Comfy neutrals & uncomfy realizations.

I'm feeling oh so comfy in some neutrals today!  Today marks 32 weeks pregnant and I am overwhelmed with emotion.  Up until the last week, I've had pure joy and excitement throughout my entire pregnancy.  I am finding my emotions have been thrown off with some fear and anxiety for what is to come in the weeks ahead.  For someone who previously was terrified of even having my blood drawn, and wanted to run in the other direction before entering a hospital (the smell, germs and sick people), it hasn't really hit me until now that I will be spending a few days in that exact place in a matter of weeks.

I tend to find comfort in having a plan and have a type A personality (my poor husband) and it is so scary knowing that I cannot really have a plan for the day that my daughter decides to grace our earth.  I can't imagine what my emotions will be the day she comes, but with all fear aside, I know in my heart that I can do this.  I've had to work so hard in my life to have everything that I've earned and being a Mom will be no different.  I will have my Husband and my Mom (who has done this 4 times all natural, no drugs) by my side to coach me through.  

I've questioned even opening up about this because I don't want to seem ungrateful for the blessing that God has given me.  I thank him everyday for the little angel growing inside of me and I find that coming to term with my fears will only help me overcome them!  Becoming a Mom is quite a roller coaster ride, and she isn't even here yet!  One day I'll get to help her through the same fears she may have if she decides to become a Mom.  Knowing that a little person will forever look to me as her Mommy just makes me feel SO overjoyed and lucky (here comes the tears).  

So, my outfit...is probably the last thing on my mind right now.  But I know that you all come here to find my latest fashion and beauty tips.  I hope you don't mind me getting personal on what really is going on in my life.  And ultimately, what is forever going to be most important to me; and that is my purpose as a woman, wife and Mother.

Have a great day xoxo!

  1. Your fears are natural - just remember though: Moms and babies have been doing this for years. Your body (and hers) will know just what to do! :)

  2. I honestly think it gets a little scarier the closer you get. I experienced a rollercoaster of emotions with all three of my kids. But I cannot wait for you to see her for the first time. All your anxieties, fears, and pain are replaced with overwhelming love and joy. It is the best feeling EVER. I can't wait for you to experience it with your little one.
