I’m three short weeks away from being at 20weeks, the half-way mark of my pregnancy and I’m very grateful. We’re one week away from finding out the gender of this sweet baby of ours and seeing he/she on a 3D ultrasound! This baby has been giving me the best skin along with some beautiful stretch marks. “Granny-panties” are my number 1 go-to, a lot of “didn’t you just go pee” from my husband after 5 seconds of just peeing and needing to go again, & my morning stretches are a must. Pregnancy can be a little bit of a scary experience. Especially, for first time mamas. The constant thoughts of “are you doing enough for you and the baby, are you eating right, are you getting enough exercise, are you resting enough”, and the list goes on. Learning to stop being in fear and truly take a breath and enjoy my growing baby. Our bodies are made for this. I’m so very lucky to have such a good support system and to live close to my family while taking on this amazing journey. Why hire a doula when you have a kickass mother?
