One of the top comments I get from viewers, friends and family – “I don’t know how you get up at 2:15 every morning.” I don’t really have an answer – I just do. It has never been easy but it was the hardest when I was pregnant and the first few months back from maternity leave. But the day it wasn’t too hard to get up was the last day on-air before maternity leave and my official due date. I was full of energy and excited for the baby to come. The doctor warned me many first-borns are late so I was prepared to have some time to myself. But my baby decided to be right on-time! This is me the last day before my maternity leave.
I guess technically I was in labor starting at 4:50 am – 10 minutes before I went on-air for four hours. I knew something was different but work came first that morning…. However, I called my doctor as soon as I was off-air. I left work and went to the hospital.
Baby Lynch arrived that evening, changing everything. I couldn’t be more excited to be a mom and care for my little one. I smile more and yawn a lot more too. Days seem to be way too short. When I come home from work in the late mornings, make-up comes off, dark washable clothes come on and I am a full-time mom.
I’ll be blogging about everything from nap time, sleep training, first birthday invitations, and sometimes how to just make it through the day!
