Q & A Pregnancy journey, motherhood journey, breastfeeding and loosing weight


I’m 32 years young and I found out I was pregnant at 5 weeks


Wow! My first trimester was rough. Morning sickness came in the form of Fatigue; I would get so exhausted either early in the morning or in the afternoon and sometimes both in the afternoon and in the morning. I also struggled with understanding my body when I started gaining weight. I didn’t know how to dress it especially when going to work. This wasn’t easy for me since I had never had such a rapid weight gain, eventually I got a hang of it and bought stretchy dresses and tops that would push me through the second and third trimester.

My pregnancy journey

I found out I was pregnant in July 2019 and I was surprised, pleasantly surprised for that matter. We had been trying to conceive for the last one year it just never happened. I remember a few months earlier I went to see a gynaecologist for a pap smear and I also had a scan done to check if I had any issues internally  like uterine fibroids or endometriosis  and my results showed that I was perfectly okay. So here I was looking at my positive pregnancy test results with mixed emotions, I was happy that finally our prayers were answered we were pregnant and at the same time I was scared of a miscarriage because I had gone through it before.  

Having gone through a dark time when I had a miscarriage was one of the reasons I kept my pregnancy under wraps for a while. I wasn’t ready to tell everyone so only my family and close friends knew about it until when the bump started showing in the second trimester that is when I confidently talked about it.

So now that I’m ready to talk about it, I’ve briefly summarized the memorable moments of each trimester.
