Two more weeks to go and viola! I’ll be entering the last trimester of my pregnancy. If you’ve been following me (I do hope so…haha) on my social media accounts or you’ve noticed that I’ve been away from writing/posting on my blog, well…I sincerely apologize and trust me, I’ll make it up to all of you. Little by little. Parang ang bigat ng kasalanan ko ha.
So eto na nga, I’m back…And I’m so happy/excited/pleased to share with you my so-called “Road to Pregnancy“, also in celebration of Creativ Writr – two years na po kami. I’ll be writing more about my pregnancy journey and beyond. To all the wonderful women out there, stay in touch and be blessed.
It was around May this year when I started feeling a little different. I remember going to work (kakastart ko pa lang sa bago kong work sa airport) with a terrible migraine, feeling nauseated and lost. I thought maybe “Weather-weather lang yan, minsan okay ka minsan hindi.” but I really have this strong feeling that there’s something wrong with me. I even missed my period that month and it was strange. Sabi ng isa sa mga workmates ko “I bet you’re just tired that’s why you missed it.” Hmm…may point sya.
But one day, I ended up in the hospital. I told my husband that day “I don’t want to go to work today, I feel dizzy and nauseous…I coudn’t take it anymore. There’s really something going on!” And he was like, “No, you’ve just started your job and now you’re taking MC (medical leave) blah blah blah…” Finally, after all the bragging and nagging…we both went to see a doctor.
To cut a long story short…
The GP performed a pregnancy test. “Congratulations!” he exclaimed. Wait a minute, am I dreaming? No, actually what happened was…I burst into tears! “Why are you crying, you’re not supposed to feel bad my dear. You’re married right?” I thought to myself “Yeah, I know right but how come?” I told him I didn’t expect it. Last February, I went to see an OB/GYN (concerning about my painful menstrual periods) but to our surprise, the doctor further explained the diagnosis — How my husband and I can’t have a baby (not any time soon), considering infertility due to retroverted uterus. Anu daw? almost three years na din daw kami kasal tapos wala pa daw family planning/birth control, kaya may possibility na hindi ako nabubuntis dahil nga retroverted ang uterus ko. Malay ko ba. Akala ko nga si James may problema e.
Three months after the OB/GYN have told us that we’ll have a problem…God has opened my womb! I’ve conceived and take note three weeks na daw si baby sa tiyan ko. Hallelujah! Hindi kami makapaniwala ni James, God is so good. This situation became another revelation for us too see, “How the things that are impossible with man are possible with our God.” — We really considered it as a miracle because we haven’t taken any steps yet to have a baby. Truly, it was by far the greatest thing that ever happened to me, to us, as a couple.
I hope you don’t find this offensive, but I know some of you have been struggling to get pregnant. I just want you to know that the same God who blessed us with a child, will bless you also. Barrenness is a curse, well not for us who are already in Christ. Don’t tell me, “It’s easy for you to say.” So, is it hard for you to believe? “It’s just a miracle.” How about you? Don’t you want the same thing too? Nothing that’s happened to you/me is a surprise to God. Wait lang natin sya, and for sure He’s working of our/your behalf. Remember…His thoughts are higher than our thoughts and His ways are higher than our ways. Would you agree?
