From the moment you find out you’re pregnant, you start worrying. Will the test lines get darker? How come I don’t feel any movement? These are the things that went through my head almost daily. It’s complete worth it in the end, trust me. In just a few short months, you’ll be holding your sweet little babe.
When I was in labor with my first, it was not the movie theatre “my water broke” scene. It was just a trickle and I didn’t realize it was my water for over 12 hours! The hospital tour and pamphlets don’t tell you about that or about the amount of blood you’re going to be seeing for the next two months, either. In fact, after my baby was born and they handed me a big bag of pads, I was confused. Turns out, you really will need those mattress sized pads for at least a few weeks after birth. It’s like your period on steroids, so be prepared.
Not all of it is scary though, feeling those first little kicks, finding out the gender, and decorating the nursery are all wonderful and fun things you get to do while being pregnant. And let’s not forget, shopping for baby clothes. I’m a sucker for a cute baby outfit!
