We’re Pregnant

Bringing RJ to this world has not been easy for me and Rhonnel. We were one and a half years married when we decided to consult an OB-GYN specializes in fertility work ups. I am not like other woman who gets pregnant effortlessly. I had to go through series of tests, fertility work up and take fertility pills. But despite all  our efforts after several months, I still didn’t get pregnant and it caused me so much pain, depressions and frustrations. I started to lose hope. I thought then that we’re just wasting efforts and money. I stopped complying on my OB-GYN’s advises, stopped taking fertility pills and laid everything to God’s hands. We prayed every day and night that He may give us a child…just one child.

After six months, our prayers were finally answered. It was a miracle! I still remember Rhonnel was in the office. I excitedly called him because I can’t wait for him to come home and tell the good news. He was very happy that I heard him laughing and shouting at the same time. Then I called Nanay and Tatay, my in-laws and all of our friends. That was one of the happiest moments in my life.

On the first three months of my pregnancy, I loved eating eggplant, squid, “dinuguan” and grilled chicken blood. In short, I love eating dark foods. I always hate spicy foods but during my pregnancy I love hot and spicy dishes. I hate fish and chicken and I don’t like the odor of any cologne and perfume that’s why I was not using any that time.

RJ is a good girl. Even when she’s inside my tummy, she didn’t give me any trouble except for waking me up on wee hours because I felt there was something dribbling inside me. I didn’t feel nauseated nor experienced morning sickness. But when I was 5 months on the family way I was having hard times commuting from our house to the office and vice versa so I volunteered to be included in the ongoing retrenchment in our office.

This was taken when we had our farewell pool party after the retrenchment. I was 5 months pregnant but still had the nerve to wear swimsuit.


Being pregnant is an exciting time in my life because I was pampered and getting too much attentions. I had the privilege of being always the priority and had the privilege for having a comfortable seat on a jam packed bus and restaurant even I was not making any reservations. lol! Most importantly, my loved ones were showering me with my favorite foods, fruits, love and care.

This is my entry for Couple’s Corner theme this week entitled “We’re Pregnant”, in honor of Mother’s month.To read more stories about pregnancy, just hit the badge below.

Naku, yang pampered ek ek na yan, sarap talaga kapag buntis. oh di ba? talagang pauupuin ka ng mga tao, bibigyan ka ng daan, hehehe..Sarap alalahanin ng mga times noong buntis tayo, kahit gaano ako kahirap magbuntis at kahit gaano ang hirap kong umiri, i will still definitely choose to get pregnant again, pero sa hirap ng buhay tama na ang mga kids ko.
