If I could go back and give myself just

I’ll be honest, the mom guilt has been so real these past few weeks as I get closer and closer to having baby.
I feel terrible that Maisy Jo’s life is about to be so different, and there’s not much I can do to fully prepare her for that.
It took all of my energy just to make it through the day. I struggled for months with horrible depression. I cried more than my baby did.

I so badly wanted to be that perfect mother I saw all over social media.
BLESSED to be having such a different pregnancy this time around. I swear it’s because I’m having a boy this time.
