My pregnancy was wonderful but not very easy. I had complications. I did not know until two months of gestation. At first I thought I was only having some minor allergies. But when I noticed a swelling on the left side of my neck just above the neck bone and felt a little pain when I put pressure on it, I was bothered. So my husband told me to see our family doctor in Fort Worth immediately.
To make the story short, I went through a biopsy where the doctor took a some tissue sample. And I was diagnosed for an infection. My therapy began immediately as soon as the type of infection was known. Then I quit work because I developed Plantar Fasciitis that gave me a hard time walking. My feet were swelling and painful. I was not able to stand for a long period of time anymore at work. So I was advised to have full rest as my pregnancy progressed. Soon enough on the second trimester of the pregnancy, my feet began to feel better. And then came Gestational Diabetes. But it was carefully controlled by proper diet. Whew! My body had a wild reaction with the first time pregnancy.
My physicians were great. They took very good care of me, the pregnancy, and baby. I was blessed with strong support system and efficient health care.
