20.4 stressed out

imagine via the sartorialist
I would love to be one of those blissful pregnant women...I really would...but I'm not. I'm known for being an upbeat person and while I am 90% of the time, durirng my pregnancy, the other 10% is really bad. It's hard for me to eliminate all my stress just because I'm pregnant - and although I'm so excited about my child - being pregnant makes me stress even more because I'm so worried about the baby.

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.

Hi, this happens so often in pregnancy. Please don't be too hard on yourself. Your hormones are everywhere..your'e concerned about being a mother and how life will change..all of these things are normal. Hang in there!
