Oh, boy! Sometimes the universe has its own way of making things possible. After three years of being married, two home countries, one little poodle, one rainbow baby, a series of ups and downs and we finally get to have our own little angel.
12 weeks to be exact with heads up from my Ob-Gyne that everything is going well, has nothing to worry about and endless day and night morning sickness, we can finally get to announce to the whole world our new little bundle of joy growing inside me.
Earlier last year, we had another pregnancy whom we lost at 6th week. Einar and I both got broken hearted and the hardest part was telling the kids as well. But we all managed to let it all go by spending quality time together and appreciating what we have presently – two beautiful children and Chewy.
Then earlier this year, just when I was about to be all ready again to take baby-making seriously (sometimes its work too, you know especially when you’re not in your 20’s anymore – LOL). I went to see a gynecologist here in Romania, did a lot of tests and they have told me that my fertility days are long gone and they have have diagnosed my uterus as pre-menopausal stage. I’ve cried and in shocked and couldn’t believe what they have told me.
BUT then again, I am Asian. A filipino Asian who has a fairly large number of family members, (my Mum is 12 of them and my Dad is 13 of them) and all conceived by both of my Lolas (Grandmother) naturally. So, I went home – back in my old city.
In my country we have a practice called traditional “hilot” (massage) who are done by old women who has a very particular skill. In my case, based on the finding of my doctor, my “manghihilot” (therapist) told me that my uterus was just sitting too low. And so, I’ve scheduled an appointment with her – the whole process probably took about half an hour. It wasn’t a relaxing massage and I won’t tell TMI. But it wasn’t relaxing at all. 🙂
After I came back home to Romania, I went back to my normal routine – going to the gym, keeping myself out of stress, and as much as I didn’t expect 100% success rate from my little trip back home, we finally got conceived after one month.
I guess I still am traditional with my beliefs in some way. I still believe some of what my family has proven effective. Some may call it “crazy”, I call it pretty awesome! but I guess this is what makes us all special, our differences and faith. 🙂
It may be the “manghihilot” who helped me arranged back my uterus, or the universe has finally perfectly aligned all the stars for us – whatever and however, this little angel is a gift to us and we are so excited and we know that we have been praying for this to happen. We are beyond blessed and grateful!
Until my next update! Talk to you later my loves! xx
