  • A Positive pregnancy story

    I have not been on the forums for some time now, bt I felt the need to stop in a look up some new recipies and wanted to share my story for those who need some hope at any pregnancy point

    ..I'm currently 37 weeks pregnant, I suffered no morning sickness as of yet and no flare as of yet and had been in a bit of remission b4 the pregnancy with only experiencing urgency or frequency if I tempted fait wit a food I shouldn't of eaten. I also have been blessed with being able to control my ic with just monitoring my diet but god the pain if I ever strayed..

    Anyway..I was told many specialists and yrs ago that if I was going to have kids id have to seek aid I do not ovulate on my own,,so I was on birthcontrol o also help regulate things..I never skipped a pill and low and behold god gave me a little miracle. Even the dr said god must of felt it was time for me to have a baby becus he couldn't explain it.. I've had terrible moods swings and cry and get upset ovr everything but other than that until last week the pregnancy has been normal, wats getting me down now is the pelvic floor disfunction, the discomfort and pain from the muscles is impresivley painful, ias for the I c I've been able to eat pretty much anything including pickles and thank god becus its the only craving I've really had but I still stay away from orange,lemon,or tomatoe products that carry the most acidic things in them just to be safe,,as of this week I m going back on the diet pending my expected due date so I m not thrown into a flare (or hope afterdelivary) I'm planning on having a vaginal delivery, I don't wanna take any chances with a c section and adding more surgery onto that area bad enough ima need a catheter...

    I hope this story finds and gives some peace of mind to those who r facing infertility issues as well as wondering if its possible to go ur entire pregnancy feeling a bit normal (mind the hormones) the worst I deal with now is going to the bathroom often cus the baby is in position and ready to go..

    This disease does not define me, but it is a big part of who i am. The IC diet is no longer a diet, but a *Lifestyle*. I accept i have limits but, i give myself new challenges everyday. With each breath, every prayer, and a new day. I believe this lifestyle will adjust to ME, and not me to it!

      That is wonderful. I craved ice cream a lot when I was pregnant. Some people say they crave salty or sour things, but I only craved potato chips once and that was it. I loved all the milkshakes and icecream.
      I too wanted a vaginal delivery and I was going to try to go natural but I ended up getting an epideral and then I needed a catheder.
      Anyway, best of luck to you and the baby! Boy/girl? Any names?

          Jenn
          28 yrs old,

          I have little to no problems now with my bladder, unless I am very stressed out, I forget to take Elmiron for a few days, or I eat or drink something that I know is a trigger...(i.e) like eating a tomato or drinking tea.... Took a long time to get here, but it IS possible to feel good again I just want people who are new to know that IT CAN get better, and for every one person who is suffering, there are hundreds of others who feel GREAT because they have control of thier IC.

          What Works: Tylenol 3's, Pyridium, Elmiron (Going on 4 years now!) HOT showers!!!

          Medications/ Vitamins: Elmiron-100mg 4x's daily Tylenol 3's/Advil (flaring) Vitamin D, WILD salmon oil 4x gels in the morning, Women's ONE a DAY multivitamin (the gummy kind doesn't make me flare) and PROBIOTICS!

            everything happens for a reson

            I winded up going in labor 2 weeks and 2 days early,,I planned a normal birth,,everything was going great didn't even ask for the epidural till 7 hrs in labor finally we relised I wasn't dialating anymore,, we tried waiting it out till the max time and baby became slugish so 17hrs later I'm being rushed in for c section...

            After they got her out I felt a shooting pain in my left side hard to imagine being completley numb right?..the dr had already closed me up and had to go back in ...removing wat seemed to b a 7cm cyst in my left ovary (they knocked me out of course) when I woke 2 1/2 hrs later I was told they also had to remove most of my left ovary and sent it all out for biopsy cus there was an additional growth,,,come to find out it was a benign tumor..thank god for the c section..I lost a lot of blood and was enemic(still m) the baby winded up being 10+lbs and ovr 20inches...she was having a hard time breathing initially it was a long hospital stay

            I'm still recovery and back on the ic diet faithfully, the pain is normal for everything I been through the dr says,, but wat I find so inspirational of all this...my biggest worry was my ic and my pelvic floor issues,,nvr occured me or my child would b in danger, I completley forgot about all that.. everything truly happens for a reson..god bless my dr
