I started this blog last year to blog mostly about my pregnancy mixed with health and wellness posts, but unfortunately as we started to get bad news along our pregnancy journey, I wanted to avoid to write anything about it until I knew what was gonna “happen”. It’s still very recent that our baby girl was stillborn (in week 28+3) so for me it is the most sensitive subject I am gonna blog about, but I am gonna make a try as I think it can be helpful for others who unfortunately has been in the same situation as us or a similar one. It seems to be a taboo today to talk about childloss which actually is the hardest thing a parent can go through, so if my blog can help any pregnant woman or any partner in this situation it would make me happy.
After the birth I got a syndrom called Hellp Syndrom, which is a life-threathening pregnancy complication for both the mum and the baby, not even the doctors themselves know really the reason why it occurs. So I’m gonna write a few blog posts about my pregnancy and about the disease from my own experience and perspective.
When me and my boyfriend started to plan to get pregnant there really wasn’t anything more we wanted then to find out I was pregnant, so the day we did the test together in our bathroom was the most nervous thing I’ve ever been through! 2 days before that we were out with our friends having sushi and wine talking about babynames and since I didn’t know if I was pregnant or not I decided not to eat sushi or drink anything just in case we would be lucky this month. And we were lucky. The luckiest. I have never been so happy in my life as that day when it showed us on the test; Embarazada 2-3 (pregnant 2-3 weeks). It was the best feeling in the world to know that we were gonna be parents!
3 months later we published our announcement on Facebook with the cutest picture we took at the beach with our flipflops and a pair of baby flipflops in the middle that we were expecting our baby in February 2017. (Everyone recommended us to wait until 3 months had passed to tell the world and I think it’s a good idea as most miscarriages happens before 12 weeks so it’s just harder in case anything goes wrong if everyone knows). The happiness bubble we were in back then was amazing and cannot be described enough with words, I just felt so blessed everyday I woke up together with my boyfriend and the little one that was growing inside. 2+1 was gonna be 3 🙂
Here is one of the photos of our announcement we took on the beach;
Next post about my pregnancy is gonna be about food and health during my pregnancy.
