Baby Bump: It's OK To Be Sick of Being Pregnant

Baby Bump: It's OK To Be Sick of Being Pregnant

Pregnancy can be one of the most exciting times in a woman's life, but don't be discouraged (or surprised) if your perpetual glow fizzles into nothing more than a flushed face that's short of breath after the first couple of months.

In the beginning, pregnancy is new and fun, but the novelty can wear off for some moms-to-be — and it's completely normal. Don't feel down on yourself if you're sick of being poked and prodded at by the doctor, and by anyone else who feels the need to touch your growing bump. From nausea, to heartburn, to hemorrhoids, to comments such as, "You're huge!" — cooking a bun in the oven is not always easy emotionally or physically, especially as you get down to the last stretch. Just do your best to keep your eye on the prize: your bundle of joy!

If you do start to feel a lil more than just down, you may want to talk to your ob-gyn, as depression does not only happen postpartum. In fact, 10-20 percent of women will experience it at any point during the nine months.
