Call For Guest Posts - What Is Your Pregnancy Story?
Share Your Pregnancy Story To Help Other Women Overcome Their Pregnancy Fears
As many of you know, this month I have been focusing on the first trimester of pregnancy. Check out the blog for holistic health information to get you through the first trimester.
I would like to help women who are considering pregnancy and first time moms overcome their fears of pregnancy. I feel the best way to learn what pregnancy is truly like is to talk to other women who have had this wonderful experience.
The media and hollywood paints a very bleak and negative picture of pregnancy; focusing on all the symptoms and not the joy. Which is sad, because pregnancy is an amazing life changing experience for any woman.
My pregnancy to this point has been way different than I expected. Yes there have been moments that aren't so fun, but it is also incredible to feel my little B kicking away inside me. To know that in just over 3 months there will be a mini me entering this world for the first time. To dream of how much more fulfilling my life is going to be.
I am looking for your pregnancy story (all three trimesters). What was pregnancy like for you? Were you sick? Were you afraid? Did you embrace pregnancy and enjoy it, or was it an experience you wouldn't want to repeat? Did you experience a pregnancy loss? Did you have weird cravings? Were you high risk or low risk?
Please write anything about your pregnancy that you would like to share that is from the heart. As women we need to come together to help each other overcome our fears and doubts.
All submissions are welcome. Even if you didn't enjoy your pregnancy experience your story is invaluable to other women who are thinking about having a child or those who are amidst the chaos of their first pregnancy.
