Measured at just 17mm and I can roughly figure out where’s your head and body. I was smiling when I saw you through the monitor and I can’t stop looking at the scan printout! You’re slowing growing inside me.
Being the anxious Mum-to-be, I made an appointment with a Gynae immediately, not knowing when should be the right time to go. The first visit to the Satellite Clinic of KK Women’s Clinic at Ang Mo Kio was quite an exciting one.
I made an appointment through their Central Appointments line and was scheduled to meet A/Prof John Tee CS, a senior consultant at the clinic. Upon arriving at the clinic on my appointment time, things just happened in a flash, I did what I was told and then waited an hour and half for the gynae to arrive.
It was late for a week and I began to have crazy thoughts in my mind. I tested it two days after my menses was due and it came out negative. Not wanting to believe that its actually happening, I drank all kind of cooling drinks to force the menses to come. After a week, it didn’t, and I knew something is amiss.
Bought another brand’s test kit and I tested. Double lines! It was faint, but its there, I could see it. Tested it again twice and the result was the same. I’m pregnant!
Lots of emotions and thoughts flowed through my mind, I was confused. I love kids and has always wanted some of my own. And when its here, I didn’t know what to do. Am I ready for this child? Will my financial ability be sufficient and will everything else fall into place nicely over the next 10 months?
The plan was to find a house in June and move in by September since our wedding is planned for November. But now that I’m expecting and due in September, things got to move faster. From a 11 months long plan, we need to adapt and move at a speed both of us felt pressured to. After talking about it we decided. Its meant to be and we will take the step forward together.
