I had a wake up call today.
There I was at work carrying all my stress on my shoulders and I started feeling pain in my lower abdomen - I knew it was the stress. Then I started feeling as like a bad mother because my stress was now physically affecting myself and the baby. Of course I started crying...by myself in the bathroom...over dramatic. I tried some breathing exercises to calm down and it seemed to help, but I was trapped in the stall for a good 10-15 minutes in fear that one of my co-workers would see me.
I need to learn how to better manage my stress, especially while I'm carrying this child.
Lord help me.
