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.
