What Becoming A Mother Has Taught Me

April 6, 2016

Let me say this real quick, this isn’t a place for debate over which birth is better, or what makes you a real mom.  If you have that attitude, please continue on. On my blog, it doesn’t matter how your child came into this world. It is your child.  Whether, it be cesarean section, natural, medicated or whatever other method there is.  If you have cried over a child, picked that child up as they have a skinned knee, or they come running to you calling you momma…. your a momma. So continuing on...

 “Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.” Psalm 127:3-5

My body is amazing: I have grown two little human beings inside of me. I mean how cool is that? They started out as a little ball of cells, and formed into living, breathing, walking, talking little mini versions of myself.  Seriously, how much more evidence do you need to wonder if God is real then that!? I know I certainly didn’t need anymore. Not only did I create two people, but I also breastfed them. I breastfed Monkey for approximately 3 months. I’m not sure of the actual amount of time, but it was for a few months I know that. I am still breastfeeding Buggy who is now fixing to be 15 months old. Monkey had stomach issues, and did much better with formula since it was thicker, Buggy however survived on nothing but breast milk for 6 months before ever being introduced to any foods. So that meant that my body provided enough nutrients to not only grow him, but to keep him alive once I gained him in my arms! How awesome is that? Feel free to read more about my breastfeeding journey: The Journey & The Journey Part 2.

 “When a woman is giving birth, she has sorrow because her hour has come, but when she has delivered the baby, she no longer  remembers the anguish, for joy that a human being has been born into the world.” John 14:21

I’m stronger than I believed: Not many times have I had to endure real pain.  However my on and off labor for 5 days with Monkey, then the entire time of laboring at the hospital only to have an emergency c-section, that was pain. You can read about his traumatic birth story here: The Scream.  Then Buggy came scheduled c-section and it was virtually painless, sure he had caused a lot of pain in my back but the delivery was fine. His story is here: Completing The Circle Until the pain medicine wore off from surgery. That was how it was with Monkey and Buggy. That pain medicine wore off and BAM! Pain was there, and pain was serious.  Having yourself cut from basically one hipbone to the other, twice, and having children (21 inches & 19 inches long) pulled from you is going to cause some pain. I have held a child, while watching needles pierce his skin to start IV’s (Monkey). I have cried as my children have cried and I have walk-rocked a child until I honestly thought my arms would fall down and my legs would crash (Buggy). Before children, I would have never thought my body was capable of these things.

 “Every good and perfect gift is from from above.” James 1:17

God knows what he is doing & loves me:  Let’s just be honest, I don’t understand how people can go through a pregnancy and birth and not believe in the awe power of the Lord. He knew exactly what he was doing when he created the plan to reproduce. He made two people come together so perfectly, that we can breed and bring forth life. He is the reason behind all of this, and he did it perfectly.  He knew that 9 months is the amount of time needed to create a little perfect mini version.  We shouldn’t second guess about his plan for our life, when he already shows us many times that he’s got this under control. He loves me. Why do I know this? Because he blessed me with two perfect gifts from above to remind me each and every day, as if I didn’t know it anyway. He wants us to have happiness in our lives, and to believe in Him and his miracles. What better way to prove it then in our children.

What was something that you learned about yourself during your pregnancy, delivery, or parenthood?


  1. Love this! Definitely the part of seeing God's amazing awe and power through the whole process of developing this amazing little human inside ourself and how amazing our bodies are designed to go through labor!
    One of my best friends had to do a c-section too, and it really bummed her out, but in the end, it was the best, safest procedure for her baby boy and now she just thanks God that he's happy and healthy! Thanks for sharing!

  2. That is Almighty has given so much strength to women, Here it is said that the Heaven lies below mother's feet.
    Happy Motherhood.

  3. Love the post! I couldn't agree more. Our bodies are truly amazing and you never really understand that until you give birth. You also never realize how strong you are either till you push a baby out. :-)
