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?
