Over 7 years ago, I was pregnant (and stayed pregnant) for the first time and oh, the questions I had! It’s an amazing experience, but when you don’t know what to expect it can seem overwhelming and terrifying. But it’s magical at the same time. Talk about confusion!
There are many things I did during my first pregnancy that weren’t an issue for me with my later pregnancies. I worried about what I was eating, if that fall could have hurt the baby, I bought all the must-have items and read everything. It had a lot to do with not knowing what to expect and a lot to do with trying to “play the part” of the perfect pregnant person.
During my next pregnancies, it was a lot different because I had more of an idea of what to expect concerning pregnancy, the baby, and what it’s like to be a new mom. There is so much to worry about when you’re pregnant, but there are some things that you only do during your first pregnancy — probably.
