I Thought I Couldn’t Have Another Baby Anymore?!! πŸ™ƒ

Hello beautiful people! πŸ™‚ ❀

It’s been a while.

I’m pregnant you know. Yes, 9 weeks already (approximately).

Dan-dan-daaaaaaaan!!! πŸ€— πŸ€—

I had NO idea. At all!

First off, my fallopian tubes are blocked. When I had my daughter (B1 πŸ’—) my doctor already told me there was a dermoid cyst blocking my right. A few years ago I had myself checked [because we wanted another child and nothing was happening] and I was told then that both my tubes were blocked.

At the time I was already in my late 30’s, so I was really sad as you can imagine. I was advised to undergo an operation or an IVF if we really wanted another child but, since my husband was then already working abroad and I believed my age was against me, I let the idea go.

Symptoms and excuses.

I first thought I had hit an all-time low when, seemingly overnight, I just didn’t feel like doing anything. I didn’t want to exercise. I didn’t want to knit, or crochet. I didn’t want to read. I didn’t want to blog. Everything was just painfully un-interesting. I feared the worst. A friend told me to just embrace the blues and give my brain a rest from fighting boredom.

Then came the “hangries” as I call it. Voracious hunger accompanied by a burning pain in my stomach that would not cease unless I ate a complete -and large- meal. I started to think I was developing an ulcer (or some type of digestion problem) from my attempts at intermittent fasting.

Then I felt very tired, as though I was recovering from some sickness and I just didn’t have any energy reserve left. I chalked it up to having stopped exercising and resolved to start again “tomorrow”.

Then everything, including drinking water, started to taste icky. And I felt my food was threatening to come back up my throat after every meal. This is when I told my husband something weird was going on.

“Would you like me to buy a pregnancy test on my way home from work tonight?” my husband asks one morning. (This was around my 7th week of pregnancy).

I say, “okay, but just to eliminate that possibility, I know it’s an ulcer”.

Boy, was I in for a surprise!

pregnancy-test-2

Answered prayers.

I was incredulous! I sought a second test and when that too came out positive I wanted to ‘see’ the position of the embryo because I didn’t think it was possible. But my very happy husband said he had been praying so, it was possible πŸ˜ƒ

I do not even know when my last period was πŸ˜… Can you blame me for not taking note? All this time we’ve been without care and protection and nothing happened … till now! 😁

I need to conclude this post now because it’s very long.

So here I am using “B2” as an excuse to not cook (among other things) πŸ˜† πŸ˜† because the mere act of slicing an onion has the power to render me useless with a headache for hours.

But, ever since I went to the doctor and was given pregnancy vitamins and have been drinking ‘mommy formula’ my level of energy has been improving. I also hope to be able to have the “hangries” under control because really, at this rate I’m going to be a beluga whale by my second trimester 😨

So this is all for today.

I have another wonderful news but I’ll keep that for some other time because now I need to eat πŸ™„ πŸ˜†

I hope you are all well and experiencing your own miracles in your lives.

Till next post.

Be blessed! πŸ’– πŸ’‹
