Living Apart from my Husband During COVID-19

27 weeks and little peanut is the size of a head of cabbage 🥬

If you missed my stories yesterday, I decided to share some of what’s been going on with me, little peanut, and our family. I’m not one to share my struggles – I really like staying positive and showing you joy. ESPECIALLY during this time with COVID-19. But I’m learning that sharing my struggles shows I’m human, and I just do it in hopes to connect with you all more, because you have all shown me so much support on this journey, I knew I could continue to count on you for prayers and support. #recoveringperfectionist .

A little over two weeks ago, Cody and I decided to live apart temporarily since he works in a hospital and with me being pregnant. I cried about this for days, before and after I moved into my amazing mother-in-law’s house. I kept replaying all of the what if’s and wondering how long we would be living apart like this. I worried about him missing our growing baby and upcoming baby appointments.

But a week went by, and then another, and we are adjusting well. We were in a long distance relationship for five years in college so we know how to do this. But of course, with us being pregnant, different things worry me now.
.
But I know this’ll end. I know we made the best decision for our baby that we could at this time, and that Cody won’t miss out on anything. Our love for our baby has only grown right now, not dwindled.

I’m in a much better head space after feeling those fears, taking some time to journal them out, and realizing what my truths are and what God’s truth is.

May you find peace during this time, too, friend. It IS within you, I know it. “Peace I leave with you. My peace I give you.” -John 14:27 ❤️ @ Birmingham, Michigan
