Being pregnant can be the most beautiful experience a woman could ever have in their lifetime. However, there are some emotions that we as women are not prepared for. Insecurity of your new body can become one of those emotions in your everyday life if you let it get the best of you, Don’t! One thing to remember is that you are growing a beautiful piece of life in your body that you prayed for. Do not worry about the weight that you are gaining in the process. At times it can become extremely difficult especially when your old clothes no longer fit your once so slim body. But again, this is the fun part! Embrace the change and remember that it won’t be forever. This will bring a sense of relief and sadness at the same time for some of you. As a pregnant mommy you get to wear practically anything and still look fabulous all because of that cute protruding baby bump. If there is anything I regret it is not embracing my body more. Honestly I miss my belly for that very reason. As the saying goes “You never know what you have until its gone.”
Embracing your alone time now before you become a party of three
You might not feel as attractive or you may feel more beautiful then you did prior to becoming pregnant. There were many times during my pregnancy that I felt so gross and fat. My husband would have to remind me daily “You’re pregnant!” But regardless of how many times he said it there I was tracking the pounds I gained on the scale, looking for new stretch marks and freaking out. Please don’t be like me. But if you are, try to think of something else other then the weight. Regardless to what your situation is embrace your beautiful belly. Don’t allow that to keep you from going on date night. Alone time is a vital part of your relationship. Do as much as you can with your honey because alone time kinda stops once your cutie moves in. So get your pretty pants on and have some fun! And P.S. everyone loves a pregnant woman in case you didn’t already notice.
Go on date nights. Here are some things that we did:
Make dinner together (Taco night. Super easy and fun)
Do something fun (We used to go to Top Golf. If you haven’t gone you need to try it out.)
Go on a trip (It doesn’t have to be anywhere crazy. You’ll be amazed what a weekend get away will do for your relationship.)
Go to a sporting event (We use to go to baseball and hockey games.)
Just to name a few. But you can do whatever makes you happy and brings the both of you together as a unit.
Enjoy one another while it’s just you two. This part of pregnancy is vital because it will commence growth in your relationship and bring you two closer then ever. At least it did for us.
I remember my husband and I doing small things like going on a walk around our neighborhood and just talking. It’s not about the quantity of things you do but rather, the quality of time that you spend together. Even if its just cuddling up on the couch together and eating ice cream. These are all cherished moments that you will have for the rest of your life. Try and enjoy this special time.
Find things that make you happy
I use to read to my baby every night before going to bed. At first it felt like I was talking to myself but once I did it a few times it became a natural ritual. We enjoyed reading to our daughter so much that eventually we would rotate reading to her. My husband especially enjoyed it when she would move, while he would read. Its such a beautiful time in your life. Make it your own special moment so you can share these memories forever! In the car I would sing and place one hand over my belly and feel her moving. It’s important to do things that make you happy during pregnancy because it will also make your baby happy.Don’t forget that it started with the two of you. So make this time special.
