Welcoming parenthood also welcomes a world of sleeplessness, but did anyone tell you that your sleep would start to be sapped well before baby even 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.
For the most part, the final stretch of pregnancy is spent asking the final down and dirty questions about labour and beyond. Discussions that include formerly un-speakable subjects: maxi-pads and stool softeners become common-place.
It’s funny the things that end up front and centre when forecasting the day of your baby’s birth.
For many mums-to-be, the highest priority is to name your new little human, for others, paint colours for the nursery. By all means go for it, I wouldn’t dare block the ambitions of a soon-to-be-lioness!
Immediately following the arrival of your bundle of joy, you will want to focus on two priorities. Loving-up with your new babe AND giving your outrageously awesome bod a chance to recover. Don’t let a lack of prep steal your attention away from these two priorities.
