It's Not Going to be Easy
My name is Dara and I'm a soon to be single mama! I am excited about this new adventure in my life, but I will not lie to you when I say I am scared to death about the next few months. I am due January 6, so I have quite a ways to go. I am coming to the end of my first trimester, and it has not been a cake-walk. My morning sickness is more like all day sickness. Ginger ale is my new best friend, however I don't think I will ever be able to drink it once this kid is here. My energy level is not very high and I feel like I could sleep all day. My boobs have grown so much I didn't think it was possible. This has been the ONLY plus in this first stage of my pregnancy. I even had to buy a new bathing suit because my top from last year doesn't fit me anymore. With all that said, I'm so glad I have a supportive family and group of friends. The father will definately be involved in this little "peanut" (as it has so affectionately been nicknamed by it's Auntie M) life. But I'm so lucky to know that the baby will have so much love surrounding it throughout it's life. This blog is my new hobby to keep me busy, so I will make a true effort to keep it updated daily! Wish me luck!
