Saturday In House Gists - Things Motherhood/Fatherhood Changed About You

When you bring a baby into this World a lot of things change around and within those who are around the baby....
Most affected  are the parents or those directly responsible for taking care of the child/children







Has having a baby changed anything about you?So many things about me has changed with the birth of my Boys.....

One worrisome one is that i cannot sleep beyond 5am....It is as if there is an invisible alarm clock that wakes me up...
Physical changes are also there........
I am a tad more emotional,which i don't like!
My shoe size increased!

If i continue,there will be no space for yours...

I would also like men to include their input......
One man said his house became too noisy and he lost intimacy with his wife and began to hang out more.....

    1. I really wish for that patience, but right from time, I have always been impatient. I always want my things to be done sharp sharp without wasting time.

    3. Hmmmmm
      The first thing I noticed pregnancy did was to take away my shame, like before pregnancy I used to be a very very self conscious person but with the first 4 months of pregnancy came hyperemesis gravidarum.
      It was terrible, I used to puke more than 10 times in a day, anywhere and anyhow.
      Then the constant peeing in the last trimester, chaiii if I don't release it fast, it would come on my body.
      I used to feel like the ground should open and swallow me whenever I peed in awkward places and trust me I did, funny enough most people would only smile when they see doing that
      Now I no get shame again oooo not after Male doctors chook hand into my kini during labour.

      The worst part of it all is my forgetfulness/temporary memory loss. Hmmmm that one is something else and it has still not left me till today.
      I noticed I'm now more assertive especially when it comes to issues surrounding my child, I no dey gree nonsense oo
      My shoe size also increased, of cos my body has also changed and I'm now calmer and more emotional.
      All in all, Motherhood isn't something I'll trade for anything in the world ❤️

  2. I think its more demanding for people who live in the abroad especially with childcare, my wife and I hardly go out like before, thank God we've passed the age when our last child wants to sleep in our bed. Less time for each other but my wife is a superwoman and everything to me, she's the air I breathe, God bless her for us 💕🌹🌹

  3. Oh dear Lord!!! pregnancy is something I pray not to go through again.

    It showed me shege, I have not fully recovered from the trauma, I am in my thirties but I experience severe pains in my hips and knees till date even though no one has rheumatism in my family, and I religiously took my calcium during pregnancy.

  6. That she size is the most painful thing ever. Waking up early is not so annoying because I am used to it from secondary school and University we used to have 7am lectures.

    I no longer have my peace and quiet to add pepper to injury my first son is over hyper active and the lockdown hasn't been helpful. How I used to love and enjoy my me time 😢😥

    I am darker and fat especially my waistline. I am also more emotional and drawn to kids unlike before.
    In all motherhood is a beautiful thing and I pray God bless all those looking forward to having this great experience Soonest in Jesus name. Amen!!!

      Yep, the increase in shoe size really surprised me.

      I’ve always been emotional but now it’s to an nth degree especially when it concerns children whether mine or others. I sometimes wish there’s a way I can gather all children in the world going through one difficulty or the other in a safe place and cater for them.

      My capacity to love increased more than I can ever imagine. I realized that catering to their needs almost always trump mine. In all, thank God for His guidance cause you learn everyday as a parent.

  7. I'm the kind of person that don't joke with my sleep, but after having my kids, I don't sleep when sleep is calling. I can't sleep if they are still awake. I make sure they are asleep before I close my eyes.
    I used to wear heels those days, but now, I don't. Can't even walk with heels for 2 seconds.
    I used to be team perky noobs, but these kids drained me, now I'm team slippers.
    Good thing I didn't add much weight after the kids. Some people don't believe I have 2 kids but this stomach is not giving me joy at all.
    Motherhood taught me the act of sacrifice. I can sacrifice anything for my kids just to make them happy.

  8. Tante Stella, everything changed ooooo. I can stand on a rooftop to declare this. I live for my kids for now and getting 'alone' time is so difficult. I cannot wait for them to be teens and less dependent. It is tough but I won't change it for anything. I am grateful to God for His mercies.

  15. Helped me to be more selfless and patient.if you can live with my 3 year old son and 1year old daughter,you can live with anyone.Those two,sigh....

    ReplyDelete
  16. Beyond the bodily changes,your time is now being determined by your child. You automatically become responsible.

    You go to the market with the aim of buying yourself a nice dress but get back home and discover you didn't buy anything for yourself.

    You now think of how to pick your child from sch(if you are not using school bus). It's like you are also going to the sch yourself. Everyday packing of lunch pack.

    Learning of children songs and watching cartoons is now part of your hobby.
    It's an amazing experience all the same

      It used to all over the house but now in the room o and the door must be locked cuz some people barge in to my room unceremoniously, even at night I wake up to see another tiny human being close to me.

      Delete
  20. Ah everything o,especially being more accommodating and tolerant,used to be but it has doubled because this is purely an extended family unit,you are everybody's Mummy,that's the way my father in-law configured the unit. They dine a lot,I had to fall in line.
    My hubby's elder bro can shift their 3 kids from the Island to us for some days without blinking,their reason? they need intimacy biko.kikiki. We do sometimes too.

    And errm,generally,people know I make hardwork look easy,as I'm typing,the healthchart is beside me to set alarms for the week regarding medication,if it rings while I'm at work,I pick my device and log into cctv module,else some will throw the drugs over the shoulder,haha.Besides,I hate panicky modes so I monitor alot of ish.

    One thing is sure though,no matter how tired,I must pray over the household before I crash,even if it's for 2minutes because sometimes I don't get to see them for days. Hmmm,very mkpacious prayers fa. Gatz to build my career too na.

    The things boku jare.

  32. Motherhood has taught me how to be patient and more accommodating, most times my boys will just batch into my room without knocking on the door,a times they will come into the restroom just to report something to me not caring that am pooing.

  33. Hated pregnancy and hate motherhood more!
    Absolutely hate it! Love my daughter but hate it that's why I'm saving money to either do surrogacy or adoption because I'm definitely not going through this ghetto experience again.
    I know totally understand women who are self aware that they don't want kids, I love it.

    My shoe size increased which makes it a nightmare finding my shoe size now.

    My body size doubled despite all my conscious effort to lose weight. It's so unfair.

    My travel lifestyle has been truncated because my schedule is now out of the window.

    I have always been patient, compassionate and tolerant so motherhood didn't bestow that on me.

    I hate the physiological and physical changes pregnancy and motherhood brought on.

    Now when I see babies, I do yimu to the ovaries whatever.

    ReplyDelete
  34. My boyfriend needs to read this post. I have never seen a man who hates having kids around him as much as this dude, and I love kids so much! I fit cope so?🤔
