How is it somehow already the second half of May? With everything going on right now, I haven’t even focused on the fact that this year (like every year, I suppose) is flying by. I imagine this is only going to get worse in the coming months, but we’ll just have to take it one day at a time. I’ve been wearing this maternity jumpsuit outfit on multiple occasions recently. I’ve worn it to lunch, to a memorial service, and to a foodie event. It’s incredibly comfortable and since I’m not trying to hide or minimize my “bump” anymore, it’s perfect!
As we get closer to the end here, I’m starting to mellow out a bit. I know that things are about to get hard and I’m not going to get nearly enough sleep, but that’s not getting me down. It’s been interesting to hear so many people try to “warn” me about what’s going to happen. There’s no point dreading the bad parts to come, so I’m only looking forward to the good parts. Ignorance will be bliss until reality sets in, right?
I shared in my post on relieving signs of stress everything that I’ve been doing for myself during my pregnancy. Another part of that is just starting to feel comfortable in my own skin. Of course, I still see and feel the weight gain.
Interestingly, however, I’ve looked back at photos of myself before pregnancy and I’m so much nicer than I ever was. I have an appreciation for what my body has done, but also when I do for my body regularly! I’m hoping that when I’m back to my normal size again, I’ll remember these positive thoughts!
