Combined Ultrasound and Biochemical Screening

Today I went to the maternity clin

ic to do a combined ultrasound and biochemical screening . It involves having a blood test to measure certain pregnancy hormones and undergoing a special ultrasound examination. Based on these test and other stuff they can see of it’s possible for the foetus to have Down syndrome and two other chromosome changes.

It was pretty awsome cause the baby was moving alot, which means whatever I have been feeling these past days is actually the baby’s movements and not something else. I have been thinking that it is too soon to feel anything but they told me that if you have been pregnant before you might be able to feel the movements a little bit earlier.

A friend at work asked me if the results really mattered to me and my answer was NO without hesitation. Everybody have the right to do whatever they want with their lives and bodies. When it comes to me, I believe that everything happens for a reason and it is not my descision to make if a child should be born

or not.

When I was 17 I got pregnant and having the same beliefs and values that I have now I still made the decsision to terminate the pregnancy cause I was not ready and I went through hell for that. I promised myself that I would never do it again and I have made sure not to be in that kind of situation again. Until now.

This pregnancy was obviously not planned and to be honest, the timing is horrible. I will save the story behind it for another postor maybe even a video but yes, the timing is horrible. But hey, I am still pregnant, I am still planning on goin through the hole thing. I just need to get it into my head that if everything goes well, in 6 months, I will no longer be a mother of two. I will be a mother of three. I willย  have the cutest babygirl or babyboy making those cute babysounds and smelling all babylicious. I will be walking around with our new blessing from above in her or his expensive and overpaid but cute stroller drinking latte with my other momy friends on maternity leave.

Until then.. I have too get myself some new clothes. Today’s outfit is totally taken from my moms closet. The dress, the coat, even the damn stockings, lol.
