I am so relieved the news is finally out. Sharing that I am pregnant has definitely made it feel more real. One thing is for sure, I am feeling the love and it is so appreciated. Right after I announced yesterday I got really sick again, my body was like hang on we’re not done yet. If I’ve learned anything over the last few months, it’s that I have to take it one day at a time, sometimes one hour at a time. Something that has been hard for me to get used to but the only way to get through it. That said I am really itching to get back to work and find even a tiny bit of a routine so here’s to hoping for a few good hours each day. Wishing all of you a great weekend.
