Learning ways of coping with a breakup while pregnant will help you to gain control of your emotional and physical health during this time – when you also have to care for the life of your child. So here are 3 advice that will bring peace to your feelings towards your ex-boyfriend and help you cope with the break-up.
Advice #1: Agree with the breakup… for now…
The easiest thing to do now is agree with the break-up. I understand this may not be what your mind is telling you to do, but doing so will do you more good than harm. Here’s why:
- It is easier to go with the flow than to fight against the current. Since your ex is firm about his decision in breaking up with you, reserve and share your energy with your baby. Being in your stomach,your baby needs your support to gain good nutrition for growth. Your mood also affects how your baby grows.
- Agreeing with the break up will come as a shock to your boyfriend. One of the reasons your ex decided to breakup with you is because he is afraid that he needs to cope with your mood swings and bring up a new born child. It is a huge responsibility for a guy and your partner probably isn’t ready. By agreeing with the break-up, you are showing him that you are able to cope on your own. He will be pleasantly surprised and relieved – which gives him the time to reconsider things between the both of you.
Advice #2: Take care of yours and your baby’s health
Learning how to cope with a breakup while pregnant also involves taking care of yours and the baby’s health. Your baby is probably only a few weeks or months old and you have to mind your emotional feelings and prevent yourself from physical harm – to ensure that your baby grows with good health.
Also, our self esteem takes a plunge during a relationship break-up. Thus, a quick way to regain your composure, is to look in the mirror and ask yourself ‘Is this the person I want to be? Do I want my own skin, weight and look to suffer even more?’ You will hear yourself thinking ‘I want to be happy. I expect my life to be better. I want my to win my partner back. But…’ Once you reach this point, stop thinking about the issue.
The key is to focus on what you want instead of what is stopping you from having what you want. It will help you increase your emotional and general happiness.
Also, your breasts will grow bigger during pregnancy. Use it to tempt the man you love back into a relationship with you but don’t have sex too soon. Having sex with him too fast will take away the attraction prematurely. Try talking to him. Make him commit. You’re in control.
Advice #3: Get the support, love and comfort from the people who loves you
