So last Saturday I posted this alongside with...
This picture on my FB to finally reveal that SR and I are expecting our first baby. Woohoo~ 🎉🎉🎉 Yay us wtf
So I won't go into the full story of how we found out about the baby coz I wanna record it down in the main blog. Coz all my life stories are there. But not many people read that blog so I'll briefly talk about it here.
I am currently in week 12 (plus 3 days to be exact). According to my "What To Expect" app and book, I'm still in my first trimester. Most people doesn't reveal their
pregnancy until the second trimester. But we decided to spill the beans since our Jigglypuff (yes, that's the name for now) is stabile right now.
So I found out that I was pregnant in August. I was already in six weeks at that time. I did like three pregnancy kits in two days to be extra sure (more on this in my main blog). Even then I was still in disbelief, I told myself maybe hormone imbalance la. Wait for a few days then only go to the doctor to see whether it's real or not.
Two days later I went to my ob&gyn and he told me that pregnancy kits are 99% accurate so I'm definitely pregnant. The box of the pregnancy kit also tells me that but I just couldn't la.
The arrow is to show SR what is what lolol. He didn't go to the scan with me coz he was working on that weekend. So I had to explain everything through phone and whatsapp.
Obviously both of us and mummy who went with me were overjoyed to find out the news. I was getting teary and extremely emotional.
Then the doctor told me something that made my heart drop. He said the amniotic sac (or better known as water bag) which contains the embryo is not properly implanted onto uterus wall. There is also a blood clot in between the amniotic sac and placenta. This is the cause of the improper implantation la. The blood clot is bigger than the amniotic sac and embryo. So if the blood clot ever dissolve and pulls the amniotic sac with it, I will then have a miscarriage 😭😭😭
It was like heaven and hell for me that day. So happy to finally found out that I'm pregnant. Then also finding out that I might get a miscarriage all on the same day. I didn't know how to feel that I just spaced out after.
Doctor gave me some pills to treat my threatened abortion. Yes, this condition of mine is called THREATENED ABORTION. It sounds so cruel and scary. Why do they use the word "abortion"?
He also advised that if I'm not doing anything, just lay on the bed and rest (which is
called semi bed rest). I'm not allowed to carry anything heavy or do heavy work. No exercising and no stress.
After two weeks I will have to visit him again for further checkup.
Went for my second checkup and scan with le hubby this time. If you compare the previous scan with this one, you can see that the amniotic sac and embryo (I've circled the embryo in red) had both grown quite a bit...which is good. The improper implantation and blood clot has not cause much problems. But the blood clot is still there and didn't reduce in size.
So the doctor gave me another round of pills (called Duphaston) with the same advice as the last time. He also told me if during the next
checkup, the blood clot doesn't get smaller or disappear, I will have to take a jab to dissolve it. But the jab is risky coz dissolving the blood clot = could cause miscarriage.
All I could do was pray that the blood clot would go away on its own. I don't want to take the jab and risk losing my baby.
You guys probably read here that I get migraines/headaches and fever very regularly. I asked about it and found out that some pregnant women get headaches/migraines instead of morning sickness. I'm one of the unlucky/lucky few. Lucky coz I don't have to vomit my guts out. Unlucky coz these migraines are worst than the ones that I usually get.
At this stage of pregnancy, I didn't tell many people about it. I told Puff who had no experiences of being pregnant at all. She couldn't help me or give
any advices. My mum didn't have my improper implantation problem or blood clot. Neither does she have migraines so she wasn't much help. Honestly I was feeling pretty depressed every day at this point of time. I felt so helpless and useless.
I had migraines for days some times. Migraines which last for two to three days straight. I didn't take any medication coz I previously heard that you can't simply take anything when you are pregnant. So I just let the migraine go on for days. Had to take
leaves from work for so many days just because of that.
Later on Puff suggested that maybe I should tell my whole gang about my pregnancy. There are so many mummies in the gang. They could probably help me. So I did. Thank god I did too. Coz I found out that Liz had the same problems as me when she was preggers with Logan. Got so much help from her and also the rest of the mummies gang.
This is the pic that I've posted previously. This was when Jigglypuff was in week 10. Jigglypuff had officially graduated from embryo to fetal stage.
The doctor showed us the heart and the it was beating like damn fast...which is a sign of healthiness la. Blood clot is still there but thank goodness Jigglypuff had outgrown the size of the blood clot...meaning I don't have to take the jab 🎉🎉🎉🎉 As celebration, Jigglypuff did a little body wave for us. We regretted not taking a video coz the fella
freaking active and dancing the whole time. SR and I had to stifle our laughter coz the way Jigglypuff danced reminded us of the time when we would do stupid dances to annoy each other at home all the time. Jigglypuff must have learned the dance from us.
This was last Saturday's scan. Like I said Jigglypuff is now 12 weeks or 3 months. You can't see the fella as clearly as the previous scan that's coz this fella is chillin' with the head facing the front and legs hanging upwards 😅
Something like that lolol
The moment we saw this, hubby nudged me and said: "look the fella is sleeping like you" 😅😅😅😅
Yeah I do sleep in the fetal position quite often...with my legs curled up in the midair 😅 even when I'm pregnant 😅😅 Kena scold every time my dad or SR catch me hahaha.
Btw the happiest news is the blood clot had completely disappeared. Meaning there is no miscarriage risk as of now. So that is why both of us decided to reveal the pregnancy to everyone.
Since Saturday I've been feeling sick 😷 I have an throat infection. I couldn't take most of the medicines. The doctor just gave me Vitamin C and some Vit C drink. I also have a stuffy nose which the doctor said is caused by pregnancy so he couldn't do anything.
Had a migraine from Saturday night all the way till Sunday night. Finally took a paracetamol which my doctor gave an okay to. I'm allowed to take one every four hours. I took one, the migraine disappeared for a while and then returned.
I decided not to take anymore pcm (paracetamol) and just sleep like a usually do when I get migraines.
Today I'm better but still suffering from that throat infection. Hurts so much when I talk. Thank god my students all didn't come today due to public holiday. I don't have to talk a lot because I don't have to teach. So my throat rested quite well...I think. Hopefully by tomorrow it'll healed 100%
