My 30 year old newly married daughter is pregnant 10 weeks. she is very sick, and works long 12 hour days as a nurse...with four off thank goodness.
She has always compared herself to everyone around her..looks, weight and everything else. She is beautiful and has carried some extra weight for a while but nothing serious.
What can I do to help her? My encouragement falls on deaf ears and we clash often. I stay away from touchy subjects, but my main worry is her happiness and her ability to cope and not let this time in her life be marred by such negative feelings.
