clusivol OB early pregnancy

Happy News and New Life Role


If you've been wondering what's keeping me away from writing on this blog and sharing with you some awesome beauty stuff... Well, at first, I thought that my lethargic, nauseous state was just brought on by PMS... But as days went by that my period failed to make an appearance, I knew there was something going on inside my body that is far from what it has experienced in the past.

I suspected that I might be
pregnant... But given that I've failed on that front for the past 3 years, I thought that my period could just be delayed. I didn't want to assume. Afraid that one of these days, my period will come.

A few days more and I knew I had to take a home test. Just to be sure. Watsons proved to be helpful with all the pregnancy test kits on display. No need to ask the staff for it. I grabbed Blue Cross pregnancy test kit. One that you wouldn't need a pipet or urine cup. It's a simple pee-on-a-stick device. It took only seconds to show the result...

Two bold stripes appeared effortlessly! I called the boyfriend to let him know and he couldn't suppress his excitement! I went ahead and told my cousin, Ericka, and my dear friend, Nikki. It was a moment I wanted to share. But with Nikki who has gone through the same thing, I wanted some assurance. She gave them to me wholeheartedly!!

I called Clinica Manila at SM Hypermart for their next OB schedule. By 1pm, I was at their waiting room... When I saw Dra. M, I immediately told her that I suspected that I might be pregnant. She asked me when was my last period, how I was feeling the past few days and checked up what up with my baby-making parts. All led to her to confirm my assumption that I am indeed pregnant. She ordered for me to take blood tests, fasting blood sugar, Hep B screening and a Transvaginal Sonography.

I had the TVS done at Clinica Manila, too. Thank God they had an OBGYN Sonologist coming in that day. Dra. D did the procedure and as the device flashed what's up in my uterus... I teared up. She confirmed that I am indeed pregnant. About 5  to 6 weeks by the look of it... All doubts, fears just fell out of the window. They disappeared.. I am going to be a mommy!

On October 1, 2013.... I welcomed a very good news. One that we've been praying for for a very long time. I thought that I won't be able to have kids... I thought my body isn't functioning right and I was near to a point of getting fertility treatments. Decision to take on freelance job is also brought on by the fact I wanted more time to take care of myself to prepare for pregnancy. I didn't realize that I was pregnant during those times!

I know it is too early to announce it... But I am claiming it already! I am going to have a baby!

Now I'm dealing with a lot of things. The dizziness, nausea, the constant fear of vomiting and that awful taste I have in my mouth every time I eat anything. It's a miracle I can keep anything down.

I'm also dealing with choosing healthier meals, eating more fruits and veggies and of course more good protein in my diet. I've been advised by Dra. M to take Clusivol OB. I didn't know they have those. And of course, folic acid was also advised to be taken for the next 30 days. So far, that was it. I was advice to drink more fluids, make healthier food choices and get enough rest. :)

I already started with shopping some food even though I don't feel like eating anything at all! Citrus are also great for early pregnancy I read. Under my cart I bought fish and chicken. The crackers are for times I feel nauseous. I also got ProMamma by Wyeth for calcium. :)

How can one be so happy and excited while on the verge of throwing up and feeling as if her world is spinning as she types this blog post? :) I really feel blessed despite the haywire hormonal changes in my body. I just wish I can do my best for this baby.. I want to be the best mom for him or her. :)
