The Discovery of Pregnancy – Report by Joseane Simão

My husband and I planned everything, but it is not when we want it, but when God wanted it… We were married about a few months ago when we decided we wanted a baby, so in August 2010 I stopped the pills and we already thought that in next month i would already be pregnant, but it wasn’t like that… september, october, november and december and nothing happened. So we thought we had trouble getting pregnant,even though we know that all the results were normal, we thought it was not meant to be. So we decided to leave it alone and not even think about it. We spent the end of the year parties and had a great time and on New Year’s Eve I was supposed to have my period, but since I had been late at other times, I didn’t even worry that I was late again. In fact, we didn’t even care because in November it was 14 days ago and I menstruated. So, I let it go.

Bom entered January 2011 and with him the rush of the day. One fine day, more precisely on January 10, 2011, I didn’t even remember how long I was late, in fact I didn’t even remember that I was late, gave me a pop in the head, so after work I passed the pharmacy and bought a test pregnancy and went home. My husband had already arrived and so he was taking a shower and I was making dinner (as usual). Then I commented: Fábio I bought a pregnancy test …

Then he said to me: Josy, we already did this test and it didn’t work …

So I said: I don’t know, it made me want to buy and make…

Fábio: So, let’s see…

So I followed the instructions and took the test and left it in the bathroom and we waited the longest 5 minutes of our life … And after we passed we ran to the bathroom to see. Our mother … I had a huge scare! The two lines that appear were very pink. Wow, we jumped for joy! Then Fábio asked me not to jump lol, but how to avoid it, right?

So imagine the situation: The dinner left to be done and then we rushed to the Beneficência Portuguesa Hospital and passed the general practitioner and I asked for the blood test to prove the pharmacy test, but the doctor who attended said that they did not perform this exam over there. I should be feeling sick to be able to do it, but she gave me a request and a referral so we could go to a clinic to do the exam. We left the hospital very upset, because we wanted to get the blood test and prove it, but inside us we already knew that I was pregnant.

The other day I managed to make an appointment to take the exam and then found out that I was really pregnant. I already made an appointment with a gynecologist that I always went to, but the consultation was not pleasant as it should have been. To begin with, the doctor said that he did not perform childbirth under the health insurance and that he would only do a private one and then he charged me R $ 2,000.00, but then I suspected and went to investigate. So I called in the health insurance and found out that that naughty doctor was going to receive the health insurance and that I wouldn’t have to pay for his service. He (the doctor) would receive from the health insurance and receive it from me! Wow, I was shocked and worried, because there was no doctor to accompany my prenatal care, so I cried too much, I was nervous and worried, because I wanted to know if my baby would be okay, it was then that in the consultation that I had already scheduled with the endocrinologist, because I was monitoring my thyroid due to the hypothyroidism I have. It was then that the doctor’s secretary indicated her gynecologist, who was very good.

I made an appointment and went to the consultation. Arriving at the doctor with my husband, I was seen and then we told everything that happened and he calmed us down. I said that I would accompany my prenatal care, but that he no longer performed childbirth, as he had retired from it. After all, he brought 12,000 babies to the world , but he said that when the time was right he would refer me to a friend of his who was an obstetrician and that he did a great job, so from there I was relieved and happy to have medical support from my side.

Remembering when I went to do the 1st ultrasound, ours is an indescribable emotion, you hear the heartbeat for the first time … What a nice feeling! I cried, my husband cried and even the doctor who did the ultrasound got teary eyes, and the doctor said:

– Wow, we can see that this child is already very loved …

I said: Our doctor without a doubt …

We went to my doctor and he said that the baby was very well and that I was supposed to be calm. The first months passed and one day, I was at home off duty, because that year’s carnival had been in March, so it was the holiday at home and in the afternoon I went to the bathroom to pee and when I went to clean myself I realized I had a little blood on the paper. Wow, I panicked at that moment and called my husband because he was working and in tears I asked him to come home and go to the doctor. He arrived super fast and then we went to the hospital.

Arriving at the hospital, which by the way was overcrowded, and in tears I arrived at the reception and told the girl that I thought I was losing my baby, she passed me in front of me and then I stopped by the gynecologist on duty and he referred me to an urgent transvaginal exam in that same hospital, and then we entered the exam room and then the exam started. The doctor who was doing it said nothing and just watched the images. Then I took a breath of relief and said:

– Mother, calm down, your baby is doing very well. Look here he is moving because of the trans device. Do you already know the sex?

I said: What do you mean, doctor, I already know, I am three to four months pregnant …

He said: In my experience, yes … And the position of the fetus and the line of the spine …

I said: Wow what is it then?

And finally he answered with certainty: It’s a girl! And if you notice that she will move your belly a lot …

Imagine my joy! I went to the hospital crying and left the hospital with a smile from ear to ear. My husband did not believe it and laughed a lot alone, after the shock, we can relax and enjoy our little one and already choose her name. Among many options we decided that it would be called Sabrina. Another month passed and I was already 5 months old and then we did a new ultrasound and in that he verified and confirmed the statement of the doctor on duty in which he said it would be a girl.

Now sure with the name, Sabrina was already moving a lot and she was already in the birth position in the 5th month of pregnancy. Everything was going from wind to pulp and every day that passed I bought more and more things for her. In April I took my vacation and then we went on a four-day cruise. We prepared everything and then we went on a trip. I had already passed the phase of constant nausea and the critical phase of danger, we enjoyed our pregnancy to the fullest.

In the 7th month it was a very troubled month, it was July and it was very cold. So imagine me with a huge belly and still full of clothes to warm up. I was going to work, I was already on the subway and sitting in the preferential. Two girls in front of me, fascinated by my belly, asked excitedly: What sex is the baby?

I answered happily: It’s a girl …

So conversation goes and conversation comes when suddenly an elderly woman before getting off at her station, put her arm between the two girls and slapped me on the head and spoke to me in an arrogant voice : Congratulations on your pregnancy …

Wow, I was furious, because the elderly woman thought it was a lie for me to be able to sit in the preferential, there was no other one I went down behind her and took her arm and said: Are you crazy? How do you attack me like that? Did I do something for you?

She replied: You are only fat and not pregnant, you have no pregnancy belly …

I said like this: What do you mean, crazy, look at the size of my belly, your crazy. So, I lifted up my blouse and lowered the fabric part of the jeans for pregnant women and showed my huge belly…

Then the subway guard came up to us and asked: What’s going on?

I said: This lady accuses me of not being pregnant and still hitting me with a slap on the head before she leaves the subway, just because I didn’t give her the place …

He said: My lady, how can you do this to the girl? She has the same right to sit in the preferential seat just like you … She was unresponsive and said nothing, the subway guard turned to me and said: Do you want to file a complaint against you?

I said: I’m not a boy, but let her serve as a lesson … I only scolded her, but another may not have the same patience as me and stick her hand in her face!

That was when the subway came, and I got in and continued on my way to work. After some time, lying down I was thinking about everything and the image echoed in my mind and passed as if it were a movie, I couldn’t sleep. The other day I didn’t even have the strength to go out to work, so I stayed at home and thinking about everything. All this went by and then finally the last appointment with the gynecologist who accompanied me finally arrived and then he passed me to the obstetrician. I already went to the consultation and took the last ultrasound, so he said: So I’m going to go to a convention in the United States, and it is likely that I won’t be back before September 19th, are we going to take the baby out now?

I said: Our doctor, but already ?! My baby shower is scheduled for 09/04/2011 (Sunday) and I cannot cancel it.

He said: Shall we make an appointment for 09/09?

I said: Alright then, let’s do this …

I left the office happily, as I had a week left to see my little baby! The baby shower was great and we got a lot of beautiful things. Then came the big day, the most anticipated day! We arrived at the Hospital Brasil chain São Luiz and I was already admitted. So they took me to the anesthesia room and applied the epidural, I was already a little nervous the first application had not started, so the doctor gave me another anesthesia and then I didn’t feel anything from my waist down, then my husband came in and then the doctors started the procedure. When he made the incision in the lower abdomen, Sabrina instead of going down, she decided to go up, so the other support doctor came up almost on top of me and made a force to push her down and then the obstetrician reached in and removed her, he brought me and i already melted…

Then my husband left and they took me to the recovery room, there I was so exhausted that I completely blacked out. A while later they took me to the apartment where I was going to stay. Then my husband soon arrived and then I became calmer. A few minutes later, the nurse came and brought our kitten. Oh my God I remember every detail and the delicious smell and the little angel face. Our a perfection! She was born with 51 cm and 3,400 kl a baby girl . In the first attempt to put it in the breast for her to start sucking, she took it first and started to suck, even though she only had colostrum. So everything was normal, the first days of a lot of worry and love.

We left the hospital and went straight home, I was very well and I didn’t feel any pain and so I didn’t want anyone to come and help me at home, because I saw that I didn’t need it. People went to keep me company and not to do my homework, but my husband helped me a lot with everything and he made food for me, so I just had to rest and take care of my beautiful baby.

After 15 days after delivery, I went to the obstetrician and he explained to me why he delivered the baby, he told me that the umbilical cord was two turns around her neck and that if the normal delivery occurred it could be dangerous for my mother. baby and me. I was shocked and thanked the doctor for omitting this information, as he was able to make me nervous about the situation. My pregnancy was very calm, I only had some stress, but it didn’t hurt me at all. I took the letter, as I have until today.

Good coming to the new phase, sleepless nights and several diaper changes, but I wouldn’t change any of that for anything and would do it all over again. And the best feeling is to feel that you have placed a wonderful being in the world in which he loves you without interest and kisses you with love. Today my daughter is 4 years old , she is super smart and makes me happy. Thank God I had a super blessed pregnancy and a passing of the following blessed days too, until today I find myself remembering every minute and every detail I experienced the first time I felt her move my belly, she moved a lot especially when the father would pass his hand and talk to her. It was magical … Today she is a super close friend and always tries to please her father and me with treats and letters.

And finally, I want to thank my friend Rosane, who gave me this opportunity to put here a little of the experience I had and that I still live today, this experience is unique and perfect …
