When it comes to being pregnant, you are the star of the show. You are getting all the attention, all the questions, all the gifts, all the advice (oh the advice), and your significant other often gets left in the dark. Sometimes, it is like they are all but forgotten. I mean let’s face it, you are the one growing that baby.
I lay in bed, my mind is racing. It was a long day and I am exhausted, but I cannot settle down. “Take a warm bath.” “Try this lavender essential oil roller.”
“It is totally normal, you just had a baby.”
Somewhere my thoughts go awry and yet I cannot stop it.
So, you just had a baby. You are sore, swollen, and have all kinds of fluids leaking from various places. And somehow, you still look pregnant. Allow yourself grace and time to recover. In the meantime, let’s discuss your physical self in these early postpartum days and what you can do to support your body in it’s recovery.
As you eagerly await your baby’s arrival into this world, a lot of emotions may occur: joy, anticipation, nervousness, stress, excitement, etc. These emotions grow even stronger as your due date draws closer!
