Like motherhood, nothing quite prepares you for your breastfeeding journey. Honestly speaking, I never thought of making breastfeeding an option. Somehow, I just decided that I was going to breastfeed my baby from the beginning. Possibly because, I am surrounded by moms who never give up on breastfeeding and it just encourages me to want to try it. Moreover, the prices tagged on formula milk in supermarkets are pretty horrifying. I’m better off squeezing my own milk.
Nothing like in the movies happened to me. My water bag did not break like it did for Charlotte in Sex and the City movie.
I went for my last appointment on my EDD (17 June) and was still very much pregnant. My cervix was 1cm dilated and I still had a long way to go. I heard the remaining 9cm can take days! Since I was getting very uncomfortable, I decided to get induced.
I don’t quite remember the feeling when I found out I am pregnant. I remember Luq’s reaction though… mine, not so much. I remember walking into Watsons in Paragon one Thursday afternoon and got a pregnancy kit for the heck of it. To be honest, I didn’t feel or had the slightest instinct that I am pregnant. Maybe, the occassional bouts of gagging that I was experiencing on some afternoons. Anyway, I got two sticks (you gotta be doubly sure) and was planning on peeing on them when I got home.
“I’m gonna pee now… you wanna watch?”
“No, just pee”
