Baby! Baby! Baby!
So a few weeks back I shared my Instagram Click here to Follow that I am having a baby. Thank you all for your sweet messages.
I had my first baby 9 years ago and so I knew I was the real ninja and I was sure that I would go through it this time; walking on sunshine!But boy oh boy! Who I’m I?
I do thank God for the opportunity to carry another baby and co-create with him, do not get me wrong. I just thought that having a baby later in life would be easier and less stressful but it has not been like that for me because some days are good and some I just want to cry, which I do!
Do you think it is wrong to compare my experiences carrying a baby? I cannot seem to help it. When I was pregnant with Imani, I found out after 8 weeks and so I had not morning sickness! My skin was glowing and my boobs were getting bigger and my bum was getting rounder and I remember thinking, I am so sexy!!!! Fast forward to 2017 and things are different. I have to call Mr.Q when I am almost home so he can open the main door and the bathroom door because the minute I leave the car and make it upstairs, I literally dash to the loo to empty my body of anything I had managed to eat because everything tasted like a mattress mixed with cement!
Talking of Mr. Q, boy aren’t I glad we are still married as I write this. I am sure he has no idea who I am. True Story. One day I came from work and went through my nausea evening routine. He was getting ready for work and was ironing his shirt. Believe it or not, out of nowhere, I just started complaining of how he is not a good friend to one of his boys! I went on and on until the whole scenario was flipped by yours truly to how I don’t like how he is adding weight!! All the while, this man is quiet, probably asking the God who was present at our wedding day to show up and help him. I managed to calm myself down and have something to eat only to start crying when he was leaving for work because I did not want him to go. Again I ask, Who I’m I?
Despite being a hormonal monster, I would not trade this journey for anything in the world. I have heard that down the line, things get better. I cannot wait. From experience, I know all these go away once the baby comes and I am excited just thinking about it.
I really thank God that writers block is slowly wearing off and maybe I can work on a regular posting schedule and revive this blog.
I would love to hear from you, just to know how you have been! Leave me a comment.
Stay Blessed, Stay JoyFul,
