MY LIFE HAS TAKEN A NEW TURN : YES, WE ARE HAVING A BABY
So here goes the story of how we discovered that we are having a baby.
So I finished my second semester exams (I am currently studying for my Masters degree) and I had a bit of break. I therefore decided to invest that time into creating content for my Youtube channel and also preparing for the new semester.
However, in the midst of this, I discovered that I have missed my period for about 4 days.
Before then, I was due for a little procedure as I have an umbilical hernia and wanted to get it in before taking in.
The day of the surgery has been fixed and so I thought my body was in anxiety mode and hence the missed period.
My husband had been teasing me and telling me to take a pregnancy test as he was sure I was pregnant. I doubted it because I was really feeling all the signs I usually have for PMS.
I decided to take a home pregnancy test afterall. I woke up on Saturday morning, 21st of September to use the toilet and also take the test. My husband followed my as he was already awake by now. I can see the wide grin on his face as he has been teasing me since i mentioned that I missed my period. My plan was to pee on the strip and then go back to bed with the hope that I will check it when the day breaks but as I was still peeing on the strip, I took a quick look at it to be sure that I was really peeing on the stick. Lo and behold, 2 lines were staring back at me.. Gosh, I am pregnant. I busted into tears.
My husband was grinning from ear to ear at this point but was some what bothered that I was crying. Hmm. I came into the room after hugging and asking my husband if we really are pregnant and burst into Thanksgiving.
I did a quick estimation on a pregnancy app and discovered that its possible I am 4 weeks gone. No wonder I have had some serious bloating and navel for the past few weeks.
So, I went ahead to book my first prenatal test with my gynecologist to be sure I am really pregnant.
I know my life is about to change for good. I know bringing in a child to this world requires a lot and I trust God for strength and grace.
As at the time this post is going up, I am almost 28 weeks gone and I wont say it has been easy but I keep taking one day at a time.
