A pleasant surprise

Jie and I have been talking about our life plans. So much that we have somehow put our life on “stand still” as we wait for the fulfillment of our plans.

After a few months. we decided that we must not put our life on hold. Life goes on while we fulfill our plans. Let the Lord do the rest. After such a decision, a very pleasant surprise came.

Without Jie's knowledge, I bought some tests and on March 15, it was confirmed!

I was ecstatic. Though we have not really planned for it, we have talked about giving JE a playmate. After all, she is already 2 years old.

I tried again the  following day, and the result came back the same. A bit faded but still.... I couldn't contain my excitement. But I kept everything to myself. I don't know when I would tell Jie. However, when we were at Starbucks that time and Kristel, Noreen and the rest were joking about it, I couldn't help but blurt it out.

Jie was shocked! Hahaha. I wished I could have caught his face on camera. It was a good day. And I couldn't wait to hold my new baby in my arms.

I went to to my high school friend, and also my OB-GYN the following day. She was very happy and excited for me. She gave me prescription for folic and calcium, as well as request for a transvaginal ultrasound. She computed that I was at 6 weeks.

Jie immediately bought all the prescription and even decided to buy branded supplements instead of the generic ones. Life is good.
