First Prenatal Visit

Had my first check-up yesterday.

The doctor’s clinic opens at 10am to 1pm. The OB-Gyn, Dra. Reyes, was recommended to me by a friend.

I went there with my husband at 10:30am, we were 8th on the list and the doctor was not yet around at that time.

The secretary recorded my weight and blood pressure. A whopping 63 kilos! And 100/80 BP. Then she asked us to wait.

11am passed. Ok, she’s an hour late. Maybe she’s just finishing her rounds. We should wait a bit more.

By 12pm, people were already piling up. I’m starting to get hungry. What the hell’s with this doctor. Doesn’t she have any sense of professionalism?! Afterwards, I asked Sam to grab something to eat.

At last, she came after an hour later!! Yay!

Yup, she came at 1:15pm even though it was posted that her clinic hours’ 10 to 1pm. Wow. I was already thinking if I should still give this doctor a shot.

By pass 2pm it was already my turn.

She examined me and determined I’m prone to miscarriage or “mababa ang matris”. Sorry I don’t know the english. It’s like the womb is low, maybe. She prescribed me the following:

Isoxilant -a uterine relaxant which is to be taken three times a day

Folicard B+ =folic acid + B complex

Enfamama A+.

She also advised me to rest throughout the holidays. I’m not even allowed to travel. Since my work is 2hrs away from home, I’m not allowed to go to work either, yet.

I will have my first TVS (ultrasound) and urinalysis on January 5. She will then determine if I’m already fit for travel.

I hope baby Killua will be fine. (i think it’s a boy!) 🙂

CD 30 / 4th week

Tested this morning. I was expecting to see two lines, however, it was clearly negative.

One line.

I had a 3 second reaction of WTF?!!!

………….

Then I looked at it closely and saw a very faint second line until it turned out something like this:

So a faint positive is still positive, right?

Or is this just evaporation line?

No. This is definitely a BFP.

CD 29

I had a very very very light spotting, the color is almost pink. I hope it’s implantation bleeding and not the start of my period.

Have yet to see a positive result, my friends advised me to wait a few days more since it is still early and the test could probably not detect hcg levels yet. I’m wondering if it still couldn’t detect it already now that I’ve been having a lot of symptoms.

Just wait. Or maybe not.

Tomorrow. I’ll have the positive test.

CD 28

I know and feel that I am pregnant, even though it still doesn’t show in the test, but my husband is not taking me seriously!

I have not been late for 3 days, ever. I know it might sound too early for some but I can feel all the symptoms now. If I’m not pregnant, I should still go to the doctor somehow cause I might be sick. I feel cold all the time like I’m having a fever, been feeling bloated all day, I’m always hungry but don’t have the appetite, not to mention that my breasts are too sore. Worse of all, I always feel like throwing up. If these aren’t symptoms to some other disease, I don’t know what they are cause I feel really sick right now.

Somehow, I feel alarmed cause I’m not taking any prenatal supplement yet, except for folic acid which I bought at Healthy Options for 450pesos for a bottle containing 250pcs.

I want to schedule a checkup to the OB next week, since I won’t be going anymore to the office until January 5. We only have 3 working days left so I decided to just take them all for a leave since travel to work is about 2hours from home (we live in a boarding house and come home to my parent’s house every weekend), it’ll just be a waste for going to the office for such dates (December 22, 23 & 29). Gasoline is pretty expensive here, besides, our boss already had his vacation of his own so he probably won’t mind. And I’m too lazy to work during the holidays anyway.

I’ll probably take another test tomorrow whether Sam likes it or not. By the way, this day marks my fourth week of pregnancy. 😛

CD 23

My regular cycle is 26 so I’ve got a few more days to expect aunt flow coming. Can’t I take the test now? Ha!

Like I’ve said, there were no further symptoms so I’m guessing that I’m not pregnant yet this month. I’ve had more symptoms last cycle but unfortunately my period came exactly on the expected date, so I can’t be really sure.

Anyways, I like to show you my calendar.

This is the app that I use to calculate my ovulation date. As you can see, my ovulation date is around December 2. That is why we made a lot of baby dancing before that date (almost everyday). Those with little hearts are the dates in which we made BD.  (25-28,30,2). I thought this month was hopeful since it is better to have sex before ovulation than during or after since sperm can stay in the body for 2-3 days, while the egg can only be fertilized within 24 hours. However, this app is not 100% accurate so it is probable that December 2 is not my actual ovulation date.

I’ll update as soon as something comes up. (hoping it’s not aunt flow!)

Acidity or Pregnancy?

I’ve been having the urge to vomit since yesterday (feels like throwing up but does not actually vomit). I had a mug of coffee this morning (and also yesterday) so I really don’t know if its from acidity or that I’m actually pregnant. I have cut my caffeine intake these past few months. I have no other symptoms so I’m not having my hopes high. We made a lot of baby dancing the week during my ovulation, but I’m not really sure since I’m only using an app to calculate my estimated ovulation day. Im not temping or observing CM either.
I really do hope that this will be the month. The timing would be perfect. Lots of holidays so I dont need to take a leave at the office. I know this sounds crazy but I’ve been buying maternity clothes for the last few weeks. But I don’t want to expect that much as contradictory as it sounds. I’ll try a dose of fertility supplements next month. I’m thinking of fertility blend from gnc but I heard it is quite pricey in our country. Well, it would’nt hurt to try a bottle I guess.

One more week though…

Am I pregnant or is it just plain acidity?
