3 Ways To Stay Confident While Expecting

About Mrs. O.

This blog is for the average woman. The everyday woman. The budget friendly woman. The woman who can only spare 40 minutes to get herself ready in the morning. The working woman. The vivacious woman. The woman who wants to be healthy, confident, and beautiful. 

With still so much to accomplish, I have realized how much my story and daily routines have the possibility of sparking sharing amongst women, and the ability to help someone else.

3 Ways To Stay Confident While Expecting

Easier said than done right? Trust me, I get it. I'm just here to say that we must find a way to!

  1. Carve time out for your appearance, health, and fitness. - I have found with all of my pregnancies that excuses are sooooo easy to make. No time for this, no energy for that. Each time they all made sense to me as well. This third time around however - even through the 15-16 weeks of constant nausea - I have vowed to take pride in my appearance, plan snacks and meals (as best as I can), and walk for at least 15 minutes/day. Whatever you can do, do it. Every pregnancy is different and so is every woman. Just remember that confidence is so much easier to maintain when you feel good and reach goals, however small they may be. fruit and veggie lunch idea
  2. Lean on other pregnant women. - Not everyone has the amazing, quintessential pregnancy. If you reach out to other ladies who are expecting, you'll find out just how 'not alone' you are. From nausea, to mood swings, to weight gain worries, to feeling like a failed wife or mom, there are tons of women who feel the same way. Get together, join forums, etc to find out the best ways of coping. It is important to remember that your pregnancy is temporary, and that you will begin to feel like yourself again just days after birth in most cases.
  3. Remember that it's a BLESSING to be expecting. If nothing else, find confidence in THAT! - I was politely humbled and reminded today of the many women who pay thousands of dollars per year to aid in fertility issues and conceiving. Having experienced loss before, I also know what it feels like to have your dreams shattered in that respect. Each day, try to be grateful for the experience itself if nothing else.

Of all of these tips one thing is for sure, confidence is certainly a conscious decision that expectant women must make. With or without the validation of others, decide to be confident, feel beautiful, and bask in the blessing that truthfully many women don't get to experience. I know that I will be from this day forward.

Humbly Yours,

Mrs. O.
