Woah! I wish I had started this earlier. Women!!! We are really strong n we get called the weaker vessel all the time… but God dey sha. Thank God for this opportunity n I hope I would do it right. I am already 30 weeks gone n counting down to EDD.
I have moved on from weighing 68kg to 76kg. My diet have changed over time from craving jollof rice n beans at the early stage to anything that has excess pepper. Fruit juice to Lucozade to Ribena n now strictly water. At a time i started craving stout👎🏿. I took in a few glasses before I cautioned myself. In pregnancy we eat for two… yes but moderation is the key. I remembered in my early stages when I craved cold water. It was so bad that I was chewing ice block n ice cream 🍦. A day came when I could barely get out of bed cos of the pain on my calf and the first question the nurses asked at the hospital was do you take cold water n my reply was yes. They advised I stop which I felt would be difficult. One of them told me that each time I craved cold water I should remember the pain omo na so that craving take die.
I thank God for the journey thus far n pray for strength in this last weeks.
