Pregnancy is a time of ups and downs (mostly ups on the scale), triumphs and disappointments, and struggles and joys.

Love it or hate it, pregnancy is one of the most transformative experiences in a woman's life, but that doesn't mean it is easy. I've often heard childbirth compared to running a marathon or climbing Mt. Everest, but can we be honest for a minute? Not every mom wants to push herself to the limit of her physical endurance.

Which is why some of us need a little help to get through those nine months and to the finish line. And on days when I'm feeling like I just can't go on, it helps to be reminded to see the beauty, love, and laughter that pregnancy can bring. These quotes help put pregnancy in a new perspective.
