the truth about my second pregnancy, miscarriage, perinatal depression and finding strength
It’s been harder, and it’s been easier.
Hi, I am an OCD constantly stressed full-time working mom to a VERY busy toddler but haayyy....at least my closet has its act together!
Getting to this moment on live TV where I felt comfortable wearing a sleeveless dress literally took decades, but man, I feel so free.
Turns out, getting back into this kind of shape after having a baby would do irreparable damage to my back.
Nine months. Nine months of feeling sick, fat, hormonal, tired and more happy and excited than ever before. That about sums up pregnancy right there in a nutshell, eh? :)
Just gonna be real here:
momma ain't never giving up her glass of rose. I can give up dairy, sugar and queso (yea that's a food group in Texas) but I refuse to give up the one glass of happiness I reward myself with at the end of the LONG day.
And here's the thing: I DON'T HAVE TO!!!
GRUMPY. For no particular reason at all. Maybe exhaustion, maybe hormones. Who knows. All I know is I woke up one Saturday morning this February and couldn't shake this nagging feeling of being upset. Do you ever have that happen, where you just wake up in a bad mood? It's the worst! Hard to shake it the rest of the day.
