The Journey Begins

Day 1 of parenthood

I had been feeling nauseous and generally off (as if I had a hectic cold on the way) and decided to stop in by the Clinic Sister of Pick n Pay Pharmacy. I had been to this Clinic Sister before and liked her aura. Our energies mixed well.  I told her about my symptoms and she asked if i was late on my monthly’s. I laughed and told her that my monthly was late (by 3 days) but that my cycle had been crazy for the past year which indicated that a late monthly meant nothing! She suggested that we do a blood pregnancy test to make sure as she thought its most likely that I was pregnant. She said she would call me with the results by the end of the day.

I went for the blood test (at Pathcare) thinking that it was a waste of my time and silly. I rather wanted to go home and sleep as i was exhausted and annoyed at the pregnancy suggestion. 

At 16:45 on Tuesday, 3 July 2018 – I received a phone call from the Clinic Sister that would change my life forever… I was 4-5 weeks pregnant.

She mentioned that it was early days and that i should take care of myself and take it easy and that i should schedule an appointment with my Gynecologist.

As I had been pregnant before and had Christine van Heerden as my Gynae, I then called the following day and made an appointment with her for the 26th of July 2018 – where I would be 8 weeks pregnant.
