We’ve got this. We’re building a family. Let’s do it – together!
Hey baby. It’s the last day of 2020 and I just wanted to write a little note to you. We, at this stage, have just a few weeks to go until we meet you. definitely gonna cry while I write this.
I was doing so well. It’s only a few weeks to go and I was in such a good place. And then tonight I lost it … I broke.
Finally admitting, in week 16, that i’m not enjoying pregnancy.
I appreciate that many others have been pregnant before but this journey is my own and I am free to feel it and live it however it may be without “shoulds”, judgement or shame.
I’m sick of people giving advice as if they are the expert on pregnancy, or know more than me, I’m living it. Now. So at this moment … i am the expert!
All the feels! Trying to grow a human and get on with work, and manage expectations and love them already is hard! Week 15 and I was really feeling it!
This week was hard! And shitty! And I didn’t realise how personal I would find pregnancy to be, but it is deeply personal!
Talking about pregnancy books, dealing with parents, moments of excitement, while still coping with sickness. This is week 13!
The #IcallBSontheglow journals continue: Week 12. This was a tough week, little one. Mama had really turned a corner the past two weeks, I felt quite normal, still nauseous, and still throwing up 5/7 mornings, but definitely a lot better.
All the feels in week 11 of my journal, realising my limitations and how hard growing a baby can be.
Someone asked me what I’m looking forward to after my pregnancy, and it really got me thinking. Some of it isn’t the typical stuff and some of it really surprised me as to what I miss. It’s often the simple things we take for granted.
Pregnancy gifts, being told when to tell other people about the pregnancy, and generally feeling pretty shitty. This was week 10.
