Actually tomorrow is our little girl’s D-day but until I write this post, there is no signal yet. We will see if she is decided to come tonight haha. So, I took a chance to do something, one of them… writing a post while watching football.
This morning, I woke up quite early, got a strange dream but get up from the bed quite late. In my dream, I talked to my grandpa from my dad side. Usually, if I see him in my dream, he gives me only wise smile, nothing more but this time he really talks to me. I was so surprise, because he refused to talk to my eldest sister and my dad, he wanted to talk to me! Well, he asked me to replace the holy water that we use for praying. As soon as I replace it with the new one, he said to me…
“Now that you have changed it, your baby will be born soon!”
In the afternoon, I met the midwife and we chat a little bit about what is the plan if my pregnancy passes the D-day. We check her heart beat and Catharina the midwife told me that she is still growing. Maybe that’s why she decides to wait till last minute *grin* but midwife felt that my belly is so tense and gave her sign that there is preparation stage already. So, it could happen anytime! She asked me to prepare everything. We look at another plan if nothing happen till next week then I will meet her on 26th June 2014 to check the blood pressure etc. So far, the pregnancy is fine, nothing to worry about that is another reason why midwife asked me to just take it easy. It is normal for the first born baby decides to stay a bit longer inside the womb.
For us (P and I) it doesn’t really matter if our little one will be late one day or two but our family in Sweden and Bali are so curious about baby A. We understand that they have been waiting for so long to be able to see our baby, when it is finally happen they can’t help to feel a bit unconscious about it. Yeah, we have decided to wait almost 8 years to have a baby, the main reason is we want to be ready mentally and physically. We realize that having a baby is a huge responsible and we don’t want to rush it. We need to settle first with our life, get ready to become good parents, good friends and good role model for our children. Last year we made our decision that we are ready and here we are… in the waiting game for our first baby A! Of course we had many questions from friends and family about what happened and why they need to wait such a long time, but we lucky that they are understand completely why we waited that long.
Honestly speaking, we are so calm about this whole pregnancy. Even we know that there is possibility that our baby will pass the D-day, we don’t stress out at all. As I said in last post that I love being pregnant and never feel tired to carry our precious everywhere I go. Could it be the same if we decided to have baby earlier, well… the answer will be I don’t know. I still can go to town even it is close to the D-day without any worried and feeling that I will not able to handle the pain or something happen on the train. I will continue to walk and do all the activities including have a long walk in town, until baby A comes.
My parents in law is in Stockholm now and they are so eager to see their first grandchild. They hope our little one will be born tonight or tomorrow. I think they are ready for the celebration *wink*. 20th June 2014 is Midsummer Eve celebration in Sweden. This time we will go not so far from home, a place called Nynäsham. P is not well though, so we still not sure if we can go or not. We will see the situation tomorrow morning, if P is still not feeling well then we might stay at home while Mom and Dad go to see the Midsummer pole. Last year, we didn’t do anything and you can read about it here. If we need to stay home again, it is also fine for us. There are many more Midsummer celebration in the future.
So… here is the story for today. I will see you again… (maybe next post will be with a little girl besides me hehehe)
