All sorts feelings subside in a pregnant woman. They can range from absolutely hating pregnancy, to not really knowing how they feel about it, or women who cherish the season of “ripeness”. We are all made different. There are areas of my life that I truly dislike that maybe another woman relishes.
As I get older I realize that we need to give ourselves a break and remove the guilt from our lives. We all have things we enjoy and things we don’t enjoy. If you do not like pregnancy, do not feel guilty. You are not alone there are many women out there who feel the same way. Pregnancy can be hard and our bodies all react differently. Our pregnant bodies become alien to us. I remember looking in the mirror and thinking “wow, this is not my body?” If a pregnant woman says that she does not like pregnancy, it has nothing to do with loving her baby that she is carrying. The statement just means that she is uncomfortable and would prefer to skip the uncomfortable part of pregnancy. This is similar to saying; “I love a clean house, but do not enjoy the housework.”
Give yourself and other mothers a break. Embrace that we are all made differently and please stop living in guilt. You are created uniquely beautiful and have strengths that others do not have.
