As the old adage says: When life throws you lemons, make lemonade. But what if life throws you lemons then made a huge cut when you're making your lemonade? Can you still be positive on your situation?
My life's biggest regret is when I did not took care of myself when I was pregnant with my first child. I was depressed and I regret now that I let it consume me. The result? My first child is sickly. I believe it is the mother's success or failure what her child will become when they step out on this world that's why I really regret my actions back then.
If you're a reader of my blogs, you know that I was kicked out from home and run away with my now Hubby-partner a day after graduating college because it became very chaotic for me to stay with my family. Back then, I develop depression. I was eating less than the usual consumption of a pregnant woman and I don't like eating. I did not sleep early, did not take my vitamins regularly and I was always on the brink of negativity. I have no one to talk to about what I'm feeling and I have this anxiety. I was also in denial because it was an unplanned pregnancy. Now, the results is seen with my first child too sickly and malnourished.
I am heartfully sorry to him because I didn't took care of him when he is still in my womb. Right now I am doing my best to make him a healthy baby by giving him fruits, vegetables and taking care of him always when I am home from work.
To all expecting mothers out there, whether your pregnancy is planned or unplanned, always take care of yourself because the end result of your 9 month maternity will be your responsibility. Eat many fruits and vegetables, have a balanced diet, don't drink softdrinks and other beverages that can harm your baby, sleep early as 9PM, exercise by walking in the morning and research or ask your OB-Gyne what else you should do to make your baby healthy. I promise you that if you keep your baby healthy in your womb, you won't have any regrets in the future.
