MBGN World 2014 Iheoma Nnadi and her husband, Super Eagles Striker Emmanuel Emenike, welcomed their daughter in August 2017 and to celebrate her first birthday Iheoma has shared some throwback maternity photos on Instagram.
She added a sweet nostalgic message taking a look at her pregnancy journey and the past year of her daughter’s life.
Back when some blogs wrote that I was pregnant, I didn’t even know I was actually pregnant. I was quite annoyed. Yes! I knew I had gained weight, but can’t a woman gain weight in peace again?? I believed it was “happy weight” or from the injection. Hence my response?♀?♀ I also had irregular periods, so it wasn’t a big deal not to see my period.
One day, I decided, let me actually go and check as I started having food aversions, nausea, fatigue etc. I found out I was 11 weeks in!!!! I sat in my car for a complete one hour!
God was truly taking me on a journey that I felt I wasn’t ready for. However, carrying her was an exciting and beautiful journey.
I realized that I was way stronger than I thought. I’m so blessed.
I never missed an appointment, always repacking my hospital bag and cleaning the house?. During my third trimester, i always wondered what she’ll look like, I couldn’t wait for her to come.
My little-big baby is 1 today. Her first year on earth. So thankful to God for this journey, blessing, her good health, her cheerful self and her loving dad.
@emenike_9 u genuinely make parenting easier. ❤ you two play all the time and eat together from the same bowl ???? We had a beautiful family shoot but right now, I am not ready to share her with the world, I don’t know if I’ll ever be ready to put her face out there but just say a nice prayer for her & wish her well. ?❤? My daughter is ONE!!! #isittimeforbabynumber2?? #Loveandpeace
