Struggling to Find Time to be Happy…


Have you ever felt that you should be happy about something happening in your life, but you could not find the time to be happy about it?

After some time trying to get pregnant –  in the meantime almost everything have happened except that – we are finally becoming parents February 23rd next year!  I am still a bit numb, but I am surely happy! I know I am. I just have not found time yet to stop and enjoy the new life growing inside me. And, every time I think about it, I realise it is sad.

I can imagine that many future moms are going through the same right now: having to work during pregnancy. It is what normal people do. What we have to do to provide for our family, to be independent. But, these first three to four months have been truly a challenge! Not for the pregnancy itself, but for the fact that I feel very tired – okay, this is a pregnancy symptom – and stressed out about work. I can not seem to find the time to sit, touch my growing belly and thank God and the Universe for this blessing. I keep just foreseeing the possible problems in the future.

I am writing this to try to unburden myself from this awkward situation. Not finding time to be happy…

I hope that when I find out the gender – I wanted to keep it a secret, but my husband wants to know – I finally start building my relationship with this baby… and start shopping accordingly! I really wish to feel light and happy  and enjoy this time of my life!

What about you, are you a working mom? Do you find the same problems? Any advices?

    The only advice I would say is try and take as much time off you can. Being pregnant is a magical moment and every pregnancy is different (so I’m told). Your bump grows differently in each pregnancy so take a lot of pictures of the different months! If you can’t get the time off, try and speak to your bump privately when your driving home, on your break, outside just have some alone time with your baby. If you’re feeling tired and maybe getting other symptoms like morning sickness and if you’re anything like me – I worked at a food shop and puked at the smell & sight of food – you will need time off to build your energy. I know money may be a worry but it’s very important baby and yourself are healthy, and just bare in mind baby is taking everything from you to become stronger. In a few weeks or months time I hope you do find the time to be happy and excited about becoming a mother because it’s an amazing gift and you deserve to feel happy. Congratulations x

    • Thank so much for the words of advice. Actually, I feel better after having wrote this article. It is important to share and talk about what we feel in order to feel better with ourselves and also to get some wise words like yours! 🙂 I am 16 weeks (almost 17) pregnant, so I hope I still have the time to enjoy this time, and especially this baby. I want to start now! Thank you and I wish you all the best! 🙂
