37 weeks!! 🎊🎊
If you asked me a year ago if I felt confident I would be celebrating this milestone, the answer would have been a big fat no. 🙅🏻♀️
We had just lost our second pregnancy and I was traveling to LA for a leadership conference. I remember seeing pregnant women and new babies everywhere. 👶🏼
Literally like everyone in the airport, on the metro, in the hotel... they were all beaming and glowing with their big ol pregnant bellies or newborns in tow. It was like being lost in a sea of healthy, happy pregnant women and new moms. 🤰🏻
I returned from that trip (after a lot of margaritas 🍹) with a renewed sense of hope and was motivated to take a new approach to self care, our fertility journey and growing our family. 🙏🏼
In reflecting, the foundation of what I knew then is no different than what I know now..
I believe there is healing in transparency and shared life experience.
I believe we are only faced with what will contribute to our inner & outer strength.
I believe in miracles.
Believing this in my core has allowed me to celebrate this moment today. 💕
So if you’re in the shoes that I was in this time last year, have faith. You’re only seeing me, and all of those big round bellies and new babies because what you focus on E_X_P_A_N_D_S. 👐🏻
We are not alone. And we’re better together. 👭
Stay open to some new ways of thinking, some new ways of doing, and most importantly,
MAY YOU, TOO, BELIEVE IN MIRACLES. ❤️🌈
