Cravings, Emotions and Other Pregnant Stuff

I was recently approached by the girls over at Cord Mama to share some thoughts on my pregnancy. My initial response: "I'm huge. I'm over it. Let's have this baby!"


...But then I read the rest of their email and saw this list of questions:

  • How far along are you?
  • How are you feeling physically?
  • How are you feeling emotionally
  • How have you been preparing for childbirth?
  • What do you love most about being pregnant?
  • Any cravings?
  • What makes you feel best right now?

My 9-word response wouldn't cut it. I actually had to take some time to think about these questions and formulate a coherent answer. Do these girls know I am pregnant!? Thinking is a lot of work!!

But pregnancy brain and all, I made it through the questions and am so grateful to have these thoughts written down! You see, with my first two pregnancies I maintained a Belly Book Journal full of thoughts, current events, and photos. I bought a Belly Book for this pregnancy and wrote in it diligently the first few weeks, but then I got hit with Week 8 Nausea and the Belly Book got tucked away in my nightstand never to see the light of day again...

Until today!! I am SO HAPPY that I'll be able to print off my answers and include them in the book. I am also re-energized to start writing in it again and to finally print off some pictures to include as well.

THANK YOU Monet and Kelsey from Cord Mama for making me think!
