It has been a really long time since I last posted on my blog, and let me try to explain what was going on in my life.
Last year I got married with the love of my life, and we decided we would love to extend our family with a baby. On May 21st of this year I found out I was pregnant, and I was super excited.
That excitement didn't last really long, because I got the well known morning sickness. At first it wasn't that bad, and I thought it would pass after 12 weeks. When I passed the 11 weeks pregnant, I was so nauseous I couldn't eat or drink anything without throwing up. As a result I got completely dehydrated and I was taken into hospital.
I got an iv with fluids and after one week I was recovered and went home. After that I hoped I could finally starting to enjoy being pregnant. Except I got a throwback and had to go to the hospital for the second time.
The doctors decided only and IV wasn't enough so they gave me a feeding tube, but it didn't help.
This went on and on for two more weeks, and then all of a sudden I started giving up some blood. The ambulance picked me up, and they rushed me to the ER, and after some research and a gastroscopy (hell, truly...) they found out all throwing up had caused a little wound inside my stomach and well, there I was again, back in hospital. The nurses were really lovely, and when I finally started to feel better I made some jokes with them. I finally thought I was cured from that darn nausea.
After a week I had a regular check-up at the gynecologist and she saw I wasn't doing good. She wanted to check me again and she concluded I was dehydrated AGAIN.
They were shocked I was still walking around. Anyway, back on the darn IV and feeding tube again. This time the feeding tube worked, and after one week I went home again, with my new best friend, feeding tube...
All this happened in about six weeks, and it really exhausted me. At home I finally started to sleep better and I tried to recover as much as I can. I still wasn't allowed to eat, only drink about half a liter of water a day. I did that until the end of September, 24/7.
Me and my best friend FEEDING TUBE
On my birthday, September 29th I started eating again, and I only used the feeding tube at nights. This went really good, and two weeks ago I got the best news I had since finding out being pregnant.
THE FEEDING TUBE WAS REMOVED!!! I can eat and drink myself again, without throwing up!
Luckily the baby never felt a thing about what happened to me, and he/she is doing sooooo good. The growth of the baby is perfect and my belly is getting pretty big!
I am feeling really good at the moment and I never thought I could say it BUT I LOOOVVVEEE BEING PREGNANT!
At this moment I am 27 weeks pregnant, so only 13 more weeks to go. I am really curious what the baby would look like, and whether it's a boy or a girl. We don't know that, and we don't want to know it, but still pretty curious!
Thanks everyone for being patient with me, and still being my follower!
