I know I have been MIA for a bit, but I’m still tripping along. Many of you know that I am expecting another baby in April (IT’S ANOTHER BOY!) and I’m so excited. I feel that boys are fun and my son can have a best friend as they grow older. My husband and I have another little cub in our “Wolf Pack” So, it’s all good.
This pregnancy has been VERY different though. With my first, there were times I forgot that I was pregnant or that I battled MS because I barely experienced any symptoms. However, this time around the moment of finding out it seems I was reminded every day that I was carrying life and the immediate changes that occurred in my body. I still have weakness in my legs at times, my belly popped out sooner and I’ve been very achy. Through it all, I’m still standing and remaining thankful.
I know pregnancy is a privilege to many and I don’t take it for granted. It’s also a responsibility to our families and communities. What we teach and how we teach our youth can determine how they create themselves to the world. Therefore, raising two young men, holds a lot of importance to me. I promised, their Mother to do my best by them for eternity and I have faith that I will.
Thank you for reading and for your patience as this mama is busy on the Grow.

Hi friends!!! I want to say thanks so much for all the love and support as my family is expanding! I’ve been very tired and haven’t been blogging like normal, my apologies 🤦🏾♀️ however, I do plan to get back on it soon and sharing videos as well. Thanks so much for your patience.
Also, this the reason why I haven’t posted my Tysabri treatment photos because I cannot receive treatment while pregnant. Ohhhh the New Journey! Catch you later folks!
Thanks for still being faithful readers and SM buddies

Normally the type of post I write are geared towards relationships, career goals and encouragement. I’ve slightly touched on a few personal experiences until now… Yep My husband and I are 9 months pregnant with our first child. I’m beyond excited, nervous, and anxious all in one. I decided to blog on this topic because in my eyes I believe pregnancy is not only embraced by the mother (or surrogate) carrying the child but it’s also embraced by her significant other.
I would be lying if I said that I’m the only one pregnant or expecting. My husband and I are expecting our first child and we are pregnant. The things that are constantly running through my head are definitely running in his. Yes men and women have concerns and some are from different angles of thinking but it’s all the same, how to be a great parent and life changes due to the wellness and upbringing of their child.
I do realize that unfortunately this is not the reality for all parents and couples. An expectant mother and father could both feel isolated. In the sense that the mother is experiencing so many changes in her body, hormones and appearance in which her partner is not. Even the father, may feel isolated because all the attention is no longer on him which may be because the dynamics of the relationship had changed. What I believe is key is to continue to communicate and to remember the baby comes from love. Babies are truly a blessing and I’m so happy to embark this new journey.
