You may have had to go through all the vomiting, nausea, loss of appetite… and all other drama associated with the first trimester of pregnancy. You probably feel like you’ve become a bawling mess.
Now you’re asking…
Is pregnancy a good thing?
Well yeah… I know it can be a tough time. The fatigues, body pains, weight gain, loss of appetites and in some cases, over appetite or cravings, the change in physique – you probably get to lose your slender body figure and trim tummy.
Regardless of the trouble attached to pregnancy, having a baby is a most pleasant experience.
Over time you’ll realize that all the pain has gone away and what you’re left with are the beautiful memories and experiences that come with having ‘the baby’.
The baby shower, the baby naming, having to hold the baby in your arms; that feeling of bringing life to the earth, shopping for the baby… There are enough fun memories to last you a lifetime.
