Motherhood - A Time of Sacrifice

"To understand your mother's love, bring your own children."

- Chinese proverb

Being a mother for the first time is the most exciting event that has ever happened in a woman's life. It is possible, the ultimate fulfillment of any woman. To be able to create a life ... to carry the baby in your womb for nine months --- two difficult and wonderful events that every woman should experience. Waiting in anticipation of the baby's arrival creates an indescribable feeling of joy, perfection, and joy. To hold the bundle of joy in your own hands for the first time compensates for all the discomfort and personal sacrifice that women make during pregnancy.

Being a parent or first-time mother has long been considered a symbol of self-sacrifice. Indeed, going through the usual "morning sickness" consisting of nausea and vomiting is something to consider. Having a newborn at home literally interferes with all the routines and practices of the couple. Adjustments are made from the time we cook, to the time we get off work, to the amount of time we can sleep at night. Suddenly, the lives of some revolve around the baby in a baby bed. However, all the hardships and challenges of motherhood are open-handed. In fact, it's time to celebrate the true meaning of being a woman.

But like everything else in life, first-hand moms face challenges that require new skills and a lot of emotional stability. One of the first issues women face is the shock of becoming pregnant.

Signs of Pregnancy

First-time moms don't usually know that they are pregnant until after the main symptoms or just after they use the pregnancy test kit. So, here are some ways to find out if a woman is pregnant:

1. Nipple Tender - Your breasts, especially the nipple, become tender about three weeks after fertilization. It can also be swollen. You can also see that the areola has become darker and has increased in diameter. Color change in areola is associated with body adjustment in preparation for breastfeeding.

2. Little spotting - Light pink spotting can occur when the embryo is attached to the lining of the uterus. Cramping is also possible and this is when the uterus assumes a mid position and becomes supported by the pelvis during the second trimester.

3. Extreme fatigue - The most common symptom in pregnant women is fatigue or fatigue. Pregnant women undergo hormone changes that also cause some fatigue.

4. fainting- Sometimes you may feel dizzy or feel weak. This happens when the developing uterus compresses the main artery in your foot causing your blood pressure to drop, thus making you feel lighter.

5. Nausea and vomiting - This is better known as "morning sickness." This can happen as early as one week of pregnancy. Other people experience nausea in the afternoon or evening while for some people it can be throughout the day.

6. Urinary Frequency - As the fetus develops, it causes the uterus to swell and puts pressure on your bladder, which in turn causes you to water more often.

7. Constipation - You will feel this early in your pregnancy when your hormones slow down your bowel function.

8. Anger - Sometimes, you will feel a combination of these symptoms in just one day and because of your broken hormones --- you tend to feel angry. These symptoms are best managed by rest and sleep, and by maintaining a healthy diet.
