Good lord I’m exhausted. This ‘growing a baby’ business is pretty unrelenting. Everyday I seem to go on a new journey of self love via acceptance of my body, my limitations, and getting to know this baby taking up valuable real estate previously dedicated to housing other important human organs, like my stomach which now apparently resides in my throat... Heartburn, you’re a cruel and unrelenting mistress.
My tiny human already seems to have such a strong personality! From the first moment the baby guides told me I might start feeling movement, our new little friend has been a ball of action and energy. Part of me is excited to see what they’re bringing to the party and the other part is face palming myself saying “oh of course your child wouldn’t ever know how to sit still or be calm for just a moment even in utero!” Here I was hoping this bebe would take after my husband... but then again, even though Josh appears to be the chillest man, he gives me an absolute run for my money with what he’s able to accomplish.
I had a checkup with my midwife yesterday and it was bliss to hear our baby’s heart beating. I popped into @ today buying some preloved teeny tiny clothes helped me feel slightly more prepared for their energy.
I’ve begun a new ritual with my @ affirmation cards! I recently welcomed these into @ and today I was delighted by the gentle reminder within the deck. Growing another human does seem like a miracle, but also being able to produce art and bring my community closer through creative connections feels like magic too.
I might feel exhausted from growing this new life whilst simultaneously running my business but it’s the good kind of exhaustion that has meaning & leaves me going to sleep at night deliriously happy that I am able to work so hard at something I love so much.
I’m teaching my last Macramé classes for 2018 this weekend. There are two spots left if you’re keen to join me and round out the year with your own little magical creation. I’m hoping to teach again in February but I’ll also be 8 months pregnant soooo... perhaps I won’t feel up to it? 🤷🏼♀️😂❤️. Much Love, Maggie May
