Forgetting it’s my week in rotation to jot down a column left me stumped as to what to jot down about.
It has left me sitting right here staring out the window questioning simply what to jot down about this week. As my coworkers threw many concepts as to what to jot down about on the market at me, I’m but nonetheless undecided as to what I wish to share this week in my column.
One concept that was thrown out at me was the fun of being pregnant. As I’m having fun with being pregnant, even whether it is scorching and depressing outdoors, I nonetheless at the back of my thoughts have scary ideas being pregnant on the earth we dwell in in the present day. Being pregnant within the warmth of the summer season, though I’m solely half approach there has definitely made me look ahead to the cooler days.
Don’t get me mistaken being pregnant is definitely a pleasure and I’ve loved the final 5 months of it and hope to adore the following 4 months of it. Nevertheless, enthusiastic about the world we dwell in in the present day and the whole lot happening on this world has me scared.
Why you could ask? We’ve rising circumstances of COVID throughout, many members of our troops are getting killed preventing for our nation once more and simply a lot extra.
Some might say, oh COVID is only a virus, you could be proper however it’s nonetheless very scary particularly when you may have your life and another person’s to consider and to maintain, together with my son that has began college and is going through it first hand there.
Wanting on the world from a pregnant girl’s stand level in my view is scary. To assume some pregnant ladies might have been pressured to endure little one start with no one being there with them, I cannot even start to think about.
Sure, lots of the restrictions have been lifted, nevertheless I nonetheless have 4 extra months to go in my being pregnant and the numbers are nonetheless on the rise. Who’s to say we received’t be positioned in one other shut down from now till my due date?
Not solely is COVID scary, however to me having a son that his father and I are elevating to the most effective of our talents and with a daughter on the best way, I can’t start to think about how any of the relations of our troops really feel once they get deployed.
I can think about it’s an uneasy feeling, since you sadly by no means know what might occur. Nevertheless, we additionally don’t know what might occur for us that aren’t within the navy both. We’re not assured tomorrow.
On the finish of the day sure, I’m having fun with being pregnant nevertheless, the best way I see the world now being pregnant with my second little one and the whole lot that’s going down is rather a lot totally different from the best way I noticed issues once I was pregnant with my first little one. We weren’t dwelling in a world large pandemic once I was pregnant with my first little one.
There are people who I’m certain go on dwelling their on a regular basis life like issues which are going down on the earth in the present day can’t occur to them, however they’re mistaken.
Rising up, having kids and going through the world as an grownup has definitely taught me that you just by no means know what tomorrow might carry.
