There have been some epic moments of pregnancy, and I have learned so much – about myself, about my body, about how amazing of husband I am so lucky to have, and I’m so glad I’ve shared these experiences and lessons through my blog.
Here are my top five moments/blog posts from the past nine months…
My maternity photos – I love, love, LOVE how the pictures came out, and our photographer Denise (my former boss) is absolutely a gem to work with. So blessed, and so glad we got the ONE spring day before Baby hits the scene to have them done.
My “birth plan” – which I posted a day before we found out our little man is breech. Thankfully, I’ve accepted the cesarean, I’m okay with it. It wasn’t in my ideal plan, but the thing I learned about giving birth is you really can’t have a plan. Not to mention, I’m just thrilled that it’s made it easier for us to make plans with family, and not dealing with the “is he here yet?” questions is kind of a blessing.
On being sidelined during Pregnancy – not being able to run or really workout comfortably during my pregnancy has been super disheartening and often frustrating. Thankfully, I met some awesome ladies through my weekly prenatal yoga class which I can’t wait to go back to when I’m post-natal (i skipped my last class Saturday).
Learning the Art of Spectating – because pregnancy sidelined my fall running goals, I got to cheer on hubs when he ran the Army 10 miler this past fall and loved it. I also learned that being a spectator is not NEARLY as easy as one thinks.
Pregnancy and Body Image – learning to be okay with a changing body is no easy task, but loving your body and all the changes that come with growing a human being in your body is amazing in and of itself.
Narrowing down 9 months of amazingness to five blog posts was not easy BUT you can check out all pregnancy related posts here.
