Pregnancy can be one of life's most exciting phases as you prepare to welcome a new family member, but it can also be one of the most stressful, especially as the details of your maternity coverage start to bog you down.
It took me almost 365 days to just feel "normal," or, better yet, stable mentally and physically. Almost another year later and I'm finally feeling strong, lithe and sexy again -- in a whole new way, much different than before my pregnancy.
Stress and anxiety are bad -- for both you and your growing baby. Your kid is super lucky to have a conscientious momma, but don't turn a good thing into a negative one by bugging out about how toxic your shampoo is (easier said than done, I know).
