Two Years And Four Months

Deye has just completed her two years and four months today…

How fast time flies! Seems like yesterday when I found out I was pregnant. It was exactly the same date in year 2005. I was 10 days delayed but didn’t have a clue that I was already expecting. Since the day we got married, my period was irregular always giving me a thump in my heart that I am. Thump of excitement that turns to a disappointment later on – a false alarm I would say.

We waited for almost 8 months before I could conceived. It was planned. Actively planned. LOL! May pahinga naman nyahaha! Went to work in the morning and my colleague/friend passed by the office. I guess she noticed a swell on my face, not sure but she suddenly asked me “did you get your period already?” Then only I remembered and counted, it was my 10th day – supposedly. She insisted that I should grab a PT and have it checked at home. But I was hesitant coz I might get a single strip again for the 8th time.

That same day was my husband’s day off. I met him in town to do some groceries. Along the way I spotted a pharmacy. I asked him to get one for me hahaha! According to the directions written on the box, the best time to get it is at mornings, your morning urine. Okay fine. But…..

I couldn’t wait. At around 9pm, I opened the packet and went to the bathroom. My husband said “I thought you’d do it tomorrow?” I told him I couldn’t wait, something is somehow telling me to go and check NOW! He smiled and said up to you and goodluck!

OMG I got two strips! Yup, two pink strips! Mahal, I’m pregnant, I’m pregnant!!!! Now that’s not an exaggeration! That screaming really happened and I almost jumped off the toilet bowl hahaha! Guess what my husband did right away? He scanned the PT LOL!

Yup, that was the actual PT that I used and I still have it haha! A keepsake! And this was our photo together the moment we got those two strips, our happiness was so transparent:

We called American Hospital right away and scheduled my first appointment the next day. This was my first sonogram:

@ 5 Weeks (through vaginal scan, tsakit!)

Breaking the news was fun and memorable. Everyone has been anxiously waiting for this big news! *La lang tamang reminiscing haha!*

  1. What a sweet post! It brought tears to my eyes to see how happy you both were!

    (I still have the picture of my second pregnancy test. It never occurred to me to yake a picture of the first one… guess I wasn’t thinking like a blogger yet!)


  2. Thanks! Hihihihi!

    I wasn’t a blogger at that time yet, but I kept an online journal within that period, where I met a lot of expectant mothers that became my blogging buddies afterwards.
