Hello, my dear friends! I have been meaning to write this post for a long time but had no time! It is high time I shared with you the greatest, most exciting news ever! My life has changed completely due to a wonderful fact! I am 4 months pregnant! The universe has decided to make me a mommy and I am really overwhelmed with joy, happiness, bliss!
I have never been the typical kind of woman whose ardent wish is to become a mother. Most of my friends at the sight of a baby would scream with excitement but I was completely indifferent! Truth is (please don’t laugh!) that only when I saw puppies I used to say “oh, you little thing! God you are so cute” etc! I also claimed that I didn’t want to have kids, unless something changes dramatically inside of me (never say never!). It is obvious that at that time I had not met the right man to inspire me! When Kostas came into my life, everything changed! Creating a new human being that would be the fruit of our love and would “contain” both of us sounded as a wonderful dream…And I thank God that gives me the opportunity to live it!
Here in Greece thins are a bit strange for women over their 30s that are not married and have no kids. Many people are judgemental and make you feel bad about yourself. They think that the destination of a woman is to get married and have kids. Period! This is more intense in small cities and villages. I tried to close my ears and not give a damn about what people said.
All I wanted was to live a happy balanced life and wished God sent me a good man in my life. If I had paid attention to what they said I would have made wrong choices, I would have married a wrong guy and would live a miserable life just trying to be socially acceptable! Thank God, I was smart enough not to care about what people said or thought about me. I got married at 38 and got pregnant at 39 and my conclusion is that you have to do it your way, be patient, have faith and hope, accept things as they come and go with the flow! Don’t panic, don’t be in a hurry!
My pregnancy is great. No nausea, no vomiting, I just feel tired and sleepy. I stopped running and the funny thing is that I don’t miss it. When you feel tired, you don’t wanna work out, right?As far as my nutrition is concerned although my doctor recommened to start eating meat, by no means can I do that. I try to eat real food, I avoid processed products and have a balanced nutrition. I don’t want to gain much weight and I try to be careful. You see I used to be fat and don’t wanna go through that again…Thankfully I have gained only one kilo so far!
I would love to hear your experiences, girls! Leave a comment under this post! Did you have a good pregnancy? Did you change eating habits? Did you practice? Did tou gain weight? Don’t hesitate to share your stories with me!
Time goes by quickly and I hope that everything goes well and that I will give birth to a healthy small creature! I don’t know if it is a boy or a girl yet. I will let you know as soon as I know! Kisses from me and my little baby!
