I AM PREGNANT!
Alhamdulillah, I am now entering the second trimester and I have to say that I’m glaaad and relieved that my first trimester is finally over! I did (and still do) get pregnancy sickness starting week 8 until now (I won’t call it morning sickness tho, bcoz I’m at the “healthiest” state when I wake up in the morning) but it’s not severe. I can’t wait for the queasiness to totally ease up, which hopefully would be in about a week or so.
The news shocked the two of us bcoz we weren’t really expecting to have a baby straight away. We were planning to get pregnant like, end of this year, tapi kita hanya merancang, Allah yang menentukan. Alhamdulillah, rezeki datang awal. It’s an unplanned but surely a welcome pregnancy!
Anyway… remember our birthday dinner at KL Tower? Remember I mentioned “our little secret”? Well, this is it! I found out I was pregnant 2 days before our birthday dinner so I planned to break the news to my husband at that time. Perfect timing, ey? The baby would be our birthday present (although I’m not sure who gave to whom actually). I had to keep my mouth shut and God knows how tempting it was! Imagine keeping your pregnancy from your husband?! That was the longest 2 days of my life. But I did a great job because my husband didn’t suspect anything – not even the late period, my sudden increase in appetite, abdominal cramps, nor the sore and sensitive breasts. I guess he just thinks I’m being whiney as usual!
I decided to surprise him so I made him a card, handmade by me and put the pregnancy test kits inside a small box. I also bought a book about pregnancy for dads-to-be, entitled The Expectant Father. Buying the book was another challenge because he was in the bookstore too, but thank God my Speedy 30 is spacious enough that I could make a purchase without a trace!
And then later he asked me whether it’s a boy or a girl. I was only 6 weeks pregnant at that time laa! Hehe.
