When Mr Lighty took a photo of a very pregnant Mrs Lighty on Baby Lighty’s due date, at 40 weeks pregnant, I was determined to remember to get a photo of Mrs Lighty and Baby Lighty once he reached 40 weeks old. And that day is now here!
40 weeks in, 40 weeks out…what’s the difference?
40 weeks of hope, joy and excitement, followed by 40 weeks of hope, joy and pride.
40 weeks of feeling ravenous but being careful to eat healthily, followed by 40 weeks of snatching lunch and dinner between nap times and worrying about what Baby Lighty is eating.
40 weeks of morning sickness, insomnia, heartburn and unimaginably painful migraines, followed by 40 weeks of knowing it was all worth it.
40 weeks of overwhelming tiredness and drinking decaf tea, followed by 40 weeks of a totally different kind of tiredness and a motherhood being seemingly sponsored by definitely-not-decaf tea!
40 weeks of worry, followed by 40 weeks of knowing that that was only the beginning of my worries!
40 weeks of being told that my life would be turned upside down, followed by 40 weeks of having my life turned upside down in the lovliest of ways.
40 weeks of seeing my body change and enjoying gorgeous baby kicks, followed by 40 weeks of baby smiles and holding tiny hands.
40 weeks of an overwhelming, all-consuming love, followed by 40 weeks of feeling that love grow beyond belief.
How your life can change in the space of 18 months! That’s 40 weeks in, and 40 weeks out!
