Born and raised in New Jersey, I’m 29 years old and pregnant with my first child (baby girl). Where do I start!
Action! So I get a phone call from my best friend! Convo: did you get your period yet? Me: no, why? BFF: oh I got mines today. Sb: our menstrual cycle is always behind each other mines being first then hers. Me: biiiiiitch, I’m pregnant!!! Bff: how you know, maybe your cycle jus changed. Me: naw son, I always get my period every 28 days and mines always come before yours! (End scene) After my phone call with my BFF, I then called my boyfriend. I’m crying hysterically and hyperventilating to the point he can’t even understand a word I’m saying. Finally, I managed to say, I think I’m pregnant. We hopped in the car, ended up at target. As I walk in. I’m thinking “oh my god everyone knows I’m pregnant lol”. I’m roaming the isles looking for the cheapest pregnancy test. Boom! I found one with two test! Purchase has been made. I go into the bathroom, the last bathroom to be exact. Opened the test, praying for strength from God to handle whatever the outcome may be. I take the test, before I could put the test down, I seen the double lines.
My life has changed because of the life I carry inside my womb. I’m currently 27weeks pregnant, this experience is the realist ever!
My First Trimester: I was completely exhausted. Low appetite and I slept all day and my bedtime was no later than 9:30pm. Every evening at like 6pm I would get nauseous, but my lovely Popsicles cured that every time. On an emotional scale, I was worried about being a good parent. How am I goin to take care of this baby, can I take care of this baby. Every negative thought in the world ran through my mind. I kept the faith and prayed!
Second Trimester: Thank God, I feel like a human being again! No more negative thoughts about being a good mother. My energy levels were back to normal. Appetite still low. I slept after every meal I ate. I’ve heard the heartbeat of Baby B, seen the sonogram, and that sealed the deal! I”M REALLY PREGNANT!!!
I’m heading into my third trimester, I’m looking forward to that and shortly there after we will be welcoming Baby B into the world!!!! All questions and comment are welcomed. Please follow and stay tuned!
