It’s been more than a year since my last personal blog post and I don’t know where to start after so many things that has happened but one experience that I won’t ever forget is my blog post entitled: Earlier At Table Top Mountain With My Father In Law.
You might find this post familiar if you have read it. It’s where I mentioned my amazing first-time experience in climbing a mountain. Where I also went crazy for wearing a funny pair of shoes and luckily survived.
Some of you might wonder what’s the relevance of that blog post to this particular blog but no worries, we’ll get there in no time.
So, in that blog post, my father-in-law is still with us (me and my husband) for a visit until it was time for us to say good-bye.
Going to the airport.
I can still remember us rushing to the airport without having breakfast (just a cup of coffee). I guess things are hard to forget when you’re feeling dizzy and needed to be at a certain place in a certain time. Well, in my case that is. Considering that our place was a two hour drive.
We were also getting hungry at that time. I remember ordering sushi and miso soup for us while waiting for my father-in-law’s flight. At our table were also a family waiting for their flight so we kind of had a little chat while waiting for the time.
Few more minutes after we ate, time came and my father-in-law needed to go. We said our good-byes and together, me and my husband watched his airplane fly.
I was still feeling dizzy.
After the plane left, my husband asked me if I wanted to go to Redcliffe since it’s near the airport and only a few minutes drive. I also wanted some fresh air so we both agreed to visit the place since it’s also our first time.
During that time I was starting to feel so uncomfortable. I remember my head felt like spinning and I felt like throwing up.
Then I thought, no doubt I was having a nausea.
Finally, we’ve reached Redcliffe.
This photo was taken January 15, 2017. Our first time visiting Redcliffe.
I can still recall the wind blowing to my face as I was trying to ease my dizziness away. Still, nothing happened and I feel the same.
Suddenly, the idea came in and the feeling was strong. My heart was pounding when I asked my husband for us to buy pregnancy test. His face turned bright as he was so surprised. I told him that all the symptoms were there, all we need is to try.
So, we went to a drug store nearby. There we asked for a pregnancy test kit. We even asked how accurate it is and the lady told us that it’s 99.9 percent accurate and we are satisfied.
The moment of truth.
I went to the mall to have the pregnancy test while my husband was waiting outside. I quickly went into the loo, I was so nervous until I saw two lines appearing right before my very eye!
I called my husband right away to deliver the good news and from that moment we celebrated with our hearts filled with joy and gladness.
Savouring the moment.
This photo was taken while we were sitting at the bench in Redcliffe’s jetty.
The view became extra special as we sit there with our joyful hearts. There’s no word to express how happy we are so we just sat there and feel the moment. Now, Redcliffe officially became one of our most memorable places.
I only had few photos since my phone’s memory was full at that time and only were able to take a few after I deleted some.
Still wondering what’s the relevance of my previous blog post to this particular post? Well, after we found out the good news we’ve learned from the doctor that I was already four weeks pregnant. That means I was already carrying our baby when I climbed the Table Top mountain! I don’t think it’s normal for a pregnant lady to climb a mountain but we did and for me that’s memorable considering I was wearing the wrong pair of shoes! One thing I’ll definitely share to my child one day. LOL.
Maybe you’re also wondering what’s the connection of this whole blog post to the title itself? The answer is… After we found out that we were pregnant that was also the time that we had to head back home which is the Philippines and we became so busy from there, the whole pregnancy itself and so many more that I wasn’t able to blog for the whole year and I almost didn’t notice it.
I guess I need not to explain why I said it was worth it… Simply because it is.
Thanks everyone! 😉
