In the heading "I ask for advice" the editorial board of Rambler publishes questions that concern our readers. Together we suggest discussing the topic that haunts our today's heroine in the comments.
My husband and I have been married for over ten years, and have been in a relationship for about twelve. A year after the wedding, both realized that they were ready to become parents, and soon I really got pregnant and gave birth to a daughter. Pregnancy, surprisingly, went pretty smoothly.
Four years later, when the baby grew up, we decided to have a second child. For six months, all our attempts were unsuccessful, and then we turned to a specialist. The doctor told us that it is too early to diagnose infertility and that we should try for at least a few more months. Finally a miracle happened and I got pregnant, but I had a miscarriage in the sixth week. It was very difficult for me emotionally. It was only thanks to relatives and close friends that I was able to cope with the loss. But I still have a fear that I will no longer be able to have children.
After a few more fruitless attempts, we successfully performed IVF. We only got three embryos, and one of them took root. And after a while, the pregnancy test showed the cherished two strips, but the time for the addition in our family was unsuccessful. My husband was diagnosed with a brain tumor, and my salary was barely enough for his treatment and to feed my daughter and me. And at that moment I made one of the most difficult decisions in my life - to have an abortion.
I didn’t succeed in getting pregnant again, but that doesn’t mean that I’m not happy. The husband has recovered, and the daughter has already grown up and is preparing to enter the fourth grade. Everything is going as it should.
