About 4 years ago, me and my husband decided that it’s time to have a child. I never was the mommy type and didn’t like children very much. I didn’t know how to relate to them, how to communicate with them. I didn’t understand them. I wanted to my life to it’s full potential before having a child and I did. When I turned 30 I decided that I want a child, that I’m ready for the next step.
After we’ve got married we’ve started conceiving a baby. After just two months of trying, it happened. I was pregnant. Only it wasn’t meant to be. My pregnancy stopped from evolution. No problem. I had faith that it will happen again. This happens to a lot of women when they first get pregnant. My body wasn’t yet prepared for this.
And then it happened. I was pregnant again. I remember that it was summer and we were on vacation at the beach when I took the pregnancy test. It was POSITIVE! I was 5 weeks pregnant. We were so HAPPY!
I had an easy pregnancy. My only sick moments were when I smelled tooth paste and cooked meals. Yeak! So, I don’t really have any awkward moments to share from my pregnancy period.
I tried to eat less junk foods and any other foods that would be bad for the baby. Less hard work for me (one thing that I loved), more for my husband.
In my last trimester I felt really tired and my feet were killing me. They hurt so bad that I laid on the couch most of the time. I really wanted to give birth, to see my child, to hold him in my arms (and to not feel my feet hurting so bad).
My birth was fairly easy. I was prepared for it. I had a C-section and my recovery was easy.
I will tell you my other stories in my next posts.
Until then, embrace your kids and be happy,
