So much of adjusting to having your first baby is about wrapping your head around a couple of things:
- you can no longer do whatever you want – you are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – forever…….?
- if you attach yourself to anything – especially something you feel like might keep you sane like a sleep pattern or a “routine” – you will end up asking yourself repeatedly what the magic formula was when that time ends.
- you feel crazy, alone, bored and overwhelmed and out of control – most of the time.
Yeah, this is all normal, you will amaze yourself over and over again. Pay most attention to that – every day you will do things you never knew you were capable of. Expansion is happening as hard and fast for you as it is for your baby.
