January 23, 2012 Baby, Family, Motherhood, Pregnancy, Women's Health, Working Moms 25 CommentsDid you catch my other post awhile back about the things I wish I had known about being pregnant? I wasn’t sure how becoming a mom would change me, but it definitely has, probably in even more ways than I realize on my own. Speaking of breastfeeding (or exclusively pumping), you will be incredibly thirsty all the time until you stop. Changing poopy diapers is really not that bad except when you’re in a public place with no easy access to a {relatively clean} changing table. How much more anxious and worried I would be about my baby once he was no longer inside my body. It’s okay to ask people to leave or to not visit, regardless of their relation to you. That’s awesome that you and your BFF had kids so close and will be able to talk mom-stuff. I realize that kids are takers, as they should be, and that being a mom is the most selfless job in the whole world.
The morning Eliot was born, before I knew what the day would hold, I wrote in my journal about how I felt.


I read some books and talked to many other moms before I had Connor, but some things you just learn for yourself regardless of how much you think you know.
There is no way I could have known before having a child and honestly, I wouldn’t have wanted to. Everyone tells you it’s hard and you get no sleep, but it was harder than I ever imagined in the beginning. I knew it would hurt and be a challenge, but it is literally one of the hardest things I’ve ever done in my life. I also realize that you really do miss them as babies when they get bigger and that as hard as it was caring for them as newborns you wish you could turn back time just to snuggle then as an infant one more time. As Kristen mentioned in her post, it’s kind of a waste of time to read excessively about being pregnant (and especially about labor and delivery) because there is only so much you can control! Thank God because it’s hard enough to find time to keep the place clean without this little situation on my hands. Now that I am no longer nursing, my mood has stabilized for the most part (not sure my husband would agree), but I find that I’m just more¬†emotional.
I’ve had a few rough weeks with Connor where I had no idea what was going on, but then I realized he was just hungry.


However, I also didn’t know that I might not feel an instant connection or bond with him.
For some new moms this might seem crazy, but she let me rest, did all the cleaning, cooking, laundry, etc.
Chase only took 40 min naps for several months and people were trying to tell me to let him cry. My love for my husband has grown since seeing him as a dad and having him as my partner in raising another human being. I loved him right away, but I was so out of it and tired after delivery that it kind of felt like an out of body experience for me. That you would worry and stress about every little thing every second of the day and your husband would come home from work being away from your child for 10+ hours and would spend time sorting the mail. And most of all…it’s amazing and better than anything you have ever experienced before!
