….baby no 2 is on his way and after the initial elation of knowing I will soon have a second child to nurture and love, pregnancy depression made itself visible once more!
I feel bad really that I do not enjoy the pregnancy process like so many other women or like so many women wish to go through. But pregnancy looses my balance somewhat……
Anger and frustration are quite manifest as control over my body disappears into nothing. Self confidence is dropping near zero as my body is starting to slowly round up (even if not quite visible yet). The many other little health issues like heartburn, occassional nausea and lots of headaches are taking a toll on me.Thankfully so far the million of spots that erupted on my face in the last pregnancy haven’t manifested and hopefully it will remain so.
And no matter how I try to rationalise it, breathe, relax, feel thankful for my receptive body……I am in a meltdown. So, although I will keep you updated and hopefully with more cheerful days, you will surely not find any belly photos and won’t hear of the proud bump…..maybe I can somehow sleep till its time to give birth- sigh-
Can you suggest anything so that I release my anger and frustration and boost my self confidence once more?
