Being pregnant can be a challenge for me, both physically and mentally. From gaining weight to going to doctors appointments, where there is so much uncertainty associated with each visit and test- it all brings me anxiety.
Guilt and perfectionism are other things that challenge me in my daily life. While being pregnant, and a mom, these challenges are often amplified.
As a mom you want to give your child the absolute best opportunity you can in this world. With that said- moms you are not alone! Being both a mom and mom-to-be can be scary!
Please allow yourself to feel that you are amazing and doing an outstanding job!
I have to remind myself of that often and Jake does a great job reminding me of this as well! Ultimately we really have no control of what happens and all we can do is exactly what we are doing.
Be present in our children's lives, educate them, be kind, show them that we care, and most importantly love them unconditionally!
I can honestly tell you my faith becomes even stronger as I rely more on God to trust that all will work out-according to his plan.
