You have got to be kidding me!!

Yes!!That’s the only thought on my mind last 3 days!I will tell you about that shortly.. first let me explain my absence. The last few days,we have been quite sick..I caught the flu-bug from Babushka and have been living in feberile hell last 3 days. To add to that,an unexpected Asthma attack.. What I thought was indigestion..actually turned out to be full blown asthma attack.I had to go into our local GP’s emergency room and had to get the nebuliser and go on antibiotics!I haven’t had to use the athma inhaler on a daily basis for many years now and that doesn’t make me happy:( But anyway,atleast I am breathing,instead of struggling to breathe-so its a good thing.
Anyway,now to the title of my post,today.
First off,we have crossed the half-way mark!!Yayyy Me and yayyy Babykins!! I cannot believe it we haven’t taken any belly shots this time..I think the last shot was at 8 weeks,before my sister left!!! Hopefully,today,we’ll take some pics this week.
We went for the 20-week ultrasound on Tuesday.. and the baby was in a difficult position..So,I ended up spending nearly 1 and half hour on the examination table.. The baby didn’t move..I ended up with a back ache,the sonographer ended up with a stiff back..When she told me after 45 minutes of probing,”Try to empty your bladder”..I told her..”Ohh even a thousand horse couldn’t hold me back!!!” Seriously I thought I was going to burst!!!! Anyway,after 1 and a half hour,she told me,sorry,I can’t see much,you will have to come back again..hopefully the baby will be in a better position and we can finish off the rest of the measurements then.
We then went and picked up Babushka and guess what she looked tired and drained..and sure enough when we got back home,she was burning up.I gave her some Panadol and let her rest.. and then,my asthma episode happenned.
I couldn’t sleep at all that night.. may be the nerves,may be the breathlessness.. whatever,I was literally checking the time,every half an hour and was out of bed,before the alarm rang. Anyway,we got ready,downed brekkies and gulped water.. was ready to burst again,this time,even before we reached the radiology center.This time,Babushka went with us,after much drama-she is not a morning person at all..just like her mumma!! She was happy to see the ‘Video-doctor’ and we got down to the business of studying the babykins morphology.. again,the same thing.. not in a good position..:( This time we tried for one hour..and the u/s tech told me,”we got 1/3rd yesterday, 1/3rd today..but you still need to come in again tomorrow..for the rest”..WHATT?? Are you kidding me??
We trooped back again today and finally it was done..they got all the measurements..and we got two beautiful pictures.. and everyone is happy.. well except..we are still waiting to know..Pink or Blue? LOL!!
Ohh and the first day,we saw the cutest thing ever. Everytime,the u/s tech pressed the probe on my belly,Babykins would punch it -it was like watching a little boxer,lashing at a punching bag. Everytime the probe was near his/her head,s/he would put a hand on the head. Finally the little fighter got tired of punching the crap out of the probe and rubbed his/her eyes and nose..It was sooo cute!!:D
Oh!And I figured out,why I have been feeling less movements..This time,I have anterior placenta!! That sure explains it.. but,I can’t help but think..’There goes my chance for VBAC’.. Oh! Well.. as long as the bub is busy,inside..and comes out safely,all’s well!BTW,anybody out there,reading this,who had or knows someone who had anterior Placenta?
More later,my lovelies..

  1. Hope you are feeling better now. 3 ultrasounds, a sick kid and asthma attack can make anyone miserable.

    I had anterior placenta with Buzz and had no issues delivering normally. Hope things work out for you.

    Best wishes. 🙂


  2. OMG! Whats up with you SM? Gosh! and you needed 3 scans to get the entire picture? Wow! The baby is already making you dance to his/her tunes isn’t it? And not even letting you know if its a he or a she!! Ha ha haa.
    Hope your asthma is getting better… Gosh! it all sounds so terrible. Is she fine now?
