Mommy in Me: Top 10

Ten Things I've learned while pregnant:


  • Every pregnancy and woman is different.
  • Water will become your best friend.
  • Soothing music does help you and the baby sleep at night.
  • You can never be fully ready for a baby even if it is planned.
  • Make sure to stay current on any medication if needed and prenatal vitamins (make sure to get the pill as well as the chewables just in case you are unable to swallow pills.)
  • Stay active, especially walking.
  • Watch videos and read up on information to make sure you know every way of child birth and everything that needs to be done before and/or after the baby.
  • Ice packs will also become your best friend. lol
  • Your nipples will swell, it's common but everything new that happens is also scary as well.
  • Last but not least....you have no censor. I don't care what I say, I don't care if I pass gas in front of family or let someone know what's going on with me, I don't care to rub my breast when they ache in public, I just don't care about anything except for Chasity being as happy as she can be. I know that was a bit much lol but no need to sugarcoat it.

@Miss Cindia, yes I'm pregnant and so excited. lol Some people don't understand the pain I go through I swear. Especially when I'm at work rubbing my breast, they look at me crazy.

@Darianne, you just stop caring lol I don't know why but after you get to a certain month you're like ok I'm done trying to please everybody.

If I was you, I wouldn't pay anyone any attention. I didn't. Even before I was pregnant I never cared. [shrugs] It's beautiful when you're in your own world with baby. I use to talk to savannah as if she was born already. People thought I was talking to myself. Still I stayed in my own world after she was born. She became my best friend.

@FriendlyVirgo ; I know exactly what you mean, most people say I come off as rude or stuck up but I hate hearing stories or what someone else has been through. I'm enjoying my pregnancy and my baby you know. I'm not concern with what others have to say. lol I thought I was the only one who talks to their baby. The moments I love is when I talk she kicks.

You hit the nail on the head with your first tip because my second pregnancy was COMPLETELY different and much more painful than my first.

When I was pregnant, both times, I drank so much water and I think that's why I'm still so in love with it, other than 70% of my body is made up of water anyway.. but that's neither here nor there.

Also, TLC: A Baby Story was what I watched all day, every day. Well, that and Golden Girls.

Do you plan on breastfeeding?

Congratulations on your pregnancy! I know all of these things to be true. One thing that everyone always talked about that I didn't have with either of my babies was weird cravings. But I did have an enormous craving for things I already loved.

Jassy said...

from one mother to another : AMEN ! lol .

Shakemia Meekyleia said...

@Carla, I'm starting to drink a lot more juice. I have been a water person all my life but I don't know what it is about juice. I do want to breastfeed and I'm hoping to have success with that because most people don't or they give up.

@Shannon; Thank you! I'm just like you I crave normal foods but when I crave them it's like I have to have chipotle 3 times a week or a sub. I overdo it sometimes but they make me happy.

@Jassy; I'm glad you agree! lol I'm slowly trying to learn boo.
