Yes, that phrase is a bit cliche, but what should you expect? Let me ask this…what do you want it to look like? I have a friend who was cruising along just fine with her first pregnancy. Every time we talked, she was doing great, said she hardly felt pregnant.
Then she had a chat with a well-meaning sister-in-law who told her how awful pregnancy was and how awful she would feel. As we talked a few days after that conversation, she was like a different person, the yuck of pregnancy had hit her full force she explained. She couldn’t wait for the whole ordeal to be over.
Trying to help her not loathe the rest of the pregnancy, I explained that 2nd trimester is usually when you feel the best. She was 14 weeks pregnant at the time, and you could see a glimpse of relief come over her, and she said she thought she was maybe beginning to feel a little better.
First time moms don’t know what they’re supposed to be feeling and experiencing with this new adventure. Now I’m very aware that not everyone experiences a blissful pregnancy and sneezes the baby out! But I am trying to say that our thoughts are so very powerful, and it’s good to be aware of them.
In my next post, I’ll be explaining a powerful tool that will help you recognize your thoughts and how they are creating the result you are getting. It’s a good one!
