My First Pregnancy

This is my first pregnancy. I have a little human growing inside me and I’m thinking of how blessed we are. Our own baby, our child, our perfect everything. This is one special stage in our lives that we have always dreamed of.

Those feelings for the first time

I have been amazed by every moment so far, even those strong hormones taking over and changing my body in more ways than I could ever have imagined. The sickness part, obviously wasn’t fun but it reminded me that our beautiful baby boy or girl are inside and those hormones are well and truly doing their thing.

Thinking about my mum

All my life I have looked at mum and wondered how she stays so strong? A woman who has lost children but also brought 3 (me and my two big brothers) into the world. She wants nothing but love and happiness for us. To say she has been through challenging times doesn’t even cut it but through it all, she has been a mum, and has always been there.

My mum reminds me how precious the relationship is between a mother and her children, especially as I have gotten older. She makes me think of the love she had for granny (her mum).

My mum’s morning messages are everything. When we can’t see each other at the moment, those rows of emojis she adds to her texts make me smile. She knows how to send voice notes now too so we always have a little laugh, if not with those, over the phone to catch up.

Thoughts and feelings around my pregnancy 

Questions run through my mind, how will I do this or that? But the truth is, no one ever truly knows what they are doing. I believe it all comes to you naturally and we all have our own ways. No doubt I’ll need to have more patience than ever and I might be a little sleep deprived from time to time. That’s something you hear when you announce your pregnant from quite a few people. Does that really matter though? We are bringing a new life into the world. A gentle, miraculous, little one. Now, THAT, is worth everything.

I love seeing my belly grow and I felt little flutters quite early on. The stretches are incredible, although sometimes I’m looking for ways to soothe the aches. As long as our baby continues to grow and stays healthy, that’s all that matters.

One thing I have learnt is to embrace being pregnant, especially after that first trimester when your emotions and the “Am I feeling okay today?” question travels through your mind. It really is an up and down rollercoaster. But now, I want to shine and take away any worry. I want to smile every day and keep looking after our baby, keeping them warm and snug.

I’m so glad I have you

Throughout all of the new things I’m experiencing, there’s no one other than my Danny that I would want by my side. The most understanding (even when I’m speaking in true Tasha language) man there is. His level of care and love he has is endless. And he wants nothing but the best for me and our baby. Truth is, we already got it because we have him.

  1. I’m 25 weeks into my first pregnancy, too, and it feels so different than anything I’ve ever been through! I wish I had your positive attitude about the symptoms lol. I’m more eager to meet baby than to deal with three more months of this discomfort!

  2. This was so amazing to read. I’m in the same boat as you, just almost done with my trimester. The only problem is that, my boyfriend is not ready for a baby.

    If you don’t mind, here’s my story and I would like advice from anyone who can.

    I’m 29 and my boyfriend is 24 and we are now pregnant. Yet, he feels like I have ruined his life. He says ‘i’m still young and I don’t think I’m ready to be a dad..’
    Question I keep asking him, “you think women are born ready to be mothers?” He thinks since I’m almost 30, i’m ready… Yet it’s not like I planned to get pregnant.
    At first he wanted me to abort and I refused. But I feel sorta guilty because of the age difference.
    I want to bring this beautiful child into this world. I’m ready to do it with it or without him. But I love my boyfriend and he was the sweetest person I ever met until the pregnancy.

    Anyone? Advice. What should I do?
