Why do we give up so quickly?

Why do we give up so quickly?

Why do we give up so quickly? We never give up trying when we are a baby. My 7 month old attempts things, a hundred times.

The bliss of the 2nd trimester!

The bliss of the 2nd trimester!

The bliss of the 2nd trimester! Wow we made it through the first trimester and what a challenge!! Working full time, keep up appearances, keeping our secret, getting through the genetic testing, blood tests and scans. It’s a relief to be finally comfortable sharing our baby news. To say it was a battle would be an understatement, I was more sensitive, waking up dizzy in the mornings and feeling nauseated unless I ate every couple of hours. Preparation was key….
