Mom to Emery Rose
October 20, 2015-October 21, 2015
In August 2014, I was diagnosed with diminished ovarian reserve and told that I likely would never be able to conceive a child again. My husband and I accepted this and actually were not looking to have any more children. At the time, we already had a boy 11 and a girl 4. It was something we just took off of our radar and continued on.
In April of 2015, I discovered I was pregnant. We were shocked and nervous, but I was still so excited. The day I found out I was pregnant I went in for blood work. The very next day the doctor’s office called and said that I had very low progesterone. I remember the nurse asking, “Are you bleeding, spotting or cramping?” I told her no and that I actually felt fine. She seemed quite surprised and said she would call in a prescription for progesterone and that I needed an ultrasound the same week. The ultrasound confirmed what we already knew and they determined a due date of December 10, 2015.
