“Motherhood is wonderful, but it’s also hard work. It’s the logistics more than anything. You discover you have reserves of energy you didn’t know you had.”

-Deborah Mailman-

Two days ago, I have read the article of @MizLhaine , When I Became a Mom: Challenge for Moms. She shared things and changes when she became a mother. As a mother also, I can relate all the things she imparted. While reading, I also examined myself what are the things that has changed in me when I entered motherhood. So, I decided to join also to share my experiences.

_____________________________

When I became a mother, I found my genuine happiness.

Before I became a mother, I was wondering how to feel the word "genuine happiness". I used to read Wattpad and e-books before and everytime I stumble these words, a part of my mind wonders how would it felt like. I used to laugh, even harder but I felt that the happiness I had was so shallow.

But when I got pregnant and heard my child's heartbeat for the first time, I can't really explained the joy I felt. Much more when I first saw my daughter, heard her cry, felt her skin when the nurse put her in my chest, I felt the emotion that I always wonder. I felt the happiness that went through my heart and engulfed my whole body. Until now, I still feel the genuine happiness everytime I stare my daughter. Sometimes, when I stare at her when she's sleeping, I can't hold the tear fell from my eyes. I'm just so overwhelmed and elated that God gave such a wonderful blessing.

When I became a mother, my physical appearance changed.

Before I became a mother, I was so thin. I had a small face and body. Some people even called me malnourished. I don't know why but no matter what I do, I can't improved my physical being. I took some vitamins and even eat a lot but my body still the same. But when after I gave birth, my body started to changed. My face became rounder and my body started getting fat, most especially ma belly. I was so conscious with my body, but later on I learned to accept my body. This changes is part of my motherhood journey.

When I became a mother, I learned to prolonged my patience.

Before, the most challenging for me was she was very picky when it comes to eating or feeding. It was very hard for me to feed her. Most especially when her teeth started to grow. She didn't want to eat and sometimes she didn't drink her milk.

My daughter is now 1 year old and 9 months. As a toddler, it is their nature to love playing. She is a very curious child too. Everytime she plays, she loves to scatter her toys. So, everyday I have to follow and clean all the mess in the house. Also now the she learned to walk and run, which I think the most tiring stage of being a mother, I made sure that I have enough patience to follow her anywhere she goes.

When I became a mother, I became multi-functional worker.

This one is arduous. Before, when I was new in motherhood, I always get stressed. There were many things to do and I didn't know which one to do first. I was alone in the hostel since my partner that time was still studying. I wished I was an octopus so I have many arms. It was hard for me to finish many tasks as early as possible. But as time goes by, I learned to managed my time. So, when my baby fell asleep, I will do some tasks like washing the dishes, preparing my meal, doing the laundry or taking my bath.

When I became a mother, I learned to set my priorities.

Now that I'm a mother, my priorities is set to my daughter. I always make sure that I can provide my child's needs. Her milk, diaper, bath soap, lotion, clothes and vitamins are the first line in the list during grocery time. It's okay for me now if I can't buy new things for me.

CLOSING NOTE

Motherhood is not easy. It may turned our world upside down. It requires sacrifices and all. But it is the best feeling a woman could ever have. For me, I have no regrets becoming a mother because it is the most beautiful experience I ever had. My daughter taught me many things by just looking at her.

PASASALAMAT CORNER

I want to express once again my deepest thanks to all who supported me here in this platform. God bless you all. 🥰

Thanks for participating Mommy. I can relate talaga sa payat noon, ngayon 60 kgs. na ako. It's really a happiness nong marinig natin ang heartbeat ni baby tapos, kahit masakit ang sipa, nakapakasaya. I can relate with the patience, as in need talaga patience, lalo na at 3 ang kids ko. Sometimes, nag aaway na.

Most of the mommies when they born their child, nagbabago talaga ang katawan. But they didn't mind it kase maganda naman yung naging dahilan ng pagbabago nila. Their little sweet angels :)

Being a mother isn't easy and it takes a lot of changes from single to motherhood. The first baby of every mother is always joy and happiness to them just as it happened to you.
