It had been more than a year since we got married. From the time we were legally a couple, we wanted to have a child and had tried ever since to conceive. But it seems that having a baby was a far-fetched dream.
I underwent medical interventions, drugs, alternative medicines, therapies. Of course, there was much prayer.
Until finally, I decided that I will just enjoy my marriage and free myself of the pressure of having a child. Then one day, I discovered I am pregnant. What wonderful news, which I readily shared to family and good friends.
My husband was in Cebu at that time so I just sent him a text message. It was too early in the morning and it was not till late that he responded, trying to make sense of what I texted him.
But this is it. I am already pregnant. And the ultrasound confirmed it, though the fetal pole could not be seen yet. I am already 9 weeks pregnant!!! 😀
