First Time Mothers: Ignorance Is Bliss

by Megan (follow)
Your Stories (83)      Pregnancy (17)     
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!

There are pros and cons to every size family, but let me tell you why a family of three is so magical to me.
When my daughter started daycare, I spent a lot of time trying to find the right fit for her and our family. I did a lot of research and asked a lot of questions. Over and over again though, the answer to my question would come back the same, "she'll be fine."
Despite the help I'd had to start breastfeeding, I felt like there was no real help to stop and it felt incredibly lonely trying to figure out how I was going to ever make the change.
