Pregnancy Project By Juan Martin

Journal

Day 1

I got the baby from school and then I walked home and it cried three times during the trip which was a challenge carrying all the stuff and attending the baby. Later that day I had my friends over for my birthday and there were a lot of babies and with the music playing the crying was hard to hear and sleeping really late plus the baby crying at early ours was hard.

Day 2

This day I had community service plus not sleeping well it was a bad experience I could barely help with the community service because of the baby’s crying and it got me more tired. Later that day I had fanesca and it made the exhaustion way worst I got home late and went to sleep

Day 3

The baby started crying in the morning and it wouldn’t go to sleep it cried from really early up till 8:00 the baby turns off at 9 after all the crying in the morning I barely slept throughout both days around 6 hours in two days. When the baby turned off it was a big relieve.

Effect Analysis

The weight of the baby is an inconvenience for women causing pain to some extent. Socially it can cause discrimination especially in Christian communities. Pregnancy can cause stress and it can lead to eating disorders that can be damaging for your own health and the baby’s. The day to day life changes because of the new priorities it comes with. When there is pregnancy in school it raises many questions and discrimination. It feels the same but in the real situation it would changes drastically. Especially with how much weight you take to school with the amount of books it can generate more discomfort.

Poem

It is all dandy and sweet

Until you are in for a treat

This baby will not let you sleep

Two or three

Times at night

Cries with all his might

Five am

I would scream his name

To make him go quiet

It is the worst it can get

Conclusion

There role of a father in pregnancy is to support your partner but it wasn’t like that all the time it has evolved to be a more equal job being a parent. There are many fear such as responsibilities that can cause fear like the cost of having a baby, being a good father, being a good role model, the dedication it is required, and how you can help your child have a great future. It was a worthwhile experience this project but I wouldn’t repeat it. I learned that the role of parenting is more tiring than I thought. The project didn’t really change my opinion about pregnancy. The time of the project should change because it feels rushed. The hardest part was getting some sleep.
