Being pregnant is such a joy to every parents especially to the mothers who are carrying the little miracle in their tummy. The moment you saw those two lines in the pregnancy test, you know your life is about to change forever!
Constant change, that's how it will be for the rest of 40 weeks. You have to be ready and be prepared for a roller coaster ride..I'm sure most mummy's and pregnant women like would agree to this.
My journey to pregnancy wasn't easy, I would say that the first 3 months was indeed a joyous yet breath taking roller coaster ride.
I found out I was pregnant last week of October following my birthday. We were so delighted and ecstatic knowing we were expecting. A birthday wish come true for my husband and I (both birthday in October).
I was at my happiest but something is tormenting me...What if it will happen again?I couldn't possibly bear it anymore! Following a miscarriage, being pregnant again couldn't be more distressing! I was so stressed BIG TIME!
I was worried all the time, every little unfamiliar change and deja-vu on the previous pregnancy tormented me. Morning sickness was just as bad as the previous, I was so fussy with food and so scared of moving about. Because of my previous MC my GP signed me off from work for a month for observation. I was a bit relieved as I could rest well while the baby is developing out of the danger zone as they say. Not a day goes by that I am worry free, everyday I have to tell myself to be strong. I talked to my baby everyday to keep fighting, be healthy and be strong for me. And above all what made me survived is my FAITH, that my GOD is a good GOD, he is with me all the time and He will grant the desire of my heart. Provided me with a loving family, such a great husband who is with me all the way and said he wanted to take this journey with me no matter what.
And so here I am a thriving 21 weeks and 3 days pregnant. Not so long to wait now. More that half way through 40 weeks :). I passed the tricky 1st trimester, morning sickness gone, sensitive smell gone, being giddy, and most all I am worry less. I had my 12week scan which came out good, saw my baby for the first time and saw heart beating was superb feeling. Here are some photos of the 1st scan
