With Tai, I kept my pregnancy a secret for the first twelve months. A lot played into this decision (I was wary of early losses, after having had one before, and also super nervous about how to share the news), but looking back, I loved having the secret all to myself for a bit (my hubby knew too, of course.) I was able to unwrap all my feelings, to deeply absorb what it meant to me to be a mom, and to release some fears that I knew would not serve me in my journey.
And so that's what I'm doing with this new little creative baby of mine. I'm holding her tight, putting all my love and energy into the process, and working through some fears that are still holding me back.
I can't wait to share with you!! --when the time is right ;)
