No matter how long we hold them or how they come to us, our babies are all miracles! Getting so excited to hold + kiss + add this babe to our adventures!
So many asking me how I’m feeeeeeling. TBH (as an #enneagramfour 😅) it can be difficult to explain how I’m feeling without giving an exhaustive detailed report about all the happenings in my life FOR FEAR OF BEING MISUNDERSTOOD. But I don’t want to share all the happenings, so I’d rather just say IM FEELING A LOT OF THINGS. The experience of being misunderstood feels like torture to me which is something I am working through, but as usual, I’m living in the tension of grief + gratitude, pain + grace, loss + gain. It’s a full life 😅
I’m proud of my hussle to get things done. I’m blown away by the support + generosity of you all. I’m beyond grateful for the space we have been offered to make home. I am overwhelmed navigating all the pieces of this journey & I am humbled to walk it. I am finding my footing and gaining confidence as I make decisions on this unique journey. There is anxiety + stress, but with the daily choices I make to care for my whole self, I am no longer having frequent anxiety attacks or wondering how to get out of bed. I am not crippled by decisions or the fear of what may or may not unfold or how I’m disappointing people who love me, who I love.
Being pregnant is hard and uncomfortable, but it’s also a downright miracle, a gift full of beauty — much like motherhood. I know I’ll miss this belly when it’s gone, and it’ll be empty a lot sooner than I realize!
To all the mamas incubating humans, document document document! This time fliiiiiiies & even if you’re feeling insecure about your changing body shape and the extra on it..it IS beautiful. It is a gift, one not everyone gets (or chooses) to receive. It is powerful. YOU’RE GROWING A WHOLE HUMAN IN YOUR BODY.
Women are amazing and I best not forget it. ✌🏻grace to you on this Monday. - 3 hours ago
