Pregnant me: yeah keep smiling, you have no idea what you're in for!!!!
New mummy me: Trust your gut. If you think something isn't right, it's probably not. Persist until you get answers and an action plan. You're a good mum, and you will get out of the fog soon. It gets much much easier.

As a pregnant woman: do some research on labour & birth. Sticking your head in the sand & trying to not think about it doesn't help. It's better to have an idea of what's coming. Ask
Questions! Eat, better & exercise more as well. And enjoy every second!
As a new mum: trust your instincts, let them guide you. Don't be afraid to tell people to back off when it comes to your baby. And breastfeeding is easy once you get used to it. It may take 9 weeks but then you can enjoy months of easier feeding. Also enjoy every second it flies by!!!

Pregnant me = Take photos, you'll regret it for the rest of your life if you only have 2 bad ones
New Mum = Trust your gut. ALWAYS. Drs, Midwives breastfeeding 'experts' aren't always right.

As a pregnant woman: Pack your bag and bubs bag early, cos there is a chance bubs will be 4.5 weeks early!!
As a new mummy: Trust your feelings, if something doesn't feel right it probably isn't, but don't be afraid to say something to someone.
And when the going gets tough and you think you can't do it anymore take a step back and take a big breath. You'll blink one day and everything will be better, bub will be great, turning 1 and running away from you before you knew it!

As a pregnant woman: don't say stupid things in labour...eg, I don't want to do this anymore, I want an abortion, and I don't care how you get it out just get it out of me! lol....yes I still to this day many years later have not lived any of those comments down.
As a new mummy: Sleep is important. Sleep when bub is sleeping, forget the housework someone else can do it and if the house is a mess and someone turns up unexpectedly to visit, too bad.

To pregnant me: go to the antenatal classes, don't drop out of pregnancy yoga, look into ways for coping with labour, stop eating so much food and keep exercising, kegels, ask questions of my OB and midwife
To first time mum me: sleep when she sleeps! Don't be too hard on yourself (something I have to constantly tell myself), relax and enjoy.
But, DD is only 4.5 months.

Pregnant me - do not get induced, go home stay home and birth at home.
Second baby - placenta previa is NOT your fault, quit beating yourself up about it, bed rest will be a long road but well worth it. You are a strong woman and keeping your baby in will be harder then any labour but so so worth it.
First time mum - see a lactation consultant, take more photos of yourself and the baby, don't be afraid to ask for help. Even if you're super super clucky WAIT for that second baby, 2 under 2 is bloody hard work.
