I haven’t posted on this blog in over a year and a lot has happened since then, as the title suggests. I just reactivated this blog as I’d like to write about my pregnancy and birth story, and also about my feelings surrounding pregnancy and motherhood after infertility. Spoiler: they’re very complicated.
I got pregnant in August and I gave birth to my son almost three weeks ago. Wow. What a whirlwind.
I hope reactivating my blog will encourage me to write and talk about my feelings, but I guess we’ll see. Wish me luck.
For now, I’m debating whether or not I should change the name of this blog. Part of me feels like it’s still appropriate because I am still dealing with the feelings I had before I got pregnant. Those thoughts and feelings run deep and I don’t think I’ll ever let them go, but I also don’t want to be insensitive to my sisters who are still battling infertility. I know how annoying “success” stories are.
