I Can Hardly Believe It

Time flies so swiftly, isn’t ? Wow! It seems like it was yesterday when I found out that I was pregnant. It was October 29th. After a couple of days, I got confined in the hospital for threatened miscarriage. I was so devastated because of the restrictions. I could not sit ,walk, and stand. When I was discharged from hospital, I was so happy to be able to come home. But I had to pee, poop and bathe in bed. I was so depressed but at the same happy. Mixed emotions,actually. I had an illusion that pregnancy was all bliss. Thanks to my mom’s unconditional love. Her support helped me carry through those excruciating three months.

Now I have surpassed that phase. I could not be more grateful to God and to my family. Though I still have limited mobility, I am glad that I can go out to my tiny garden, breath fresh air and water my plants; I can go mall to buy some stuff for my baby girl. I was able to fix some important documents. I am thankful to God that after those three months, I did not have any complications anymore in my second trimester. I will never forget this journey to motherhood.

Three more months to go! Please pray for me friends.

Wow that is such a great news. I've never been a mother yet but I'm excited to be one in the near future since I'm still young.

Glad you were able to make it through the tough times. Hope everything gets better from here onward!

Indeed, SoundNFury It was tough. I had a very active and busy life before getting pregnant so I was not used to staying in bed 24/7.

That was really tough. Its great that you were able to overcome the hardship of being a mom and there is more to come of course! Better be ready for that but for the meantime, enjoy everything and take care of yourself.

I'm so glad you don't have complications after the first trimester. Most of us suffer morning sickness in varying degrees, but it's really depressing to be on bed rest from the start. Sending prayers that the rest of your pregnancy goes well and you're blessed with a healthy baby.

Thanks Mooiiyaan . I have telling my friends who haven't been pregnant and who have been planning to get pregnant to exercise to strengthen their core and pelvic muscle. Having strong pelvic floor muscle means your internal organs and womb are well protected.

Congratulations to you. You have become a girl's mother.

I am hoping everything goes smoothly from now on . Follow your doctors orders.

3 months is very fast, don't do heavy work, just walk around so that your pelvis is flexible, easier to dilate later.

I had a great pregnancy and couldn't have imagined how I would have felt to be confined! I'm such a free spirit. I'm glad to hear that you are doing well.

May Jehovah, Lord God almighty look over you and your baby that no harm will come to either of you and your birth will be successful and the baby will be born healthy and live a long and happy life.

I agree, it does pass very swiftly. I remember when I was pregnant with my kids and now they are teenagers! It's hard to believe it! lol
