Some of you may have already known about the news of us expecting a baby. I’m on my week 9 now and to be honest it has not really sink in yet that a life is growing inside me. We’ve already seen our baby’s heartbeat but still I can’t really digest yet the thought that this is really happening. November last year we were already planning on a baby but then the months that have passed left me mostly disappointed so when March came I have decided that I was not going to get my hopes up. I have been having irregular period for two months already and when by April I got delayed I really didn’t make a big deal of it. I even had two bottles of beer because I honestly didn’t know I was already pregnant. When I got 5 days delayed we finally had the test and there we saw the two lines. We finally hit bull’s eye.
We’ve been having problems though. I was placed in 4 weeks bed rest as I was being diagnosed of subchorionic hemorrhage. It was hard being in bed rest. I was not allowed to lift things, to go up and down stairs, stand up for too long, cook, wash the dishes… etc. It was hard to rely everything to E. We have divided our task and because it’s just the two of us at home all the work goes to E. He has been very great even with the cooking. I know it’s not easy to be taking care of me. I’m just glad I have a husband who works hard to take care of me and our embryo.
Anyway this is a huge step for us. Hopefully by the time the baby comes the house is already finished. So I’m really hoping for a safe pregnancy and can’t wait to finally see our baby and hold him/her.
