Its funny how things turn out, how things fall into place, how the unexpected happens. Thats what happened to my MR & I….
For the first year of MR & I’s marriage whilst we were in Samoa, we had a few setbacks trying for a child. I cannot tell you how disappointing it was waiting each month just to find out we were unlucky… It was HARD! especially getting the looks from people thinking there was something wrong with me. Yeah, like pick on me cos Im from Overseas lol
The first few months of marriage we were still in shock over the whole Marriage thing knowing that the next step would be to add to our family. Sooo after 5months of trying the excitement wore off, and it turned into panic. People in the village were asking questions, family & friends were giving us the pity look. After 9 months of trying we were ready to give up! Dont get me wrong, the trying part was fun, but the waiting anxiously for a positive sign wasn’t.
Thru those months we buried ourselves in work, partying & family obligations, I travelled more, and the subject didn’t come up again. Then after a year in Samoa, we moved to NZ to be with my family. We had given up on adding to our family. Prayer after prayer was sent to the man above to bless us, we started to think we had been neglected for some reason. We started to look at eachother and ourselves and started to pin point reasons why it wasn’t happening. Again, we buried ourselves in work, our social lives were pumpin’! lol so much freedom! we went out nearly every week, I worked at a couple of clubs! It was great! Then the unexpected happened.
After a couple months in NZ, MR & I went to the docs for a check up, I was feeling sick, dizzy & feverish. The nurse asked me for a sample to do the pregnancy test. I laughed and told him “ahh, its a waste of time, I can’t get pregnant!” and he said “sorry its procedure”. So I did one anyway. Five minutes later the nurse says “congratulations, you are pregnant, you’re going to be a mum” and Im like “huh? WTF…. ” and the nurse repeated himself….
I stood there dazed, confused. I looked out to the MR in the waiting room, and he was staring at me with the “are you nearly finished?” look. I called him to come over. I told him “hun, sit down… Im pregnant” he then looked at me like “WTF?” then he continued to stare into space, and looked like he was going to faint!…
That was the happiest day of our lives and that was 8months ago. Im happy to say we have the new long awaited addition to our lives who is 1 week old today. Our beautiful baby boy “JERICHO”. Our lives now evolve around him.
There isn’t a minute in the day that we dont thank the man above for remembering us, and for listening to our prayers. There isn’t a minute in the day where we dont look at eachother and smile at this lil man who is part MR part ME. (his cuteness comes from me…. his nappy fillings come from MR LMAO)
The reason for this post is to give hope to those who are waiting for their prayers to be answered….. dont give up… it’ll happen. Just like it did for us.
