19 Aug We are having a Baby!!! ❤️
That’s probably the most emotional and most beautiful blog post I’ve ever written! Finally I can reveal our little secret to you guys: I’M PREGNANT… IQBAL AND I ARE HAVING A BABY 🙂 We are over the moon excited and cannot wait to finally hold our little miracle baby in our arms. We are most likely the proudest parents in the world 😀
Beginning of the year I was pregnant for the first time but unfortunately this pregnancy resulted in a miscarriage 🙁 I was in a very bad state when it happened and in the end I even had to stay in the hospital. However, I wanna share everything with you guys in a separate blog post because it’s a longer story and I think it’s important to also talk about sad things like this. I really wanna support other woman who have to go through the same thing because as you can see there is hope 🙂
For sure we now can hardly put our luck into words that this pregnancy seems to be fine and we are becoming parents beginning of next year 🙂 I’m actually already quite far into my pregnancy (soon it’s already half time). However, my baby belly is still tiny 🙁 If I compare myself to other women in the same week I really ask myself where the baby is 😀 Athough our expected date of birth got even moved forward because the baby was so well developed. Of course every woman and every body is different. Hence, my baby belly is probably just waiting to pop 😀 Although I could already feel our little one a few times which was simply magical!
Beginning of the year we already tried to become pregnant and we were really surprised that it worked out so quickly. My gynecologist told me back than that it is very unlikely that I will get children without any aid one day. Before taking the pill my period was very irregular, sometimes I didn’t even get it for over half a year. After Iqbal and I made the decision to become parents we wanted to try it without any hormones or such first. And after being on the pill for more than 10 years and without any pressure I got pregnant IMMEDIATELY. We found out in the Maldives and both of us were totally perplex in the beginning. After a few days we got really excited but also tried to limit our excitement until the 12 weeks risky period has passed. And that was probably a good decision because unfortunately my first pregnancy resulted in a miscarriage 🙁 Back then we didn’t tell anyone about it (not even our families).
After waiting for a few months we decided to try again and surprisingly I got pregnant again IMMEDIATELY. Due to our history we of course were really careful with our excitement although this time I had quite a positive feeling from the beginning on. And that fortunately got confirmed later 🙂 Although during this pregnancy (compared to the last one where I had almost zero pregnancy symptons) I was physically in quite a bad state. Especially in week 6 – 12 when we were in Hawaii and New York I was feeling sooo sick all day long and sometimes I had to throw up 4 times a day 🙁 We were in the USA during that time for work so this trip was very exhausting! Although the good thing was that this way I was not so much afraid anymore of having another miscarriage because I was feeling physically so miserable which is usually a sign for an intact pregnancy. Iqbal was always doing his best to comfort me and he told me each time after I had to throw up: “Look Babe our baby is doing fine!” And this feeling let me overcome this period somehow and also lowered my fear of having another miscarriage. Physically the first trimester of my pregnancy was tough but at least psychologically I was doing great 🙂
Now I’ve already been for quite some time in the second trimester and I only occasionally need to throw up anymore and the sickness has also gotten much better. Furthermore, we’ve already done all tests we could such as the nuchal fold scan or the harmony test and all of the results could not have been any better. Thus, we are super relieved and cannot put our luck into words that we are having a baby next year. Just a while ago I read this beautiful quote which I wanna share with you guys:
The longer you have to wait for something, the more you will appreciate it when it finally arrives. The harder you have to fight for something, the more priceless it will become when you achieve it. And the more pain you have to endure on your journey, the sweeter the arrival at your destination. All good things are worth waiting for and worth fighting for!
This is definitely the positive thing about what happened: We are now even more thankful for the immense luck of becoming a family. We also told all of our close friends and families already because it was super important for us to tell them first. Would you like to know how I revealed to Iqbal and our families? Because that’s a sweet story and I always tried to tell everyone as creatively as possible 😉
Through the experience of having a miscarriage (where Iqbal once again has proven to be a real dream boyfriend) we are now even more grateful that this pregnancy (besides the sickness in the beginning which is so common though) has been so positive. Everything has just brought us closer together so sometimes it can also be a good thing to experience bad things because you really appreciate the good things afterwards so much more. And we are now sooo EXTREMELY thankful!
I am also very much looking forward to sharing the most exciting journey of our lives with you guys. I’m planning to become more active here as well as on my YouTube channel and Instagram account. I actually have quite a bad conscience that I was so inactive on all of my channels the past weeks but at least now you know why 😉 And it’s gonna change from now on! Here you can already watch our newest video:
And there are definitely more videos coming up so it’s worth it subscribing to my YouTube channel HERE. It’s gonna be a really exciting time for us and we cannot wait to share everything (the good and the bad) with you guys 🙂
