Calling all pregnant women! You might have realised by now that your body is producing a miracle-a-minute. The extraordinary way that your system has naturally turned into a baby-nurturing-wonderland is incredible. Blows your mind, doesn’t it!? Your baby is getting the goods and this is always a reassuring thing, however, sometimes the flaw in the system is when YOU need to rest.
Welcoming parenthood, also welcomes a world of sleeplessness, but did anyone tell you that the sleep would start to be sapped well before bub arrives?
With a boulder for a stomach, continual pummels from the inside and an eternal need to pee… it’s a miracle that a pregnant woman catches any shut-eye at all.
When talking with expectant mums, I’ve always majorly under-played the extent to which their life is about to change.
Sure, there’s going to be lots of new joy, wonder, and excitement, but a newborn, by nature, can leave you a little.. rattled, scratching your head, wondering how the heck you got yourself here (although I’m sure your memory isn’t quite that bad).
