I am now 4 1/2 months pregnant with my second child and finally I am feeling physically and emotionally great again. It has been such a roller-coaster this time around. I have experienced extreme fatigue, ‘all day’ sickness and doubt in my ability to be a parent to 2 children. I have avoided writing posts until now as i just haven’t been able to share with others the guilt i have felt at not embracing this pregnancy the way i did my first.
My head is now clear. I feel wonderful physically and am starting to take the time to cherish the changes my body is experiencing and embrace the miracle that pregnancy is. It has taken conscious effort on my part to honour what my body needs- good nutrition, rest and exercise being paramount to my physical and mental state.Also, trying to remain present with my son Cooper who is 3 1/2. I think the first 3 months of my low energy and irrational hormones meant that this was a difficult task.
My plan is now to write regular posts and share this amazing experience with you all…..the highs and the lows!
