After a day of particularly agonising pelvic floor pains (my own fault for pushing my pregnant body to walk further than was comfortable) I woke this morning feeling very sorry for myself.
‘I feel so limited!’ I heard myself say as I winced with each step. And back to my horizontal position I returned.
I love the way pregnancy forces us to stop and slow down. Natures way of conserving our energy for the big day? I believe so.
As I surrendered to rest, my body thanked me and I took the opportunity to strengthen my mindset instead.
Limiting thoughts of “If I can’t cope with pregnancy discomfort, how on Earth will I cope with labour discomfort?” were promptly pushed aside.
It’s ok to feel vulnerable and yes, it’s even ok to have a little moan. Just as long as we acknowledge that we are only limited by our beliefs.
A few hours later and my pelvic floor has eased. I am feeling more energised and yes, even excited for our impending birth!
Because truly, anything is possible with a little faith and belief.
