The best news happened yesterday. I still can't believe that this is happening. We are finally pregnant!!! :)
We've been trying to get pregnant for more than a year, and even went to the OB-GYN to get some pointers and answers. My doctor put me on Clomid for 2 cycles before we found out that there might be other reasons why we were not able to conceive. She then suggested that we see a specialist, the next step to our journey. After much talk and tears, we decided that we'll wait it out for a couple of months. We have to prepare ourselves first because seeing a specialist doesn't come cheap. It's a lot of money. Infertility is something not covered by insurance; exams and procedures are particularly expensive.
We've been using ovulation kits to pinpoint when will I ovulate, that way we can time when we'll try. Yesterday, July 18th was suppose to be the first day of my period. I'm feeling all the symptoms (getting breakouts, fatigue, soreness) and thought that I'll probably have it by end of the day. Although I''m feeling all this things, I still did a pregnancy test. Before, it would all end the same way. Negative. I've learned not to hope, that way I won't be disappointed. But yesterday it's different! I used the test which came with the ovulation kit, a slim strip that will show 2 lines if pregnant. After dipping it in pee and 2 minutes after, the control line was becoming apparent but the test line was still not showing. After 30 seconds, the test line started showing, gradually. I cannot believed my eyes. I thought I was seeing things. I took a shower and silently prayed that it really was it. As I closed the shower door, my phone alarm went off, indicating that 5 minutes already passed. I looked at the stick again and definitely saw 2 lines. It's true! I'm not seeing things! I'm pregnant!!! I cried happy tears, and thank the Lord God. Just to be sure, I tried the other test that I have, this one will show a + sign when pregnant and will not take 2 minutes. I dipped the stick again and just after 30 seconds, the + sign started showing!!!
I finally called Borgy to tell him the great news! He's on a meeting, so before I spilled the beans I asked first if it's okay to talk to him. When he said yes, I told him I'm pregnant! I felt his disbelief even on the phone. He asked me several times if it's true. Of course it is! I then narrated what happened and told him that I took 2 tests just to be sure. I told him that I'll take a photo and send it to him.
I was on cloud 9 the whole day and possibly disbelief too. It hasn't sink in that this is happening. When I got home, he's already there. He welcomed me with the biggest smile and warmest hug. He asked if I still have any of the test. I guess he wants to see for himself. So I peed again (which I've been doing a lot) and we did the test together. We kissed and hugged some more. Definitely one of our happiest moments. I called the OB-GYN's office to schedule my appointment and was actually surprised when I learned that I won't be seen until I'm on my 8th week (technically 6th) to hear the heartbeat. I read that this is actually normal unless I'm feeling some pain and discomfort.
At the moment, I'm trying to read everything that I can read about pregnancy. We're being mum about our secret for now, we'll tell our parents and close friends the great news after my doctor's appointment which will not be until August 13!
