As soon as I told be husband the news I think he realized that this was a fear that I’d had for years and now it was like a nightmare becoming reality. He became very supportive and ready to do whatever we needed to do to make this baby.
When I was finally able to celebrate seeing those happy, two pink lines on a pregnancy test, a million emotions and thoughts ran through my mind. One of which was how I would cope with fluctuating hormones and my high risk for PPD.
I want to share what REALLY happens on the “other side." I love my daughter, and I love being a mom; however, the canned advice that we feed each other is not doing us new moms any favors.
As women starting this new Mommy journey, we each plan how we’ll handle these various situations and picture our lives post-baby in a certain way.
