Progesterone

Yesterday was one of my toughest pregnancy days. I woke up crying … for no reason. I had a great mid-morning but then was hit hard by fatigue in the late afternoon. I couldn’t shift it. I went to bed crying … for no reason. Like heaving sobs where I felt like I was two years old with no thoughts, just tears.

I had to keep reminding myself that there is nothing wrong with me, the progesterone is just flooding my system and this is all hormonal. I learned that with the pregnancy, I have to surrender and ride the emotional waves without trying to fix or “shift” them. “This too shall pass” was my mantra. And of course today it feels like nothing happened yesterday. What a journey.
