I'm Expecting Our Second Jewel

Hello Peeps!

It's been some time since my last entry in this blog. I've been reluctant to write a post because for the past one month, I was not feeling so well, weak and dehydrated. Remember I posted about my post-contraception side effect on my facial acne? Well, my period had been very irregular and it was difficult for me to conceive. In fact, it took me 1 year of trying to conceive until I recently found myself missing my period. I did not suspect myself pregnant as I thought my period probably delayed again. I gave up because my pregnancy test was negative. But when my period was still not coming a week later, I gave myself a try to test again. I almost burst into tears when I saw two lines - meaning positive pregnancy!

I quickly booked my first appointment with the gynae doctor. As stated by the doctor, my period was irregular and the dates were all wrong. From the scan, baby's size was about 5 weeks only. Meaning, I was pregnant somewhere in July. I was praying that I don't have to go through the same pregnancy symptoms that I had last time during my first pregnancy. But, unfortunately, the symptoms came even earlier this round. I started experiencing nausea and excessive vomiting since the 6th weeks. I vomited about more than 10 times a day when I decided to annouce my pregnancy news to my family on my husband's birthday on 25th August.

I was so sick that day and the next day, I was admitted for drips to rehydrate myself. Seriously, this is the worst symptom of pregnancy ever! People concerned about eating too much during pregnancy, but I'm worried that I'm not eating and drinking enough because almost everything make me nauseous - especially plain water. OMG! And, whatever I took, my body will know what to reject. From my few times experiment, my stomach rejects cocoa (chocolate), acidic fruits like orange, curry and dhal and sunflower seeds. It's surprising because my stomach only rejects certain food because when I vomitted, only certain food came out.

And, the pregnancy hormones make my stomach over-producing acid. I felt uncomfortable all day long. I'm not experiencing morning sickness but all-day-long sickness. Horrible feeling. Now, I had to rely on anti-nausea drug especially early morning because I just can't tolerate anything without medication. Early morning, after waking up, I will definitely throw up the acid collected in my stomach overnight after I drank some water.

I'm so worried of dehydration. I can't escape from this because the last pregnancy I was dehydrated as well due to excessive vomitting. Poor thing. My husband also got used to this as compared to my first pregnancy. He said, he doesn't know what to do. Haha!

Anyway, I hope one day both my son and ?son/daughter will be able to read this. So that they know how much sufferings and difficulties their mum went through to bring them to this world. Haha
