As I’m sure you have seen by now, we’re expecting and are so excited about it!
Finding out I was pregnant brought on a whirlwind of emotions. I mean, when I was about to take the test I knew that I could be, but it is a whole other story when you are actually looking at a positive test. I won’t lie I went from being excited, to scared, to panicked, to realizing I had to tell people. I figured I should start with my husband, who I will mention was the in the WORST possible mood that day. I quickly put together a card – because I can never do anything low key, and went downstairs to let him know the big news. To my surprise he was so excited! which actually put me at ease and made me more excited.
I feel like I’ve spent a lot of time asking people how they’ve felt while their pregnant, and after the last few months I feel like everything I’ve been told has been a lie.
Pregnancy has not been easy.
I’ve spent far too much time either feeling like I’m going to throw up or throwing up.
And despite what people kept telling me, this did not completely go away after the first trimester.
You also turn into, honestly, an emotional mess. Anything can set you off – I’ve cried because I just can’t get comfortable.
But overall, it really is the most incredible thing to experience.
My advice, don’t really listen to what people tell you. Everyone will have their own experience – and you may even have a difference experience with each child you have.
But try and enjoy it, even when that really doesn’t seem possible.
It will all fly by!
