I’ve been a mother now for two months, am apart of several Facebook mom/ twin groups and took the prenatal classes before giving birth. So now that I’ve proven myself an expert, let me share with you what I’ve learned.
Today is my actual due date; January 6, 2018; and instead of anticipating the twin’s arrival, tomorrow they will be one month old!
What a WHIRLWIND this past month has been. It feels like it flew by, yet I remember each night, feeling like that feeding would NEVER end. Nights and days all mesh into one, but maybe that’s only because you don’t get an actual night’s sleep to differentiate the two
I sit here at home, like every other Saturday morning, except it’s not like every other Saturday morning. I have two adorable wee men swaddled up beside me making little grunting noises. I’ve just fed and changed them but it’s a race against time before they wake up for their next feeding.
There’s a million things I should be doing right now, but I really wanted to make a post about my birth story. It may have been long, not the way I imagined, or something I would even think I’d want to remember, but, it’s my story. And, it’s something I want to share and recall.
So, let the race against time begin.
I remember people asking me if I was nervous to open the box. I just remember feeling really anxious… until it actually became time to open it! When we started walking towards the box and our family and friends gathered to watch - my heart started to race. It was actually more of an emotional event than I thought. As I took the lid off I started to cry.
Even if you don’t consider yourself a morning person there are things you can do, or start to do, to build a healthy routine and start your day off on the right foot.
The first hour you are awake is what sets the tone for the rest of your day. If you can build a healthy daily morning routine you are more likely to have a successful, productive day, every day.
