June 28, 2006 - The First Trimester

7:26 AM | ,

We were told that the first trimester of pregnancy is the most critical period. Around 12 midnight of July 28, 2006, exactly the third month of pregnancy, Felis woke up with lots of blood dripping down her clothes. There were even blood clots and we were totally in dismay. Felis had several history of miscarriage and we really thought that that was the last one.

We didn’t immediately go to the doctor as we were financially drained that time and we waited till sunrise to request for assistance. My elder sister Nanette came and we hurriedly went to the Hospital to see the doctor. We were told to have a Transvaginal Ultrasound test. And to our surprise, for the first time I heard a heart beat that I could felt it synchronizing with my own. Yes, it was our baby’s heart beat and she’s alive. Well, we actually didn’t know yet her gender that time.

It was the first trial that God gave us during my wife’s pregnancy. It wasn’t easy but
it’s our hearts desire to have a baby. We prayed for it and claimed that we can have one.

May 1, 2006 - One Month Pregnant

7:16 AM | ,

Felis and I are members of the Pioneering Covenanted Parish-Based Christian Community here in the Philippines - The People of God Community. And within our Community are small groupings we called Men & Women Groupings of which we meet every week to discuss some personal matters. This is part of the Pastoral Care provided by the community. The members of our MWG then were 4 married couples under Nestor & Jessa Amora: Guy & Felisa, Alan & Hazel, Jovial & Wyeth and Rommel & Karen.

It was May 1, 2006 when our MWG spent the Holiday at Malasag Nature Park. May 1 by the way is Labors Day and Felis’ 33rd birthday. There were animals, Stairs to climb and Hanging Bridge to cross of which Felis bravely crossed to my surprise (She doesn't have this as far as I know). And there are much more tiring but exciting activity.

We winded up the day singing & drinking all night long. Felis was also being honored on that night. We headed our way back to our every home on the following day.

Out of curiosity while talking non-sense with Felis, Felis noticed that she was already a month delayed with her monthly period. So I decided to go to a nearby drugstore and buy a pregnancy test. Surprisingly, it turns out positive. It was a day of excitement and thanksgiving. But the excitement doesn’t stop there. It was being coupled with Trials making the thrill a lot more exciting and challenging.

About the Author

My name is Guy, 35 years old and Married to Felisa with one precious Gem. This Blog doesn’t focus much about our married life but how we live our lives with our one and only Gem – Mikaela.

I got married to Felisa on November 11, 2000 at the Immaculate Conception Church, Bulua, Cagayan de Oro City.

We were then excited to have a baby. But that excitement was somehow delayed. We waited for a year, and another year, and another year, and another year until finally after five years we were granted with one Precious Gem – Mikaela.

Mikaela Alexis – that’s her name. She is now 3 years old. But as much as I’m excited to post some recent updates about her, I’d like to start when she was still a month old inside her mommy’’s tummy.

I hope you’ll enjoy reading my Blog. God bless you all!
