I couldn’t believe that I have a real life baby of my own and I can take him home!!! It was so surreal! I loved having my baby!

So scary.

I was extremely worried and upset because my son came 2 months early. I thought I was going to lose him.

It's a lot on your body.

The first night of motherhood I was exhausted and I felt off. I had migraines from the epidural (spinal leak) and I was overwhelmed.

A mother's nightmare.

My daughter had complications after birth and had to be taken to a children's hospital. I wasn't allowed to leave until the morning. I spent my first night without my baby. I felt empty and so scared.

Ugh.

I felt like crap and hated it because I kept getting judged by nurses in the hospital because I chose not to breastfeed and I ended up needing an emergency c-section. It was a rough night.

From:

You want to protect your baby.

I was so proud of the tiny human I made. I wanted everyone to come pay tribute and bring me snacks-but not hold her. I had a vivid picture in my head of someone dropping her and it scared me. I was also SO tired.
