Everyone had been curious to know about Pristine’s reaction to my pregnancy. Last Monday, I was the first to know.
That would be the perfect word to describe Pristine’s reaction to the baby news. I’ve always known she’s quite sensitive, emotional and dramatic but not this dramatic!
First, the anticipation of what’s going to happen.
(Sorry for the poor lighting – it was really dark inside and my sister’s random comments in our language)
The moment she knew:
Pristine was so surprised but I was more surprised looking at her.
It’s so different from my reaction to my mom’s pregnancies years ago. You see, after my second brother was born (I have 4 younger brothers and one younger sister), I cried at each pregnancy announcement my mom made. Not because of joy but because of sadness. I didn’t want more siblings! I thought with two brothers, our house was already full and I was already getting a small share of everything.
Of course that didn’t stop my mother from further giving birth to three more children!
Pristine on the other hand, welcomed the baby news with a very big heart. She could not contain her excitement, tears of joy had been shed.
The sonographer was so amused with her and prolonged my ultrasound session to 30 minutes so we got to watch the baby on the monitor showing different movements. The baby was yawning, stretching arms and legs, covering face with one hand and just generally squirmy inside! Pristine was so fascinated at the little one inside me.
And here is Pristine calling grandma, telling her the big news!
She kept on telling to my mom, “Don’t tell papa!” thinking her dad doesn’t know of the pregnancy yet! She wants to surprise him!
Oh and if you missed some parts of Pristine’s nerve wrecking conversation with grandma, we are having a boy!
