100 days seems like foreverrrrrrrrr. I guess when Mommas start pregnancy at 280 days, I should be more focused on the fact that I have a whopping 180 days under my belt! BOOYA! Ladies and gents, I'm not complaining I totally adore my pregnancy, I really do.
I've scratched my brain to find the perfect next blog post for a while now. Call me crazy, but I've struggled to talk about my pregnancy and let myself feel excited in front of others. At home, with Mitch, I'm ecstatic, but with other people, it's hard. Yeah I know, judgement moment... you wanted this so bad - what's wrong with you? The reason I've struggled is because I'm caught in this place of trying to find balance between being super excited, and being sensitive to my fellow friends who are struggling. I just remember following people who went through miscarriage and then got pregnant, and I felt like, wait... what about me? Don't leave me behind.
I'm super protective over my friends and followers who are still struggling. I don't want them to feel left behind. I realize that will always be a part of me, it has made me who I am today, and I will never forget the feelings it taught me to feel. How can I somehow incorporate the preggie friends, new Mommas, Mommas who haven't struggled and have beautiful kiddies, and those who still are? I want my blog to be able to reach and connect with all of my readers. I don't know if I'll ever find the right balance, but I think about it everyday.
Dear friends who have struggled or are still struggling: I'm still here for you, I'm fighting with each and every one of you and none of you are being left behind. You've got an army of support and love.
Anyways, 100 days left. I've finally switched to maternity clothes, gained about 20 pounds, and although I'm still getting used to my new body, I feel more accomplished than ever.
A few pictures below from some of my new favorite wardrobe items and a bump pic or two for those that have been asking....
DRESS: ASOS (Maternity OF COURSE)
LIPSTICK: TARTE - TARTEIST LIP PAINT - KILLIN' IT (perfect name right?)
