We are Pregnant! #PregnancyAnnouncement

Yayyyy, I am so happy to announce that we are pregnant! So today I am around 14 weeks and 3 days, and I decided it is the best time to tell you because I am already in my second trimester. Below are some stories I wrote since earlier pregnancy. I think it's a good way to write everything down, so I can reread it another time, or share with our baby in the future :)


5 Jan 2016 - Pregnancy Sign
My period was supposed to start in 2 Jan 2016, but it didn't coming. After 4 days late, I told Calvin, that I might be pregnant. But he told me to take it easy (he doesn't want me to jinx it), and let us spare another week to take pregnancy test. I just know that I am pregnant (mommy's feeling?), so I stopped drinking coffee already, and always hold my belly whenever I drive on bumpy road or whenever I take stairs >.<.

20 Jan 2016 - The day I did my Test Pack 
This was the day I found two lines on the pregnancy test. I was so happy I looked at it again and again. I told Calvin, who was still sleeping and he just gave a thumb up, and back to sleep. Yeah, he is that kind of a guy, who lack of expression. Hahaha. Later that day, we decided to call our baby Bao Bei (read: pao pei) means baby in Chinese.

23 Jan 2016 - First Visit to the Doctor
To confirm the pregnancy test, we made an appointment to the Obgyn. Our pick is Dr. Chandra Thaytty, Sp.OG, because Calvin's sister was taken care by him in her last pregnancy and she gave a good review for him. We went there at Saturday, and waited only about an hour, such a blessing, because many says that the queue is awful at some obgyn. It was my first being there, so the nurse told me to fill in my data, and take my weight and blood pressure. In an hour the nurse called my name. I was so nervous, but the Obgyn was really cool, I've already like him. He asked when my last period is, and then told to lay down on the exam bed. He took an ultrasound, and there he/she is! Our tiny baby. It was actually appeared like a dot in the screen, hehehe. The doctor took the heart beat test and the sound was so fast. He said our baby has good heart beat, around 122. My eyes was very teary at that time. It's just so amazing to hear our baby heartbeat. He predicted the baby is around 6-7 weeks. After we finish with the ultrasound, the Obgyn told me to take things slowly, not to do too much walking, not to be too tired, because the baby is still tiny, so the chance of miscarriage is still high. Then he told us to come back in two weeks and prescribed some medicines for me:
1. Folaplus (30 tablet) IDR 30,260
2. Duphaston 10 mg (30 tablet) IDR 480,250
3. Cester (15 tablet) IDR 46,750

The Obgyn itself cost IDR 350,000, so that day we spent almost IDR 1 million! #prayforCalvin hehehe.

Then we went home and  spent the rest of the day looking happily at at ultrasound pictures the Obgyn gave us in a book. I still can't believe how amazing is our God, to put such a tiny life in my womb that already have a heartbeat! I am in an awe! I keep praying to God that our baby will grow healthily. #GodSpeed

1 Feb 2016 - My Pregnancy Symptom
The pregnancy symptom on me so far is I get exhausted easily, I even go to bed around 9 pm, and wake up 6.30 am lazily. I pee a lot, and I go out of breath so easily. My boobs are swollen and sore. Other than that, I look like a normal person. No morning sick at all. Thank God. I think, Bao Bei knows that mommy is working at the office, so he/she is being so considerate to me :").

And I've already gain 2 kilos. My previous weight is around 48 kilos, and now is around 50. I am not craving any particular food. I just starve easily, but I can't take too much food, because my stomach will be so full I can't breathe. So the best thing is to eat often but in smaller portion.

I think I am now are constantly very happy, I don't know if it's the mood or just because I don't get my period, so I'm not cranky at all (like every women know, once a month) >,<. It's a good thing, rightttt?

12 Feb 2016 - Second Visit to the Doctor
We were so excited to see how little the baby is. Bao bei is only 2.43cm but already look like human, with big head, tiny hands and foots. God is really amazing! Please grow healthily and happily our Bao Bei!

26 Feb 2016 - Third Visit to the Doctor
Today's ultrasound was so exciting, because as the Doctor turned around the tools on my belly, our baby was moving around too. It was like Bao Bei want to show off his/her move to mommy and daddy. We were so happy, do you know that? Mommy and daddy are so thrilled, we can't stop saying how amazing is our God. Bao bei now is around 6cm and 11 weeks and 6 days today. Thanks to you, mommy doesn't have morning sickness at all, just a little migraine once in a while, no worries, because Doctor says it's perfectly normal. We love you! At this time, the Doctor is not prescribed Duphaston to me anymore, instead of it, he prescribe some Calcium

3 Mar 2016 - Baby Bump

Around 12 weeks

I guess this is it. I will let you know the next update. See you!
