Support Your Support
I must give credit where credit is due.
I have experienced some really bad back pain, I am always tired, my moods are cray cray, I don’t sleep the best anymore, always hungry, you name it.
Never once have I heard my husband complain or get frustrated with me. Instead, he has been the most supportive through this pregnancy. I mean seriously supportive. Just think of anything nice and I can guarantee he has done it lol.
Before I was pregnant, I would always dread being “that wife” to wake my husband up at 4 am to go get me chocolate ice cream. I always envisioned being the “Master of my Emotions” and the “Captain of my Pain”, thinking that this would make pregnancy an enjoyable experience for the both of us. Reality has shown me that we cannot choose our emotions, nor our pains, but we can choose to enjoy every moment. My husband’s support makes pregnancy so amazing. His back rubs make me appreciate pain and realize the reason it hurts is because my uterus is growing to accommodate this beautiful creature developing inside me (Yes those are the thoughts during my massages lol)
I also must shout out my sisters (you know who you are) that give me positivity on a consistent basis. (I say I’m fat, and they say no it is all belly…I guess I will never know if they are lying lol).
Now I know everyone can’t say this about their spouse so my response to that is I would tell you to try to remain patient with them. After all, they are seeing you in a completely different light. It is an adjustment and I always tell Christian if it was the other way around, I can’t guarantee I would be as good to him as he has been to me.
For those who may be going through a pregnancy without a spouse, depend on your family, friends, or people around you who want to help you, who want to give you those massages, goodies, and the l love you deserve!
Keep supporting, loving, and remembering the ones supporting you. Your village is everything.
