How we found out we're pregnant



I woke up in the middle of the night and felt the need to pee. I picked up my phone and checked the time, it's 3:22 am. The husband is sleeping soundly with his arms around me. Not wanting to disturb his deep, 'uninterruptible' sleep, so I've decided to just stay in bed and wait for the alarm. I hugged him back and he pulled me tighter and said "matulog ka pa." He knew that I am already awake and ready to start the day. I told him "May pregnancy test ako jan, do you want to check na ba? naiihi na din ako." He freed me from his tight hug and looked at me with excitement and said "Sige." I went to the toilet to get the sample of my pee and when I got back in our room he was there lying on our bed with his eyes still closed but trying to wake himself up. I told him "ikaw magdrop ng wiwi ko ha" Then he answered "sige po." I handed him the dropper, dipped it in the sample I got and carefully dropped it in the small basin where the sample is collected. I sat down beside him and waited with him. As the sample run through the test strip a strong, deep-pink line was slowly forming and then on the control line. He said "o positive daw" then I answered "oo nga daw." I think he saw what I saw, that the test line is much stronger than the control line. He said "wait natin maging even yung colors nung lines." I grabbed the small packet of the pregnancy test and read the instruction and how to read the results. I told him "positive daw talaga" while pointing on the small packet that says 'strong positive'. He looked at me, nodding his head convinced and said "positive na yan, ang laki na ng boobs mo kaya." I smiled a little and and he smiled back at me and looked back to the test casket. I am not really sure what he is thinking then. He went back to bed with his arms opened inviting me to lay down with him. I put my head on his arm and wrapped his other arm around me. He kissed me on my cheeks and then on my forehead and rested his head on his pillow. I felt his contentment and happiness just lying down beside me, those are his feelings that I never felt for a long time. I felt that he is smiling while trying to go back to sleep, so i hugged him tighter and he then again planted another kiss on my forehead. We snoozed for a little more until the alarm broke it's silence.
