Difficulties of being a new mom

Honestly, if I had known the moment you give birth you instantly become a mom I would have waited a bit longer. I mean how do you even prepare yourself for such stressful times. Don't get me wrong I love my baby but the past nine months makes me feel like I have lost myself. Going through complicated stages of pregnancy, hormones kicking in and out everyday and night, the trauma on labour day makes you see a lot of things differently. If I had known that another human would have to depend on me with every little thing I would have taken more time to prepare myself, diaper change, breastfeeding, bathing, entertaining, sleepless nights the list goes on. Coming back home I hated my boyfriend, I was like why am I going through all of these traumas alone. Of course he supported me throughout but the fact that he didn't have to go through all that I went through made me look at him differently and it made me understand why a lot of relationships fail right after a child was born. Thankfully we managed to save ours. I am not a love guru but I would gladly love to advice new parents to take time and understand each other, I mean you both have never done this before, you both want your say to go and nobody wants to be the one dealing with a crying child all night. What you could do for yourself is understand the new stage of your relationship which is parenting, research and ask people who had done it before how they had done it and most importantly be patient with each other and finally learn to understand the little human you have just bought into the world.
