I am so excited to finally have this put together and ready to present to you. I have wanted to have a platform to share Rooney’s life and my journey into motherhood for so long. I finally got my crap together and here we are. I can’t thank everyone enough for the support with becoming a mother, it truly takes a village.
Becoming a mother has been a crazy experience, but has also made me so appreciative of others around me. I never thought that I would be so excited and enjoy it so much, which I hope doesn’t sound awful. I think I expected it to be long days where I was miserable and dying to go back to work, and yet for me I couldn’t feel more opposite. I have taken on way less work because I have felt like I needed to be home with her so much more. I had a working mom growing up and I know she worked insanely hard to make things work, but I also told myself I would do everything I had to do to be able to stay home with my kids. I feel like I am constantly trying to find ways to show my gratitude for the opportunity to be home.
One of the reasons I wanted to have this blog and platform is so that I could share stories, inspiration, and hope for the women who are going through infertility, miscarriages, or who truly just need a community to help you feel not alone. When I experienced my miscarriages I felt like I had no where to go, I didn’t know what I could trust online. While I will be finding a lot of my information online, I also want to share your stories. I want all women to feel hope for this step in their lives. It honestly has shocked me over the course of doing research, how many women suffer from a miscarriage, and how many have one and don’t even realize. I know that had I not taken a pregnancy test with my first one, I never would have known it was an actual miscarriage. I would have thought my cycle just came late. With that said, I also love to celebrate women who are becoming mothers in general. I know that when I was trying and I had friends get pregnant so easily I wondered why me. Thinking about it, I would never want it to be them though. I jokingly had told a few friends, I had 2 miscarriages so you don’t have to have any. I will take one for the team. Now while that is not how it works, I truly do hope that no one has to go through the pain. 2 of my best friends after having troubles getting pregnant, are having babies this summer and fall. Aside from my pregnancy I truly haven’t felt so much happiness. If you are struggling or know someone struggling hang in there, and stick around for some tips to help someone going through fertility troubles.
Motherhood has absolutely been the best role I have ever had, but building a community of women around me has really built me up and made me feel so empowered. I want this to be a place to share content to help uplift others and also share products that have been helpful and would be a honest testament to items for you to also be able to use!
I hope you enjoy following along!
