- A woman, Natalie Selin, thought she'd never be able to have kids
- Selin gave up on having a baby after a failed round of IVF and countless tests
- However, two weeks into her new relationship, Selin fell pregnant
Natalie Selin was married for four years and throughout her marriage, she and her hubby never managed to conceive.
Selin underwent several tests and a failed IVF round, Parent24 reported. Doctors came to the conclusion that Selin would probably never have children.
“I was 33 years old and single, so I gave up all hope of becoming a mom,” she admitted.
The beautician and her then-hubby decided to call it quits on their marriage and Selin started dating her current partner, Chris Harries.
After only five dates, Selin knew Harries was the one and she wanted to make things official between them.
They had been seeing each other for only half a month when Selin found out their one night of passion resulted in a pregnancy.
Selin was diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) when she was just 12 and she knew she would have trouble conceiving.
“I’d just come back from a holiday with my friends, I was feeling knackered, I felt swollen and my breasts were hurting but I thought it was due to PCOS,” she said.
One of her friends encouraged her to take a pregnancy test which revealed she was nine weeks pregnant.
Selin said she was stunned by the result and immediately phoned Harries.
Harries said he could not believe it at first but they agreed to meet up the next day to talk. Selin and her bae are now the proud parents of a beautiful boy called Grayson.
