Pregnancy Journey Part 1
Olla everyone, today I would like to share with you about something that bring me so much happiness. As a couple that have been married almost 3 years, we always wanted our own baby. Like many other married couple out there, we waited patiently. Well, last year I had an early stages miscarriage and both of us were very sad. I am three weeks pregnant when it happen. It is so sudden, one moment we re so happy that we going to have a baby and the next second we lost it. We are so sad that I didn’t even know how to describe of put it in words. As time pass, we accepted our fate and try our very best to move on.
We are so thankful that our parents are so supportive and our friends keep giving us motivation to stay strong and just go with the flow. We also took their advice. Some suggested that we both go for vacation so that our mind would be relax and hopefully easier to conceived.
So we did, we went to Tioman (twice) then we went to Cameron (also twice) then we went to Tasik Dayang Bunting in Langkawi (we heard that any couple that go there might increase chances of getting pregnant) , we went to southern thai then east coast peninsular for a road trip, then we went to Fraser hills and Penang not inclusive of the other staycation. See how hard we tried? Not that I am complaining. We do enjoy our vacation but we are not super rich that afford to go overseas every now an then. We are just a struggling newly wed couple and obviously we need to sacrifice other expenses, save here and there, be on a tight budget in order to have enough fund for our “baby-making-trips”.
Time pass, and nothing.. Are we too impatient? Maybe we wanted it so much that we cant wait n keep on hoping for a good news
Langkawi, Tasik Dayang Bunting
Not just that, we also tried drinking the adam hawa buah brought back all the way from Mekah great thanks to Johan’s auntie. Have you heard of it? It looks like coconut but super mini version of coconut. It is very hard to crack it open. We were told to crack it, then boil it in water and store the water and drink it continuously for a month.
If I list down all of the effort that we took and undergoes I might need to write a book not a blogpost.. hahaa.. Well, it is not that easy to get what you want and so we tried. Honestly, I do feel sad when ever I got my period. I am like what not again? T.T until the point I am like so worried that my husband might marry another if I cant pregnant so a loong period. Am I paranoid? Yes, maybe I cant help it.. the anxiety is killing me sometime.
Day by day, we prayed that we will be able to finally have good news and hope that Allah will grant us with our own offspring. Sometime, I cried in the middle of the night thinking and praying… “biar lah aku ni takda tak kaya, or tak berpangkat tapi berilah aku peluang menjadi seorang ibu “ T.T
Until last year on Sept, I went for a movie premier with Tammy. We were there enjoying the movie and out of sudden I felt the urge to vomit. Okay the thing is, a guy seating on the other side was wearing super intense hair spray and yes I cant take aerosol smells. It was soo pungent and I taught that the reason y I vomited in the movie hall… LOL Tammy was like, “illy, kau pregnant ka?” At that moment, I did not suspected anything.
Next couple of week we went for a Trip to Tambun, I was so happy playing around in the water. Then there is a super ganas water slide. I wanted to try it. It have to be 2 person and thank god that time Tammy said no she cant take that kind of ganas water slide. Being a degil girl, I went up carrying the tube hoping that they will allow me even if I wanted to ride it alone. Well, the guy said big NO since the minimum person for the water slide is 2 person as it involve stability and it is dangerous if I ride alone. ( I STILL HAVE NO IDEA I AM PREGNANT AT THAT TIME)
Then after that, we went back to KL go to work as usual and I got sick. I have no appetite to eat, no mood felt like having fever but days n days of fever. I taught my immune system is playing a prank on me so tend to ignore it. Then I found out that my period is late and went to buy pregnancy test. OMGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG!! It is I saw 2 line bebeyhhhhhhhhhhh… It was the happiest day of my life! How can I forget, 2 Oct 2013 at 11.58am I will remember the moment forever as I never felt that happy in my whole life.
I am extremely happy that I stunned for awhile and cant contain the amount of emotion that I end up crying in the toilet at my office. I never knew that human being capable to feel that amount of mix emotion. I am really2 beyond the sky.
That marks my pregnancy journey, I know from that moment things will never be the same again. I never look back and I try my very best to protect my baby. I am going to do anything I could to make sure my baby is safe and healthy. I am not a super mom or anything like that, to be blunt I dont know where to start what to do, what to eat what not to eat and so on.

I will link all the post once I have completed writing it up so that it is easier just incase you want to check it out. The main reason I decide to write capture my journey and share it with you, is that I would like to share my happiness and hoping that it will give some insight and maybe tips of those who trying to conceived or currently pregnant.
