How We Got Pregnant After 2 Miscarriages!

hey guys welcome back to our Channel today we are going to be doing a highly requested video and I'm going to be getting right into it and talking about trying to conceive tips on trying to conceive things that I personally did that I think may have been helpful in trying to conceive and just kind of give you guys some advice and some things that I think would be helpful to you if you are currently in that process of wanting a little baby and you're kind of struggling to get there and here's some tips and tricks that may help you so let's just go ahead and get right into the video all righty well I have my tips written here on my phone to help me remember because pregnancy brain is a real thing and if I don't write things down I will 100% forget them so before we get started I just want to kind of preface this video and say that I am currently pregnant I'm currently 23 weeks pregnant so almost 6 months there and I'll should go ahead and show you guys my baby bump so here is here is my month it's getting bigger and bigger every day which is really fun but before I got pregnant obviously I got pregnant 23 weeks ago before that I did have two miscarriages as well as a chemical pregnancy it took us probably about a year and a half to conceive through that and through conceiving this would not be the third time that I'm pregnant and through that period of time I do think that I have learned some things that were helpful to me I did do some things differently and so I did want to share those things with you I think first and foremost if this is your first time trying to conceive you haven't tried to conceive previously or anything like that and you're like now's the time that I want a baby it's happening here's the first thing that I would recommend to do the first thing is tracking your cycles and tracking your ovulation because that's very important in very key in trying to conceive is knowing when you ovulate because there's only a small window in each month where you can actually get pregnant so I would recommend using an app the app that I use I will go ahead and show you it is this little app right here with these flower on it and it is called period tracker that is the one that I use so basically you put in the date that you start your period the date that you end your period you track it for a couple months and then once the app realizes your cycle it kind of guesstimates at what time in the month that you'll be ovulating so obviously that's the time of the month that you would want to try and conceive um so that's like the first thing is tracking your ovulation I think the which you can do research on that and get into it there's lots of factors with like your body that will tell you when you're ovulating there's lots of signals that it gives and things like that and that's really important another thing that you could do is do the ovulation predictor kits personally we never did those and I never felt it necessary to use that it's basically like a little test almost like a pregnancy test and you pee on it and it'll tell you if you're ovulating or not so then you would know for sure when you're ovulating like I said we never did that that's something you can do though and then another obvious one but very important it's just be healthy um eating healthy drinking lots of water getting a good night of sleep just like getting your body healthy I mean your body if you're wanting it to create a child create life it needs to be at a healthy healthy state so I did do all of these things but with this third pregnancy one big diet change that I made eight months it was about eight months prior to me getting pregnant this time was going vegetarian and I completely cut meat out of my diet and by doing so um I eat very healthy and I tracked like things that I was like eating to make sure I was getting enough protein and calcium and all those things so I was eating a lot of grains I was eating beans and lentils and quinoa and all types of like just really healthy things smoothies I was eating really good and I wasn't eating any meat and I also limited my dairy a lot as well wasn't eating much dairy at all the only thing that I didn't cut out was cheese but didn't drink milk are things like that just really limited my animal products in the intake of that and I don't know if that was helpful or not but that is something I did and it felt really good on my body it felt really healthy and so that was one thing I did differently was going vegetarian another thing was I started taking vitamins and the vitamins that I was taking I have always been taking prenatals in the course because they say that you should while trying to conceive it's good to take prenatals and kind of get your body ready and but towards I don't know I would say maybe three months prior to getting pregnant I also started taking vitamin D as well as I think this is a really important one and I started taking maca so it's a vitamin called maca it's all natural and it's very good for you can do your research on it basically it's really good for women and men um hormonal II Josue actually was taking my husband was taking it as well because it's good for both male and female reproductive hormones and things like that so that was a lie that we dead start taking I'm pretty like I said probably two to three months before I got pregnant so was that helpful maybe so maka vitamin was something that we did differently another thing that I did was I switched over on I don't know how far before I got pregnant probably within six months before getting pregnant I switched a majority of my products household products skin care products to natural and became really conscious about for one of the food that I was eating making sure the food that is eating was organic and non-gmo as well as the products that I was using I switched my body wash my body lotion all of my skin care products you know my face wash face lotion but I do try to use a lot of natural products as opposed to if you look at the ingredients on things in the stores whether it be skincare or food you eat or something there's a lot of weird stuff in it and so I would do your research and try to switch over to natural products little by little and I think that can be very helpful all right another thing and I think that this next one out of all of the things that I did is the biggest and the most important thing and that is being stress-free relaxing and not trying if you will the thing with trying to conceive is it can be very consuming I feel like especially on the woman when you really want to have a baby you really want to get pregnant you want it so bad you're constantly researching things constantly doing things and I think that's good too you know be research and be educated on things that could help you to try to conceive but I think it's so important to just kind of let that go and not focus on it too much because trust me as somebody who it took a year and a half for me to conceive and in that year and a half I had two miscarriages had a chemical pregnancy and I mean it is tolling on you like on your emotions it's really stressful every month just thinking okay I'm ovulating now and then you get to the end of the month and it's like should I need to take a test and then you take a test and it's negative and that that is wearing on you as well I would recommend when you're trying to conceive to try to stay away from taking pregnancy tests I got to a point where with this pregnancy I waited until I was I think over ten days late before I tested because it started I used to start testing okay the day of my period if I Dennis turned my period I took a test and it would be negative and I started waiting to okay what if I'm one day late and then every month if I was one day late I'll take a test and it was negative and it's just like that is mentally um I mean you'll know if you've tried to conceive for a long time it like it's on for me at least it was almost better for me to not test and then just kind of okay I started my period I'm not pregnant okay fully let go and realize that okay this will happen and God's perfect timing it'll happen when it happens it's not healthy to stress yourself out and you're not gonna get pregnant by stressing and thinking okay I want to get pregnant I need to get pregnant now I need to get pregnant this month and stuff it's it's it's not healthy I will just say that and I think something for me that helped me fully let go it's like I said it's you can tell yourself yeah I would tell Mike people like you know my mom or my husband they would be like you can't stress on it and stuff and I would be like I'm not stressing on it and I feel like what really helped me let go was going on vacation if you guys don't know we went on a almost three-week vacation to Guatemala and I'm not saying you have to go on a threeway week vacation um out of country but um that really helped me relax I think taking a little vacation with your spouse if you can take a big vacation or not that's awesome but just getting away is really relaxing that you said if you guys don't know we went on vacation to Guatemala and it was the day that I got back the day that I got back I got off the plane I was late and I decided to take a test and it was positive just with preparing trying to get past my passport packing getting ready planning what we're gonna do in the on the vacation and then we were actually on vacation and I was really relaxing and I wasn't thinking about getting pregnant at all I was just enjoying the vacation and I think that was really big and that helped me I think to get pregnant really because I was fully relaxed I had fully let go getting pregnant wasn't on my mind and so I think that's out of all you can do my biggest advice to you would be to let go try not to stress focus on yourself and your spouse and being healthy and just spending time with one another and and then I think it'll honestly once you fully let go it'll happen in the perfect timing when you least expect it and I think that's key I also wanted to mention before I end this video this wasn't with trying to conceive but I did want to mention it because it's something that I did as soon as I found out that I was pregnant and that I believe was helpful and that is since I had the two miscarriages in the past on my most recent miscarriage that was my second miscarriage they noticed in my blood work that my progesterone was very low now this is kind of like controversial if you will thing on taking progesterone if you've had miscarriages because some doctors will say well your progesterone drop because your body was saying you're gonna miscarry where other people think okay well maybe I just have a low progesterone and my progesterone was low and that caused the miscarriage and so anyway with my last miscarriage they noticed that my progesterone was low so I asked if I could take progesterone I think it was already too late at that point and she prescribed me progesterone I started taking it it didn't do anything like I said I felt like it was too late and I ended up miscarrying and then four months later I got pregnant I still had that progesterone as soon as I found out I was pregnant the I thought I was pregnant really late at night when I got back from Guatemala the next morning I started taking the progesterone and I took it twice a day I took it in the morning and at night before I went to bed I do think that that was helpful I don't know if okay this pregnancy was gonna happen because it was gonna happen or maybe I was low on progesterone I ended up switching doctors and so I told that doctor that I'm taking progesterone and she basically told me like it doesn't matter you don't need to take it it's not proven to be helpful she said but I just myself felt more comfortable taking it so I continued taking it and I took it until they say that you should take it until you're like 12 weeks until you're out of like your first trimester but I ran out of it and my new doctor would it prescribe me anymore um because she said she doesn't think it was helpful but I took it until I was nine weeks pregnant and I do think that that might have that might have helped so look into that as well if you've miscarried um before I would recommend that maybe talking to your doctor about um when you get pregnant the next time to check your progesterone levels and maybe start taking it as soon as possible but that is all my tips and on trying to conceive so I hope that that was helpful if anyone out there watching this is trying to conceive my heart goes with you I know that it is such a it can be such a hard process um especially when you want to be pregnant so bad but hang in there it'll happen in God's perfect timing and it'll happen so my prayers are with you and yeah I hope that this video was helpful if you guys liked this video give it a thumbs up also be sure to subscribe to our channel to see some updates on my pregnancy and yeah [Applause] [Applause]
