So many people who have not experienced pregnancy, or are simply just beginning the journey more than likely will not be able to fully conceive that having a baby can turn in to the ‘Baby Belly Blues.’ I haven’t been consistent or truth be told had an ounce of energy to document my recent pregnancy journey. Every time I have found out that I was pregnant, I have promised myself that I would journal and document my wonderful 9 month experience. Well this is my 3rd full term pregnancy, and I have failed again. Pregnancy can be so much more different from you may daydream it to be before you actually experience it. Currently in my 8th month counting down the days till I meet my sweet prince I am at one of the hardest stages of pregnancy. You feel stuck mentally at times. I am totally bounced around in my emotions towards the pregnancy feeling frustrated by the pain in my body and excited by the kick all at the same time. It’s a hard and long journey, but in life what is easy? Many woman really become surprised at how unhappy you really can be during pregnancy, not in the sense of being ungrateful but mainly feeling blue because of the process of pregnancy, and the hard toll it can take on your body and mind. I honestly feel terrible for elephants, they are pregnant for about 2 years! Wow I couldn’t imagine that, but I understand their struggle somewhat seeing as though, I managed to get pregnant every 2 years in the past 4 years lol. One of the biggest things that I’ve learned about my pregnancy experience is to effortlessly clear my surrounding of all unnecessary aggravation. You have to be sure to control all negativity that has the potential to impact you during such a precious time. I’ve found myself not to be as social as usual, but those that a closest to me totally understand the circumstance and do not take it personal. But they support me through this short season of helping my baby to grow and develop. So mammaz enjoy your pregnancy experience! In spite of it being rough and down right stressful at times embrace the short, but long season and ‘make that baby.’ All other things can be put aside until the little precious soul arrives. Below here are a few tipz to help you through what may be the ‘Baby Belly Blues.’
Lots of Mommy Love!
