Saturday June 21st Hubs and I found out our lives will be forever changed. We are going to be parents! A tiny life has begun... I have had a lot of "feelings" in my life, but the one I had that morning when the second pink line appeared on the test... that is a feeling I can not even begin to describe and certainly one I will never forget. A tiny life, a tiny human, my child... growing and changing by the day, inside me... A love more powerful than I ever thought imaginable fills my heart. So completely overwhelming and scary, yet completely awesome at the same time!
We waited quite some time to announce to our family and friends and once we felt the time is right, we announced at the gym and than on the book of faces. Today I am letting the blogging world know, sorry your the last to be informed. Today, I am 16 weeks and 3 days. Already well into the second trimester.
Its been quite some time since I have blogged last. I started to feel like my posts were sounding forced and I was stressed about keeping up and keeping any interest for anyone out there who actually reads this. I never wanted this to be a place where I "had" to post, but where I wanted to... a place to mind dump. A place to share my thoughts, struggles and triumphs of a CrossFit woman. Hopefully, a place that other people could come to see that the thoughts and struggles that they might be feeling are normal, that someone else has been right in the same shoes that they are wearing. That it can and will get better.
Having said all that, I decided that it was time to get back into blogging to share the rest of my pregnancy... the greats, the goods, the bads and the uglies... I have looked over the interwebz and there are certainly plenty of CrossFit Mamas out there that blog and/or have websites. I am certainly NOT saying that my way is the "right way" or what I am doing is the right thing for anyone but myself... I am simply putting my story out there for others to see. I am by no means a Doctor, nor do I claim to be so please please please dont do anything without consulting a Doctor or Nurse. This is my disclaimer and will probably appear on every post!
So here goes nothing.
