IKWINENTO ng dating aktres na si Rica Peralejo ang isa sa mga pagsubok na pinagdaanan niya ngayong taon sa pamamagitan ng kanyang bagong vlog upload. Ito ay patungkol sa kanyang pagbubuntis at mga realizations niya nang mawala ang kanyang dinadala.
“The announcement is I was positive. Positive not for COVID thankfully and the other good news is that I was positive for pregnancy. So, yehey happy! Good news”
“But the bad news there is I was positive that means I’m no longer am.” Rica on the loss of her baby.” panimula ni Rica sa kanyang vlog titled ‘I Was Positive’.
“I only really decided to share it because I find it when, you know, I share my vulnerabilities and my struggles to my viewers, nakaka-relate kayo sa akin. Somehow siguro, meron siyang effect na parang kapag nakikinig din ako ng iba, it makes me feel a little less alone.”
Naging mahirap ang taong 2022 para sa pamilya ni Rica. dahil bago ito nakunan ay sumakabilang-buhay ang kanyang panganay na kapatid.
“2022 has been quite a year for me, because this is not exactly the first pain of the year. This is also the year that I lost my eldest sister that I’m very-very close to. She died in April .
Nadiskubre ni Rica na siya ay buntis bago mag-Father’s Day.
Pag-alala niya, “So, a little before Father’s Day, I found that I was pregnant. This one is quite different because I’m already 41, so when I miss my period, sabi ko, ‘Hala! Nag-start na ako ng premenopausal symptoms’”
“Just the fact that I took a pregnancy test and nag-negative siya. But something in me made me want to check after about a week yata. And I did another pregnancy test and ayun na! Nag-positive na siya.”
Aminado si Rica na hindi siya makapaniwala na siya ay buntis muli.
“I was in disbelief,” sambit nito. “Ito siguro ‘yung first time na hindi kami nagta-try, pero mero’n nakalusot. In fact, prior to this accident, my husband and I were talking about the different options of not getting pregnant anymore.”
“Kasi, we were feeling na nga like the age, also you know, when you see a lot of things you couldn’t see before when you were younger like: how to be there for your children in your old age and all that.
“Parang sabi namin, baka ito na nga yun. ‘Tsaka tinatanggap na rin namin sa puso namin baka naman God just really has two kids for us and were very happy already na parang, ‘Lord, thank you, na nakadalawa pa kami.’ So, medyo surprise talaga yun.”
Naging maingat si Rica sa kanyang mga physical activities at inilihim muna ito sa mga fans and followers niya online.
“When I saw the pregnancy tester turned positive, I immediately messaged my OB to say that, ‘Doc I think I’m pregnant,’
“Hindi ko maintindihan ‘yung feelings ko kasi sabay-sabay siyang nangyayari sa akin. One is I’m at the height of my physical fitness I’ve never been this physically fit in my entire life. And all of a sudden I had to restrain myself for my physical activities.
“I didn’t know if you notice but I would post like old stuff, but you know, I wouldn’t say so people don’t notice online na something is up. Kasi pagka nag-stop ako, mag-post ng ganun they would already know and I didn’t want that thing in my head.”
“I was already very wary about it is because–kung hindi pa po niya alam ang story ko, it is in my past vlogs as well–I already miscarried twice prior to this.” paglahad pa niya.
