The beginning of a new life

Remember the no mood and tired spells on my earlier post I was having? We went to get our blood tests done last week and this week I have my generalist calling to congratulate us! He was going on and on about its a gift from God etc, then reality suddenly sank in was I put the receiver down. OMG!! We're pregnant!

Now the reason why I've not notice anything sooner was, its been normal for me to miss a period or two. But then again it doesn't really explains why I was having mood swings, sudden increase and loss of appetite and getting tired often even if I've not done anything that takes that much energy! Silly me, should have suspected something there....

Called my mum after calling hubs (who was equally stunned), and let me tell you about a "gila" nenek to-be. She was really excited (more than yours truly who is letting reality sinking in S-L-O-W-L-Y) and was going on and on about us leaving our precious one over in KL for a few months of the year etc, etc.... I was like "Woah! We're talking about a foetus now and NOT a full grown (and born) baby!!" Apparently she's been planning this for quite a while now... Sneaky mum!

When hubs got home, he has this silly smile on his face and kept on asking me, "When? Sure or not?" while looking stunned. Now hubs is a guy who is a normally rational guy, who thinks rather like Dr. Spocks at time and by all means logical (as all men claimed they are). I can not understand why is he asking these questions now, when he knows that all this while we've been trying. So why when I break the news to him, it seems like all Martian to him? Hmmmm.... Could be the way of how I broke the news to him online on my MSN, "you're going to be a papa". He kept on going "Sure or not? Is it really affirmative or not? Do the test again tonight".... At this point, I'm surprised he didn't ask me "How did that happend?" Why do they do that, I mean asking us silly questions when they know unprotected sex leads to pregnancy sooner or later.... No wonder they say men comes from Mars and women from Venus, we speak in totally different meaning! Unless of course if the sentence meaning is clearly outlined by us!!

So I'm feeling a little crummy at the moment. Let's just hope that this crummy feeling will go away soon, as I do not like the feeling of tiredness, gumpiness, indigestion (which produce loads of gas for me. Malunya when I go out!) and the frequent trips to the loo (not for nausea though, THANK GOD!). Friends told me (those who had had babies) that being pregnant is the most wonderful experience a woman could ever have. Well I'm yet to see the "wonderful" part yet. The idea of having stretch marks doesn't really appeals to me further into my pregnancy, which reminds me, need to get a new swim suit to "cover-up" them up! As I said before women will always be vain, no matter how old or what shape they're in....

I think what they really mean is bringing a child into the world that is really wonderful. But then again the idea of delivery pain really scares me now.... Or may be I should not be thinking too much for the moment, but just to savour it as it comes; no real diet but a balanced one (I could have pizzas at night!), shopping for new clothing and baby stuff, looking for names and having extra attention from hubs! Ah.... Better savour it while it lasts...

Hi Shanny,

I've been checking your blogg periodically since you sent me your site in May this year. I only checked it in September so imagine my surprise when I looked tonight and saw your exciting news.

I hope everything goes really well for both you and the baby (and hubby). Congratulations.
