*BE WARNED THERE’S A LOT OF EXCITEMENT IN THIS POST*
Can u see that? It’s like a micromini sac, measuring approx 0.9cm. HAH! So TINY! I showed this to my mom and she said this is what I looked like too. AWW….
The doctor also did a UPT, just to confirm my pregnancy, and yeaay! This was my 4th urine this morning and the line is a lot darker than last week (which is a good indication). Yes, it was 8.30pm and I already peed that much. Oh, the perks of your uterus expanding and suppressing the tiny bladder.
Now, I can stop worrying about believing whether or not I’m really pregnant, because, I can just stick the ultrasound image on the wall to remind me that I’m pregnant. Seriously, I always forget that I am, and ended up running up and down the stairs (yes, I literally RUN up & down the stairs, it’s a habit of mine). And then I’d feel paranoid for a second. Eddie has to always remind me to take it easy.
She’s (he or she) is not a fetus yet. More like an embryo in a tiny amniotic sac at this stage. I think. Whatever it is, this one already seems like a one tough fella. He/she will just shrug whenever she face the toughest challenges in life, and move on like a badass. Yes, be sticky, and grow big, little one! Mummy’s gonna enjoy her last moments feeling free(ish) before morning sickness kicks in. ha ha ha
Anyway, I’m officially 6 weeks now. And the estimated due date is around November 7. I thought that would be a nice birthday present for the father of this baby. Imagine, a son/daughter for a birthday present, whaaat! Hint: I better get a kickass birthday gift this year!
*sigh* so many joys of life that I have to give up until this baby is out. Like coffee; caffeine makes me urinate even more than I already am. and then, there’s sushi. OMG. I don’t know how am I gonna live without sushi. andwhen my baby grow up and read this now, I’m sure she’ll shed some tears of joy, because damn she’ll know how much I LOVE sushi! and I just got a fixed gear bike, which I have to ride with caution! and if possible I want to ride the hills, let my hands go and slide down the hill, feel the wind penetrate my hijab and feel FREEEEEE hahahaaha (dramatic much?).
and most of all, the joys of eating without worries. Now, I eat everything with caution. I keep asking myself if it’s good for my baby, does it have too much MSG, or preservatives in it.. bla..bla..bla… So much to learn, my brain has expanded twice its size since I suspected I’d be pregnant.
Gosh, it’s unbelievable how fast I got pregnant. We just decided to try mid January (after much contemplation on my end). And by the time we decided, my ovulation had already passed, so last cycle was out. Then, we tried for the first time in following month, and after a lot of baby dance (haha) and du’a, we scored! Way to go swimmers! I’m so thankful to Allah that we don’t have to go through painful challenges just to conceive, and I hope I’d be blessed with wonderful (and I mean less torturing) pregnancy and this baby will come out beautiful & healthy. Aminnn
