i bite my babies- what to expect…really
Confession; I bite my babies. I seriously cannot even help myself. How could you NOT want to bite those cheeks!? Im feeling better about it though, because apparently, it’s science..and evolution! This article was such a fascinating read for me because, prior to having babies myself, I could never understand FOR THE LIFE OF ME why all of my female, Italian relatives were always going around biting peoples babies! Like, ok weirdos! But then, it happened to me! I had my son, Wes, and in no time, I found myself clenching my teeth every time I looked at him! And then, I was even BITING him..not like hard or anything, but I HAD TO. And it got even worse when I had Charlotte! Now, I’m constantly biting them and it’s just normal day-to-day life.
My point in writing this is to inform all of our 3D Ultrasound clients and any other mamas-to-be out there about this odd compulsion! “What to Expect When You’re Expecting” does not adequately prepare you for this! But ultimately, I’m not sure that anything could. People tell you that you don’t know what true love is until you have a baby.. They aren’t kidding! Sorry to all of the amazing hubbies out there, I mean no disrespect. Expectant mamas, it’s just the truth. The love you are about to encounter for your new baby is literally unfathomable. It makes you want to eat them for chrissakes! LOL Its true though! It’s all there in this amazing article from Motherly!
At Perfect Timing, we meet all kinds of people. Some pregnant women are so in love with the thought of their baby while others are like “look, idk what’s going on in there, but this still doesn’t feel real to me.” If you’re pregnant and wondering how you could ever feel so in love with your baby that you need to bite them for hours on end, DAILY, give yourself a break. Lots of women feel disconnected from the baby-on-board right up to delivery! Sometimes it takes a while even after birth to develop that bond. Fear not, the love is coming.. and when it does, it’s going to hit you like a freight train in the most beautiful, sometimes creepy way!
