“Congratulations… You’re Pregnant!”
I heard the words come out of the doctors mouth but I am still in shock and disbelief. Could it be true? Are we really pregnant? After 4 years of trying, has this actually happened… naturally without the IVF treatment that we have been planning?
Best not to get too excited yet. Not until the test results come back. I went to QML to have a blood test today. I sat in the waiting room for a really long time. There was a program on the TV about breastfeeding. For some reason, I was glued to the program trying to write a list of mental notes in my head about all the do’s and don’ts about lactating. Then I reminded myself that it is still way too early. It is best to wait until we get the test results officially confirm that we are, in fact, pregnant.
But… the doctor said we are pregnant! She made me take another pee test (on the spot, which was ridiculously difficult to do) and then she said
“Congratulations, You, Are, Pregnant!”
I repeated that sentence over and over again in my head. Is it really true? Did the doctor really just say that? Answering my own questions and trying to bring myself back to reality I slapped myself (softly) on the hand.
Yes Sia. You are pregnant. Now just try to enjoy this moment 🙂
“You will feel a small scratch” the nurse said as she jabbed my arm with the needle. I had a blissful smile on my face. Grinning from ear to ear. I have never been so happy to have a blood test before. It didn’t hurt at all. I didn’t even feel it. A scratch she said? Nope… felt nothing. Just bliss.
“Congratulations” the nurse said.
Thank you, I said.
I just found out that I’m pregnant.
