Having a child is what my husband and I prayed and wished for. I guess most married couples feel the same way. Would you believe that I already had a hunch that I was pregnant maybe after 24 hours my daughter was conceived? I don't know but my body just told me that "something" is happening. I started getting clumsy and dropped things which didn't happen before. I also started experiencing short but light fainting spells which later on became nauseous and then eventually developed into morning sickness. Oh boy! I think this is the most gruelling part of all.
I vomit everytime food touches my stomach, even if I like the food so much and enjoyed eating it, eventually it will all go out. I was worried since I know that I needed food and not just supplements in order for the baby to also have food and continue developing. But then I still tried to eat normally praying that at least some food still stayed in my tummy for my baby's nourishment. I was exhausted all the time and needed to stop from my online job as English tutor because I cannot control the circumstances. My classes were either disturbed (because I needed to go to the bathroom and puke), terminated early because of the vomit spells or cancelled totally before it begins because I can't conduct a class.
My doctor became worried when during the time when I was supposed to be gaining weight, mine was dropping. In fact, I reached my ideal weight during that time which is unachievable among any other time. Just when I wished I was gaining, I was losing weight fast. I really cried during the peak of my morning sickness episode when in one week my weight dropped 5lbs. I dreamt of losing that much weight in a week but apparently it happened in the undesired time.
My morning sickness lasted for almost 5 months, just when my baby bump started becoming obvious. I just woke up one day and remembered I didn't wake up in the middle of the night to vomit. I dared to eat breakfast that morning and was surprised to feel full. No puking after meals and in between meals, it felt great!
When my baby's movements became more profound, I soon forgot about all the misery my morning sickness brought me. Much more when I saw her the first time, all the pain, stress and everything I have been through since the beginning of my pregnancy disappeared into thin air. I guess we all have our own unique stories to tell and as a mom I am still dreaming of having another child in the future. I would like to wish for multiple birth but I don't know if I can take the challenge of nurturing two at a time. So I salute those moms who do :
