I know some might say it’s still very early, but I can’t help it, I just HAVE to share the good news 🙂
I’m going to be a mommy 😀
It’s still surreal when I say it to myself but both the husband and I are over the moon! When I tested positive on the home pregnancy test, we immediately set up an appointment with my gynea. While waiting to see her in the waiting area, the husband was so nervous that you’d think it was him who was pregnant, LOL!
As soon as we were called in, we explained our little situation to my gynea and after a little Q&A, she excitedly ushered us to the scanning area. She proceeded with the scanning and the next moment she exclaimed “Dah ada! Alhamdulillah!!”.
The husband and I were staring our eyes crooked at the screen going.. where?? what??
She pointed it out and as sure as the sun shines bright, there was my baby-to-be, ever so tiny but definitely there. Exactly 4 weeks old, measuring 5mm big, my first reaction was “THAT dot?”
That got my doctor laughing as she replied, “Yes, that beautiful little dot”.
Anyway, my gynea was the sweetest, she got as excited as we did and at the end of the appointment gave me one big congratulatory hug (totally unexpected). I don’t care what anyone says, I’m sticking to this doctor!!
Here’s my very first baby scan. He/she is so tiny, probably just a couple of cells at the most. I’ve put a little yellow circle around it so that you all can see 🙂
I welcome as many tips and advice from everyone as I am in fact rather nervous about the whole upcoming months. What should I eat? What should I NOT eat? Are there restrictions to what I can do? My job involves a lot of traveling and physical movements, is that ok?
I guess I will ask around and read as much as I can to put my worries at ease, do my best to take it all in stride and also do everything that I can for my little precious.
For now, I’m just all smiles 🙂
