It feels so good to feel good!
12 days postpartum and I’m slowly starting to feel like the best version of me again. Pregnancy was hard. I know a lot of women LOVE being pregnant and for them the process feels magical and full of goddess- unicorn- mystic energy. Lucky y’all. Was not the case in my life. For me it was filled with daily projectile vomit (my lowest point was throwing up all over the elevator of a restaurant I love and am now probably banned from 😩😂), constant nausea for 9 months and more. I was elated to be having my son but feeling sick everyday ALLLLL day, raging hormones, not sleeping and rarely leaving the house (see: projectile vomit) had this extremely independent, motivated, working and adventurous woman feeling depressed. The process taught me something special though. I got a master class in patience & surrendering to the moment. It is 100% possible to be wildly excited about ur baby and your new life but not be in love with being pregnant. We have to start sharing our real transparent experiences with other women so they can find the support they need and stop the self-judgement. Also, I say all this to say...life is all about the peaks and the valley’s. Difficult seasons will always pass and reveal blessings you cannot even fathom in their wake. Im so grateful and I’m loving every second with Quest! ❤️❤️❤️
