Hello friends and hello world! I have been away for sometime again but this time I have some very good news. I hope all of you are doing great especially autumn is coming. 🙂
It’s not so secret anymore to my family, close friends and my followers that I am pregnant. YES! JE SUIS ENCEINTE (I am pregnant)! I wanted to keep it for ourselves first (carpe diem) that’s why I did not mention anything about it except after the first trimester I started posting some hints about what’s going on with me.
It was in the cold winter of February when we learned that I am expecting. My husband noticed that I am already delayed for few days but I shrugged off the idea because I don’t want to be disappointed if the test turned out to be negative and besides I felt like I was delayed because I was doing all the physical exercises to keep me fit and healthy. My husband brought me to ski (my first time) and as expected all I did was roll down the ski mountains stumble and fall. I enrolled in zumba class and I pushed myself to ran like 14 km. Really! I am not expecting that I will be pregnant with all the activities I was doing.
My road to pregnancy isn’t a peice of cake. The mood swings, the pregnancy hormones that try to haunt your weird imaginations and oh! those never ending weird dreaming marathon arrrgghh plus you have to deal with the physical changes your body is undergoing.
I had a rough road to my first trimester. I had so much of the morning sickness. I ate then puked it all the way. It was not easy. There were times that I felt like I’m gonna puke including my intestines and oh my morning sickness strikes not only in the morning but anytime of the day. I felt so weak and just wanted to lay down in bed for my first trimester. I don’t feel doing anything even if I tried to and it adds up the weather. It was the peak of the winter during my first trimester. So much laziness. I have to commend my husband for being so patient with me. For dealing with my not so good self during those days and up to now. He really did a great job with all the support he is giving me. Thank you husband. You are the best!
Second trimester is the best ever. I started to go out as my morning sickness bid goodbye. The weather also cooperates as it is already Spring. How good it can get? Right? I felt better each day and really enjoyed this stage. We started going to lakes, walked and enjoyed every moment of my pregnancy.
We travelled to Italy for the summer to visit our home and spent summer there as we live close to the beach and during the heat of the summer I am into my third trimester. I was scared at times and worried about giving birth but of all that, I am very excited to know that I am almost there and can hold my baby in my arms in a few months.
At the start of my third trimester, I feel so weak again that I walked like a penguin. I read about it and that it’s normal and I should just continue with light exercise. I went to swim almost everyday as I don’t want to miss the summer activities. We went to a 16 hour road trip from Italy to our home in Nancy due to traffic rested for a day back to road trip again for almost 12 hour drive to the South of France to Monaco for five days and back to our home in Nancy. I did all the walking and exploring knowing that in a few months I will be enjoying the most important event in a woman’s life. I enjoyed every second of it. I’m travelling with my baby already.
Now, as I am almost in the finish line of my pregnancy. In three weeks, I will get to hold my baby in my arms and enjoy every moment of it. My plan is to have a normal vaginal birth, no epidural at all. I wish and pray everything will go well. I ask you my friends to please pray for me and my baby for our safe delivery and journey.
Stay fab even when you’re pregnant. God bless you all.
