You stare at those two lines on a test, and that is when your world changes forever. Once you find out you’re growing a life inside you, everything is different.
People will take it upon themselves to touch your growing belly, constantly comment on your size, and the biggest question on everybody’s lips, 'Are you hoping for a boy or a girl?'
Some women are open about what gender they want, some women don’t mind if it’s a boy or girl, and some women will keep it to themselves, set on the genders they want for their children.
Some choose to find out the gender, so they can hear those three words that will add to the joy of pregnancy.
But for some women, this moment will send them into a spiral of grief, disappointment, and HUGE guilt.
I know this because this happened to me. I am sharing my story with you so you know that what you're feeling right now is valid, and it’s okay.
Watch: Be a good mum. Post continues after video.
My children are my world, my life revolves around them, and now they are all here and a part of our family, I wouldn’t have them any other way. They are who they are meant to be.
