Don't Judge a Book (or a Pregnant Woman) by Her Cover

Sometimes all you see are pregnant women and babies. It seems like they are everywhere.

You may automatically feel envious, wondering how that woman got pregnant so easily. But just remember that old saying: Don’t judge a book by its cover. Just because she’s pregnant doesn’t mean it was easy for her.

She might have been trying to conceive for years or perhaps she went through multiple infertility treatments to get her miracle baby. Maybe she is a surrogate for another couple. Or, maybe she did get pregnant easily and she knows how absolutely lucky she was. Or maybe she was once in your same situation.

So next time you see yet another belly bump, try not to glare, because one day that pregnant woman is probably going to be you.
