🎀As things get more uncomfortable and are often now quite painful, with maybe only 5 weeks left of carrying this little treasure lady around with me in my tummy I’ve been thinking a lot... pregnancy is such a crazy crazy thing. So many people have so many opinions. I’ve switched between being quite hard on myself thinking I just need to suck it up and put on a brave face and trying to share things honestly.
It was thrown at me by an older woman in the row behind me on a flight when I was 5.5 months pregnant that “pregnancy is not a disease!” after her drunk aggressive husband continuously kicked and pushed and punched the back of my chair and Dan asked him to stop because I was pregnant and that was hurting me..... I’ve also been told very recently by another woman, who was a friend, who has never been 8 months pregnant that “being pregnant is not an excuse” for not being able to meet her expectations of me when I’m not feeling up for certain things.
These types of things are said to women all the time and I know from many a conversation with people that these types of comments and beliefs are what makes people feel like they can’t express when they are struggling. I am so incredibly lucky to have the most beautiful family and friends as well as the love of my life by my side, being beyond supportive in every way, the love and excitement as well as the emotional and physical support I have in him is something that I am so in awe of and so very thankful for. @dansultanmusic You are the most amazing man 🖤🍋 Pregnancy can be hard, really hard. Everyone’s pregnancy is different. There is no shame in saying something when you are having a tough time. It doesn’t make you any less strong or any less in love with your baby. It doesn’t mean you’re not incredibly grateful that you get to experience this blessing. Stop being unkind to one another, be loving, be supportive, talk. I’m always here if anyone wants to talk about this stuff. #pregnant #pregnancy #baby #babygirl #love #family #women #womenempowerment #womensupportwomen #kindness
