Relaunching our Pomegranate & Pumpkin Seed Stretch Mark System this week and rewatching the video (and my bulging stomach!) obtained me reminiscing about my two pregnancies – and pondering slightly about what I might need completed in a different way.

‘Falling pregnant’ is a momentous time in a girl’s life, however I’ve all the time thought it a daft determine of speech; implying a form of ‘blink and also you’re pregnant’ immaculate affair.

For a lot of (in reality, most) it’s a for much longer street; a marathon, attending to ‘B Day’ and holding your child in your arms for the primary time.

Struggles with conception and miscarriage are sadly far too frequent, and a supply of heartache that nobody can totally comprehend till they’re in it.

So, it’s no surprise that when many people do lastly get pregnant, it could actually include a monumental pile of worries that permeates these 10 nail-biting months. Sure, 10, not 9; don’t be fooled! 

Each twinge fills you with worry and also you spend each spare minute consulting Dr Google and navel-gazing, questioning what on earth is occurring in there.

If I might impart one piece of recommendation, I’d say ‘calm down’. What might be, might be.  What’s occurring is nothing in need of slightly miracle; so view it by this magical prism.

Stress much less, sleep extra. Lie-in with the Sunday papers, go to the cinema, play the music you like most and sing to your unborn youngster.

Give attention to solely the issues that matter and be type to your physique…as a result of it’s working actually onerous!

Most of all, benefit from the trip as a result of being pregnant is nothing in need of extraordinary.
