It was June 2016. I had just returned from a trip when I noticed some weird things happening to my body. Then came the missing start date.
To say I was shocked is an understatement. It never occurred to me that I could get pregnant - my health was a hot mess rollercoaster ride of digestive distress, extreme adrenal fatigue, and thyroid problems. Talk about the trifecta of yuck!
Instead of transforming into a magical unicorn of joy and excitement, I sunk into a cycle of constant fear. Have you ever been broadsided?? One day, you're cruising through life, the world is your oyster.
The next, BOOM! All reality shifts.
Motherhood is magical, but it seriously changes the way we look at our bodies, our needs, our future, and the way we value our contribution to the world. It’s easy to backburn your goals and dreams for the good of the family.
Mama, when you tell your struggles, I hear you. I’ve been you and now I’m here to help you.
