I’m with you girl, I haven’t been sober this long since I was 15yrs old and up until now I was doing really good but now that we’re in the dead of winter and there’s not much going on, I find on the weekends I get a bit bored and I get super emotional because normally I’d have a few drinks or smoke a j and I’d have so much fun. Last weekend I wanted to go out and go to the casino and at first I was like “I can do this sober no problem!” But when we went to leave I just started crying and said to my husband “I don’t even want to go anymore it’s not fun if I can’t get tipsy.” I’ve been really trying to find new hobbies, I spend a lot of time planning for baby and online shopping but trust me, it hasn’t been easy! Gotta take it a day at a time and think that it’s only temporary, and 100% worth it for a healthy baby ❤️
You're not alone, I m 21 weeks pregnant I just quit smoking 3 days ago. You're mental health is important to.
I am right there with you love, especially because I associate having a drink with relaxation. Nothing beats a nice glass of wine in the bath or beer and pizza on a friday night. Wanting to do something you like, take care of yourself or even do something fun is completely normal, understandable and It's nothing to feel guilty about or feel ashamed about. I keep telling myself that it's just a short period of time and that come summer, I'll be able to have that beer in the sunshine. :) You're not alone and all these hormones and body changes are NOT easy.
It’s a struggle and you’re not alone! I’ve been dealing with feeling the same way. And you’re by no means a failure as a mom. I feel completely wiped working full time all I can do is work and then sleep! I would absolutely loveeeee a glass of wine (or 3) lol. Talking with my psychologist helps a bit but it still isn’t easy. It’s a temporary time in our lives though and that’s what’s helping me get through!
I found it hard at the beginning of my pregnancy. I’m around alcohol all the time because I’m a bartender, but it does get easier. I found some nonalcoholic ciders and wine that make me feel a little more included in social situations. I’m looking forward to some Fruity cocktails in the summer… I told my boyfriend I want to have a summer drink day- where he takes care of baby and I get to let loose. He’s on board.
