My top 5 Thing's i'd wished i'd known::


That I would be single 9 weeks into my pregnancy

I wished I’d known how deep the emotion I’d feel the first time I sore my baby on screen at my 12 week scan. I was just so amazed that this little person was growing inside me.

I wished I’d know that you could have morning sickness throughout your whole pregnancy.

That constipation and haemorrhoids were the norm

That even after you’ve done everything right during your birth and your baby was fine, things can take a turn for the worst 24 hours later.


Thankyou, smile smile smile
1. One of the places you can go is under the Expert Panel and then click on Baby and then Milk. You can also ask a direct question and have an expert answer it (or use the forum and ask the mum's)

2 - How everyone wants to scare you with their birth stories. The more horrifying it is, the more they want to share it.
- That everyone has an opinion on everything to do with pregnancy (but your opinion doesn't count as you are new to the game)
- That strangers will come up to you and pat your stomache
- That little old ladies will look at you, smile and then do a sneaky look at your ring finger to see if you are married (then frown if you don't have one, even if you are married and have had to take it off due to swelling).
- That your husband/partner will never understand what being tired and pregnant actually is.

The five things that i wished i knew before becoming pregnant.

- I wish i knew that I knew that there was more than finding out and giving birth, such as the fact that morning sickness doesn't just happen in the morning!
- The amount of food you want isn't necessarily more than what you thought you would expect to want!
- Your baby weight isn't exactly the easiest weight to shift!
- I didn't realise how attached you can get as soon as you see the heartbeat
- I was not aware of how crazy your hormones could get! Who would have thought that they could make you cry at Harry Potter!

=]

But all in all, being pregnant was the best experience i could ever ask for and wouldn't have changed anything!
The top 5 tips I wish I knew before I had my son...
1. Ignore all birth stories, they only cause you to worry over nothing.
2. You know your new born baby, don't let people push advice down your neck.
3. I wish I knew more about the baby blues that hit by day 3 with the hormones, it was lonely being in hospital when I would have been better at home with my partner, next baby I'm making sure I'm home by the 2nd day!
4. Let family and friends shower you with help and food, it doesn't last long so make the most of the attention and not say your fine. Let them bake and cook up a storm for you!
5. I never in my wildest dreams did I realise how much love I had for my newborn son until I held and cuddled him for the first time, he is a dream come true. I was on cloud 9 for weeks.
For breastfeeding info: https://www.huggies.com.au/baby-care/breastfeeding

1: How extremely emotional and sensitive you can be in the weeks after the birth, baby blues can be an understatement!!!
2: Research baby care and life after birth, not just the pregnancy and birth.
3: That when baby cries, everyone around you suddenly becomes a pediatrician and tries to diagnose whats wrong with baby (drove me crazy).
4: That when the child turns 1 years old and you're looking to return to work, that you may not want to leave your child and instead resign (before I fell pregnant I thought 1 yr would be enough time and I'd be ready to return to work).
5: That you may find it is really, really, really hard to leave your child/baby in the care of a babysitter (even trusted family) and instead only leave your child with anyone as an absolute last resort (aka no solo date nights with hubby).

5 things I wish I'd known before i was pregnant.......

1- I wish I knew that it is very very very painfull when your milk starts to come in!!! I found it hard to get to sleep, I couldn't roll over in bed and every bump and knock hurt like hell.

2- I wish I knew that I wasn't alone and that it's ok to ask for help when you need it.

3- I wish I knew more about computers so i could come onto sites like huggies and learn more on pregnancy etc...at the moment we are trying to fall pregnant again and this site has helped alot now my computer skills have improved!!!!

4- I wish I knew just how tired you REALLY get at the start and end of pregnancy. My goodness I slept every spare moment.

5- I wish I knew just how precious your baby becomes, what a miracle they are, how you can't ever imagine life without them and how life is so very very short, I would have started having babies years ago!!!

* losing baby weight would be hard work
* the emotional ride throughout the pregnancy & after the birth
* how hard the simplest things are to get done after a few sleepless nights
* the amount of love that you feel when you first see your baby even after you have been through hell to get to the point to holding your precious bundle
* not being able to wipe the smile off your face when you feel your bub kick for the first time
Answer 1. https://www.huggies.com.au/baby-care/breastfeeding
Answer 2.
*Parenthood is like a this secret society that you don't get to find out what it is about until you are inducted and can't go back. Then you find out that it is all about suffering and sacrifices for that sake of your baby
*There is like a million and one pregnancy related illness out there beside cramps and morning sickness so expect the unexpected
*If you are not quick enough when changing nappies, you might get to enjoy mopping liquid Number twos at 2 AM in the morning
*Get all the travel bugs out of you before childbirth, because for the first couple of years afterwards, traveling is like taking half the house with you. Fellow travelers on planes hates crying babies and they act like big babies whenever your baby crying for more that a minute.
*Everyone is an expert when it comes to giving advice, learn to politely thank them and ignore them, learn to trust your instinct more or get ONE good parental book and stick with it, the advice might not be optimal but it sure beats trying to work out which conflicting advice is best for you/your baby

5 things I wished I knew before before being pregnant:

1: your diet/exercise regime prior to pregnancy is just as important as when you are pregnant! So always eat right and exercise regularly

2: heartburn can be quite common ( and very annoying!)

3: it can take upto 3 days before your breast will produce milk so just be patient - it will come eventually

4: when your milk does come and your breasts are full ..... Boy, does it hurt!!

5: everyone always talks about the joys of being pregnant....no one ever tells you the not so good side of being pregnant....like the hormones, making you quite emotional, the tiredness, the morning/afternoon/night sickness, the heaviness, the back pain, the swollen ankles....the list is endless...but once you see your baby's precious face....all the bad just disappears and it's all worth it!
