Day 265

I found out I was pregnant two months ago. I had been told in my twenties that it would be hard for me to get pregnant without medical help, for a variety of reasons, so it was a shock to see that the pregnancy test I took on a whim was positive. I was immediately overjoyed and excited and overwhelmed and I still am. 

Mom died nine months ago and she won’t be here for the birth of her grandchild. It’s bittersweet. I’m excited to become a mom but I’m terrified because I won’t have her here to guide me. My fiancée has been great and this baby is already so loved by so many people, but I wish she were here.

  1. She is there, and will be there in ways you can’t imagine, and least expect. Keep your mind open to any and all possibilities, and know that you have a village of mothers who will be there for you.
