Narrative Essay EXPECTATION I still remember the day when I found out that I was pregnant. It was June 27, 2008 and I took the home test and found out I was expecting. First, I was screaming because I was really scared when I saw the result and after I laughed because I was so happy. It was early in the morning. I ran into our bedroom and told my husband. We were both almost afraid to get excited, so he went to get another test. Positive again! We tried three times. It was the most exciting day of my life. Probably, it was in his life too. We feel so blessed for this miracle. I am so excited about becoming a mother and also frightened at the same time. I came to realize, that actually all women, even those who had never been pregnant, were interested in what being pregnant was like. I think this must have something to do with our maternal instincts. Out of my group of friends and my family, only one was already a mother, so the fact that I was the only 'real life' pregnant person they knew, only fuelled their interest further. ...read more.


My lovely husband told me that I couldn't give up because I'm one of the most beautiful women in the world. Then I calmed down I began to eat less and watched what kind of food I ate. Everything eventually settled down as I entered the second trimester. I survived the first few months. There are a lot of joys in the second trimester. I could feel and see things that I had never seen before. For example, the first time I heard the heartbeat, and I understood that I was not alone - my baby was inside me. The first ultrasound was one of the moments of pregnancy, when I could not only hear but see the baby. I cried when I saw him for the first time. When I got home I looked over the pictures of our baby for a long time. Undoubtedly one of the most magical moments of pregnancy was when I felt my baby moved for the first time. It was a funny feeling, when my baby moved inside me. ...read more.


Sometimes I wonder why I even started it. Obviously having your first baby and being pregnant means that your life is subject to some pretty dramatic changes. Certainly it is impossible to forget about a pain that women feel during a birth of the child. I am afraid of physical pain. Thoughts, fears, expectation overflow me. This pleasant expectation mixes up with fear. There is only one thought: when will the end come. I think together we'll survive. I have strong faith that all of this discomfort will be suddenly forgotten as I look over at my gift. Therefore it is not necessary to be afraid of child birth. The main thing is to remain in a situation where I operate fear, and not to allow that fear to operate me. Finding out that I was pregnant was overwhelming, even though it was something I've wanted for a long time. My initial reaction was not what I or my husband expected. My mother always told me: "Don't be surprised if you feel scared or nervous as well as happy, having a baby is a life changing event and it can take a while to get used to the idea that you're going to be a parent". ...read more.
