28 Weeks Later


The day I found out I was pregnant I thought to myself, "Oh, I'll have so much to blog about, it's going to be easy keeping up regularly with my blog".

Yeah, right.

My first trimester kicked in and all I did was sleep. I'd come home from work and tell Wendell I was just going to lay on the couch for 20 minutes and then I'd get dinner started. About two hours later he would wake me up and hand me a plate full of food. On weekends I napped often; sometimes just a couple of hours after waking up.

Once my second trimester gave me most of my energy back I read, and I read a lot. About what to expect, what was healthy and unhealthy and how to be as organic as possible. I daydreamed and I window shopped, A LOT.

Blog? What blog?

Now that I'm a mere three months away from motherhood I've been thinking constantly about the kind of example I'm going to set for my child and future children. After all, parents must be what they want their children to be. If only it could be as simple as "Do as I say, not as I do". While I still haven't figured out what I want to do when I "grow up" I realized I have to stay true to commitments I make to myself; keeping up with this blog being one of those commitments. If I can't follow through on something I enjoy what kind of message will I be sending to my child? So, here I am, making a promise to myself for all the world to see. It's the first step towards changing the things I don't like about myself; for a better me so I can be a better role model to my kids.

This should be quite a journey.

You will be just fine on your journey my daughter. Love and devotion will show u the way. With it will come worry, anxiety but also so much love. The most wonderful thing is worth it all as u look at your child and hold her in your arms. I love you.

I have been enjoying reading your blog and, I must say, we think pretty much the same way when it comes to certain things. I definitely have had to adjust my speed limit remembering who my new passanger is!
I'm excited for you and the start of your new and improved family...blessings! And I wish you a smooth and quick delivery!!
