What’s been happening?

26 Jun

It’s been a while since I’ve written anything, and it’s because I’ve been too busy being so tired and trying to find a new apartment. As soon as I arrived I talked to my husband about relocating because I was never really happy with our current apartment and now I can’t imagine continuing my pregnancy here. First issue: sunlight doesn’t hit the rooms we sit in and we really really need that. I am so easily affected by my environment, and quickly became depressed when I moved here over a year ago. Also, we have to walk up long straits that exhaust me! Good enough reasons for me! Anyways, we finally found a place with big windows that will allow lots of sunlight, woohoo! I had my 10 week ultrasound a week ago in order to make sure everything is ok before stopping progesterone & estrogen. Oh how amazing was it to stop progesterone! No more panty liners please! Bambino was doing just fine…and wiggling and moving on screen as usual. Heartbeat was a stable 165, didn’t really go up much since my 8 week ultrasound. Now I’m getting ready to move, as well as have my 12 week check up to first stop metaformin and second to make sure everything is ok before announcing this pregnancy to the rest of my family members.
I unfortunately have found out that I also will more than likely give birth here. Actually, its like a 95% that I will be giving birth here. Giving birth in the states means that I will be staying atleast 3 months there which my husband cannot take off of work to do. How can I not have him there through the rest of the pregnancy and possibility of missing birth? I can never do that. My parents have made a fuss of it, but I will not have him missing anything. So here I am, now praying baby continues to be safe and that I will be able to give birth in the best possible location for my baby. The 12 week scan is this sunday, and I pray to god everything goes well so we can finally share the news with the rest of my family and closest friends.

    I’ll be thinking of you on Sunday! Try not to worry about where you’ll give birth and how superb the hospital is – remember there are women out there giving birth in mud huts! InshaAllah with a good midwife and doctor you will be fine. (You can totally tell I work for an international development charity hehe)

    Wishing you sooo much luck for Sunday. I’m glad you blogged as I do wonder how you’re doing. If you’d like to keep in touch away from the blogs, my email addy is fertilitydoll AT gmail.com x

    Happy to hear everything is going well! I look forward to hearing about your 12wk scan — any day now! It’s a big turning point! Have you had a lot of symtoms? Are they starting to wane?

    Sounds like a tough decision about the delivery – but being with your husband does seem like the most important thing.
