‘I was always sleepy and bloated,’ Kambua talks on her pregnancy journey

Kambua with her son

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.’

Kambua added,

‘ 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.
