#1 I want to introduce myself

Hi! I’m Bethany, I’m 27 years old, I’m married to an amazing man named Tyler and I’m a parent for the first time in my life. Tyler and I  both grew up in north county San Diego, though I spent my high school years in Houston Tx my heart remained in California so here we are enjoying our life by the beach. We’ve been married for 8years now and finally had our first baby this last August, she’s a little baby girl named Eden and we are obsessed. Now that she’s here we don’t know why we waited so long but we couldn’t be happier. 

So enough about that, what I really want to write about is my experience of the fourth trimester and I want to start by saying exactly that, this is simply my experience and I know everyone’s is different so please don’t judge me or yourself based on this. I just want to share my story in hopes that it will better prepare the next person or at least help someone not feel so alone or crazy. There’s so much preparation for the baby and everyone wants to tell you what to do but rarely do we talk about the aftermath for ourselves as a woman becoming a mother for the first time and I think it’s important for us to not completely lose ourselves in the process. So here I am, I’m going to let you guys in on some intimate parts of my life in hopes that the fourth trimester is a little less difficult to swallow.
