There are times when my afternoon/evening sickness would escalate to whole day sickness. Pakiramdam ko sinasapian ako ng isang daang libong espiritu ni kulapo. Ang pinakamatindi e kung kelan oras ng pagkain tsaka naman nagpaparamdam ng bonggang-bongga na para bagang nang-iinis.
April 20 - I left the office early to go to the clinic. I was bleeding. I was so nervous I thought I already lost baby. There was no available taxi so I took the bus. I was crying on my way to the clinic. I wasn't able to call Lola OB because I left my phone in the office. Upon arriving at the clinic I still have to wait for 30 minutes because there were many patients and I think the staff did not understand that my case was an emergency. As soon as I told Lola OB of my situation she immediately did a transvaginal ultrasound to check if baby is OK. At first I thought baby was already gone because we couldn't see him/her. I think Lola OB changed the probe to clearly check baby. Thank God finally I was able to see him/her.
According to Lola OB the cause of the bleeding was due to the removal of my polyp. After the ultrasound she did some kind of operation and removed the remaining polyp. She even showed it to me. I was like 'Woah! What's happening???'. Minsan kasi nawawala sa loob ni Lola OB na hde naman ako ganun kagaling mag-nihonggo. Ambilis pa ng pangyayari. Masakit Kuya Eddie pero wala na ako nagawa. I was asked to return the next day for another check-up. Lola OB gave me her personal number in case I would be bleeding to much with extreme pain at night. Praise God I did not bleed anymore and the result of my follow-up check-up was fine.
Lola OB told me once again not to drink alcohol, smoke tobacco, exercise, eat spicy food and do hard work. Though I religiously follow them, for the mean time I am taking the bus when going to office. I am skipping my morning walk because I am scared that the bleeding might happen again. I think I'll just go back to walking when I'm already 5 months pregnant. Since I'm still in my first trimester the risk of having a miscarriage is very high.
On the lighter side of what happened...
I only have 3000 yen in my wallet and I was surprised when my bill showed 7640 yen. E andami-dami pa namang tao sa clinic. Feeling ko nalaman nilang lahat na wala akong pambayad. Unfortunately the clinic does not accept credit cards. Luckily there was an ATM booth 6 min-walk away from the clinic. The friendly staff advised me not to hurry and take my time in returning back. Anong magagawa ko hindi ko naman inexpect na pupunta ako ng clinic. Nakakahiya lang. Lesson learned: dapat laging may baong pera.
Happy 9th week baby! Mummy and daddy loves you! ^_^
