The whole idea of pregnancy never fails to amaze me. Definitely, it’s one miracle that only God can produce and only women like me can experience. I feel so lucky just thinking about it.
When I got pregnant for the first time early this year, I couldn’t believe it. I remember I even thought it was impossible because I had this feeling I was infertile or something. But I did get pregnant, though it ended miserably with us losing our first baby.
What I have at present are both happy and sad memories of my first pregnancy. And I choose to be reminded of them with a tender feeling of gratefulness inside. I had a good start, after all. I was lucky to have had an easy pregnancy, no morning sickness, no stress, no nothing. It’s just that it didn’t end happily, and the result has left a permanent scar in my life, in our lives.
I don’t know if I’d ever get pregnant again, or if I’d feel the same way if I’d do, but I still believe pregnancy is a gift. Every woman deserves a chance to be a mother, and it all starts with getting pregnant and making pregnancy memories that would last a lifetime.
