So I can enjoy some time with Owen and get acclimated to life with a newborn, I asked some of my blog buddies to play along and answer 10 hard-hitting questions about pregnancy and motherhood.
Today, the talented Jacque from The DIY Village is sharing her experiences and insights.
What did you enjoy about being pregnant?
I loved feeling her move, her daily hiccups were a highlight. And I won’t lie the attention wasn’t too bad either. People gushing over how much she hair she would have and who she would look like. It was pretty awesome!
What did you NOT enjoy about being pregnant?
Heartburn … all 8 months of it! From my 7th week of pregnancy till the day she was born at 34w6d I had heartburn. Even water gave me heartburn. It sucked! Oh yeah and she was frank breech … that head wedged in my ribs was super uncomfortable, to say the very least.
What did you miss most during your pregnancy/pregnancies (booze, sushi, lifting heavy objects, being able to fit into tight spaces, etc.)?
Tailgating with alcohol and spray painting.
Any interesting pregnancy cravings?
Fruit … I could not get enough fruit. I craved it constantly.
Any interesting pregnancy aversions?
People talking about food! Hardee’s radio commercials were the WORST! I thought I was going to die every time one came on the radio.
If you weren’t married to your spouse and could choose one celebrity to father your children, who would that be and why?
Channing Tatum … because he’s Channing Tatum.
What are the three baby products you couldn’t live without?
Dr. Browns Bottles, Portable sound machine, Car seat clips
What’s one thing you didn’t know about babies before you had your own?
Colic can strike at any moment and it is NOT for the faint of heart!
If I offered to care for your child/children for 48 hours what would do, where would you go, etc.?
Movie, dinner, and then sleep …
Any sage mom advice you’d like to share?
No matter how prepared I thought I would be, I was wrong, DEAD wrong. Be patient and take deep breaths it’s so worth it!
