For so many people, being pregnant is the best thing in the entire world. The hormones making you happy and energized, you are radiant, peaceful and feeling serene all the time. You glow and everything is wonderful!
Except when it’s not..
We feel sick, we’re tired, we feel like whales, and worried all the time on how the baby would turn out. But really, it’s normal. It’s normal not to love being pregnant. For sure it is a special time for the whole family, but at the same time, it is a very intense period of physical, mental and emotional change. Some negative emotions are very normal and it is important to acknowledge that, or pregnant moms can feel isolated and guilty.
Of course, if you are feeling ill, uncomfortable or sad, you should talk to your healthcare provider to rule out any serious issues!
