It is very normal to feel more emotional during pregnancy. This may well include irritability, anger, moodiness, anxiety, tearfulness and a feeling of needing one’s personal space back. Fluctuations in hormone levels contribute to emotional swings but there are other factors to consider too. One’s body, mind and emotions have never been anywhere like this before and every facet of life is affected. This can lead to bucket loads of tears, anxiety and even depression in pregnancy. Women quite often feel very alone when pregnant. Even those close to them don’t always offer the support she really needs. Extra tender loving care and nurturing from those close to one will help. Pregnancy is a more ‘feminine’ and sensitive phase in life and one is supposed to be more emotional! It’s not all bad! However, Mother Nature in the form of Rescue Emotion provides safe and effective support and self-help. The Sister Lilian Tissue Salt Nat Mur can also assist from a mineral perspective. Often this is all that is needed to put a smile on one’s face again and help one enjoy the magical experience of pregnancy.
I have painful twinges that seem to affect different parts of my torso at different times – backache, just right of my navel and in my groin. My doctor says this is normal and I will just have to grin and bear it, but is there really no help at hand?
