When I became pregnant I wrapped myself in cotton wool! I had, had a miscarriage 6 months before this pregnancy, and I was so scared of it happening again! As a result I literally stopped myself from doing certain things with the fear of losing my baby. Looking back I was definitely a bit over cautious, but it all felt right at the time! I thought I would share with you my regrets, and be honest about them.
NOT GOING ON A BABY MOON
I am an extremely nervous flyer so I didn’t want to raise my stress levels, and for it to affect my unborn baby. I was also frightened the something would happen to the plane (completely irrational I know). Looking back it would have been so amazing to have spent some quality time with my just my husband, in the warm sunshine. It actually would have done wonders for me to have had time to completely relax.
When I look back at myself pregnant I was SO bloated. I think this has a lot to do with the fact I didn’t exercise. In fact I didn’t push myself at all. I think I would have felt a lot better had I moved a bit more!
DIDN'T EAT CERTAIN FOODS
I watched everything I ate! I checked every ingredient and cut out lots of foods. I wish I hadn't worried so much as I had a good diet anyway.
Looking back I didn't need to be as worried as I was. I actually wasn't controlling if I would have another miscarriage, or not, by not doing the things above. They only created more stress and anxiety. If there is one thing I have learnt in this life, what will be will be. I am so grateful to have a happy and healthy little lady. Kxx
