Partaking in the creation of life is a wonderful experience. Think about it, for nine months (give or take) a baby is growing in your womb. Granted there will be good times and not so good times during this experience, nevertheless, the experience is there. I can recall the anticipation of all my bundles of joy. I remember them all so vividly as though it was just yesterday. I remember the kicks and movement within. The greatest memory is when the tiny bundles were placed into my arms for the very first time, each time, three times total.
Parents, please understand that taking on this very important role in life is a sacrificial role. There is no room for selfishness, especially in the early stages. There is a being that has now become totally dependent on you.
Moms, you have just advanced from morning sickness and all the other “quirky” things that come along with a pregnancy to having a little one in your home disrupting every routine you previously had in place. There will be multitudes of adjustments—sleep schedule, meal preparation, house cleaning, etc. I think you get the picture. No need to panic~~remember that you still need to tend to self in order to be of great benefit to this new bundle which you have now welcomed into your home.
