Confirmed. I am really pregnant!

All the while I thought that once you see the two lines on a pregnancy test, you’re already viable for pregnancy. I didn’t know that tests and ultrasound needs to be done to confirm that you are indeed pregnant.

The moment my husband and I found out that we made it, we called almost all available clinics within Las PiƱas to check if there will be someone who can accommodate me. Funny thing was that, I found out I was pregnant on a holiday, so most likely, all OB’s within the Metro are out on a holiday or is not accepting appointments unless you have to deliver a baby. Good thing I found a good OB who is very masipag and was kind enough to accommodate me on a holiday. The moment we arrived the clinic, she interviewed me about my medical history, and prescribed me the vitamins I need to take all throughout my pregnancy.

I wasn’t scheduled for an ultrasound yet, because she told me that it’s too early to check if there’s already a progress inside my tummy. Few days after my check up, I experienced some cramping and she immediately scheduled me for an ultrasound. I was too scared that time because I’ve been reading a lot of negative stuff online regarding the “cramping”. (Could be ectopic or early M/C. Akkk! Oh dear Lord.) Little did I know is that the cramping I felt that time was pretty normal because it wasn’t really severe. Medyo praning lang talaga ako.

So I had my first ultrasound last Nov 5 and was advised for bed rest for a week. I was quite sad when I found out that the baby is not yet there, because as what my OB said, it’s too early to detect the pregnancy, since I was only 6weeks pregnant that time. The feeling of uneasiness and anxiousness almost ate me up, because I was already expecting a little bit of progress inside my tummy, only to find out that there is no fetal pole and heartbeat yet. The impression below: " To confirm pregnancy viability " gave me too much worry, but then she assured me that everything will be fine and the size of the 'sac' is the normal size. So there's nothing to worry about. 

That's the sac. 

And so she advised me to come back after 2 weeks to check if the embryo will be implanted. It was a dreadful 2 week wait, and I really had a hard time thinking of positive thoughts and I tried to stay away from reading and participating in forums. Thank you to my friends and my husband who support and continuously feeding me with positive thoughts.

Come November 23 - my 2nd ultrasound, due to super excitement and anxiousness, it’s as if I would suffer from diarrhea (haha) just thinking what would be the results.

And thankfully, all our prayers have been answered, and our little blip has a heartbeat already! Yolk sac and the baby is already there. Now, I am indeed pregnant and there’s already a “new life” inside my body.


Thank you Lord for letting me experience one of your greatest miracles in life.
And so that’s it! For sure you’ll hear from me soon about my pregnancy journey.

We passed the test!

After more than a year of trying to conceive and hitting that mark, my hubby and I finally made it! We were able to pass the test we've been taking for more than a year, and we just received and saw the 2 lines we've been waiting for. I'm positive, and proudly pregnant.

Did you know that the first PT I bought was defective so I wasn't convinced when I saw the two lines
that appeared on the test. So I bought a second PT to check if I am indeed pregnant. And when I saw the
two lines that appeared on the test, I still couldn't convince myself and bought a 3rd one. For the record, since I still  couldn't believe that my husband and I made it, I bought a 4th one. ahaha! :D

If you are wondering why I couldn't convince myself that we hit the bulls-eye, it's because I was diagnosed to have a Polycsystic syndrome which make it hard for some women to conceive a baby. I even underwent a D&C to clear my uterus lining last April so it would be easier for me to conceive. I was even prescribed some meds to induce ovulation which I am required to take every cycle. 

Just when I felt the pressure and stress of trying to conceive a baby, I then decided to stop taking medication and going to my OB regularly. My husband and I tried the natural way, and just enjoyed the baby making process without tracking my period and ovulation date. Who would have thought that the month where we finally decided not to track my Aunt Flo (period) and ovulation date is the same month where my husband and I would finally conceive! God is really wonderful and really answers prayers just in TIME. 

So if you're trying to conceive for more than a year, and starting to lose hope, do not stop there. God has better plans why he is delaying those two lines. Just keep the faith and hold on to his promises. 

So that's it! :) This will be a new journey for me. I pray for a safe 9 months of pregnancy, and I promise to keep this blog updated more often with my NANAY to be journey. 

Baby dust to all!:)
