Pregnancy will certainly be an interesting 9 months of your life – you may have many reasons for happiness and usually some extra things to worry about too.
There will be times like feeling your baby move for the first time – an amazing and emotional experience. Babies are born every day but this one is yours!
But pregnancy hormones may make you more emotional than usual and you may worry about whether your baby will be normal and how you will cope with labour. Many women have feelings like this when they are pregnant. It will help if you can talk openly about any concerns with your partner or a close friend or health care givers.
In reality, you are quite likely to have times when you feel low during your pregnancy, just like any other 9 months of your life. As well as the normal ups and downs of life, your pregnancy will usually give you some extra reasons for many emotions – from joy to misery.
The pregnancy hormones in your body probably contribute a lot to these feelings. Some of your emotions may also be caused by the realisation that you are going to become a mother. It can be an overwhelming thought at times.
