My body changed after pregnancy
Oh! But that’s stating the obvious of course. Let me list the change from head to toe, and if you’re a mummy, tell me if it’s the same for you!
Memory loss – This is just gets worse with each pregnancy. Some say it’s old age, some say it’s just me (of course these were the non-mothers speaking!) But it is a very real problem! I can’t remember numbers now. I’m not referring to phone numbers only. It’s for addresses, bus numbers, page numbers, dates etc. It.is.bad.
Big Eyes – I can make my eyes go REAL BIG when I want to. These are for times when I really want to scream at the kids, but I can’t (because there are many people around/ it’s a quiet place/ I’m busy talking to someone else) I can do a good stare at my kids and get them to
shut up behave.
Sensitive nose – I can smell the 3Ps a mile away—Pee, Poo, Puke. Sadly, even when it’s not my kids’ I can smell it too. And more unfortunately, even when it’s some drunkard adult too.
Nagging Mouth – I can nag! Gosh! I never thought I’ll be like that! But this trait develops and hones itself especially when your child enters Primary School. I can only imagine when ALL my kids enter primary school, I’ll be Champion Nag!
Toned Neck Muscles – I’m not even sure if there are muscles there! If there aren’t there are there now! I can somewhat turn my head in any direction I want to look at, look for, look out for the kids!
Flattened chest – after breastfeeding, they just never got back. And with every cry and whimper, I comfort the kids bring them close to that even more flattened chest.
Power Arms – One sleeping child is carried by daddy. Two sleeping children? Mummy has to carry one. Three? erm.. wake the one who is least tired!
Tummy – Too depressing to discuss.
Thighs – Just as depressing.
Viscose Veins – I’ve seen mummies with this. I thank God I don’t have that, but I’ve seen enough to know it is a common mark of motherhood too.
These are the marks of a 7.5yr old mummy. Perhaps when I’m a 15yr old mummy, I’ll have more bodily changes to share! =)
Do you have these too? Or does your mum have them?
Every woman should take good care of her health after pregnancy because after pregnancy she faces some problems like weight loss. As a doctor I advice every new mother please take care of your health after pregnancy.
