After the longest wait of my life, we happily announced that YES, WE ARE PREGNANT!
B and I have been together for eight years total. Naturally, there was a phase when people around us were bugging us with questions about having a baby. Although that was never an issue for us, it never really bothered us.
I believe we both had a change of heart when we celebrated our first year wedding anniversary last November 2014. Suddenly there were talks about our plans on conceiving, how many kids do we want and ultimately when are we going to “work” on it. We started consciously trying during our anniversary getaway. I have always had monthly regular periods but I took an effort to monitor my peak days, etc (more about my “getting-pregnant-techniques” on my next post).
On our first two months of trying, I kind of felt a little panicked, thinking why am I still having my periods. I thought it’s going to be an instant thing! On our third, fourth and fifth month, I tried my best to drop off my worries and see it as a wonderful and kilig time to bond with B. Hehehe.
Come April, I had a dysmenorrhea-like pains without the actual period. Then in an instant, I felt like “this is it!”. I secretly took a pregnancy test last Easter Sunday (April 5). I wanted to surprise B with my announcement. I even fancied this idea that I would wrap my pregnancy test kit and hand it to him as my “Just because gift” for him.
To my dismay, the test result came out negative. I climbed back to bed, baffled. “When are we going to have a baby??” Suddenly, worries and negative thoughts started flooding my head. I had a heavy heart. B knew nothing since I wanted the announcement to be a surprise, and since there was nothing to announce, I kept quiet.
A week flew by, and I still don’t have my period. I uttered to B that I have a hunch that I might be pregnant. We giddily got out of bed and took our spare test kit and off I went to the bathroom while he was eagerly waiting outside. A few drops later, B insisted to come inside. We both watched as the pregnancy test kit slowly drew two purple lines. That was the longest five minutes of our lives! Although the lines were faint, we were both in awe, speechless and teary-eyed with this blessing! We are, indeed, pregnant!!! That was a Sunday, and naturally Sunday remained to be our favorite day of the week.
After that I remembered how B’s positive qualities bumped up to 1000% haha! He is super caring, super thoughtful and super giving 99.9% of the time! I know our journey in building our little family has just began, but I am grateful that I am sharing every little step with the love of my life, my B.
My heart is just full of love and gratitude for this blessing! Thank you everyone for your love and support.
Below was my Facebook announcement few hours ago. I am overwhelmed with all the loving message and greetings!
It’s been a while since we started this journey to conceive. I must say it was and still is an emotional roller coaster. Secretly, we both thought there was something wrong with us. Gratefully, we were just being tested for our patience. I heard babies can be a handful. *grin*
We’ve been dying to share this great news to all of you, our families and friends, but we kept our silence. Making sure first that the baby is safely tucked in momma’s tummy.
Now that it is safe to announce, we happily share that “OH YES, WE ARE!”. THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU FAMILIES & FRIENDS!!! We really felt your love and how happy you are for us! ♥♥♥
