During Inktober 2018, I drew a handful of journal comics while I was pregnant. They seemed to resonate with people, so I had every intention to keep it going during my pregnancy…but…I was pregnant and physically not feeling my best. As a compromise, I kept a notebook of comic ideas as they popped into my head as my baby grew from 10 weeks, to 17, to 24, onwards. I vowed that I would return to them and actually draw them. 2 years later, here we are. 😉
I have a handful already drawn and am slowly chipping away at the remainder of my list. It’s been fun revisiting that exciting, tumultuous, and incredible time in my life. There are so many things in life you truly don’t know about until you go through it: having kids is definitely one of them.
By the way, did you know every week your growing baby is compared to a piece of fruit to give you a size reference of what’s growing inside you? 40 weeks equals “a small watermelon”.
