Bonjour lecteurs! Becoming pregnant is a huge thing in a woman’s life. I remember reading those lines ‘Pregnant 1-2 weeks’ when I did a pregnancy test and the tears of happiness that came afterwards. But also the fears! After a miscarriage, I was paranoid about everything when I got pregnant with Baba! You are so nervous, especially the first few weeks. Your first child or not, it doesn’t matter as each pregnancy is different. So when an email popped up inviting me to attend an informative event Learning about Diagnostic Ultrasounds at Jacadi Westfield Shepherds Bush, I got really excited! I am not currently pregnant, but always curious to know more! And we have always loved Jacadi… So how could I resist?
The event was hosted by la magnifique (and so energic!) Mellenoire. Very intimately, she shared with us her stories about her family. Expecting her 4th children, she decided to organise this event so that mums can meet up and talk about their fears but also their happy moments!
The room was packed with all types of mamans! Frenchie like moi and Mellanoire, but also some lovely ladies currently pregnant with their first one or experienced mamas with more kiddies.
It was really interesting to share and discuss our experience. I must admit that I was feeling very broody being surrounded by all those bumps! I will need to discuss this with Grumpy Boyfriend 🙂
Learning About Diagnostic Ultrasounds
After our very joyful chit-chat, we got all presented with Anar Lakha, experienced Sonographer at Ultrasound Diagnostic Clinic. It was very interesting to hear all the services she had available. And it is not as expensive as I imagined in the first place.
I don’t know about you but when we had our scans done with Baba, it was not as magical as I expected it. Call me naive but it was quite stressful and a bit quick to say the truth. I am aware that sonographers are under the pressure to do a good job and get any anomaly with the fœtus but it was a bit rushed and tense when we did ours. Even worse, they missed Baba’s heart defect and we only found out when he was born.
In a way, I suppose I was happy not to have known it as it would have spoiled a bit my pregnancy, but it was a shock to have all those tests on my 2 day-old baby. Plus he had to have some surgery done when he was barely 6 months old. But we got his ticker all fixed and he is now a very happy Baba!
Enough talking about moi! If you feel that you could do with a bit extra love when it’s about scans, check out Anar Lakha’s clinic. She is passionate and looks so attentive to her patients! I think I might use something like that if I ever get pregnant again!
