Becoming a mother is...well, it's a lot of things. Its amazing, exciting, and quite terrifying.
This month has been rough. Not only have Todd and I faced some major financial stressors, but my Lupus symptoms have been flaring and have become acute at times.
To be honest, I am anxious. I question how well I will be able to be a mother with Lupus and an anxiety disorder. There is already so much to learn in being a new mother, but to also learn how to manage my pain and fatigue while raising a small human is...overwhelming.These next few months before Little One arrives, that is how I am focusing on preparing my heart. Patience, grace, joy, and hope, for when my body gives up, my spirit will keep fighting.
