This is the reality of motherhood. . .💜

This is what the reality of motherhood looks like. . . Clothes I wore yesterday cause I was too tired to change, throw up on my shirt, finally washed my hair after a week of it not being cleaned, hair not brushed, trying to go through and get rid of old stuff, but in the middle of that she cries and I stop what I'm doing to grab her feed her and then rock my babygirl to sleep and stare at how beautiful her little tiny face is and she makes me forget that my tummy isn't flat like it was before her and its all covered in stretch marks she make me forget my back hurts because I got the epidural to help ease my pain from spending 48 hrs in labor waiting for her arrival she makes me forget that my hips kill me because I went from 4'11 and barely 120 to 172 by the day I had her and now I'm 154 she makes me forget I barely sleep because she's been teething for 2 months straight she makes me forget anything that makes me sad when I see her face when I see her smile everything around us blurrs out and its her and I against the world and nothing matters but her This is motherhood. . . All the mess and crazy but just completely complete ❤ This is motherhood. . . I'm completely here for it all, the ups the downs the wild the crazy the sleepless nights then up all the next day and doing it all over again This is motherhood. . . And im in love with it 💕 This is the reality of motherhood. . .

Almost in the same boat. Haven’t showered in a week, have knots and tangles in my hair, I probably smell like pee and spit up, I don’t know what sleep is... the nips hurt from him struggling to get a latch, being told that I’m beautiful by my daughter but then she asks why my tummy is still fat if there is no baby in there any more, the mountain of baby clothes that needs to be washed and folded is never ending... I’m 4’11 also but I haven’t weighed myself in fear it will make me more depressed. But despite being pooped and peed on, the way he looks at me makes my heart soar even though I feel like crying all the time. The way he sneezes is my new favorite sound. The way he snuggles up in my neck to fall asleep makes me happy.

I completely understand exactly what you said here! My daughter is struggling so much with breast feeding 😪it's been a struggle since the day she was born and it makes me feel defeated all the time! I was so scared to weigh myself cause I've always struggled with an eating disorder 🙁 hang in there momma!💕 we can get through this ❤and you're not alone at all! If ever need to talk im here for you!

I love this ! Thank you

No need to thank me! 🤗 I want women to realize that's it's ok not to be perfect and that what we're going through and our struggles we go through that we're not alone! 💜

And I'm crying! 😭💗 This is beautiful and true!

Beautiful 🥰 I'm new to motherhood but I can relate - I know it's hard but it's very rewarding when they give you those cheeky smiles. I keep saying to myself that it's all worth it and it'll get better🥰🥰

Don't let this beat you up you are an amazing mother and we all will have moment where we feel like this times we feel like this but remember remind yourself how does your child look at you, to you... you are their whole world and really see that they truly need you without you there world would flip upside down you keep your head up and keep being the amazing mother that you are!
