Linda Nyangweso recently took to social media to describe how her first few weeks of raising a newborn are, and truth be told, it’s some serious story!
Not those glamorous, flowery things you see on social media, Linda Nyangweso’s experience is the real deal. Read it below; you won’t regret it;
“I wanted to come on here and make it seem like the last week has been the best week of my life and just that but I decided not to lie. Sure it would’ve been easier to fake it for the gram but I wish someone had told me the truth. A week ago tomorrow God open the floodgates and my little girl was dramatically born! #lookatgod #showingoff #blessed .But I wish someone had told me that no matter how healthy you try and remain during pregnancy and how you resisted at sushi/wine night with @kadzo_ ,something may go wrong. Completely out of your control. And it’s not your fault. Your body has not failed. You aren’t any less of a mother. Your baby is here. When they show you her picture while you’re just waking up from what feels like a car wreck, you may not fall instantly head over heels, movie tears in love. And that’s ok. Do not feel guilty. You still love your baby. #allBabieslooklikegrumpyoldmenatfirst #canigetanamen #dontjudge.
I wish someone told me DO NOT LOOK IN THE MIRROR RIGHT AWAY! Yes everything has shifted at least a few inches south! #winteriscoming. I wish someone told me I would limp, be sore and feel like I was failing from day one. But that we all feel like that. But this too shall pass. I wish someone would have told me that one day I would pray, as in tongues, as in natuma ksh 310,for leaky nipples. Hang in there. I also wish though had told you that as much as you’re an emotional train wreck, you are that baby’s emotional light house.
And I bet you you’ll cry at least once over something stupid. Sob #HEREYEBROWSARESOONFLEEK #sob. But when it’s good. It’s really good. I wish someone told me that even if you think you know someone inside out after 7 years, you will learn in an instant what an amazing human being they truly are once they become a father. #daddysgirl .I wish someone told me the first time she heard me sing and smiled, probably just gas, I’d want to wear under wear over my pants and a towel for a cape for the rest of my life. I wish someone told me that even if you’re a “private” person, and “don’t do” social media much, as soon as you saw her, you knew every post for the rest of your life after that would most probably be about her.
