I am on the 15th week of my pregnancy now. Yes, I have gone through the sickening first trimester stage but there are still cravings and little nauseous stories every day, so I am not completely okay suffering-wise. Lol. However, I do feel and look very pregnant now, and the hormones are certainly making me thrilled and overjoyed each day that passed.
On my 13th week, my OB-GYN ordered for a dating ultrasound and we were given 6 sonogram images of our little peanut to bring home. Say hello to the 4th member of our family (fourth being that this is our second child):
Oh how precious, right? I can’t help but be thrilled every time I hold my tummy and realized that there is one precious creation within me. Simply amazing! The experience, the second time around, is equally exciting. And the even better thing this time is, the happiness is not only from me and the husband, but from the big sister as well! When we got home from the ultrasound, Ate Triz had to pick the phone up and dialed her Lolo and Lola in Las Vegas broadcasting to the old folks that she got to see her baby sibling on the screen and she was so thrilled! It’s still surreal for her, but she always tells me that she needs to be acting as a good big sister for her little sibling. Oh… I feel so blessed with this daughter of mine!
I got brokenhearted though last week when my doctor’s clinic called me to tell me that the ultrasound result showed that everything was normal, except that I have a Placenta Previa case. This happens on rare occasions when the placenta, which is usually attached to the upper part of the uterus, away from the cervix, lies low in the uterus, completely blocking the cervix. The reason I have this is because my uterus has shrink since I gave birth to Triz over 5 years ago. But, my doctor assured me that it’s not a problem; that when the baby grows bigger, usually, the placenta will return to its proper place before the due date. And if it doesn’t, Cesarean delivery will be the option during childbirth.
It does sounds scary to me, but I trust and I am positive that everything will turn out well for me and the baby. So far, there are no symptoms that I feel could be cause(s) of worries and next week is another appointment to see my care provider so we’ll see if there is anything to be worried about. My best consolation is that my housemates are 100% caring of me that as much as they could, they don’t want me to do anything straining and draining. At all rate, I am lucky and blessed, that despite the pregnancy blues, I am still a happy preggy!
