Gunpoint Scare

I've seen it in the news, I've read it in the papers. It happen to some people, but not to those close to me. Until early this morning.

I received a text message from my husband at 3:30 am telling me he was stopped by two armed men riding a motorcycle just a few blocks away from home. They held him at gunpoint and one immediately took over my husband's motorcycle and drove away. 

I called my husband and asked him is he really is okay. He said they did not hurt him but they pointed the gun at his face every time he tried to look at their faces. He was not able to identify the two men nor the plate number of the motorcycle they were riding. Everything happened so fast and they just left him there on the streets. He was able to report the incident to the police and he was then advised to report again to the Anti-Carnapping group of the PNP.

I was not able to sleep since talking to my husband and when the sun came up, I was on my way back to Manila. I needed to make sure that he really is okay and I need to be with him. 

I may be over-reacting over the incident. Nothing really happened to my husband, he was left unharmed anyway but still... 

He could have resisted giving his motorcycle, he would have tried to look at the men's faces to identify them, one of the men could have pulled the trigger. 

I could have lost him. Our unborn child could have been unable to meet the father he could have become.

But, it did not happen. God did not allow for it to happen. And for that, I am most grateful.

Loving the Small Things

  • I makes me feel good when hubby holds my hand whenever we go out, it's as if he's saying, "I know your back's hurting and I wish I could help you more but I hope this somewhat eases the pain."
  • I find it amusing when my niece, Cassandra, says hi to our little one and sometimes tells the baby "bad baby, bad baby" whenever my tummy or my back is aching. Cassandra somehow gets the notion that the baby is kicking me whenever something is aching.
  • I like it when some people would tell me I am a blooming mom to be. 
  • I love it when out of nowhere hubby would suddenly rub my tummy, whether I'm in front of the computer and he's on his way out of the room or just when we're watching television.
  • It touches me when hubby would put his ear on my tummy trying to listen to our little one's heartbeat even if I told him numerous times that he won't be able to hear it just yet, it just shows that he is eager to meet our little one.

I'm already on my 15th week and so far so good. I finally got through the "very difficult" first trimester, my appetite's gone up (a lot) and the baby's growth is normal according to my Gyne. Our next check up will be on May 8th, exactly our 1st wedding anniversary. I will be 20 weeks by then and I am hoping my Gyne would tell me it's possible to see the gender of little one during that time. That would be a great anniversary gift to hubby and me and another great reason to celebrate the day!
