Hello sisses! I wanna share my story too.
My husband and I have been together for almost 10 years already. Been married since March 2009. I have PCOS, adenomyosis, retroverted uterus and a small myoma. Menstruation was irregular and when it comes, it ws extremely painful.
Yes, nakaka-pressure kapag nakikita kayo ng mga relatives and friends nyo and be asked the same question time and time again. "Wala pa ba?" Kung alam lang nila na ilang pregnancy test kit na ang naitapon ko sa basurahan.
Summer of 2010, we had HSSG, SIS (both test states I have good tubes), fertility meds, follicle monitoring to no avail. Nakakapagod at nakaka stress ang pabalik-balik sa doctor. Hubby and I decided to relieve ourselves of the pressure and just let God with His plans for us.
Kahit na hindi na kami nag papa check up, or umiinom ng gamot, we never stopped praying for a miracle. Ever since we got together, we always go to church and we pray together before sleeping. I don't know what my husband's prayers are. For me, it was always, "Kayo na po ang bahala sa amin at salamat po sa mga blessings". Yes, I am grateful for everything that He gives us. Food, work, family. I know, my life shouldn't revolve to having a kid of our own. There are so many things to be grateful for. But I know, God knows what my heart is saying. Kahit hindi ko sabihin sa kanya, alam ko, nadidinig Nya ang puso ko.
Summer of 2011, I went to Obando's town fiesta. Hubby was not with me. I went with a girl friend who was also asking for a baby for her brother. (Pwede daw yun eh, ipagsasayaw mo yung relative mo
) The feeling was fantastic. You'll see couples dancing, people telling success stories about getting pregnant. Ang saya. Fiesta talaga in and out of the church.
Sept. 8, 2011, Mama Mary's Birthday. I went straight from work to our local parish to attend mass. Sadly, there was no 6pm mass for that day. Just the 6am mass. So I just sat there in one of the pews and prayed. When I left the church, I saw our Parish priest and I immediately said 'Hi'. I told him, I was hoping to hear mass but I didn't know that there was none. Apparently, he was on his way to a smaller chapel in one of the barangays to celebrate mass at 7pm. He then asked me if I wanted to tag along. Ang bait nya, sobra.
Syempre, sabi ko, 'kung hindi ba nakakahiyang makisabay, sama po ako'. hehe Well, I went there naman to hear mass diba? It was offered, so I grabbed the chance to hear God's words.
On our way to the chapel, (the priest was driving and the principal lector was beside him while I took the backseat), Fr. Abe started making small talks about me, where do I live, was I married, how many childrens etc.. So I said, "nag aantay pa po kami ng miracle ni mister"
He then said, "Alam mo, yung parents ni Mama Mary, si St. Anne and St. Joachim, they waited for 20 years before St. Anne conceived. Biruin mo, after 20 years, si Mama Mary pa yung ipinagbuntis nya. Dadating din yung para sa inyo"
Kung hindi lang nakakahiyang umiyak, umiyak na ako dun sa sasakyan nya.
After that short, accidental, meaningful talk, I started to REALLY just WAIT for it. The entire time kasi, deep in my heart and consciousness, wish pa din ako ng wish eh. After that night on Mama Mary's birthday, I just let it all go.
I prayed, "Lord, kayo na po ang bahala." Everyday, everynight, every chance I get.
June 2012, I was so busy with work, so many family events and gatherings, vacations. Everything cramped in one whole month! I was on my feet for almost 18 hours everyday.
Before June ends, we got the biggest surprise of our lives. We're pregnant!
If you can call it, unexpected expectation.
Im on my 24 weeks now. This is not a smooth pregnancy ride. I was cramping ang bleeding the entire 1st tri. Possibly because of my previous repro problems. But God is good. Safe si baby. Konting sacrifices lang on my part.
You just have to believe that MIRACLES DO HAPPEN.
Have faith sisters.
