Attitude Adjustment

So, as you know, I'm pregnant. I've been whining a lot and griping about it because it was a surprise to find myself pregnant and sick again. With my son, I happily anticipated him and, though I know I complained a bit, it was nothing like how I've been feeling and verbally expressing to my family with this baby! I am excited for the BABY, the END of the pregnancy, but have been very negative about being pregnant.

I finally realized how unhappy I was today while I was on the phone with DisGrace when I said, "I HATE being pregnant." she started laughing and said, "you need to figure out how to enjoy it, or you are going to be miserable for the next 6 or 7 months." Which is true, she should know, she was pretty miserable with her last baby! :P

Over the weekend, I had emailed with a ward friend and told her about the baby, but just that. I didn't let on to how I've been feeling (except the morning sickness). I just woke up from a nap to a beautiful message from her about how challenging pregnancy can be, but how full of miracles that first trimester is and how much gratitude she has for being able to experience it.

Man, I needed that. I AM thankful we didn't have to try for a long time and that I didn't have to take Clomid this time. And now I can be thankful for other things, thanks to the attitude adjustment I just got. Heavenly Father sure knew what I needed to hear today!

I think changing your attitude is one of the hardest things! Way to go for it!
