I’ve known FirstTimeMum1 since University, we have shared each others ups and downs and even though we have often gone months or even the odd year without seeing each other, I still would class her to be one of my most precious friends.
She’s the sort of friend who held the tissues for me many a time when I cried with a broken heart, who defended me when I needed it, and kept safe all those embarrassing secrets for all these years. From tomorrow another chapter starts in our friendship, no longer will I be boring her with stories of baby poo, she’ll be joining in!
FirstTimeMum1 is being induced tomorrow and I wanted to wish her all the luck in the world, she’s the best friend a girl could have so I’m sure she’s going to be a magnificent Mummy!
My tips for your first few weeks are:
- Make sure you eat little and often!
- Grab Sleep when you can, Daddy will wake you up if he can’t cope!
- Chocolate and a drink by the bed at night for night feeds are essential!
Any tips for FirstTimeMum would be welcome, I’m sure she’ll love to read them!
