Sometimes you just need your mom

I gave my poor mom a stressed, hormonal earful on my lunch break today and she just let me vent. Sometimes there are no answers, you just need to unload some emotional weight. She sent me this kind, uplifting email afterwards.

You can do anything; just not everything.You are in charge of this pregnancy. When you need help; don't hesitate to ask for it. Do what is best for you and your baby. Be thankful that you have a strong partner to support you who has the same values as you. Have faith, look for the positives, and find ways to laugh as often as you can. Refuse to let stress hurt you and your baby. I have seen you in action and I know I raised a strong woman of which I 'm very proud. But, even strong women sometimes find that hormones can still get to be too much, and you may need to vent again, when you do, I'm always here for you.  Love, Mom.

Thanks Mom, I needed that.
