A ‘holistic’ fitness star who thought she may never be able to fall pregnant due to debilitating hormonal problems has just announced she is expecting.
Sydney-based Sarah Stevenson, a vlogger who is better known as Sarahs Day, has spoken openly in the past about her hormonal problems and how difficult it would be for her to convince.
Miraculously, the 25-year-old is now 14 weeks pregnant and recently shared her good news with fans with an emotional clip on YouTube.
The start of the clip sees her sobbing into her hands while her gorgeous pup attempts to comfort her as she explains although her and her boyfriend ‘hadn’t really been trying’ for the past two weeks she had been feeling ‘really, really weird’.
‘I felt my period was coming, and I was two days late. And just for the sake of it, I took a pregnancy test.

Shocked: ‘My gynaecologist said that if I ever wanted to get pregnant I would probably need help and that it would be hard for me,’ Sarah said
Sarah said part of her shock over finding out she was expecting was because she had experienced ‘a lot of issues with her hormones’, including ovarian cysts and cervical dysplasia.
‘My gynaecologist said that if I ever wanted to get pregnant I would probably need help and that it would be hard for me,’ she said.
Although the fitness star said she is ‘obviously happy’ because her dream in life is to be a mum and be pregnant, she was also really nervous ‘because ‘she had so many things coming up’ and was unsure how being pregnant would affect this.
‘Some people who I work with are not going to be happy with me. But I guess that’s life really,’ she said.
The 25-year-old said her and her boyfriend of a year, Kurt, hadn’t actively trying to get pregnant
The 25-year-old explained although her and her boyfriend of a year ‘hadn’t really been trying’ for the past two weeks she had been feeling ‘really, really weird’
‘A lot of my friends and my aunties have said there’s never a 100 per cent perfect time to get pregnant and have a baby – there’s always something that’s just not right.
‘But the main things count. I love Kurt and our relationship is so strong. We just bought a house, an apartment, and it’s really big and spacious.’
Clearly struggling to come to terms with the exciting news, a tearful Sarah said she didn’t quite know how she would function because she didn’t want to do anything wrong.
‘Oh my God, this is all coming into reality,’ she added.

The holistic health blogger broke the news of her pregnancy a few days ago on social media, sharing a stunning snap of her and her boyfriend celebrating their good news.
Naturally, her thousands of followers were clearly overjoyed with many offering their congratulations.
One woman, Kayla shared a touching message which said: ‘This video made me bawl. So beautiful and no other person more deserving!
‘I have followed you for quite some time. You are real, beautiful and even without knowing you, I know you are an amazing person. I am so excited for this journey! Congratulations.’
Sarah said she had experienced ‘a lot of issues with her hormones’, including ovarian cysts and cervical dysplasia
On a previous YouTube clip, the vlogger revealed how she healed herself from cervical dysplasia.
She explained while she takes an active approach to health, any recommendations were taken under the guidance of her gynaecologist and naturopath.
‘My love and passion in life is healthy eating and I really believe that food is thy medicine,’ she said.
Sarah said a strong commitment to health and well being helped heal her body
Sarah revealed a routine pap smear in December 2017 revealed she had a high number of ‘abnormal cells’ and further testing left her with a cervical dysplasia CIN 3 (High Grade) diagnosis.
While a number of options were presented to her including surgery, she asked her medical team if she could delay this for a period of time.
‘Can you please give me a time frame that I can just dedicate to eating healthy and just changing my life and try to heal my cervix naturally.’
‘My love and passion in life is healthy eating and I really believe that food is thy medicine,’ Sarah said
She said over the course of three months she totally revamped her nutrition and her lifestyle and her supplementation.
A return visit to her specialist revealed that while she still had some cells present, her condition was downgraded ‘possible low grade’.
‘Which means there is possibly some abnormal cells on my cervix. And if I keep doing what I am doing, that by the time I see him again (which is now) it’s possible that I will be completely clear.’
