We are finally welcoming a ‘chungkin’ into the family!
And even as I publish this news, I’m still a little unsure, scared, worried, nervous & excited – about it being real, that it is actually happening. Because there’s still a mix of surrealism & doubt swimming in my mind as I type this post…
* that anything may still happen at any point (don’t blame me for my pessimism, it actually happened to a few people I know – what were the odds, right?),
* that I’m baring my heart out and sharing something so personal on a very public platform… (okay maybe getting knocked up wasn’t a big deal for some of you)
because this entire journey was in no way an easy one for us (you can have the best gynae, best advanced science & medicine, pay lots of hard-earned money towards trying out treatments, be told that nothing is wrong with the both of us and it can all still not work out). Anyone that was closed to us knew that.
And now that we’ve gotten slightly past the start line towards parenthood, we are completely thankful, grateful, appreciative, overwhelmed…
Though it’s still early days for us and we’ve a long road ahead; I want to take a moment to thank supportive friends & families who have been keeping us in their thoughts, prayers & wishes. It’s also been immensely heartening to see ex-colls turned friends who’ve been squealing with joy the moment they guessed the between a bump or a beer belly; and diligently taking care of my well-being, diet and basically just about everything.
Being bestowed one of the greatest rewards & gifts from the heavenly Father is truly amazing… and has indeed been a wonderful experience so far (yes, despite the many fear stories I’ve been told time & again).
There’s a little beanie growing inside me, and by God’s Grace & will, we’re going to have a cozy family of our own really soon!
No more waiting, pinning & crying.
We can’t wait!
