I feel like I’ve joined some sort of secret (yet massive) club. It’s the mom club. It’s the club where nobody warned you about all the bizarre things you’d go through during ‘initiation.’ It’s also a club where (apparently) you forget all the weirdness a few months after baby is born. Well, I haven’t forgotten yet. And, moreover, there are a bunch of things I wish I had known before. So I’ve put together this vlog with all the things I learned about pregnancy and labor. Don’t worry, only one of them is semi-graphic but I don’t use visual aids.
It’s a longer video so if you’re short on time and want to skip to one in particular, here they are with minute markers.
one (0:30) – loss of boundaries
two (1:07) – not eating for two
three (1:55) – unsolicited advice
four (3:10) – no unusual side effects
five (4:21) – birth plan bust
six (5:20) – long gone modesty
seven (6:03) – pain with a purpose
eight (7:50) – not a real massage
nine (8:50) – beyond boob pain
ten (9:51) – power couple
