Yes people, yours truly is pregnant.
I AM PREGNANT! :)
I have my own reasons why I didn't announce it right after I found out I was pregnant. I wasn't trying to hide anything. There's no way you can keep pregnancy a secret bcoz soon enough, your growing tummy will reveal it for you, so of course I will tell you the news eventually - it's just a matter of time. I just wanted to wait for the right time to announce it, that is, after the high-risk period is over. It's so tempting but I wanted to make sure that my pregnancy is stable before spreading the news. Which is why I'm doing it now. 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 ;p). 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 bcoz hubby 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 ;p
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 this book was another challenge bcoz he was in the bookstore too, but thank God LV 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.
I still can't believe I'm pregnant - that I'm going to be a mommy. Rasa macam baru jer kawin hari tu... It's so surreal.
