When it all began

Starting a family is not an option for us even before we got married; we knew individually that we wanted children.  Instead, “How many?” was the question. And it became a running joke that Terence wanted a football team and I was less enthusiastic about popping that many babies. [Note to all men out there: It’s harder than you think!]

So when we found out I was pregnant, we were elated! Our 2nd visit to the gynae at 6 weeks was beyond surreal as we heard the lil bub’s heartbeat for the first time. Everything came to a standstill for that few seconds and all I heard was a racing dub-dub-dub-dub-dub…  For a moment I didn’t know if my heart was faster or lil bub’s.

What an amazing miracle it is to see life forming inside of you. How amazing is our God! Our joy was doubled especially after experiencing a miscarriage a year back, receiving the devastating news on our 3rd anniversary. It was an ordeal and not something you’d expect. But it happened to us and we fought through it, cried our hearts out, dealt with our fears, pulled together and came out stronger. God was in control and it is in these seasons that we learn to trust, really trust the One who holds our lives.

Our lives changed forever when we heard lil bub’s heartbeat. I was instantly connected and it was then that we became parents.

Recently we went for our 13 weeks scan and lil bub’s growth has been thriving. Lil bub’s is expected to arrive on the first week of May next year. We can’t wait! But in the meantime, we’re planning for a few getaways before the arrival. A great reason to feed the travel bug!
