Keep In Mind When Pregnant.....
Despite how it may feel, at times pregnancy goes by quick and before you know it your little one will be here and the days will just fly by. In hindsight, there are many things that you might do differently had you known some of the things below:
The days are long and the years are short. A day will come when you long for the moment you are living now.
Don’t be afraid to ignore peoples advice. What woks for one person may not work for you. Don’t try to force yourself to do things the way a book says you should if it doesn’t fit your lifestyle.
Take a lot of pictures and videos. Time flies by and some day those pictures and videos will be your most prized possessions.
Worry about your weight later. It can feel pressing to lose the baby weight, but it will happen in time.
It is okay to let your baby cry a little. Babies will learn how to self sooth if you don’t run to their aid every time they fuss a little.
Trust you instincts. You usually know what is right and what is wrong so sometimes it is best to drown out the noise of others and tune into your inner self.
Some parents instantly feel connected to their babies, but other parents take some time to bond with their baby. Either is fine and perfectly normal.
It is good to have a schedule, but if you have trouble establishing one it’s not the end of the world. As time passes, you and your baby will develop a routine that works for you.
Try and leave the house at least once a day. Even if you just run to the store for diapers or milk, the change of scenery will do you good.
