My Pregnancy journey is one I always look back and thank God for bcos my first trimester was very smooth with no morning sickness at all. At first I never knew I was pregnant because I was seeing my period, the only noticeable thing is my love for sleep and metallic taste in my mouth. At this point, I was past 3 months, had slight malaria and the doctor recommend a blood test and a scan and we discovered I was 13weeks gone. My pregnancy journey was full of ups and downs, sometimes am active, other days am always down or sleepy while sometimes I would purposely pretend I couldn’t do anything so that DH can help me in cooking and house chores. 2nd trimester came and went with it’s drama and on till my last semester. On this fateful day, I was at home doing some house chores because we were told to exercise our body very well when we approach our due date and then suddenly I felt something dropped in my tummy and immediately i started feeling contractions, no water or blood. Then 2 hrs later, there was strong contractions every 5minutes,i just called DH to help me with my delivery pack and we got set for the hospital,by this time it was around 7;30pm,i sat in the car and my legs were placed on the dash board with wrapper on my body…Mamas the pain was so much that i could not wear any cloth.when we got to the hospital i managed to wear an agbada gown and ran inside the labor ward and was placed on the bed,immediately i was given some injections while they keep checking how far i dilated,few hours passed and still was in serious pains,later i was checked and discovered i had fully dilated,immediately i was rushed to the delivery room and was asked to push several times,they had to cut me before the baby finally came out,also the placenta i was so happy to see my bundle of joy and all the earlier pains had vanished.
I know very soon, every1 desiring this gift will testify and share their beautiful story.Amen
