The work of mom never stops, but when does it start?
For some it starts with trying hard to get pregnant – trying to keep the romance going on the ovulating schedule, fertility treatments, and months (or years) of uncertainty.
For some it starts with a little stick tells you THE news.
For some it might start with hearing the heartbeat for the very first time, with the ultrasound or the weird butterfly feeling in the stomach.
For some it really doesn’t become real until the first cry in the delivery room or even the moment when you are left alone with the baby for the very first time.
Each of my three pregnancies was very different: the first pregnancy included two years of trying and fertility treatments and incredibly easy delivery, the second one was a bit ahead of plan (we wanted to go for the number 2 soon after), easy pregnancy, and a difficult delivery. The third one took us totally by a surprise.
