“Having a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart walking outside your body” – Elizabeth Stone
“I had my period delayed which rarely happens, i felt so tired doing stuffs i normally do, i was gasping for air after taking a few steps on the stairs, i felt like i’ll be having my period which never happened. What’s wrong with me? Am i sick or im just old?”
Those were the feeling and the questions on my mind before i decided to try a test. A pregnancy test that is.
So what made me decide to take a pregnancy test?
- Tender, swollen breasts – yes
- Nausea with or without vomiting. – yes
- Increased urination. – yes
- Fatigue. – a big YES
- Food aversions or cravings – not really
- Slight bleeding. – yes
- Cramping. – no
- Mood swings. – no
- Dizziness. – no
- Constipation. – yes
6 out of 10 signs were a yes so we bought one and it turned out positive, much to my parents and my partner’s delight.
I’m 13 weeks as I write this, and i found out that I’m indeed will be having a child on a Friday the 13th (June 13, 2014). Who says Friday the 13th is unlucky? For me it was a very lucky day indeed. It’s like winning a lottery.
I had a few bleeding so we had an ultrasound on my 6 weeks and here how baby looks like:
The little peanut 2 weeks after already looks like a baby with his/her head, arms and legs. I never thought that in 2 weeks he will grow up so fast and that’s the probably the reason why my flat tummy before now looks like i swallowed a little pillow.
Me when i was on my 2nd month and it’s already obvious. I wonder why other moms doesn’t look pregnant in their 2nd month. I must be having a giant kiddo. Haha!
Today i had my baby’s heartbeat checked and we can now hear it using a Doppler, a device that they use to listen on baby’s heartbeat.
6 more months and we’re gonna see our little one. I’ll be updating this blog for this wonderful journey as i now start a new chapter in my life.
