I don’t feel like explaining everything again because I have a lot already (I should probably just write a note in my phone w my pregnancy story) But this entire pregnancy has been very traumatic and makes me very scared for birth and parenting

My first three months were just unbearable I had pain in my left leg that came every 15 minutes. I was told to just take Tylenol but opted to not as long as baby was fine. Heartburn was my worst and generally feeling tired and worn out. I did not throw up but had zero appetite for food.

Definitely having a stressful pregnancy. 31 weeks currently. Suffered from pretty bad depression since I was young - but got alot worse through pregnancy. Plus the nausea and very dark thoughts through my first trimester. I only have my partner for support. We also have had to put down my 4 year old puppy who was becoming unpredictable, reactive, and has bitten both my partner and I. This broke me… as I felt like I was choosing one life over another. And to top it all off we have moved twice, soon to be three times during this pregnancy. And my partner is trying to start his own company with my support in admin. It has been extremely stressful, heartbreaking, and I’ve been exhausted mentally and physically. I am full of anxiety and can’t seem to plan for the future anymore. Nothing is fun. And I almost feel like an empty shell that only matters because I have a baby in me.

I couldn’t mentally handle being pregnant so much so I booked my appointment for an induction the moment they said I could get it… I don’t regret doing it…
