As soon as the pregnancy is discovered, the woman’s world (countless times for the couple) turns into a snap. Although pregnancy is a time to enjoy the entry into this new world, after the baby’s arrival everything completely turns into a 180 degree turn! What many women who want to get pregnant and have no idea about is this life transformation, which in some cases can turn this beautiful moment of the baby’s arrival into a traumatic moment for her and also for the couple. Despite the difficulties, as soon as a baby arrives a family is also born , if it is the second or third child, the changes will be less surprising, but they will still move a lot with your day-to-day.
But calm down, I’m not saying that you’ll never be the same again (although that’s exactly what happens after motherhood arrives, you become someone else and have other perspectives), being a mother radically transforms life and until the adaptation happens, the arrival baby will completely disrupt your routine. But do you know exactly what I’m talking about? If you are still pregnant you have probably heard a relative or friend talking about the hardships of motherhood, about how good, but tiring, being a mother is. But to know 100% what exactly the baby’s arrival changes, only when his miracle comes to the world! Want to know what to expect when your first baby arrives? So come on!
What Changes With Baby Arrival
Bye Bye nights sleep! Ah but this is easy and also a cliché … Everyone who has lived with mothers with newborn babies knows: sleep becomes a privilege colleague! But hearing about it is one thing, going through months without sleep as before, restful sleep without interruptions is another! Of course, nothing can compare with the joy of breastfeeding, caring for and taking care of your miracle in life, but I consider the lack of good nights to sleep one of the worst moments of recent motherhood. But don’t be fooled friend! With the arrival of the baby you will sleep much less, but throughout life, I have lost count of the nights I lost even though I no longer have small babies. Nightlife has never been the same!
Long and relaxing baths, creams session and hair and nail care: It is not that you will never do your nails again, nor a brush in the salon and you will not be able to apply moisturizer. The time is too short! In the first months (why not mention years) of the baby, everything will become more complicated, unless you have a 24-hour nanny to take care of your little one while having a princess day. However, I assure you that your head will be taken care of by the baby while you are in the salon washbasin or between brush strokes and nail polishes. If the case is for older children, know that they will call every 3 minutes asking for something. The same thing happens in the bath, at least I never took a bath in my life (except in the total absence of children at home) that I could call my own moment. Even the most basic and physiological needs became a show entitled to the audience and everything! Why do children love to see mothers sitting on the toilet?
Hot meals? What is that? After the birth of the children, at least in the first months it was very difficult to have lunch and dinner as before. Meals were always perforated. Two spoonfuls and a swing on the baby, two more forks and off we go to help the baby cry again. Not that this is bad, after all, which woman does not want to lose a few pounds after pregnancy? It’s the baby collaborating for the hot mama to take action!
White clothes and always well aligned? I was already a friend. White pants for women who have babies over 3 months (sometimes from 0 months) are not viable. That’s because there is always the possibility of a reflux and also an explosion of the diaper! Imagine a terrible monkey that I spent with Joana, my first daughter and 3 months old. The poop just went straight through the diaper and fell exactly where? In my caramel pants! With small babies I also never had the clothes as smooth as before, it’s always looking for clothes that don’t look wrinkled, at least that way I wouldn’t feel so unpresentable (I don’t know if that word exists but I think you can understand) lol.
The arrival of a baby will provide invisibility for the new mom> Have you ever imagined getting somewhere with your child to take the lap and not be greeted or even noticed? It looks like magic! All the attention that I received before in pregnancy, is now focused exclusively on your baby. When the news that the birth happens comes to friends and family, the vast majority of people just want to know details about the child and forget about the poor mother who just gave birth. How many pounds does he have? Who does he look like? And they don’t even remember to ask about the woman. She is fine? At least that’s right people …
Chaos, my life is chaos! Dear friend, if you used to have an elephant memory before, don’t be surprised if you happen to be one of the most forgotten people on earth. Do you know Dory from looking for Nemo? I super identify with her! The daily routine of even more with 3 children makes me forget important things like vaccines, school meetings, bills to pay and many other things. My salvation? A milestone agenda and I consult the appointments for the day and the next day. #ficadica.
Make no mistake, if you already have one, two children, you may think that you will miss the second letter. The experience really makes a difference, but chaos, this friend of mine arrives even if he is the 10th child! Until adaptation, we can be completely lost. The good news is that everything fits together, no matter how much it seems.
The arrival of a baby will not only bring these little annoyances, after all when we become mothers a new world opens up around us. The vision we have of life becomes shared and we cannot see ourselves without including those for whom we give our lives. The world is much more colorful, much more full of painted chicken, Patati Patatá, stuffed animals and all the famous animals that make the kids happy. The sense of protection comes automatically for mothers and fathers! Never mess with a child, because it will certainly arouse a mother’s fury.
However, motherhood brings with it a special glow beyond what we can imagine . The arrival of the baby makes us better people, better as a man, as a woman, as a human being. We began to care more about those children who are patients of AACD, we have greater compassion for children who are part of ABRINQ and all premature children live in UTIS for some time. The world around becomes another after the arrival of a baby and in short, motherhood awakens us the most good in each of us, LOVE.

My name is Dr. Alexis Hart I am 38 years old, I am the mother of 3 beautiful children! Different ages, different phases 16 years, 12 years and 7 years. In love with motherhood since always, I found it difficult to make my dreams come true, and also some more after I was already a mother.
Since I imagined myself as a mother, in my thoughts everything seemed to be much easier and simpler than it really was, I expected to get pregnant as soon as I wished, but it wasn’t that simple. The first pregnancy was smooth, but my daughter’s birth was very troubled. Joana was born in 2002 with a weight of 2930kg and 45cm, from a very peaceful cesarean delivery but she had already been born with congenital pneumonia due to a broken bag not treated with antibiotics even before delivery.
