I have been told not to lift heavy things or exercise too hard or do anything sexual because of early bleeding. I'm a bit stir crazy with the exercise and sex part, but the heavy lifting is the one that's killing me. My 23-month-old son is 27 pounds, and he counts, and it's really making parenting hard. I'm the type of mom who still carried him around everywhere I went. He's used to being on my hip when we shop, while I cook, and when we do just about everything else. I loved to wear him in the Ergo while I cleaned or in my ring sling at the zoo, and now I can't do any of that. He's dealing with it OK. We've had a couple of really sad moments when he cried because he just wanted mama to pick him up. I just feel like this is changing me as a mother in a bad way. I feel like I'm sacrificing the child I love for one who isn't even a sure thing.
I'm not really looking for answers. I just wanted to share with some people I knew would understand.
