As you all mommies haven’t known me, I’m the person who always taking a break from moms-job at least once every 2 weeks. So, after I skipped many weeks of my me-time, finally last weekend I’ve got a chance to spend it with my other mommy’s best friends. At first, we did catch up few things about work, business, life as a woman and stuff. Instinctively, without us realized it, the topic changed to the same old mommies’ topic – kids! Don’t you dare to let off this topic because you just CAN’T even you tried so hard. BET ME! Mother will always be mother. The first chapter was so lovely, talking about how sad we were because the kids is growing up so fast, we don’t pay attention much to them and how we regret it for the rest of our life so on and on and on until we came across the unforgettable memory – PREGNANCY!
Mollycoddled for whole 9 months is just splendid! Your wish comes true almost all the time! Just named any food that what you want to eat, hubs will be rushed to find it for you! Not to mention, places that you’ll wish to be for your babymoon, hubs rush to book a flight ticket and trivago-ing hotels and even things that you eyeing all this time, you’ll get it mommies…you’ll get it! All you have to do is PREGNANT! You see, that’s the beauty part of it. Me and my besties plainly not talking about it. We’ve been talking about pregnant! Being pregnant! Carried another human in our stomach for 9 months! Carrying extra kg (I barely carrying my own weight! Imagine have to carry few extra kg on this body…sigh..) feels like to stay at home for the whole pregnancy! Pregnant is no joke – how we worn-out at earliest pregnant journey to the end etcetera. The real life of pregnant mommies.
One of my friends describe her first pregnancy as a ‘collection’ of prominent memories to be kept. She’s quite lucky, with all the allergic thingy has been transferred to her hubs, a lil’ bit drained-out moment for few months, not much hassle on her pregnancy. Overall, she’s actually having smooth sailing pregnancy journey with a touch of lil’ storm here and there continued with the sunshine towards the end. You’ll might be saying, nah…her pregnancy story is too good to be truth, but that’s the reality mommies. Some mommies will be having a smooth pregnancy while some may not. Unlike my other BFF, her second pregnancy was the worst! The storm is everywhere, here and there during her earliest pregnancy up till’ almost the end! Morning sickness is not only in the morning, it happened mostly ALL THE TIME! She too been admitted few times due to her extreme morning sickness! The deadly road is not end yet for her, adult diapers is her best friends during night! (peeing- you know what I mean mommies..) She is suffering water retention on her feet too! Make it hard and uncomfortable for her to move around. She manages to handle it victoriously!
While me, having a usual-looking-pregnant mom, not that smooth, fairly storm and sunshine through sailing my pregnancy ship. Hideous looking feet, checked! Morning sickness like nobody business, checked! Eat like you never eat thousand years and gain weight, checked! Breakouts at my early pregnant, checked! (I know I wrote about how teenage looking skin you can get during your pregnancy from my past entry, but I don’t lie about it. It’s true but some mommies experience may vary and it’s including myself!) Constipate during pregnancy, checked! The list is going on and on and on….
Mommies, our pregnancy experience may differ from first pregnancy to our next pregnancy. The traits may be different form one mommies to other mommies. Some mommies may get so lucky to experience less ‘challenges’ and some are lucky to experience challenges. Whatever experience that we might face, we are all LUCKY to be mother, don’t we? Worry not, the challenges are just temporary, and it will fade away literally. What’s left is memoirs to ponder for the rest of our life.
Looking back, me and besties regret nothing being pregnant especially being mother. Though we do sometimes turn out to be ‘momster’ but at the end of it, we appreciate life as it is and forever will hold on to this! We wave our goodbye with immensely proud mom smile on our face.
How about you mommies? We would love to catch your pregnancy experience too! Till we meet to the next entry. Take care. Cheers!
