As we get ready for a new, exciting chapter in our lives, I've had a hard time figuring out how to best use my spare time. I've been wanting to update you on all the amazing (and not-so-amazing) things happening, how I've been maneuvering maternity style, and a peak inside our home renovations to accommodate a tiny human.
The truth is, I've been resting. I've been trying to find my way through a changing body, new aches I didn't know could exist, desperately attempting to make sure we're ready when the big day arrives.
But - a mini update: Baby is doing great. Growing at a healthy pace, living her best life occupying every inch of my stomach, consistently pushing against my ribs and at the same time, on my bladder. I'm doing fine - third trimester has been much harder than the rest, and these past few weeks even harder. I have less than two weeks until my due date, and trying to accomplish ALL THE THINGS before she arrives.
I find myself breaking down over how hard it is to physically get out of bed 5x a night when your thighs ache, you weigh an extra 40 pounds, and indigestion is at an all-time high. And to be completely honest, the fear of how life will change is probably the hardest part of it all. I've reached a point at 29 where I feel like I've found myself, and some semblance of balance, and I know this new stage will probably shred that all to pieces. Change is hard for me. And the unknown makes it even scarier.
Still, those rough moments are met with the sweetest, tiny kicks in my tummy, anticipation for discovering who our little girl will become, excitement to discover a new way of living, and an overwhelming feeling of gratefulness that we are able to do this thing.
Anyway, in the coming weeks, I'm looking forward to sharing more maternity style, nursery essentials, and some new home decor posts...so stay tuned, my friends!
