Switching from a solitary workaholic to getting married and starting a family

Our little family's perfect!

I am a very busy person and my job for a long time took up all of my time and threatened to completely ruin my social life. I was missing out on all the normal things that the everyday woman enjoys in her life. Being fully engrossed in my work, I could not have time to go out and enjoy evenings with my girlfriends, I could not have time to visit my family, and I did not have enough “me” time.

I decided to make a turnaround in my life and allow myself to also enjoy other aspects of life. I made up my mind to observe strict working hours that allowed me some time in the evenings and over the weekends to go out and engage in other social activities.

At first, this was quite difficult since as you can imagine I had become rusty in social life skills. I did not have any friends too. Most of my friends had drifted off and found other friends. Many people who I had been associating with were workmates and colleagues whom I met through work.

My situation was saved when I met my would-be husband.

One evening after work, as per my new resolution, I was determinedly sitting out an hour in a fancy restaurant in town. I was having a cool fruit juice as I watched a fashion show on the widescreen television set in the salon. Beside me was a good looking gentleman who was having a margarita. He also seemed to be watching the show.

I assumed that he was waiting for a date and so I paid him no mind. Just as I was about to wake up and leave, he casually asked me something about the show, I cannot remembered what the question was but somehow this started a conversation that lasted several hours. By the end of that night we knew we were meant for each other.

A few months later we got married. A few months after that I was pregnant.

By the time I was getting pregnant, things were moving very fast for me. My husband had literally turned my life upside down and I was living a fairy dream. Things were all so beautiful. The discovery of my pregnancy made it even more so.

Before my husband came to my life I had almost lost all hope of ever having a family.

As such, I was quite determined to make my pregnancy as successful as possible. I loved my unborn child so much that I wanted to give it the very best of life from the time I discovered the conception.

I was keen to take all the prescribed pre-natal vitamins that my doctor prescribed. I was also very keen on observing a healthy diet – a diet that would provide the very best nourishment for my growing unborn child and also nourishment that would make me strong to support it.

To make myself physically strong, I had to do some physical exercises. During the early months of my pregnancy I used the home rowing machine which my husband used to work out, later I switched to taking walks around the neighborhood.
