Pregnancy is an incredible, awe-inspiring, astounding thing. Our bodies take microscopic cells and transform them into full-fledged humans. It's a wonder and a privilege to have the opportunity to share life with those humans; to show them how to be the best they can possibly be. If you believe that any of this means a woman should just shut up and be grateful that she gets to host such a miracle, however, please stop reading now. For everyone else puking and grumbling their way to motherhood, please enjoy these mantras for women who hate pregnancy.
I've said it before, and I'll say it again: not enjoying every minute of pregnancy doesn't make you a bad mom, or a bad person an unappreciative human. You can be grateful and excited about the ability to have a baby, and well-prepared to raise a baby and super devoted to and already in love with your upcoming baby, and still hate the day-to-day reality of being pregnant. Hopefully, the following mantras can help you keep your eye on the prize —or at least help you laugh a little until you give birth (hopefully not too soon and hopefully to a healthy baby).
