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. 😛
