oh is dat kehlani wit another essay caption… who woulda thought! 😂 i’ve been getting lots of preggie folx saying i been making it look easy, and how they wish their pregnancy was/is going the same as mine seems to be… i will say this: the internet makes everything look lovely and wonderful. 2 days away from the 3rd trimester and this has been the hardest thing ever. from not knowing anything about prenatal depression nor understanding it while it’s been hitting me like a bag of bricks, to being very isolated and alone internally and externally these days, to just the normal terrible sleep/no appetite/anxiety. the struggle to recognize your body in the mirror, the struggle to not feel like no matter what, no one understands.
it terrifies me a lot to be this vulnerable online but i get support (which is EVERYTHING to me) & am told the support by me in this form is helpful. any people experiencing prenatal depression… what’s been helping me is: talking about it. sharing. reminding myself isolation doesn’t have to be the answer. waking up early and getting OUT of bed to get sun. music music music playing all the time. bird sounds/nature on a noise machine or just a phone and speaker. reading. breathing.
meditating even for small amounts of time. snacking as much as i can on fresh things. staying hydrated. disney movies help me too 😂 mommy/parent pages on instagram where people share their stories and journeys help a lot. ily ily ily ily, 3rd trimester on Christmas i’m ready for this final round 🐃
