Acquaintance: “So what are you doing now? Working on your next book?”
Me: “I’m living up #momlife and #nesting. I have my heart set on simply being a mom and take all the mental health breaks I possibly can because being a full time stay-at-home mom is the most challenging endeavor I’ve ever had. My writing can wait for now, but my kids won’t stay little forever.”
What I really wanted to add: I’m just trying to survive one day at a time and have a successful near-full term pregnancy with a healthy baby 👶🏻. I’m scared to death of waking up in a pool of blood and/or hemorrhaging, or being hospitalized for several weeks because of my complete #placentaprevia 🤦🏻♀️. And I’m trying to keep my anxiety in check while also remaining optimistic that my placenta will suddenly shift out of the way and I no longer have to worry about dying in the near future 🙌🏾.
