Despite my insane character of procastination, I am 85% of a planner and 15% spontaneous – so i usually think about almost every aspect of my life before i take action, from simple things like an outfit for a 2 months in advance event, what i share on social media, to serious issues like finances, education and the posts i publish on the blog. For those that know me too well know that the 15%spontaneous can go a long way -if you know what i mean and for someone who doesn’t know me well enough might think i am no planner.
After days and weeks of thinking of the appropriate time i would share with you lovelies the most precious and exciting news of the year, i decided today was perfect. It’s my birthday and God sent my gift a couple of months early. I must admit that i thought about not sharing this on the blog and then i thought to myself…..”This is the greatest part of your life, why not celebrate it?” and what better day to celebrate with you guys than on my birthday, so here we are ALL SO BUMPY!!
I am having a baby. We are having a baby guys – remember it takes a village to raise a child LOL. Even after months on this journey, i am telling you i still can’t believe i am going to be someone’s mama😊. Guys, i am adding “mother” to my already existing titles – I Know! I still can’t believe it either. Despite the fact that i like to plan my life, this wasn’t part of my many plans for 2016 but Heeey better believe it when they say the best things in life are never planned. Being the type of person that believes in God’s timing, when i found out i was expecting i didn’t have even an ounce of regret. Gurrlll….i was over the moon and if i had told you this wasn’t in my plan, you would have never believed me. Thanks to PapaG for being even more excited than i was- this gave me more strength every single day.
This has been such blessing from God, i have been blessed with good health and courage through out this journey and now you must be wondering how i managed to deal with that morning sickness? If i started to describe morning sickness i would be such a liar because i didn’t even experience 10 minutes of it- Thank God!! With all things beautiful, i must admit it has not been one hell of a journey as there are so many opinated people out there who don’t know when to shut up. Yes, everyone is entitled to an opinion but most times it’s best to keep that opinion to yourself. Coming from a big family and a huge social circle, i have had to deal with so many irrelevant opinions and judgements from the” few” friends, family, mention it which took a toll on me some days and i have never had such a long roller coaster of emotions like the one i had in the last couple months. I partly blame myself for allowing to jump on that roller coaster and let people dictate what i can and can not do with my life – i mean i am a grown ass woman to have all these people up my butt, telling me when i can or can not have a baby. I believe no one has a better plan than God, so if am having a baby before marriage or having a baby too young -it’s all God’s plan and what matters most is my happiness. That’s a mistake i made and you should never make –Once you are happy with You, don’t let anybody ooze any negativity in your space. It was sad seeing some people not celebrate my big news and instead judge me harshly and i am sure someone right now is doing the same thing but one thing for sure is that roller coaster sailed a long time ago, I am Happy with Maya and the rest doesn’t matter.However can i pose for a second? Yes! I have the most bomb Dad and best support system ever, i wonder what i would do without you guys.
For those that know me know that if anyone needs some adventure in your life, i am definitely not your girl however these last couple of months have been such a beautiful adventure for me – not knowing what to expect has kept me on my toes every single day and i have absolutely loved it. I have learnt so much on this journey and will be sharing my thoughts with you guys one in a while. And now you got an explanation to the weight gain i have been ranting about in my last taking stock series. The kicks and movements always feel like its the first time.
Happy Birthday To Me!!
