Those of you who follow me on Instagram might know that I have been really struggling with the changes that have been happening lately with my body during pregnancy.  I really should have written about this while I was feeling so down in part because I wanted my emotions to be raw and heartfelt. When I read your comments after opening up about the way I felt I cried, like the ugly, need to be alone, grateful cry that surfaces every so often. I realized that most other women have felt the exact same way that I was feeling. I'm disappointed in myself because for weeks I felt this way and instead of just reaching out to other people I isolated myself. 

Today is new day however and for some reason just knowing this isn't an ending point has made me look at things differently. That's not to say I won't have (many) more breakdowns in the future about how I feel I look or the despair that comes thinking you're body will never be yours again. You all have help shifted my focus on the positive things happening in my body. 

I am grateful for you. Thank you for your support and love.
