How It All Started
When I found out I was pregnant, I was happy that I was bringing a bundle of joy to the world, but I was incredibly anxious about becoming a mother.
This was my first pregnancy, so the landslide of questions kept coming and coming. What if I was terrible at being a mom? What if my baby wouldn’t develop properly due to my unhealthy body or poor diet? What if I become those mothers who can’t foster a love for her child? What if, what if, what if?
All these worries plagued me, and it wasn’t until I was on the third trimester of my pregnancy when the reality finally hit me. My worries were getting the best of me, so I finally caved and talked to my husband. We talked, and, since this was our first child, he advised that it would be best that I resigned from work and took this time to cultivate that motherly instinct that every pregnant woman acquires.
That was when my body decided to join in on the fun. I felt bloated all the time, my feet were sore, and, since I was a ball with legs, going to the bathroom was a feat in itself!
These new pains, along with my constant worries, exploded my mind into a full-blown panic mode. My husband, the rock of our relationship, told me that this was all normal, and I should take this time to care not only for our child but for my mental health as well.
He suggests that I do something with the sudden amount of free time. In one split-second, I immediately thought back to my favorite pastime—writing.
I am a passionate writer, and I would write just about anything that fancied me. I love writing and have a knack for it, but my passion faded over the years when I got a “real” job and barely had time to write anything other than numbers and reports.
With my pregnancy and the abundance of free time, my passion for writing reignited and led me to create this website.
At first, I began rambling about the pains of pregnancy so that other expecting couples would relate, but then it escalated over time, sharing tips and hacks in making pregnancy less stressful and more enjoyable.
When my beautiful baby Ruby arrived, things only got more interesting. I began sharing my experience so that other hopeful mothers would feel less lonely in this wonderful journey of motherhood.
These women have so many questions that even their mother could not help, and that was when I realized something bigger than my increasing waistline.
I realized that we lived in a different time, and women have many opportunities now compared to those before us. I remember my parents telling me how they were expecting a bouncing baby boy and how they had the surprise of a lifetime when a baby girl came out.
With that thought in mind Babies vs Kida soon expanded to a bigger blog that welcomed expectant mothers from different walks of life. What started as a way to ease my worries became a revolution for the modern mother.
I can’t say I’m happy I left my job, but it’s fulfilling to know that I’m not only raising my daughter, but I’m also helping other women.
