Being pregnant is a blessing. Me and dear husband are so grateful. Although, every pregnancy is different. Some people got an easy, no fussy pregnancy. Some got a little bit of struggle along the way. And mine is a bit of struggle, with 2 times of being hospitalized because of bleeding, placenta previa (at the 2nd month of pregnancy) and excessive vomiting or hyperemesis gravidarum (at the 3rd month of pregnancy). I can’t even swallow water, being so dehydrated and when I throw up, my bladder is leaking out (sorry it’s gross).

Around 3 month pregnant
Hyperemesis is different from the usual morning sickness. I can’t keep any food or fluid down, even water. The vomit is brownish color and I lose 4 kg in the first trimester. When it’s really bad day, I could vomit until 6 – 10 times a day. At the hospital, they gave me an IV and medicines. The first four months was such a struggle. I even quit my fulltime job because I have so many sick leave.
I did get better, in the 5th month, still vomiting but less. And I need lots of bedrest. Some people just don’t understand about it and it’s frustating sometimes. I’m so grateful for my supporting and understanding dear husband. Our family was also there to support us.
When we heard our baby’s beating heart it was the best feeling ever. And the first kick and movement that I felt on the 5th month were awesome.
