It’s the most amazing time ♥
Yesterday was my first day of maternity leave and I got the spend the day with my amazing friend and her little boy and then the evening with my lovely pregnant friend! Plus the weather was b e a u t i f u l – I really can’t think of a better way to start maternity leave, even if it hasn’t sunk in properly yet that A we are having a baby & B that I don’t have to go to work for potentially a whole year!
My longest dearest friend of ten years is currently 20 weeks pregnant and I remember getting the message on my phone and just starting crying at my desk, like full on crying, you know when you just know how much it means to that person and how they are just so meant to be on this journey and you cannot wait to watch them become a mama and watch their family life grow, well yeah all that was buzzing around in my head.
Having a baby is the biggest blessing but to have someone on that journey with you and understand the ups and downs means so so much. When I had Rue I struggled a lot, I had amazing support from my family and friends but none of them were in the same position as me so they couldn’t really understand or appreciate those really tough days where you just cry from tiredness. This time round for me at least I have two amazing mamas right there by my side supporting not only me but my family too and I know it’ll make those hard moments much easier knowing they understand and know what to say.
I’m so thankful we have you both on this journey with us and us with you also, love you both ♥
