These Pregnant Women Show The Everyday Struggle Is Very Much Real

So, you think pregnancy is filled with rainbows and butterflies? No one can really describe how it feels to be pregnant unless they’ve been through it. Truth be told, pregnant women struggles are real and take it from these women who actually had firsthand experience of it. Pregnancy unfolds the beginning of a new stage in a woman’s life. Indeed, growing a human being inside you significantly changes your perspective on life.

Change is expected during pregnancy but these changes are not always beautiful. We’ve seen pregnant women depicted on TV and advertisements flaunting that ‘pregnancy glow’. But does pregnancy really make women attain a special beauty? Or is this just a socially constructed concept to make pregnancy appear more appealing to women? If you really wanted to know how it really feels to be pregnant, why not ask those who have actually experienced it?

 

Pregnant Women Struggles

As everyone is unique in their own way, every woman has a different experience of pregnancy. Some of them are lucky to experience 40 weeks of total bliss and love. But for many women, the physical and emotional transformations that comes with it are too much to handle. Mood swings, weight gain, stress, sleep deprivation, nausea, back pain: these are only few of the torturous struggles that they have to endure. Now imagine having to suffer all of these things for 40 weeks. Just to undergo a 3-hour labor when it’s time to deliver the baby.

Like A Whole Chicken

Of course, the idea of childbirth and being able to hold your precious little baby in your arms brings ultimate joy. But let’s not also brush aside the struggles of pregnancy. It’s wiser to anticipate painful body changes and emotional roller coasters throughout pregnancy than to settle on a mindset that everything about bearing a child is all happiness and pleasure. It is much better to prepare for the worse than to get disappointed when the experience doesn’t meet your expectations.

We’ve compiled a list of pregnant women struggles to give you a clearer and more realistic picture of what pregnancy is really like.
