So, You're Having A Baby

You are starting to show. That glow you have is so beautiful. Everything is going to plan. You feel like you are on top of the world. If you could scream from the tallest building letting everyone know you are pregnant you would.

Then one day you wake up and you are feeling depressed. It's okay your hormones are going crazy. You feel fat, ugly,  ashamed,  and start doubting yourself. STOP!

Everyone goes through this at one point in there pregnancy. If being pregnant was perfect the whole nine months I guarantee most woman would have 10 kids or more. It is like a roller coaster ride.

Your significant other will try to make you feel better. Only to find that they are really not helping. Seems like they are making it much worse.  Give them a break as they are trying really hard to help. So what do you do?

Take a breath and relax. This to shall pass. You will be a good mother and you will just need to remind yourself of that. Your body is going through so many changes but, do not worry. The extra weight gain is best for your baby. You can lose it after you deliver.

Ladies, don't be so hard on yourself. this is supposed to be a happy time. Find things that make you happy. It may be shopping for baby clothes. Going for a walk on a nice sunny day. Even something as simple as a big piece of chocolate cake. Whatever it may be remember you are bringing life into this world.  BE PROUD OF YOURSELF!
