Today I will share how I found out we were pregnant with Galahad.
Let me know if there are any other things you would like me to talk about!! For more info, open me up ~~
Story of Galahad's Birth:
How we Told our Parents we were Pregnant:
So yes, I was very very young when I found out we were pregnant with Galahad! I skipped a year of high school so I was 17 when I graduated and entered university.
Michael and I always talked about marriage and our marriage hopes, plans, and general marriage stuff since the beginning of our relationship. We initially wanted to get married in 2017 but that date got sooner and sooner because we just didn't want to wait as long to get married.
When I was graduating high school in 2012, we decided that we wanted to try to get married in 2013 or 2014 however, in the summer of 2012, we were speaking to both our parents and of course they wanted us to wait longer but I wish we both could've better articulated our feelings, goals, visions, hopes, and desires to our parents and our parents could've listened better to us rather than just imposing their thoughts or expectations of us too.
Anyway, to cut it short, they said it's better to wait and that was really giving me a lot of anxiety, mostly due to how my babyhood, toddlerhood, and childhood was like, I was really anxious and had a deep rooted fear of people isolating and abandoning me and it of course translated into my relationship with Michael.
I felt like Michael would abandon or throw me away like I felt as a child with my friends or my mom who had to work 11 hours every working day and was always controlling or angry with him as a defence mechanism for myself.
When we got pregnant the fall of 2012, I was glad in a way and was happy to start a family not far from the date we were originally going to get married. It did end up to be a great learning and humbling but building time for both of us and both our families but I'm really grateful that everything turned out for the better in the end.
A lot of people don't have it like us and have to face a lot more difficulties. I hear of people getting kicked out of their homes, basically getting disowned, becoming trapped in abusive relationships and struggling to escape from domestic violence. I am so, so, so, unbelievably blessed to not have to face these issues right now even if things may be difficult in other aspects for us.
I am also so grateful for all of you and all of my friends and family who support us and love us as well. I really can't mention it enough and every time I do, I get emotional because I really think about everyone else who doesn't have the support systems that our family does and my heart really breaks for them and I am sooooo thankful and beyond blessed.
Even now, I am tearing thinking about it again.... I should stop getting so emotional but at the same time it's good to get emotional because it really makes you think and appreciate, you know?? It's always good to count your blessings and consider how you are better off than a huge number of others in the world.
SO. What I was saying was, yes, I love you and I thank you guys and much hugs and kisses MUAH
