Week 9 : Decisions

For the choice of delivery options, I’m leaning towards private visits – with an Obstetrician and the maternity support service (where my checkups would be with a mid-wife for half hour … vs. 5 – 10 minutes at the Obstetrician), and delivery at a public hospital, also with midwife support.  I’m also finding it a challenge to make decisions, so I still haven’t completely made up my mind yet! I’ve also become more aware that baby and my body advices me what’s right for us and so I’m paying attention to this instead of everyone else – books and Drs included.  For example, without being aware, I’ve been taking a particular protein powder for a few...

I’ve been feeling bloated for the last month, and as I’d just spent a week at home with my family, I thought it was a result of overindulging! Emotionally, I’d also been feeling off, though I put it to other things. Not in any way did I think I’d be pregnant! The reason I found out was that my period was overdue a week. Anytime my period is overdue a week, I do a pregnancy test, just to be sure. I didn’t think much of it and had also ‘checked in’ with myself ‘asking’ if I was pregnant, and the answer was a clear ‘no’! Well, was I wrong!
