On Being Pregnant

When I became pregnant 5 years ago I didn’t know at first that I was indeed pregnant simply because I have not experienced the symptoms of pregnant women which are, but not limited to, morning sickness (vomiting), nausea, and cravings for different foods. My monthly period is not always on time that is why I do not take note of when will it happen.

A dear friend of mine was the only one who noticed that my breasts and hips are getting bigger every day that comes so she told me that I must be pregnant, and because I don’t believe her, we bought a pregnancy test to resolve the issue. And yes, I was pregnant and I am happy about it. Getting an abortion didn’t even cross my mind; all I wanted was for my child to be born safely and healthy into this world. I am very careful of the foods I ate and medicines/vitamins that I intake in order to avoid getting a miscarriage or bad effects to my child’s well-being. During my pregnancy, I am glad that I have not experienced low progesterone symptoms as well. And I am happy that I have a happy disposition when I was pregnant and I have been able to avoid depression and anxiety.
Oh, I am just reminiscing the old times.
