over a year ago we started trying to have a baby. truth be told, we wanted one before we even got married. it was just who we knew we wanted to be: parents.

months passed. the negative tests and silent defeat were devastating. even with timing, ovulation trackers, apps, stress reduction and so much more, pregnancy didn’t happen.

overall, waiting was the most difficult part for us. waiting for another month. waiting to test. waiting to become parents and feeling the unknown of what we’d have to do.

eventually I felt as though it wouldn’t ever happen and let go of the expectations I put on myself to become a mother. I felt the beginning of depression coming on.

so I stayed focused on the things that lifted my spirit up in the best way. friendships, less work, baking, long talks with my mom. exercise. good nutrition. lots of cuddles with Milly. and quality time with my life partner.

then out of no where: almost a year later and two weeks after our first fertility appt to see what was up, we found out we were pregnant! it was the greatest joy of our lives.

I share this because everyone’s journey to get pregnant is different and often unexpected.
no one should be shamed because every mother, expecting mother and future mothers count. let us let go of the judgment, the jealousy and the negativity and learn to lift up each other when we need it the most 💗 no matter your situation, let us give empathy and kindness.
