I always wanted to be a mommy and all I had were the heartbreaking search results that told me it would be a gift I might never receive.
When I was 17 I was diagnosed with PCOS and told because of it and my size I would be unlikely to have children. I always wanted to be a mother, it was my biggest dream.
Jesika bought into all of the plus size pregnancy myths and assumed she’d have a difficult pregnancy and birth due to her size.
When Michelle posted her, I didn’t know I was pregnant story, on the Plus Size Mommy Memoirs Facebook page I immediately wanted to know more.
My husband and I had been trying to conceive for about 6 months or so and I was really starting to think it would never happen again. We were blessed with my chunky 10lb baby boy 4 years ago, but my c-section birth I had with him was not what I had planned and I yearned for a VBAC.
I am sharing my story because I found great comfort in reading the memoirs of other mommies who had delivered naturally, especially women considered plus-size.
Many people believe that twins must be before via c-section. However, it is possible for plus size women to birth twins vaginally! This is one story….
By the six month mark, I decided I wanted to have a home birth myself, and spent some time warming my husband up to the idea of it. Eventually he got on board and decided to support me to have whatever type of birth I wanted.
