Done 1st trimester

I was late but it was too early to tell. I was scared of the possibilities.
I was assigned to a new project and I have to work on weekends for the next few months. So I peed on the stick, just in case.
Two lines. Two freaking red lines.

That was 8/9 weeks ago.
Lepas tu memang hormonal teruk. Nausea 24/7. I threw up maybe less than 5 times. Rasa nak muntah tapi tak muntah, stress ya.

I gained 17kg. I can barely move but it's either walking or get ready to be induced.
After we load the car, I felt something came out - like my period just came. That was my first sign of labour.
We went for dinner, home, and then to the hospital. I was sent back because (if I remember it correctly) no dilation yet.
On Friday I took an emergency leave. Decided to stay at home just in case, but nothing happened. We had nasi kandar for dinner (Nasi Vanggey - now closed) and walked around Bazar Karat.
I can already feel mild contraction but I still can walk. I was still okay.
At 3am, we went to the hospital. 2cm dilated but the ward was full. The MA asked me wheth…
