Hope you enjoy the journey forward and feel free to share your own stories soon 🙂
So many of the women that surround me are either pregnant or trying to get there. I understand the frustrations that go along with waiting every single month for ovulation and the 10-14 days to take a test, only to find out that’s its negative. Ladies you are not alone. I created this post in this category so that we can journey together through all aspects. I know that you have heard it all….
1. Just relax, stress won’t help
2. If you stop trying, it will happen
3. Hold your legs in the air
4. Put a pillow behind your back
5. Try this position or that position
6. Don’t use the bathroom for 30 minutes
Yeah, yeah, but when your ready, those are the last things you want to hear. Then you watch everyone around you getting pregnant. I know, trust me. Tell me about it. But it will happen in due time 🙂
To the ladies that are already pregnant, how life changing is this!!! Your back hurts, your eating beef when you were once a vegan, your legs are swollen, you always feel like your cycle is about to start, can’t brush your teeth, your mans cologne and hair suddenly smell repulsive, you pee every 20 minutes, you rush to the bathroom only for 6 drops yo come out, you have to eat a whole meal at 3am…. Sound familiar?? Lol! It seems as if the person that you were is now being altered by the little being growing inside. You never knew just how much you could truly love another human until this little life began to grow. Tell me about it 🙂
Mothers, I know you are thinking, don’t complain now, you are just getting started. 2am feeding, walking, daycare, talking back, homework, bag lunches, school buses, school clothes, attitudes, and the infamous: Teenagers know everything!!!!! I recently became a guardian of a my 15 year old niece and let me say, teenagers are very different then children 🙂 Tell me about it!
