My Mom Journey
One of the best things that has ever happened to me was becoming a mom. I always knew that motherhood was something I truly wanted and I thought that when the time came I wouldn't have any issues. I thought that it would be easy. Boy was I wrong!
Becoming pregnant was never a problem. The issue was staying pregnant. Before my baby girl came along, all healthy and perfect, we had four losses. I was overs 40 years old after my second loss and I was determined to find out what was happening to my body.
Typically, OBGYNs would suggest a fertility doctor after the third miscarriage but I bypassed that thinking since I wasn’t a spring chicken or young in terms of motherhood. I had a full hormone and genetic testing done. The results were surprising.
It turned out I had a blood clotting disorder that when pregnant could cause a blood in the placenta and then a miscarriage. The solution for that was daily injections on the abdomen of Lovenox (not cheap). I also tested positive for one copy of a genetic gene mutation called MTHRF or methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase and my partner also tested postive for MTHRF but for two copies. This genetic mutation can cause several things to happen in the body but in terms of pregnancy, it reduces the ability of your body to convert folic acid into a usable form.
We all know that folic acid or folate is extremely important for the health of an egg or embryo and that a lack of folate can cause neural tube defects such as down syndrome, spinal bifida and other syndromes and disorders.
Also, in women it can cause infertility, miscarriage, preeclampsia and much more. Since people with MTHFR cannot convert folic acid into a usable form it is important to eat a healthy balance diet and even to supplement with folate (5-methyl THF) and B vitamins.
I had already started taking prenatal vitamins without folic acid (synthetic form) after reading Dr. Fuhrman’s book, Eat to Live and had introduced his prenatal vitamins without folic acid into my daily regimen along with 5-methyl THF (natural form of folate).
We thought for sure our time had arrived for a baby. The third time I stayed pregnant but his time for only 20 weeks. Our baby boy was riddled with problems; from Trisomy18, spinal bifida, water on the brain and clubbed hands and feet.
The fourth loss was at 5 weeks. Two things I still had after all these losses was hope and a determination.
So I dove into doing more research on how to improve my egg quality. After doing more research I found out that people with MTHFR have difficulty eliminating toxins from their body. I thought it would be most beneficial that I detox my body and change my lifestyle drastically.
I realized that everything including what I was cleaning with, digesting, using on my body such as creams and soap to my everyday thoughts had to change. The four areas I needed to detox was (1) my home (2) outer body (3) inner body and (4) my thoughts.
After my complete detox, it finally happened! I gave birth to a beautiful and healthy baby girl.
I’m no doctor by any means but I’m a firm believer that my detox made a huge difference.
