When Getting Pregnant Feels Like a Reality Show

Have you ever watched the reality show The Biggest Loser? Men and women compete to lose the most amount of weight through grueling exercises and eating healthy.

Getting pregnant is no different and may often feel like a competition. Sometimes it feels like everyone on your team is getting pregnant including your sister, your friends and even the Facebook acquaintance you haven’t seen since high school. You experience grueling procedures, alter your diet and try to maintain your optimal weight. So why aren’t you pregnant yet?

While you may feel like the biggest loser that got left behind, nothing could be farther from the truth. Getting pregnant is not a race or a competition. And just because you haven’t reached the finish line just yet, you may cross it next week or next month, and you will still feel ecstatic about your accomplishment. On your mark, get set, GO!
