  • haha no my son was a needy baby and my sons dad at the time had to work and i had no help except that my grandma would come over after work at night to help for a couple hours. By the time she got there i was so tired i just wanted to get a couple hours of sleep insted of a shower lol. Now 7 years later im doing it again here in just a few weeks lol hopefully this time since im older and married to a wounderful man it will go more smoothly.

  • With my first I mentally couldn't take a shower unless someone was @ the house to watch her. Finally I learned to put her in her bouncer with toys and we could both cram into the bathroom and I could shower and still watch her.

  • First and second babies no cuz of labor and delivery and another child to care for. My third pregnancy was also my third section and my body recognized the pains in the early weeks after delivery as being familiar. That third time I had a lot more energy even with two other kids and a newborn.

  • Luckily my husband got paternity leave for 6 weeks so between the two of us we were still able to get a lot of things done!
