Time Flies! An update.

I am as of today 36 weeks pregnant! Time flies indeed and yes I won’t deny that I’m slow/lazy when it comes to updating my blog. The last post was in March I think and that was 5 months ago! I was busy With my apprenticeship at the hospital and as well as my part time job. I also have a couple of minor issues in my pregnancy so I had to take it easy and take a rest.

Summer here in Norway has been very hot and dry. It almost drained my energy. Imagine, I’m carrying a living creature inside me and that has already elevated my body temperature. I almost collapsed at my working place because of the heat. Do not also forget my blood pressure was very low. Thank God that my boss and colleagues are very understanding of my situation. And thank goodness also for my GP and midwife for taking care of me. I was in and out of the clinic for the lab tests and conversations with them because I was worried for my baby and myself too.

As I’ve mentioned above, I’m 36 weeks pregnant. Compared to the previous months, I’m obviously bigger and heavier. My colleagues said that my tummy looks small for the 3rd trimester but according to my OB gyne, my baby is growing normal. She ain’t too small for her age. As a matter of fact, she’s a bit heavier for her gestational age.

Anyway, time for me to hit the sack. 🙂 To be continued tomorrow.

I am pregnant!

When I found out that I am pregnant, I got speechless and surprised. I thought that the two lines on the first pregnancy test strip was just wrong. So I took another one and it showed the same. Me who was still in shock and disbelief, took the last test strip in the box. The result was still the same. The first thing that got into my head was my goodness, I’m pregnant! I did not know what should I do first because this is my first pregnancy if ever. Even if the strips told me that I am indeed pregnant, I still denied that it is true. So I bought another pregnancy test kit on the same day, this time a more trusted one and guess what, it turned out positive as well. Not only the last test kit showed positive, it indicates also how many weeks I was on the way. According to the result I was pregnant 3+ which means I was already 5 weeks.

So am I happy? Well the thought of becoming a mom is a good thing but scary. Imagine, I am carrying a living human being inside me! But I am happy! Specially when I saw the reaction of my partner. He could not believe it himself too, but he wants to have babies already so the news made him really glad.

The pregnancy was confirmed by my doctor. The HCG test from the clinic matched Clear Blue’s test kit. I was 5 weeks pregnant he said. Then he asked me if I wanted to keep this. Of course I said yes. I think the reason he asked because he wanted to know if I wanted to abort the pregnancy, since abortion is legal here in Norway as long as the pregnancy is not older that 12 weeks.
