Coping with Resentment on Bed Rest

It's that moment when you want to roll your eyes at a woman who's complaining about how big she feels in her third trimester when you're on bed rest hoping so hard that you will get to see 28 weeks.

That moment when a pregnant woman shows off her baby shower pictures online and you want to throw your phone out the window because you're angry that you never got to have one.

That moment when you get texts from your family who is all together at a cousin's wedding and the tears burn your face, frustrated that you had to miss this occasion you were so looking forward to.

That moment when you want to scream at the top of your lungs to every pregnant woman out there who is at work, at the gym or living her life on her terms, "You have no idea how easy you have it!" (Tweet that!)

Know what I mean?

If you do, watch the video below to learn how you can cope so that anger and resentment doesn't eat away at you while you're fighting for your baby.
