I could have blogged about this some months back but hubby and I had to hold our excitement and postpone the announcement a little bit. As the old advise goes, once you find out that you’re very pregnant, don’t announce it to the world since pregnancy tests can also result to false positive. Some would also say to wait for the twelfth week before sharing the good news since the chance of miscarriage during those weeks is still very high.
It was a few days before Christmas when I started feeling hot and restless. For a few nights, I was sweating in the middle of the night while hubby was fully covered with comforter as he was already chilling from the aircon’s very low temperature. The worst part of it was, after I’d take a bath, I would be surprisingly hot and sweaty once again.
Christmas eve came, and things didn’t change. I thought that I might be pregnant but I didn’t want to dwell in the particular thought since I was to have my period in two days! As a woman who wanted to start a family already, I all the more felt restless for the two-day wait!
Christmas morning was quite different as my body wasn’t responding very positively to the happy occasion. I felt like sleeping through Christmas day. When I couldn’t hold it any longer, I told hubby that day that I might be pregnant. He happily volunteered to buy me a pregnancy test kit. The kit’s instructions said that I had to do the test in the morning so we patiently waited for the following day.
I woke up at three o’clock in the morning the following day with the need to pee. I thought that it was the best time to test, and lo and behold, the test turned out to be very positive!
I woke hubby up who immediately asked if it was positive. I didn’t know that he was waiting for the test result as well. 🙂
We were very happy returning back to sleep. Although Christmas of 2012 will be our last Christmas to celebrate exclusively as a couple, we still are very grateful that God granted us the best Christmas gift ever!
We couldn’t thank the Lord enough for giving us the chance to share our lives as parents with this little angel soon. 🙂
