One of the fabulous benefits of having 9 months of pregnancy is that it gives us time to adjust and prepare for what is without a doubt one of the biggest transitions in life. The first trimester is often a time of wonder or maybe shock, excitement but with a mix of nerves, worry and anticipation of what's to come.
Getting over that initial 12 week period for many is a huge relief, both from a safety perspective and physical comfort perspective. It often feels like your over a hump and able to get into your stride. Its a time to enjoy the life and the experience of carrying your baby.
Most of us make a conscious effort to take good care of ourselves from the time we get pregnant until the baby is born. We are aware of the importance of good nutrition, gentle exercise and the minimising of stress and negativity. It can often be more challenging than one would think as knowing whats best and doing whats best are sometimes not that easy to align in reality!
