A topic hot on my heart right now.

So much about pregnancy and the journey to motherhood remains taboo.

I say fuck that!

After spending the past couple days feeling 100% positive I was pregnant, only today to find out I am not I can honestly say i’ve spent the latter part of the day being a royal hot mess.

Now I know all about ‘staying quiet’. I grew up on a family who was the master of secrets. My grandmother couldn’t have children, my mother was adopted, my mother having experienced 9 miscarriages during her previous marriage… but I saw what staying quiet did to them.

We have to be brave and share our stories to empower the next generations.

Our thoughts, feelings and mental state matters.

A woman’s journey to motherhood is never perfect. 1 in 2 will experience a miscarriage. And many others worse.

I was blessed with my first born. We fell pregnant quickly, didn’t really try and my pregnancy was pretty much fine.

We couldn’t dream of being so lucky with a second…

With a shift working husband and a clingy toddler the time to make such things happen are rare to impossible. That’s not to even mention the fact that I only like my husband 5/7 days of the week, i’m always tired and sex is the FARTHEST thing from my mind 🤣 #hopehubbydoesntreadthis

So as I pop the ‘negative’ test in the bin I take a moment to think of all the other #soontobemamas and let go of all the emotions.

I know that it’s OK to feel sad, to feel let down, to want it to be real and so much more.

I dive into the pool and let the water wash over me. Like a cleansing of my aura, my emotions and my body.

I have lathered myself in a concoction of oils consisting of Rose, Geranium and doTERRA Console. I roll some doTERA Forgive over my heart and I gently breath and know that tomorrow it will all be ok.
