A while back, someone posted the same thread in "I'm Pregnant
" forum. One lady shared her pregnancy affirmation and it clicked for me and I use it whenever I begin to feel a bit off, it now feels like a mantra when I say it, it calms me and refocuses my energy to "us".
I am a happy, healthy momma
I have a happy, healthy baby
This is a happy, healthy pregnancy
We will have a happy, healthy pregnancy.
I like the simplicity of it. Here are some others that I've collected:

You are a woman, a daughter of daughters.
Within you is the strength, courage, and love of a woman, of a mother.
You have been given the gift because you can do this, it has always been in you to do this.
Do not fear what is to be, rather, go forth in knowledge and confidence.
Follow your heart, your instincts, they will not lie to you.
