Your first year as a mom can be quite intense, full of joyous moments, sleepless nights, exhaustion and awe-inspiring experiences. One of my friends is pregnant again and as soon as she shared the news, I began remembering certain milestones that even now make me smile or fill my eyes with tears. The truth is, I felt like a mom even before I gave birth. My life changed from the moment I learned I was pregnant and I began asking myself about whether every little thing I did was safe for my baby or not. You could say that from the moment I knew I would be a mother, I stopped thinking just in terms of myself; anything I did also affected another human being.
Here are 10 unforgettable moments in the first months of becoming a mom, from the moment your confirm the news to when your baby starts sleeping through the night (talk about life-changing!), including your little one’s birthday.
