Yes, you have understood the title correctly, God has given us another miracle! After months of trying, thank God, we finally saw the 2nd line in the pregnancy test!
Unlike my pregnancy with Louise, this time we waited for a couple more weeks before seeing a doctor. This is for us to save money, time and avoid what we call the ‘waiting game’. Those couples who had the first scan very early and weren’t able to hear the heartbeat yet can relate to this statement – “Congratulations! You’re pregnant but we need to check you again on this date so we can really tell if you’re going to have a baby!”. We’ve been here and it sucks!
You see ladies, positive pregnancy result tells us that we’re pregnant but it doesn’t show us the status of our baby inside. Lot’s of things happen inside our tummy, that’s why having a baby is a miracle, right? So, to see the two lines is to believe, to hear the heartbeat is believing more!
And in our case, doctor checked it and there it is! He or she is beating 110 per minute, quite slower compared to Louise’s before but still a sign of a healthy baby!
I bet this is going to be Louise’s reaction the moment she will see her younger sibling, excited to have a 24/7 playmate and BFF soon!
How am I feeling right now?
I was 4 weeks pregnant when I found out and honestly, I want to eat almost everything that time! Now, 6 weeks, I welcome again the food aversion, I started vomiting already but thankfully I can still eat little by little.
‘BE POSITIVE’ is the most common phrase we say to pregnant women but honestly, we need more than this from you guys. Those people close to us are aware of what we’ve been through when I was pregnant with Louise, it was scary, right? And I’m honestly more scared right now! Based on the ultrasound result, I have been diagnosed with a Subchorionic Hemorrhage , very small (0.21cc) but the doctor still required me to take Utrogestan (pampakapit).
So please pray for our baby, that he/she will stay strong and grow healthily inside. Help us pray as well that hopefully, this time, I’m not gonna have that terrible morning sickness, scary bleeding episodes, traumatic hospital admissions and depressing months of bed rest!
So why we still decided of having baby no.2?
According to Fred, based on experience, it’s lonely to be an ‘ONLY CHILD’. And I don’t want Louise to grow up with that loneliness, longing for a sibling relationship which I’ve been enjoying all my life for having a brother and a sister (thanks to my hardworking parents). We know it’s scary for my part but Louise must have a sibling, it is worth a risk indeed. Besides, Fred and I want to have a second baby to take care of, to cherish and to love. We also miss diaper changing moments you know!
So yeah. we’re having baby no. 2 soon and may God hear all our prayers!
