Welcome to Pregnancy & eventual Parenthood

I was taking a shower one day when I started feeling an intense pressure on my pelvis & suddenly … I had this inner voice telling me that maybe I am getting pregnant.

It was THE first time in my 4-year marriage that I didn’t freak out, cry or rush into a pharmacy & buy an emergency pill.

I got married in 2015 & the idea of having kids just freaks me out. I don’t know if I am the only one that doesn’t fall in love with every tiny baby I see anywhere?

I always thought of pregnancy as a sacred responsibility & once I get pregnant, it’s no longer my body alone, its home for another human being. What I eat, think, feel & even smell will have an impact on my baby.

I am writing this article now & I have just started my second trimester. To be completely honest, my first trimester wasn’t a pleasant ride. The idea of waking up every morning with constant fatigue pulled my life upside down. I always thought of myself as a strong woman who will push through & survive. I survived but I get more frightened every day about what will happen next.

I am creating a new life & in the near future, I will guide another human being through the world! My heart rate is faster now just typing those words…

One of my proudest moments is that despite battling morning sickness, fatigue, migraines, vomiting & nausea, I am still moving my body. I didn’t stop working out; I didn’t stop doing the things that make me happy. I adjusted my routine, I changed my workout plans BUT I will never surrender to the idea that complete REST will make my mental & emotional state better.

I will be writing my journey on this blog & I hope I share some valuable information that you can use one day xx
