Well, here we are at the tail end of June. I feel like I’ve been through a hundred different walks of life over the past few months, and I’m only now able to stick my head above water and take a breath for a second. And I’m about to enter an entirely new walk of life, one that will change everything forever.
I’m 12 weeks and 5 days pregnant. I was feeling nauseous with no explanation (Conner was fine so it couldn’t have been something we ate). It was nothing like migraine nausea or food-related nausea, so I was at a bit of a loss to know what the problem was. And then it went away for two days, and then it came back! At this point I was starting to wonder, so I took a pregnancy test, and lo and behold, I was 3 weeks pregnant.
We weren’t expecting this (or planning it!) but I was so happy when I found out. And now, everything is different, forever. I feel like I’ve barely settled into my new identity as a wife and all the changes that come with that, and now I have to adapt to this new one as well!
But more than that, a Mom to me is nothing less than a superhero. My mom is the one I call when I don’t know what to do, or when I need advice, or when I just need a friend. She has all the answers (it seems to me). And now I have to be a mom? Whaaaaat? I’m just Veronique! I definitely don’t have all the answers and I feel like I barely have my life together. I’m still figuring out how to pay taxes, for crying out loud.
So yes, there’s a bit of terror mixed in with the excitement, but I know I’ll figure it out. Conner and I will figure it out together. So…here’s to the greatest adventure we’ve undertaken, and that’s saying a lot!
