You are tired, uncomfortable, in pain, irritable, hormonal and anxious. It is a roller coaster of emotions and it is damn hard.
The last few weeks of pregnancy were the hardest for me so I thought I would share with you some of the things I did to get through it without completely losing my mind.
I'm very excited to have had the opportunity to ask the wonderful Nat Kringoudis about the pill and the effects that it has on our body, trying to get pregnant and ovulating.
If you are thinking about getting pregnant and are currently on the pill or have just come off it, you are going to love this interview.
I was on the pill for 12 years before I went off it last February. My hubby and I then started trying for a baby 4 months later. It blew my mind how the pill had effected my body, I hadn't had period pain and acne issues ever but it hit me full on when I stopped taking the pill. It scared me and I decided to read up on what the pill actually does to your body. It is a worry and I won't ever be going back on it.
Over to Nat now with some great advice and information...
As a woman you think you can breastfeed because that is what we are made to do, right? We have a baby and then we breastfeed, but little do they tell you how hard it can be.
Over the past few weeks I have come across other first time mum's that have really been struggling with breastfeeding. My heart breaks for them because it is such a touchy and emotional subject.
You want it so bad, but then for whatever reason it just doesn't work for you.
I feel so blessed that I'm able to breastfeed my daughter but it didn't come easy. I can totally see why women give up.
And maybe you are one of them; know that it is okay, you're not alone. And most importantly, you're not a bad mother!
:: I love being a mum!
It is definitely the most rewarding job but of course at the same time it is a lot of hard work.
My daughter has taught me so much in her short time of being on this Earth and I've learnt a lot about myself as well. Including deep down I am a patient person. I have never been a patient person but with Ava I am completely patient and calm which is exactly what I wanted to be.
You know the saying "Calm mum, calm baby."
Ava is a good sleeper and she feeds really well, so I'm a lucky one. I have been given the easy baby first like so many mum's before me. But today I wanted to share with you my truth's and the funny things you do as a mum that I thought I may not do. You do whatever you need to do to get a calm and content baby.
Here are my truths and learning's so far...
