A few months ago if you asked me if I knew what it meant to be pregnant I would have said, “Sure I know about pregnancy. It’s that nine-month process women go through to make a baby, right?” Oh silly, naïve, non-pregnant girl that I was. As I stumble through my seventeenth week of pregnancy I so wish I could go back and tell my former self, “Baby, you got it all wrong!”
Back then and even to this day, I am what you might call pregnant and clueless! There are so many mental, physical, social, relationship – everything changes that I go through every day; I am never sure if I am making the right decision or using the right resources. But some how with lots of late night tummy rubbing sessions from the boyfriend and heart to heart conversations with other women, I mange to jump over the hurdles and make it to another day.
Along this journey to new life, I am learning a thing or two about my life. I figured that since I enjoy chronicling practically everything else it might be useful if I jotted down some of my newfound wisdom for other women who might be pregnant and clueless like myself. Honestly, if not for my family and friends, I don’t think I would have made it to month four! But I’m here and willing to share the few things I now know.
