Gospel artiste Kambua has talked about her pregnancy journey when she found out she was expectant with her first child Nathaniel.
Kambua who waited for almost 7 years before conceiving in an interview with The Play House says news of her pregnancy was nostalgic for her.
‘I WAS ON HOLIDAY WITH MY HUSBAND AND I WAS ALWAYS SLEEPY.
I WAS ALSO ALWAYS BLOATED AND I HAD EVEN THOUGHT OF WRITING TO THE MANAGEMENT AS I HAD THOUGHT IT’S SOMETHING THEY HAD PUT IN THEIR FOOD.
WHEN I CAME BACK HOME THE BLOATING CONTINUED AND I WONDERED KWANI CHAKULA YANGU PIA INA SHIDA?
I TOOK A TEST AND IT CAME OUT POSITIVE.’
‘ I WAS SO EXCITED, BUT IT WAS ALSO A MIXTURE OF HAPPINESS AND FEAR BECAUSE I WAS ANXIOUS.
BEING PREGNANT IS ONE THING AND CARRYING IT IS ANOTHER THING.
I THEN DECIDED TO KEEP AWAY FROM SOCIAL MEDIA FOR A WHILE, IT WAS A SACRED TIME FOR ME.
I JUST WANTED TO FOCUS ON BEING A PREGNANT WOMAN. I DID NOT WANT TO COMMERCIALIZE IT IN ANY WAY POSSIBLE.
BY THE TIME BABY CAME, I KNEW I COULD NOT BE DISTRACTED. I APPRECIATE THAT PEOPLE AROUND ME KEPT IT UNDER WRAPS.’
Talking about her motherhood journey she says,
‘MOTHERHOOD IS TOUGH AND AT THE TIME I DID NOT KNOW WHAT I WAS DOING.
HE IS SUCH A BALL OF ENERGY; THE CHILD IS A CONSTANT REMINDER THAT GOD IS A GENEROUS GIVER.’
Kambua is currently expectant with her second child.
As a way of thank giving she has released a new jam ‘Neema’ check it out below.
