272 days, 39 weeks
For 272 days I carried my little boy inside of me. And damn, I loved every single minute.
Friday, June 12th 2015 at 5:30AM, I found out I was pregnant. My husband was getting ready to leave for work, and for some reason I woke up and decided to take the test. BAM! Just as he was getting in his car to leave, I ran outside in my pink polka dot robe and let my hubby know he was going to be my BABY daddy LOL. Happy Friday babe!
Being pregnant & growing a babe has got to be my greatest accomplishment. Sounds cliche, I know, but it’s true! Don’t get me wrong, there were moments where it was hard. Mornings where I had to stuff my face with crackers or else I would be physically sick on the GO train heading in to work. But in all honesty, even through the tough times, I absolutely loved being pregnant; morning sickness, swollen everything, massive stomach, constantly pee-ing, heartburn & all!
I am also feeling suuuuper nostalgic as we approach Bray’s first birthday. The last few days I keep thinking to myself ” this time last year I was…” and I can remember how flippin excited I was to meet my little human. All I wanted to do was smother him in kisses…and I haven’t stopped doing that since he was born! If every pregnancy & birth I have is anything like the one I had with Brayden, I will be popping out 5 of these cute little munchkins (just don’t tell Stevie yet)! I swear, I would give birth to Bray all over again…100x.
I am so happy that I took (almost) weekly photo’s of my growing bump; it is so fun to look back at now! Plus, apps like Photofy have super fun watermarks for your bump pictures!!
To all of you soon-to-be-mama’s who may be struggling with any obstacle of pregnancy… just remember that it is not always easy but growing a life has to be one of life’s greatest blessings. Even when you have lightening crotch… even then.
I can’t wait to share with you Brays birth story…on his birthday. It really is a special one.
