But I can also relate to the discomforts of the pregnancy. It looks like you can look good but on the inside you are just miserable. There’s a lot of discomfort, lot of pressure. But I can also relate to the fact that you just have to keep going. It will get better but you just have to keep going. You are not going to be pregnant forever, and it is a wonderful thing once you do have that baby and you see that baby and I just kind of know that the prize will be worth it.
