And when the cheapest test in the pharmacy couldn’t convince me, I went out and bought the most expensive one.
Yup, it still says the same thing. 🙂
The pictures above were taken on March 15th. I am now 14 weeks along and still finding it surreal.
How has it been thus far? TOUGH.
At exactly 5 weeks on, the
morning sickness whole day sickness kicked in full force. I was still in Malaysia (and for those wondering where my husband was, YES he was back in Malaysia too to attend my sister’s wedding). 😛
The plane ride back to Italy was by far the worst experience EVER. I did not sleep a wink, and threw up no less than 5 times. I had the foresight to ask for an aisle seat, so I didn’t disturb fellow passengers. But I think the guy next to me got pretty freaked each time he saw me reach for the airsickness bag. I did manage to throw up in the toilet every time though. The air stewardess servicing my side of the aisle was less than helpful, and didn’t even bother asking if I was alright even though she saw me gagging and standing by the galley with the airsickness bag in hand. All she asked me was “No breakfast?” to which I shook my head. The smell of coffee and breakfast being served made me want to cry as I was (still am, actually) super sensitive to all sorts of scents.
The past month was one helluva roller coaster ride. I threw up everyday, from morning till night without fail. There was once or twice I threw up so much and couldn’t even keep down water, and was so weak I was lying down the entire day, and couldn’t even walk to the kitchen to get me some food. The husband, travelling as always wasn’t around to help out, and that made me feel shittier than ever. I would wake up like clockwork around 4am to throw up. 😦
It has since gotten a little better over the past 2 weeks. I still throw up every morning without fail, but at least that’s better than throwing up the entire day.
That said, I did throw up thrice today. Hmm.
I have not put on any weight, in fact, lost 3 kgs from my pre-pregnancy weight, and now am slightly under my pre-preggers weight. Sigh. When you wanna lose weight, nothing happens, and when you wanna put ON weight, nothing happens either! Funnily enough, though I’ve not put on weight, I have ditched my jeans as I am beginning to show a little and my usual clothes are too snug around the tummy making it hard for me to breathe!
My gyno checks back in Malaysia and Italy have revealed a perfectly healthy bub, and during the last scan we had last Saturday, we saw bub waving his/her arms around! The doctor even told us the sex of the baby 😀 At 13 weeks, that’s pretty early. Although I’m quite sure he’s right, I’m not revealing it yet till further scans confirm it. A number of people on Facebook have told me that their early scans have revealed different findings on different occasions. *roll eyes*
So there you have it, biggest news of 2011 (for me anyway 😉 ) I have not been updating simply because I had been feeling downright CRAPPY. Let’s hope I move away from pukey land soon. It’s about time! After all that rambling about me feeling crappy, let me set things straight; the hubs and I couldn’t be happier and more grateful for this little gift! Thank you Lord!
