Why is it that there are books on pregnancy, what to expect for your delivery and what to do after you bring that child home but there are no books or warnings on what you will be left with after those 9 months?!
Maybe people told me but I just thought oh that will never happen to me or I was so consumed with this baby in my tummy that I didn't listen. Either way- I see it now and I'm not so sure I think its fair. During pregnancy you are blessed with thicker more shiny locks after you have your baby, it all falls out- at the same time, I swear I feel like I'm going bald! As pregnancy continues your boobs get bigger, after your baby come they get lots bigger then- your done breastfeeding and you look like a 10 yr old girl again. Before you get pregnant you have smooth young looking skin, as your baby grows so does that smooth looking skin but it stretches more than grows so after that baby comes, you are left with saggy, squishy, stretchmarks on your saggy now squishy tummy.
On top of all that your hips get bigger and never go back, no matter how good your eating and exercising you don't shrink back within a few weeks or even months like you used to before you had a baby.
**For those blessed women that cant relate to this post- Good for you, but Don't leave a comment :)
Good thing this little girl laying next to me is totally worth it-
I just wish it was different :)

Have you ever heard of/read "What to Expect the First Year." It's by the same author as "What to Expect When You're Expecting."

Absolutely none of it applied to Chloe, but others have raved about it. You might look at that one :)

go Utes!
