This transition period of slowing down my physical activity to waiting for this baby to come is so different for me. While I lament over the sound of my alarm jarring me awake everyday to remind me to get up and get ready for work, I am definitely a person who enjoys a routine and doing a job that I feel I'm good at. Obviously, a baby has no routine and I'll have no clue as to how I'll rate on the motherhood scale.
I've discussed over and over how I'm just trying to "go with it" when it comes to raising this baby of mine but as the weeks wind down, I'm just...anxious. Excited, yes. Happy, yes. But, also very anxious.
People are so kind and often remind me that most women never really feel ready and that I shouldn't be overly concerned. I try to keep that in mind when I start to freak out. It's not always easy but, it's something. Perhaps it was all kismet when the kind folks at Oh Baby Chic reached out to me. I was really struck by their mantra of feeling beautiful AND empowered to take on the new role of motherhood. The company takes this mantra seriously and supports the non-profit organization, EveryMotherCounts. With every purchase, $1 is donated to support the organization's mission to make pregnancy and childbirth safe for all mothers.
I wore this super soft and comfy tee all day and whenever I passed my reflection in a mirror or window, I couldn't help but smile at the phrase.
