    Pregnant me - don't eat so many cheeseburgers!

    Pregnant me - enjoy it, you really will miss it
    Dont eat silverside damn it, its NOT worth the heart burn and reflux >_<

    New mum me

    It's okay that you didnt feel an instant "bond" that does not mean you dont love your child, you are sore and out of it. it'll be fine

    watch out for the mastitis, that "empty" feeling people describe is real, the fact that you DONT get that is BAD! you're gunna get sick.

    Secondly, its not just a cold. Ds WILL go to hospital and spend a week on oxygen, after your experiance there you will be terrified that he is going to die.
    Dont worry so much, enjoy his baby time as he will be fine (minus a few rashes, reactions to antibiotics and croup lol)

    Pregnant: stress at work is not worth it!
    Parent: ask for help and sleep when you have the chance, sleep deprivation is the worst.

    Yes!!! Next time around I'll be asking for a script of maxalon at my very first docs visit! Also, kegal exercises - DO THEM!

    As a new mum: again, do the exercises they tell you to in hospital. Get the proper epidural, not the self administer one that didn't work. Try a little harder at breast feeding, even tho you don't enjoy it.

    As a pregnant woman: you can get away with dressing down when pregnant.

    As a first time mum: if your out of your pajamas and cooked dinner, your having a good day.
