Not to go all too serious but one of the things I genuinely wasn’t anticipating was the absolute emotional rollercoaster. I naively thought I’d probably spend the entire 9 months in a bubble of positive feelings, why wouldn’t I? I have a baby on the way after all.
In reality, after the excitement of finding out, announcing the news, having a gender reveal, all those things in the early months. I started to feel really low and unmotivated. Our little ones arrival seemed so far away and there wasn’t really anything I could do besides try and support our surrogate. It was just a very unusual place to be, emotionally.
So yeah, I wish I’d have known that my emotions would be all over the place long before the baby arrives…
