A bunch of moms have written to me about how they were trying to get pregnant after a baby-sitting session and didn’t know how to talk about it.
They thought it was weird and awkward, but they felt uncomfortable, so they kept it to themselves.
But then one of their partners, a cute pregnant woman named Nina, showed up at their event, and they started chatting.
“I had been thinking, ‘Why can’t we talk about this now?'”
“Why can you not share this with your partner?”
Nina went on to explain that the pregnancy was caused by an infection and that it had nothing to do with her eating too much, drinking too much or going to the gym.
She went on, “It’s really about not letting the pregnancy go, letting it happen.”
Nina has been trying to conceive for a year, and she wanted to share the news about her babymaking journey with as many people as possible.
She’s been through so much and wanted to tell her story so others could know how she’s been able to do this.
“There’s not a single thing that I’m embarrassed of.
It’s not because I don’t want to be a mother,” she says.
She shared her pregnancy-related story on Facebook with more than 1.5 million followers.
Since the post went live on November 23, Nina has shared over 50,000 times.
Nina says she has been able not only to share her story, but to also make new friends, find other pregnant women and find out more about what it takes to be pregnant.
And because her pregnancy was brought to light, Nina says her experience has inspired other women to share their stories, too.
“It made me feel good about myself, and I felt like I didn’t need to hide what I was going through,” she adds.
So what can pregnant women do to prevent unwanted pregnancies?
To start, Nina suggests talking to your doctor about how to make sure you’re not pregnant while you’re having sex or while you take your medication.
And if you’re worried about getting pregnant while breastfeeding, Nina recommends breastfeeding in a separate room, or in a room where you can talk to your partner without being in the same room.
If you’re trying to have sex, Nina advises getting an abortion.
“This is the worst time in your life, because you have no control over how long your pregnancy lasts,” Nina says, adding that if you can’t have a baby soon enough, you’re less likely to have another one.
And even if you don’t plan to have a child, you can still have an abortion once you’re ready.
Nina also suggests trying to be honest about your fertility history.
“My partner doesn’t know what to tell me, so I’m going to tell him,” Nina told me.
“You don’t have to tell your partner what you’ve done.
If I told him, he would think I was lying.
But if I told my partner, he might think I’m lying.”
Nina says that she wants to share what she has learned from her pregnancy with other women in order to help them find the balance between letting their body be its own, and not being judged by their partner.
She hopes that the stories she’s shared will help other women avoid pregnancy.
“Don’t make the same mistake I did,” Nina said.
“Just let it go, let it happen.
We are beautiful and we are beautiful together.
And don’t let this baby get in the way of that.”
