I look back at this picture and remember it being one of the best moments of my life. I’ve never felt so content with my body, my relationship with Justin, and my life. I think about how full my heart was that day. How hard I worked growing the baby, carrying the baby, and then delivering our sweet Leo.
Luckily with that pregnancy and delivery everything was perfect. Fast forward a few years and my pregnancy with Annie couldn’t have been more different. I had debilitating exhaustion, feelings of depression and a lack of interest in almost everything.
I just wanted the pregnancy to be over. Luckily with both children I never experienced any postpartum depression or anxiety. However, motherhood can be a roller coaster of emotions. Every morning you wake up with a bursting feeling of love and appreciation and by 10 o’clock you’re on a caffeine overdrive with nothing in your stomach and ready to run for the hills! 📸 @jillian.harris

I Love it🎈🎈
This is my first pregnancy and I am going with the same feeling of depression and fatigue, not interested in any of the routine worj
Love this 🙌
I had my baby last night. 21 hours of labour, epidural failures, waves of pain, depression, body shutting down and resisting the urge to faint. Body gave up and actually started regressing my dilations. Finally doctors decided on a c-section after seeing how weak I was. They knew I couldn’t hold out much longer let alone push.
