This is a bit of a déjà vu. Feels like yesterday when I made the same announcement via blog: p
Guess what people. I’m 3 months pregnant *alhamdullilah*Anyway the pregnancy came as a huge surprised to me and Lan. Wasn’t expecting it at all but we’re excited nevertheless.
I found out when I was about 3 weeks into the pregnancy. I had the same feeling as when I was pregnant with Ryan. The overeating, crazy mood swings, that “I just know I’m pregnant” feeling. So a few days before my period is due, I decided to take the test and it was positive.
I was shocked and a bit numb. “Is it too fast?” “Will we be able to cope?” “What’s going to happen to Ryan?” – All this thoughts went through my mind. I was in a daze for a few hours but in the end I pulled myself together went home and told Lan. My husband was over the moon with the news of course. After discussing with Lan on our future, I felt so much better and started making plans for the new nursery: p (haha such a short attention span)
But I guess the “surprise” is not over yet. 6 weeks into the pregnancy I had to go for another checkup for a reconfirmation (as the first scan was done at 3 weeks, too early to determine things) imagine our surprise when we saw this in the ultrasound machine…
Yes people. There’s two sacs, which indicates FRATERNAL TWINS (as opposed to identical: p) Masyallah, I can’t describe my feeling when I found out. Lan and I got all giggly. We’re beyond shock, excited, happy and nervous.
There’s no direct history of twins in both family so the babies is a bit of a “miracle” to us: p there’s of course a lot of theories on how the twins was created but instead of going through all the scientific and medical notes I’ve gathered, the simplest and precise answer is, we got the babies due to Allah’s will. Fullstop. Alhamdullilah we’re blessed.
Anyway, we brought in the big guns last week. We went to SJMC to seek Dr De.Laila advice. Gosh was she excited. Saw the babies’ heartbeat, the skull and backbone has formed, you can see the babies twirling and waving. They are so much more active as compared to Ryan when he’s at the same age: p Tapi they are so tiny. Adorable just like me (haha)
The biggest hurdle during my first trimester was flu and infection. I was sick for 2 whole week. Nose was dripping non-stop, coughing and there’s so much phlegm that I can’t even eat properly without wanting to vomit (TMI,haha) Lost 3 kgs in the process. Doc said I needed rest so was on MC last week.
I’m feeling so much better. Other than the flu, Alhamdullilah the pregnancy has been good to me so far. No major morning sickness etc. I do get tired more easily. Well carrying 2 babies will do that to you I guess. Hubby is trying to get me to take it easy. But you know me, always on the go and can’t sit still :p
As for Ryan’s reaction…. I showed him a picture of the babies ultrasound referring them as “Upin and Ipin” after his favorite twin cartoon character, and asked if the babies can borrow his toys when they arrive. His reply?? “NO!” while vigorously shaking his head. Oh well!!!
