Oh Baby!

Submitted on May 3, 2012 by  soniaroy79

Today I step into my third and final semester of pregnancy. Each time my baby kicks me it brings me immense joy and closer to understanding what it meant when all you sisters mentioned the joy and lease of life that you got when you saw your children. I am so looking forward to motherhood.

My medicines began with my second trimester. Health has been a little unpredictable - initially I use to throw up a lot, my appetite decreased and on and off there were fevers, severe headaches, weight loss and other ailments. Most people who didn't know the truth would say "You are having a difficult pregnancy.." and I would agree, only I knew there was more than just that. With the excitement was a lot of nervousness and anxiety. I just prayed everyday my baby is safe inside.

Then last week I visited my practitioner. My viral load had gone down to undetectable and the happiness of that moment made me forget all the discomfort I was going through. Eagerly waiting for these couple of months to pass soon and praying every day.

Your's Sincerely,

Your baby will be healthy. I started taking my meds at 28 weeks & my angel is fine.She's the cutest, adorable and loving baby. To think that I considered abortion...I thank God I didn't take that root. Your faith in God will give you strength daily. Good luck!
