Flip Flop

  • I said I would never be a stay at home mom. That changed as soon as we heard a heartbeat on the ultrasound.
  • I said I would have a natural birth like my mom did. That changed when we learned that I was literally growing a watermelon, and not one of those small perfectly round seedless watermelons-we're talking a Texas State Fair watermelon. 
  • I said I wouldn't have my baby as my Facebook profile picture. That statement remained true for about 10 hours until I had access to a laptop and my camera's memory card.
  • I said that I would only nurse my baby and never use formula. That changed when my milk didn't come in until day 5 and my baby needed more nutrients than what I could give. Baby trumps Pride every time.
Aroo?

But ya know what?  I also said that I would struggle with post-pardom depression based on my previous battles with depression, anxiety, and self-harm for so many years. To my surprise, the hormones get to me in the form of giggle fits and crying at beautiful moments.

Basically, I said I would do one thing and I either changed my mind about it or I was wrong with my prediction. At the end of the day, I have a beautiful baby with my beautiful husband and I am happy. :) Very happy.



And by the way, I'm officially under 200lbs!! I've lost 20 pounds in a week! (It helps to have a 10 pound baby in the first place.) Now I only have about 30 more to lose. I'm really looking forward to working out again.

  1. And how are cloth diapers going? ;-)

    P.S. I totally support your cheap-yness on the cloth diapers.

  2. Thanks Jeff! We haven't started yet since I'm not allowed to do laundry or lift anything over 10lbs until next week. I'm really looking forward to it!
