6 weeks Scan

Image
A very tiny little spot on the screen was seen and we were told it was the baby! A very very small dot inside this spot was vibrating and that was the heart beat! One of the most fascinating moments of these weeks definitely! It just made all those bad stomach experiences worth it! Oh the bad stomach days...

My husband and mother were there too! Like all mom's, my mom was almost in tears when she saw it. My husband gave a very sensitive smile. I know what he was feeling deep inside! And I, well, I was laughing out loud! That was the only thing that slipped spontaneously out of me! I guess, it was just the awe struck me, with how the nature works! And of course, the ability to make another human being is special!

Agony Tummy!

"I want something to eat. Have this... It is very tasty!!! I don't feel like eating it... Its been over 2 hours, have you had your mid meal? Yes, but there is something wrong with my stomach!  Do you want to drink something? No. Do you want to eat something? No! Let's make something fresh for a quick snack! Nooooo...."
This is kind of a trailer of how my conversations regarding food have been since the past week! There is so much of rummaging happening in my stomach these days! And believe me, it takes immense energy to keep a simple smile on your face with this condition! 
The only thing that has worked on me under such times is to get some work and it just switches off the effects for that time!! Ahh haa! What a feeling is that!! Of course, it only applies when you love what you do! :-)

Sleepyyyy...

There is this tremendous longing for a good night's sleep already! With my chronic Asthma, my nights are usually dancing between - sneezing, sitting up right, blowing nose, changing sides and if all is well, grab a little bit of sleep. After a long struggle through the night of this dancing, I finally get a little fatigued sleep very early in the morning!

But since the past 3 days this junior inside me is asking for more sleep! I can't believe the effects its having on me in just 4 weeks time! I am able to grab a power nap in the afternoons! And even though, it just lasts for 20 - 30 minutes without the sneezing et. al. cycle , it recharges me till my evening walk!

First gynecologist Meeting

By first gynecologist meeting I mean, first after the positive home pregnancy test. One of our preparations for planning the pregnancy was to meet the gynecologist to explicitly tell her of our plan. And even if we already knew what she had to say, it was something we feel was right to do!

While doing the ultrasonic, she spotted a small dot on the screen and said that, that was my sac! I started laughing and couldn't stop till a long time. I had made a list of questions regarding the upcoming 9 months. She answered all of them and ensured that I was satisfied! It's time like these that you realize how a doctor to whom you are comfortable with makes a difference! In my case, my gynecologist knew my parents even before I was born and I have always addressed her as my Aunt! I couldn't be happier that she is my doctor through out these months! :-)

The Positive Home Pregnancy Test

We decided to start trying for a baby on our 4th Anniversary which is in the month of May. What was a planned trip to match my ovulation dates (I used an online ovulation calculator - totally recommended!!!) turned out to be an extremely enjoyable trip for all other reasons! We chose a new place Gir Forests, and given our inclination towards exploring new places, we enjoyed doing that more! Based on our experience, if you wish to get privacy for this purpose, go to a vacation spot you have already been to!

The next month, we were on our own at home, thankfully!! It was unbelievable to see the accuracy of online ovulation calculator! The home pregnancy test report is positive on this very day!!! Both of us were together when I took it and it just made it that much more special!! :-)
