My name is Satobia Ivory-Godinez and this is my story; I am a 27 year old mom from Memphis TN, with two beautiful children whom I love very dearly. However I’m that person that does not experience pregnancy well. Like other women who adore and love the whole bonding with my baby thing for 9 months, eating what I want and having special treatment from family and friends; I was less fortunate with that experience. At the age of 19 I was pregnant with my first son and had him February 2008. During that pregnancy my start out weight was 185 pounds, I lost 42 pounds during that pregnancy. I was very high risk and diagnose with severe vomiting and dehydration. You would think I learn my lesson and not get pregnant again, but I met my husband and wanted to start a family with him so baby number 2 comes July 2012. During that pregnancy I lost over 43 pounds with the same symptoms as my first baby, but this time I had a stay home nurse who came to check on me every week and to keep my tube clean that was inserted in my arm to pump meds in me 4 hours in a day to keep me from vomiting because I was unable to hold any liquids and food down all through my pregnancy. This had become a burden on me because I was unable to work and all my time was in the hospital. I practically lived at Methodist Germantown until I had my baby. My due date was August 22 to be exact but I had to have him a month early due to my complications. I was lucky to have him to come out to be a healthy baby at 4 pounds. So you see I didn’t want to experience this anymore so I talked to my doctor about a permanent birth control and she advises me to the ESSURE procedure. She explain to me that it was a quick process and all I would have to do is come in office get the procedure done and get a second birth control for 3 months and come back in and see if I healed good and the procedure was a success(May 2014 is when I had the procedure done). Which I did that and was I fine until a month later from me going back in I started gaining weight excessively and my eating habits were the same. In this process I was seeing my normal physician about the weight gain he put me on diet pills and instructed for me to cut back on my eating and no fried foods along with exercise 15 minutes out the day. At this point I was at 242 pounds in July 2014, going back in November 2014 I was right at 282 pounds and I did all that my doctor instructed. We were puzzled to why I wasn’t losing weight and still gaining. I was starting to get depress but my depression was not normal. I was crying, for no reason, lashing out my family for no reason and most of all hating myself so much that I feel like I want to die at times. I can’t even look in a mirror without break downing, not to mention going shopping for myself and completely melting down in the store and embarrassing myself. I blame all this on this essure mess cause before this was apart of my life I was young healthy and happy woman. Women I say this to you who doesn’t have it and thinking about getting it; DON’T DO IT!!!!!!!!!! THIS IS A SERIOUS MATTER AND DON’T RUIN YOURSELF BY MAKING THE WRONG DISCISION LIKE I DID!!!!!! JUST SAY NO AND TURN AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
