Have you recently become a mother? Do you feel wonderful and mesmerized whenever your little angel is in your hands or even in your sight? You have brought life into this world; you are a miracle, Pretty Girl!
With all the happiness and joy entering your life when a newborn comes into the house, many challenges come along with them, such as:
You might be expecting fewer sleeping hours once your little angel has entered the house, but that is not all. Apart from less sleep and related problems, you will also feel overly emotional at times because of hormonal changes. Headaches, weakness, fatigue, and uneasiness are very common at this time, so it is better always to consult your doctor if the situation gets even a little out of control. Taking care of your health is essential also because you will be breastfeeding, which means that whatever illness you have, can come in contact with your little angel.
Post maternity challenges also include a closet full of huge clothes, which won’t fit you anymore. Don’t get frustrated and throw them out to declutter your wardrobe; instead, stack them up in your storage space for future use. While some of the early-pregnancy garments might still fit, you should consider buying new lingerie from Blossom Lingerie, sooner than later.
A newborn in the house leads to a messy home because of the toys, clothes and other useful items. We understand that it is difficult to manage and clean the house while taking care of the baby, so don’t hesitate to ask for or hire help. Ask your mother or husband to help you out with a few chores or hire an experienced nanny to offer a hand. A dirty home can also be injurious to your baby’s health as it attracts all kinds of germs and bacteria.
Pregnancy might have hampered your relationship with your husband because due to the hormonal changes, you might be over-the-edge emotional or frustrated, at times, which would’ve hurt his feelings too. He might have also said things that he shouldn’t have, or maybe did things that were misunderstood by you, so don’t judge him on those things. Reigniting romance is a critical challenge because you both need each other especially during this time. Expert suggestion: if you get time to cook or order his favorite meal, then ask the nanny to take the baby out for a walk, while you two spend some alone time together. Cute, little dates like these can help the romance to stay alive.
What are your thoughts about returning to work? Apart from hiring a professional to take care of your baby when you both are work, there are many work-related challenges, such as:
1. Mood swings at work
2. Any of the health issues mentioned above
3. Low efficiency
Returning back to work is a stressful task because it will only add to the challenges you are facing at home; giving you even lesser time to handle things. Whenever you encounter a crisis like this, think about that adorable face, and all your stress will disappear in a few moments.
You obviously wish to get that amazing body back, so once your doctor approves of it, you can start working out to shed the extra pounds that you have gained during your pregnancy. It might sound easy, but read the challenges mentioned above and then think about stressing yourself physically too. You might already have too much on your plate to squeeze in working-out-hours also. Manage other problems first, and then you can get back your hot figure!
