Things I wish I knew

  • No matter how many Kegals you do, your pelvic floor is bust the moment you have that baby.
  • Drinking one Coke or one coffee or one soft scoop ice cream won’t do anything to your foetus.
  • Babies cry….a lot, for everything going. When they fine tune the art of talking, they talk…a lot.
  • Offers to babysit quickly dissipate once you have the real life thing.
  • I wish someone had told me to just to what I wanted as many times as I wanted. I would have gone to the cinema to watch all the rubbish romcoms I will probably now never see.
  • Delete space on your tv, you ain’t watching that stuff so save yourself and other half the hassle and fine tune it.
  • Contractions hurt. They hurt more than labour and they hurt.
  • You will spend a lot of money on pregnancy tests before you find one that says ‘positive’ and actually the cheap ones work just as well as the expensive ones. If you are, you are. If you aren’t, you aren’t.
  • There is no such thing as personal space, complete strangers will want to rub your belly.
  • Pregnancy glow is just your hormones playing havoc and you sweating 24/7. Aim to spend the last trimester somewhere really cold!
  • You actually wear maternity clothes before And after birth, takes a while for all that muscle to contract back into some sort of shape.
