Terrible, Wonderful..

I say it all the time, but motherhood is the terrible, most wonderful thing that has ever happened to me. As I sit here nursing a teething, hungry, needy, baby, I only see fit that I blog ;)

Terrible- Morning sickness for 12+ weeks. Nausea, vomiting, fatigue, and more vomiting.

Wonderful- Hearing that 12 week old baby's heartbeat. The sweet sound of a rapid drum, beating, to let you know that there is indeed, a life inside of you.

Terrible- Pregnancy, sometimes. The bloating, weight gain, back pain, swelling.

Wonderful- Seeing your belly move, and ripple. Watching your little one turn flips in his temporary home, that you provide.

Terrible- Labor. Contraction after contraction, breathing, pushing, tearing.

Wonderful- That baby's first cry. Gazing into those sweet newborn eyes. Kissing his tiny pouty lips. Falling in love with someone you met.

Terrible- The first couple of weeks of breastfeeding. Cracked nipples, Uterine contractions, Engorgement, Leaky boobs.

Wonderful- Knowing that you, and only you are providing his only source of nourishment. That bonding time that only you and him share.

Terrible- Loss of sleep. Middle of the night feedings.

Wonderful- The moment you pick that sweet baby up out of his crib, all is right in the world.

Terrible- Skinned knees, scrapes, falls, bumps, bites.

Wonderful- One little kiss fixes anything.

Night, y'all
