My life will never be the same.
On Wednesday, January 9th, 2019; what I thought would be a regular doctor’s visit for acne and acid reflux was a positive pregnancy test. Craziness!!!!! What should have been the happiest day of my life “so they say” was filled with emotions. I cried, I laughed, I was angry, I was confused, honestly i was everything but happy. I contemplated getiing an abortion but God had bigger plans. Not only was my relationship holding on by a thread but I couldn’t imagine being a mother. Not because I wouldn’t be a good mother but because I was too selfish to give everything up. I was at my prime, living on my own, my career was blooming, I was becoming debt free, life as you know it was GREAT. I spent a majority of my pregnancy in florida (where I was living at the time) alone, except for a few close friends that made sure to call and come see me. Brillainty, entering my last trimester of pregnancy I decided to move back to Boston. To be closer to family and to give birth where I felt the most support. Best decision I ever made but it came with some adjustments (that’s for a different blog post). The morning of August 14th at 9:41 AM my little human came into this world with full force weighing 7lbs 1.2oz and 20 inches long. She was everything I ever dreamed of and more, she was my air, my light, my strength, my life. My heart was full, my tears kept flowing, my arms were shaking, I gave birth to my heart in human form. 33 hours of labor, 2 hours of pushing, 2 hours of stitches were all a blur. My life changed with just a simple measurement.
