It’s Alive!!!

So I had my first check up a couple of days ago. [I really wanted to write about it as soon as I got home but I’ve been feeling tired and nauseous all the time … ] My friend went with me to the clinic since she knows the doctor. 
When we got there, there were 9 other patients waiting. That’s a good sign, apparently. Because this doctor, she’s very in demand. You come at 5 pm, she’ll be able to check on you by 9 pm. That’s how many patients she gets. So anyway, we waited and played monopoly on iPad. 
Then the assistant called my name. 
Asst: Babymama… babymama…
Me: That’s me, here!!
A: Babymama??
Me: yes …
A: Baby. Mama??!?
Me: yes, that’s me. 
A: You? You are babymama?
Me: YES!
So the nurses took my BP, my weight and other important details. Then they did the ultrasound. They couldn’t quite get the image so they used the dildo like thingy and poked my lady parts with it. 

It’s alive!! It has a strong heartbeat too! See the lines? and that tiny tiny speck? Well, that’s the heart. All the other nurses were really happy to hear the heartbeat. I think one of them even cried. Maybe. I imagined myself really getting emotional when I get to see my baby… but, nothing. I smiled like a dork. I was excited. But no tears. I wonder why.

The hubs said that it has a huge head. Well, that’s not the head. Based on my LMP (last menstrual period), my baby should be 8 weeks old. But the ultrasound says its only 7 weeks. I kinda felt bad because this means my baby won’t be born on my sister’s birthday.

I know its so trivial but you know… hormones. I’m just happy that everything is ok. When the doctor called me in, she gave me meds just to make sure that I don’t lose the baby. She says that its better to be very careful since I’m already past my 30’s. Plus I have borderline blood pressure.

I was advised that I could eat everything except: sweets, carbs, fatty food, processed food, shrimps, crabs, squid. Cake, chocolate, ice cream.

Basically eat everything except food. So excuse me while I chew on my pencil.

Can’t wait to get through my first trimester because it really sucks!!   So excited!!
