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 Piñas 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.
|NOW THERE'S OUR LITTLE BABY! ♥♥♥|
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.
