Take Stock of Your Feelings


It's really happening! You're having a baby! It makes perfect sense to have mixed feelings about this major milestone. Allow yourself to feel the full range of emotions. Consider starting a pregnancy journal and taking pictures of your gradually growing bump to help you adjust to pregnancy and manage your anxiety or excitement. Keep in mind that your partner may take even more time to warm-up to the life-changing news that you're expecting a baby, so try to understand if you're not feeling the same way at the same time early on in your pregnancy. You'll both gradually find ways to connect with your baby. If you're single and going solo in your pregnancy, build a network of friends and family to rely on and celebrate with throughout your pregnancy. There's so much to look forward to!
