I can’t even express how happy I am to FINALLY announce my pregnancy. The last 5 months have been a roller coaster to say the least full of morning sickness, emotional confusion about how my life is going to be completely different, an unbelievable amount of joy, medical tests, and worry about pretty much everything.
It wasn’t up until 4 months into the pregnancy that I started feeling a bit more like myself, the morning sickness aka all day sickness had subsisted and I decided that I was going to trade in fear for faith. I decided instead of making myself sick over if I was going to be a good mom, or if the baby is ok, or what my new life is going to look like I empowered myself by saying I’m doing the best I can at this moment and what will be will be. I was kidding myself thinking that I even had control of some things.
I found a good balance by list making (Evernote is the best thing ever) and mediation. Empowering myself was key. Taking control of not being able to take control, made a world of a difference.
Once the fear fell away there was room for love, happiness, gratitude and good vibes only and I now feel like I can enjoy more of my pregnancy and this gift that is growing in my belly. My husband and I are so over the moon about her and cant wait for her to be here with us in 4 months.
