First Time Mothers: Ignorance Is Bliss

by Megan (follow)
Your Stories (98)      Pregnancy (25)     
As soon as those lines appear on the stick and you get a positive, so many things run through your mind.

Getting a belly!

Feeling the kicks!

Creating this little human that can only be made by you!

Teeny tiny little baby clothes!

Then all the things you look forward to after the baby is born.



Smiles and laughs!

You just can’t wait to share your news with the world. After waiting weeks to let everyone know, you feel like you might explode. Then finally, that 3 month mark comes and you can let it out!

But then it happens…

“Sleep now while you can.”

“Oh, a summer pregnancy – you will hate that!”

“Let me tell you about how horrible labour is.”

“Hope you’re ready to give up your body.”

Well, thank you so much everyone for making my feel terrible. I don’t want to know about all the awful things that may or may not come along with pregnancy, labour and motherhood.

I am excited! I want to talk about how amazing it is that my avocado sided baby is developing hearing, and all those facts that I read up on every week of my pregnancy.

I want to picture myself holding, cuddling and kissing my sweet new born. I want to create a birthing plan and think if I’m prepared, that I will be able to push through without pain relief.

Please let me have this time of my life as special as I imagined. Please don’t fill it with negativity.

Ignorance is bliss!
