If you saw my Instagram yesterday, you know that I made a very, very special announcement. If not, I’m feeling extremely blessed to share that Baby Friedman (my married name) is coming early 2018. All the feels right here!
I’m 22 weeks and feeling good finally! The morning sickness and migraines for the first four months were pretty brutal, and truth be told, are to blame for why I was pretty quiet on social media all summer (got lots of questions about that). Good news is that I’m back in action and feel like my old self again: energized, positive and ready to take on the world.
Through the rough times, I tried to stay positive and focused on practicing gratitude, albeit, I’m not going to pretend like there weren’t really hard days. There have been many, but I can’t tell you how ready I am to be a mother, and how fortunate I feel to be in this position. While I’m ecstatic to share my news today, I share it with the utmost respect for all women out there who are on their own journeys to becoming mothers, wherever you may be in the process.
Along with the announcement, I wanted to drop a line on the blog to give you a quick look into how this blog will run with the newest addition to the fam! I promise that this isn’t going to turn into a mom’s only blog, but I’d love your feedback on what you’d like to see (or not)! Please let me know if you care to read about things like my pregnancy style (which I’m in the midst of figuring out with a growing bump – the struggle has been real), how I prepped my body for pregnancy, how my diet has changed, my personal struggles, what clean beauty products I’m loving as a mama-to-be, nursery decor, etc. Or, if you’re not into that at all?
Also, I’d love to know, how many of you are moms?
