I’ve always enjoyed reading people’s birth stories online because no two CAN or WILL be the same. I think that’s an important note to start off with because if you are a first-time mom (currently) pregnant, take what you can from my experience but know that yours will be completely unique and designed just for you! God’s plan (and timing) is always perfect!
Each mama’s birthing journey is so unique and special, and I’m excited to share mine with you today.
The past month we’ve been able to spend with our new little one has completely erased all the aches and pains of pregnancy and birth. People will tell you, but you cannot fathom all the feelings that welcoming a new life into this world brings. We are still on cloud nine and I spend every second of every day sitting in a puddle of overwhelming emotions that include gratitude, joy, pure bliss, extreme happiness, and the list goes on (some of these accompanied by tears), plus a fair share of frustration and sleep deprivation. Postpartum is an interesting journey which I’m still in the early stages of navigating, but overall I’m beaming with joy and can tell you that this is the best feeling in the world. New mamas, get ready! It’s so exciting!!
