Preparing for the BIG day

During the last month of the pregnancy I was stressing a lot about several things - what to put in my hospital bag, what is a birth plan and how to recognize that the labor is starting. I have read so many stories for births that had happened everywhere else, but not in the hospital, that I was really worried not to miss the signs until it’s too late.

Eventually, after experiencing it all, I realized that the body knows best and we should just have faith in our instincts. Even if the hospital is trying to delay your coming by suggesting you to wait a few more hours, if you know it’s time, then it’s time. It’s better to be a false alarm and to make one extra journey to the hospital, rather than risking yours and your baby’s health by experiencing birth at home or in a car. If I am to do everything all over again, there are few things I would pay more attention to, when I am preparing for the big day.

Our first baby class!

The time is passing so fast, we just started enjoying the baby sessions we were attending every Thursday and sadly they came to an end. But I would like to tell you how much we loved the 5 weeks during which they lasted.

I can’t get enough of… my baby’s smell!

There isn't a day I skip praising how amazingly nice my baby smells. And I am sure I am not the only one suffering from this “addiction”.  I have heard in movies when mothers say that their baby’s head smells of love or unicorns, hearts, stars, unicorn teardrops, all at once, but I thought it is more like cute mother adoration, rather than a real sensation. Until, I had my baby in my arms and took a breath of his fresh skin. The smell was and is still dazzling, and isn't disappearing.

The day I gave birth and how I will never be the same again

Giving birth is one of the most amazing and unique experience a woman has in her life, not only because she gives birth to a new human being, but also because she goes through an extraordinary pain. It’s not a pretty event, on the contrary, but in the end we experience one of the most beautiful and heartwarming moments in our lives – seeing our babies for the first time. There is much that can be said about labor, and there is not one and the same experience, that’s why I want to share mine with you, because it proved a real turning point in my life.

Dear diary, here is my first post

On Tuesday my baby will be 10 weeks old, it will be 10 weeks since I became a mother, and a whole new chapter in my life has started. Actually this whole transition started more than 9 months ago when I realized I am pregnant and the news turned my world completely upside down. Since then me and my partner have gone down a long path together that has led us to the moment we were holding our baby for the first time, with tears in our eyes, feeling like never before. With all the overwhelming love and joy, also came the realization that we will never be the same again, we won’t be two anymore, but three, and that not us but the little creature in our arms will come first, whatever we do.
