I am approximately at 39 weeks of pregnancy now. The next adventure of life is about to begin soon. The due date is somewhere between 18 to 20 of September but the gynae has been saying that I might deliver early which is 12 Sep, today. However, i don't think that will be happening as there is no sign from the baby to see the world just yet. Baby is so enjoying Umi tummy.
To recap on the pregnancy story, well, it was a planned one. We've been married for almost 8 months and people has been asking, of course. The normal questions that married people stress themselves with such as are we able to get pregnant plagued our minds. To cut the story short, in the end we are successful. Yeay. Alhamdulillah.
Pregnancy start with a little emotional roller coster. Somehow, stupid things make me cry. Poor Q seems to be confuse with the situation. Then, it was the lack of appetite. On some days, i can just survive with a big fat Karipap through out the day which i munch little by little. Once the appetite and the emotion is getting better, Q is ready to go for his next sail. But as Allah has planned, "The Accident" happened. A Mercedez from an opposite direction lost control and hit us point blank. It's a really traumatic moment that i carry with me until today. Driving especially at night is never the same anymore. At four monhts pregnant, i broke my left clavicle. So, i was thinking, if bone fracture is this much of pain, i really can't imagine labor pain which was described as having 9 or more bones crushed? (T_T)
After 1 month of medical leave, pregnancy resume smoothly. Appetite was good, Q went away for work and I catch up on work as much as i can before maternity starts. At around 5, 6 months pregnancy i think, the sleep start to get affected. Ever toss and turn followed by what felt like a muscle pain at the lower abdominal. And now at 9 months, it's at it peak where sometimes i can't even turn and need help on that. It might be due to my lack of exercise, which i intend to do now that I've started my maternity leave.... better late than never. :P
Pregnancy is really magical. I tried to gain weight for the past 29 years to no avail, but with 1 pregnancy I've gained total 16kgs to date. I never knew i could contribute so much to a baby weight that baby is 3.2kg now.. So doctor was warning me that if it ever cross the 3.5kg .. then we will set a date for induce incase normal labor pain/trigger did not happen. I am kind of OK with that since i know a few people who induced, and the reason given by doctor is logical. We do not want the baby to outgrew it's exit passage and the risk of baby eating their own poo once they are overdue.
Well, everybody have their own thoughts and opinion. I believe every one has their own share of story, but whenever we make a decision, we just stick to it. Of course, I would prefer to have it "normal" way and know whether I am a "blood show" or "water break" kind of person. But I trust that doctors knows best too. The rest, we leave it to Allah.
Till then. Hope to see you baby, soon.
