Pregnant without knowing – I went to the gym to cut the weight!

Wow, where do I even start…

Well, I am 22 years 11 months and 20 days old. Currently on my third trimester, with only 9 weeks left; How exciting!

Now, my pregnancy story is unlike anything you’ve ever heard before! It’s different and unique… Unlike many other expectant mothers, I was caught completely off guard! I missed all those signs and symptoms of the first and second trimester. As a result, I was pregnant for months without knowing it! 

My monthly periods have always been irregular, therefore, when they didn’t show up, I wasn’t alarmed… Well, sometimes I only have them twice a year!

I did enroll to a local gym towards the end of May because I started seeing a constant weight gain and I thought that I was developing a “tummy” because of being inactive. I wasn’t getting any positive results from the gym, three weeks later. Consequently, I decided to go to hospital, accompanied by my mother (bless her heart).

After a couple of blood tests and and ultrasound, we discovered that I was actually 28 weeks pregnant and I was expecting a boy! I had been pregnant without knowing or suspecting.

Needless to say, I was shocked, a bit in denial and confused. I had signs, such as weight gain, of being pregnant, without knowing.

If that little boy isn’t a miracle, then I don’t know what you call it! I honestly can not explain just how excited I am. Furthermore, I can’t wait to hold my boy in my arms; he is my world, the greatest gift I could ever hope for.

Oh, and I am going to be a single mother…
