Mayday is defined as an emergency code word used internationally as a distress signal in radio communications. This is immediately the irony I thought of after learning I was pregnant and that my due date would be early May, jokingly of course. This will be my first child. And I am certain one of the reasons humans have such long pregnancies is to get the mother mentally prepared for how MUCH their life is going to change!
Hi, I’m mamaLife, new to the CafePress blog, but not new to this company. I’ve been roaming the halls here for about a year and a half now! My roaming has become a little more like a waddle lately, please just pass me if I’m going too slow people. Everyday I find products on CafePress that express how I’m feeling about my journey through this pregnancy – so much so that I really wanted to share with you.
One of the newest wonders of being pregnant is all the kicking that the baby is doing. I was actually surprised how early it starts (my naïve self figured babies don’t kick until 8 months or so?!) So when I was on vacation in Hawaii last month, it totally took me by surprise to feel kicks after dinner one night. Like a lot of new moms the first time you think it’s gas. But with each passing week the kicks get stronger, which is amazing because the baby is relatively small (about the size of a papaya according to Google!) Sometimes it’s really distracting, sometimes it’s annoying, but most of the time it’s really touching – I’m lucky to have an active, healthy papaya in there!
