About Getting Pregnant before Marriage…….
I believe if I say that, people might say I am not setting a good example, but I think society is just too hard on most of us. Its good to get married, it’s the right thing to do, but then again if you are a woman and you think you are getting to a certain age and you want to have kids and you meet a responsible guy who hasn’t yet proposed but wants to do the same thing, it depends on you and him. You can go ahead and do it; if you think the guy is right and responsible and he makes you happy, why not? Marriage nowadays is just a huge ceremony and a huge wedding.The whole marriage thing, that name is just so scary. I wondered if the pregnancy was planned. It was and the truth of the matter is, it’s been something that I have been waiting for since I turned 29.
About her man………..
On my 30th birthday, I was in Venice in Italy. I remember the night before my birthday, I called my mum and I was crying, I cried, I was so sad, I was seeing someone else then and he was an ideal guy and everything. He took me there for my birthday and he proposed, but I didn’t put it online. I am one of those people that would make a lot of noise on stuffs like that. He is somebody I would have loved to have a family with but then he wanted to move to London. My whole life was going to change because of him and it’s not something you should do, you don’t have to change your whole life because of a man…because of your marriage. I had nothing I was doing in the UK, so I decided that I just had to chill, maybe see what the future holds and keep praying for someone else to come around. Its quite funny because someone proposed and I didn’t even get to have a baby for the person and then this person who hasn’t proposed I’m having a baby for him, so it’s a vibe, it’s friendship, its understanding, it’s how happy the person make you, it’s not about someone putting a rock on your finger and you forget.
About her pregnancy……….
I pray to God all the time and I tell Him that I want to start a family and have kids of my own. It was part of my prayers so I just knew that I’m not afraid but this is what I want to do, So when I did a test and it came positive, I was truly happy. But the hard part was having to tell my mum. I remember telling her I was pregnant and she was so shocked and her first words were but you are not married and I replied her back yes mum I know and then it was a long conversation.
