...like myself.. if only for a day :)

Okay Mamas.. if you were or are preggo.. I bet you can relate.. I am over 7 months along and lately, just don't feel like myself anymore. It doesn't have anything to do with appearance really.. I have totally embraced "the bump".. but it has everything to do with physically how I feel.. day to day.. and my emotions.. eek! Anyways.. the past few weeks (probably 2), I haven't completely felt like ME.. almost like I want to scream and be like HELLO MEG.. where did you go! I know it's only temporary.. but it gets to me. Anyways.. cut to today.. I am beyond blessed that I feel like God answered a small lil prayer for me.. I felt like me! I didn't really feel sick or uneasy once.. I didn't get stuffed and uncomfy eating.. I didn't have my whack emotions come out.. I completely enjoyed the whole day and felt like lil ole Meg again.. if only for a day.. I will take it!

Did you Mamas ever just want to bust out of your skin and feel like yourself again while preggo? ​

    I remember feeling emotional, hormonal and tired. Not sure if I ever thought I wasn't me but it makes sense why you'd feel like that. Glad you had a good day today.

      Actually, that feeling has never left me since having my children. In fact, I don't look at it like I don't feel "myself" anymore or that I've lost "myself". I still have my ups and downs, my worries and my glory, my good days and my bad. I have them MORE now than I ever did before my children and thus, I have come to terms that after having my children, I just simply "found myself" and that's who I am. Once you learn to cope with these emotions and embrace your new self as much as you embrace your bump, it will bring you to a new all time nirvana and you'll wonder how you ever survived before motherhood. Welcome to your new self ... you're beautiful inside and out!

      Aww I appreciate that, Kat! I can relate.. I am sure I will more :) I should have clarified that I feel rather sick or uncomfy a ton lately.. haha Thus.. body and energy wise.. I am just not used to being out of control of it all.. probably feeding into not feeling quite like myself :) Today.. I had no little bouts of feeling uneasy, anxious or what we think are Braxton Hicks.. eek!

        I''m so happy though that you are 7 months. I hate that you're experiencing distress. I hope you feel better soon!

          Ok so this is probly going to make me sound really bad but I DID NOT like being pregnant at all. I was crazy emotional and sick and uncomfortable. For the last 2/3 months I was so miserable. I didn't like not being in control of my body and my emotions. My husband will set and tell stories about me crying for no reason then get mad cause I was crying for no reason and throw something. I think a lot of it had to do with being so physically uncomfortable. I was only about 125 lbs when I got pregnant and I only gained about 30 lbs but it was all baby and I had a huge stomach. So I couldn't lay, walk, set, anything. But all of that went away for me when my daughters were born and so defintley worth it. But there was nothing that mad it better until they were born. So I hope you aren't that miserable and I'm so glad you had a good day you deserve it. Especially with serving those 14 in laws ;)

          I am somewhat with you Tessa :) I was barely over 100 lbs. when I got pregnant and haven't even gained more than 12-13.. all baby.. all belly.. but all not me! ha I just get uncomfy easily and don't feel like myself all the time.. especially having to think about what I eat, when I eat.. etc.. eek. I know it's for an awesome cause.. and if it's the worst that I get.. I will take it ;)

            i loved being pregnant up until around 7 1/2 , 8 months along because i started to become not myself personality wise i was more moody and irritable and completely uncomfortable but i am also short and my 1st child laid and pushed on my spine all the time putting me into false labor about every 2 wks starting at 8 months :( but in the end you forget it all ... and it feels worth everything to have gone through just to finally meet that little angel ... good luck mamma ..
