Perspective – The Shrinking Jeans of Heather


January 19, 2011 by heather

As much as I bitch and moan about pregnancy, I am also aware of the fact that I am very lucky in that I have healthy and (knock wood) uneventful pregnancies.

I was especially affected by a tweet I saw recently. I don’t have it word for word, but the basic jist of it was, as uncomfortable as later pregnancy can be, it is much easier to care for a baby in utero than one born premature.

That? Was pretty much a shut up sandwich. I needed to read that, ruminate on it. Realize that carrying a child is NOT about me. So no matter how badly I want to exercise normally or look a certain way, the big picture is that I’m doing a job right now.

Does this mean I’ll never complain again? No.

But I’m working on perspective.
