I’d be lying if I said I missed being pregnant. People used to tell me I’d miss it. I was pretty sure they were wrong… and it turns out I was right about them being wrong. (I thought I might miss feeling the baby moving, but if we’re totally honest, I like hugging him outside of me now even more, so I don’t even miss that.) I did not like being pregnant. It was really, really hard.
Dealing with anxiety in pregnancy isn’t something I had ever given much thought to before – and I had shared (more or less) all the basics of the things I know about living well with anxiety. But of course, there’s always more to learn. In fact, every new experience offers me a choice – A) choose to learn how to deal or B) spiral into full blown prolonged panic mode.
