After officially announcing her pregnancy last April 2 by posting a photo of husband Mickey Perz and herself showing her belly at the beach, Gee-ann Abrahan shared exclusively with PUSH why they waited until her seventh month to share the news. “Actually at the beginning I was the one hesitant. I had a miscarriage in the same year we got married in 2016. So since then, parang praning pa ako. Ayoko muna i-announce. Siguro ayun kaya hindi niya pa rin sinasabi to our other friends so I won’t din muna,” she explained.
Now on her third trimester, Gee-ann said she has had to take time off work to focus on the pregnancy because she and her husband wanted to be really careful about her condition. “We have an events management company so we do events pero medyo nag-lie low muna ako. I stepped back from that. It’s because of the pregnancy. Na-trauma talaga ako dun sa first. Not just me, even Mickey because he was more excited. He really wanted it. Nagtago ako from the world. Kahit sa social media wala ako nun. Nung first three months hindi talaga ako nagsalita because I don’t want to talk about it. I don’t want to be asked. May ibang nakaalam kasi you’re forced to say it,” she shared.
After going through a miscarriage, Gee-ann said she really went through a difficult time. “May mga taong gusto mong sapakin sa mga sinasabi. Although I know that they meant well, for example yung mga nagsasabi na, ‘Okay na yan at least alam mong hindi abnormal, kaya siguro naano.’ How do they know na hindi ko mamahilin ang anak ko just because ganun? Nothing is okay. Nothing makes it better. Basta ang tagal. Nananaginip pa ako gabi-gabi na nanggugulpi ako ng mga buntis, ganun (laughs). Tapos I didn’t like seeing pregnant women complain, yung ganun. Mas mainit pa ulo ko sa buntis (laughs)!” she said.
Now that she is pregnant again, Geeann shared how she was able to get over what happened. She said she and husband Mickey are even planning to have two kids. “I just gave myself time. Even my faith, not naman that it faltered pero I questioned a lot of things. I guess because I’ve been through a lot in life so I’ve seen a lot of people go through struggles pero it’s one of the mysteries talaga na why does it happen? Wala lang? It’s so random, parang ganun. Wala, you just stop asking. Wala ka ring makukuhang sagot,” she explained.
