’t believe it at first. My husband was overjoyed. So were my in-laws and my mother.
Our joy was short lived when a 2 months scan revealed that uterus is compartmentalised. My uterus was 8 shaped with head in one and body in other compartment. My radiologist said he hadn’t seen a case like this. Miraculously it rectified by itself by the time of subsequent scan. After that my pregnancy was a breeze. But delivery was a different ballgame. I had to go for a emergency c section one day after due date. Baby’s umbilical cord was wrapped around it’s neck 5 times! The doctor and nurses panicked a little but somehow delivered safely. my baby boy. We thought the worst was over but soon after the doctor left I suffered from post-partum haemorrhage. I could see and hold my baby only the next day.
From that day on my life has changed for the better. The new experiences of being a mom was a bit overwhelming. I couldn’t breastfeed initially. For 2 weeks my son was formula fed. But then I could nurse my baby. At 12 weeks , when we went for a vaccination, my paediatrician scared us saying my son is isn’t smiling socially. He’s not normal! To hell with such unethical doctors who scare patients unnecessarily. She caused so much anguish and made us spend thousands of rupees on unnecessary tests. My baby did start to smile after a few weeks and it’s such a beauty!
My son is now 10 months old. He’s the apple of my eye. The sunshine in my life. The proverbial light at the end of my infertility tunnel.
