Positive Pregnancy Affirmations

Hormones rage.  Your body is constantly changing.  So many thoughts run your head.  After all, you have nine months to dream, worry, wish, think, analyze, desire, and maybe even fear about  how your life will change and what this new person will be like.  Will my birth go the way I plan?  Can my body handle all these changes, all this growth?

While there are so many things in life and during your pregnancy you can't control {stretch marks, anyone?}, you can make a choice to control what you put into your thoughts. 

You can entertain the negative - the worries, the anxieties, the fears. 

Or, you can make a choice to encourage and empower your mind with Positive Pregnancy Affirmations. 

{Skeptical? Humor me, and humor yourself.  Take one minute of your life and TRY IT!}

Read through these affirmations and choose one that resonates with you.

Take a deep, slow breath, filling your chest, into your abdomen.  Slowly exhale through your mouth.

Repeat your affirmation slowly to yourself or aloud as you continue to take deep, slow breaths.   Do this five times.

The repetition will help ingrain it into your memory so you can draw upon it in times of need. 

The affirmation that resonates most with you may change throughout your pregnancy.
