So, like pretty much every mom-to-be, when I first found out I was pregnant I signed up for something, that somehow got me weekly emails sent to me from "What to Expect".
Well, apparently, I'm finding out that the emails keep coming after the baby, too. And you know what? It's totally fine...but it's also been oddly creepy.
The titles and timings of the emails alone have been freaking.me.out. Why you ask?
Because, literally--every.single.time something new is happening around here (with baby or me regarding post-pregnancy), the thought comes to my mind about it and the questions are starting to circulate in my head...
An email from What To Expect is IN MY INBOX about the EXACT SAME THING I've been questioning or dealing with.
Honestly---HONESTLY...it feels like someone is spying on me. It's kind of wigging me out.
-The first time I got majorly puked on--the email came that very day titled, "Spitting up baby".
-At 5 weeks old, Emeline got her first cold...and I felt horrible. In my email? "Treating baby's cold".
-The day I first cried because I was in all sorts of pain....the email? "Nursing your nipples".
-The first night I decided to try a little baby massage, and I later checked my email and saw: "Baby Massage Benefits".
I could not make this up.
It goes on.
-I started noticing a little redness on her butt. Crap! Diaper rash. The next day? "Secrets to Preventing Diaper Rash".
And honestly...this next one...this one freaked me out the most. Because, it wasn't related to baby...but more so to me. I had been whining to Declan for a few days about how badly my lower back has been hurting. I felt so silly thinking that a little 9-10lb kid could really have my back in so much agony already. The next thing you know...in my inbox read: "The postpartum backache".
I kid you not.
So, kudo's to What to Expect for being so freakishly-timely on their emails...
....and also for causing me some slight paranoia.
