Globe Trotting and New Beginnings

The Fourth Trimester

Posted on: August 30, 2013

People had told me that  the first few months after you have a baby are crazy… I think it’s really hard to fathom what and how hard it is until you actually go through it.

I feel like there is a lot of emphasis on the pregnancy… very rightly so! You are growing a human being! but the first many few weeks are like a rude awakening after feeling like a diva for 9 months!   New parents need to emphasize on the first few weeks. It is HARD!  New Mama’s need a lot of support because we are stressed about everything! The baby is sleeping too much oh is everything ok? The baby is not sleeping enough oh is everything ok?? And being emotional and sleep deprived with a screaming baby doesn’t help either.

I don’t think the stress ever goes away and is part of being a parent (my mom still worries about me) you probably just get used to being stressed all the time! haha

I am just now starting to feel a little normal. I feel like have the feedings and sleep under some kind of control… There are still the crazy days but getting less as time goes on… until of course the next curve ball comes our way. Just when you think you may have figured out your baby they decide to change things up on you! But in the end it’s all worth it to see that one toothless smile. 😀
