Once before, for funsies, I did a little glimpse into what happens in a given day of a high-risk pregnant woman. Since everyone seemed to get a kick out of it, here’s a day in the life of a new mom with a chronic illness in 10 gifs!
1. Wake Up via Crying Baby
NOTE: I would never say this, I just think it… very loudly
2. Calm Down Baby
Much like trying to pet a wild animal, attempting to cuddle away the cries usually ends in scratches and more crying
3. Prepare Bottle
Trying to function early in the morning whilst holding a baby in one arm is akin to trying to walk in a straight line after one too many lagers
4. Burp Baby –> Take Cover –> Change Baby
This one is pretty self explanatory
5. Attempt to Have Educational Play Time
Oh, Max, this is just the beginning of how uncool you’ll think I am
6. Try to Sneak Out to Pee/Eat/etc. While Baby Plays
If only I was this stealth
7. Don’t Let Baby Kill Himself
So much energy, so little coordination
Repeat Steps 2 – 7 ’til Bedtime
The days begin to blend together
8. Do Any/Everything to Get Baby to Sleep
Praying is a viable option, right?
9. Wonder if Baby is Really Asleep
Babies are sneaky little tricksters, like mini-Lokis
10. Rejoice! Baby is Asleep!
Be happy (even if it only lasts for a few hours), because you’ve earned it!
