We all had plans for 2020. Plans for travel and celebrations and career changes. Over the course of a few months everything changed our perspective on our plans…and the world.
The coronavirus pandemic came quickly and now we are starting to realize that it’s resolution will not be nearly as fast. One of the 2020 goals for my husband and I was to grow our family. When we realized that things weren’t looking too good in March, we decided to put in a pin in that and wait out the madness. Women were delivering babies in silent rooms with minimal people and it was slightly terrifying. Why take the risk?
Two weeks later, I had a positive pregnancy test.
Fast forward a month and I’m in the hospital, with gloves and mask, staring at an ultrasound screen. Just me and the tech because no visitors are allowed. Just when I thought it couldn’t get more surreal, I notice something odd on the screen. I know it’s been 4 years since I’ve seen a live ultrasound, but I definitely didn’t remember seeing 2 black circles before. I looked at the tech and, pretty sure in slow motion, she says “Yeah, there are two.”
Over the past year, this blog has been a reflection of my lessons in life, mainly around my anxiety and overcoming my own inner struggles to grow as a wife, a mom and a professional. Just like everything else in 2020, there’s going to be a shift here. I’m now 16 weeks along with twins in a “stay at home” environment with a stressful job and everyday struggles. Talk about anxiety! I have every reason to believe that amazing things are coming for our family, but these are definitely unique times. Why not talk about it 😊
