As you are all aware, Faith Muturi is with child. But her pregnancy experience has been no walk in the park due to nausea and swollen belly . But it hasn’t been all gloom and doom as Faith has had a lot to learn and appreciate during her pregnancy.
Things I have embraced in this season & found treasure in, even when it doesn't quite make sense:
* Heartburn. This has reduced significantly :) yet as this trimester progressed, it forced me to take more milk, which I had been advised to do :) * suddenly I'm being called 'Mama'. Twice someone has called me from behind- msichana or Madame and when I turned, they were like 'Oh sorry- Mama...' The title does come with a lot of respect. Nashukuru
* Not being able to reach my toes easily- enjoying being spoilt by hubby who helps me wear boots, rubs my feet & this season, I get to enjoy pedicures a lot more:):):)
* Nausea- this was a stretch!! It continued till a week or so ago. Sielewi!! Yet, it reminded me to give thanks for good health. I think I remember vomiting only twice in my entire life before this season. I could go for a decade without a headache. This season gave me a new level of compassion for the sick & I prayed a whole lot for people sick in hospital etc. Wee hours moments of lacking sleep have reignited special moments with God in prayer and intercession.
* Bonding with women, couples and family friends on a whole new level. Community has become real in a whole new beautiful sense. Learnt a lot from people's shared experiences and gotten lots of care. As for the awkward questions like 'Bado hujazaa, hajakuja?,..' I am learning to take it easy & developing great comebacks for a shared good laugh! I told a friend last week- "Hapana, alikuja! Huyu ni wa pili!"
