Hi there everyone,
Sorry for not writing since April (jeez louis!) but I have been rather preoccupied…..
I’m having a baby!
No, really, I am. Am currently 28 weeks along and I have enjoyed every second of it. I’ve been very blessed (knock on wood) that I haven’t had to endure any morning sickness or anything so I’m having a pretty relaxed time with it all.
I’m very happy with my body and as most of you may be aware, I have struggled with body image for a long time and so for me to be embracing my body like I am is something that I never thought would happen. Mind you, it hasn’t been easy. I have had a couple of comments from one lady at my workplace and while I have been able to laugh them off at the time, when i have thought about it later, they seem rather inappropriate. The first comment that came my way was “You are going to be quite large aren’t you?”, and the second one was, “You’ll get fat drinking that…”.
Now, as I say, both comments I have laughed off but both have been rather bizarre comments and some which I deem to be inappropriate to say to anyone let alone a pregnant lady. Like, would you really go up to someone who wasn’t pregnant and say that sort of thing? It just gets me a little bit annoyed because it has taken me all my teenage years and almost all of my 20’s to get to this point and the one time that I am uber stoked abu t the way that my body is changing and these comments start popping up. Sorry to whinge about it but I have found that being pregnant and having these things being said to me are really..I don’t know how I feel really.
Other then that I have honestly had the best time being pregnant. And lucky for me I also have a fantastic support group around me of family, friends and some work colleagues who have made me feel like the luckiest girl in the whole world. And of course, I can’t forget my partner of 2.5 years, the father of my child who has done an amazing job in looking after me and Bub. Honestly, I could not be happier with my life right now and I can’t think of any other way that it could be better (apart from having Bub already here but that is not going to happen for another few months…..)
Anyway, that is all from me for now. I will keep you posted with anything new hopefully and I hope you are all as well as I am.
Have fun and take care.
