Pregnancy is a beautiful time in a woman’s life. She becomes a vessel for another human being, helping to grow and nurture a tiny baby until he or she is ready to make their grand debut. It is truly incredible – nothing short of a miracle.
But let’s get real for a minute – it’s not all roses. I feel more confident saying this now, as this is my third time through the experience, and I wish that someone had told me about the good AND the not-so-good aspects of pregnancy before my first. At the risk of sounding like I’m complaining (and maybe I am), I just can’t hold my tongue any longer on the surprises of pregnancy that complement the wonders.
I am excited to have my first post featured on Busy Mommy Media today, a great parenting resource that sets out to make moms’ lives easier through child-rearing tips, meal ideas, hacks, and more. Head over to read about the downsides of pregnancy that nobody talks about!
