Rockin’ it since 2004, My husband and I have been together for a long time. And I am very proud to say that we’ve pass different “legal” steps in our relationship. As college sweethearts, we graduated, found our jobs, then comes our wedding and now the pregnancy. No “teenage pregnancy” for us. We’re both very traditional that way and maybe because we never want to disappoint our family. I’ll say its very comforting to have the “legal” feeling. That in every step of the way, in every happenings in our lives, people are happy for us.
Anyway, for my very first PREGNANCY post…
Three days after our wedding we headed to Davao City for our 1st honeymoon. And let me tell you that based on my calculations, all the time that I spent there, I am on my most fertile phase.
I have a very timely period of 28 day cycle and so when I missed my period comes February, I have somewhat a feeling that I am pregnant.
Here are the very first symptoms I noticed prior to missing my period:
- Hungry most of the time
- Achy, tender breast and nipples
- Always tired and sleepy
I took my first pregnancy test 4 days after I missed my period and It was a BFP (big fat positive!) honestly, I had mixed emotions. Suprised because my husband and I discussed that If its meant to be It’ll happen for us and If not…
History: Back in 2006 at 18 years old, I had surgery to remove my left ovary due to – Endometriosis – displaced endometrial tissue continues to act as it normally would — it thickens, breaks down and bleeds with each menstrual cycle. Because this displaced tissue has no way to exit your body, it becomes trapped. When endometriosis involves the ovaries, cysts called endometriomas may form. Surrounding tissue can become irritated, eventually developing scar tissue and adhesions — abnormal tissue that binds organs together. Endometriosis can cause pain — sometimes severe — especially during your period. Fertility problems also may develop.
Because of this medical issue at such a young age, My parents was advised by the doctors that I should have a child at an early age to avoid fertility problems and increase chances of conceiving. But again, my parents – being traditional didn’t pursue.
And so, back to suprise… My husband is prepared with the situation of us being childless. Whenever someone ask him how many children we’d want he’ll always say: God’s will. And I guess it really is His will because we got our Honeymoon baby!!!
But then there’s this other feeling: Disappointed with myself because I felt that I still want to do many things career wise. I still want to travel and those things that “no child yet” woman do and dream of.
But in general: Very happy, thankful and blessed because well, the baby may be life changing and all but this is what makes us a Family.
There goes my random thoughts as I enter the world of pregnancy, I am still very new to this so bear wih me if you will.
And soooo, the pregnancy journey began! Let me share something motherly to you on my next posts…
