WARNING: 14 Sad Things Motherhood Does To Your Body And Mind

By Pauline Olisah

As amazing as motherhood is, it definitely comes with a prize that you may never have been prepared for. While motherhood comes with a lot of benefits that cannot be quantified, it is also characterized with psychological, physical, emotional, financial and spiritual changes that you may have to deal with. However, the blessings of having and holding your children, seeing them smile, and accomplish milestones as they grow makes it all worthwhile.

So be warned, as motherhood may make you;

1. Fat.

2. Forgetful.

3. Confused.

4. Sleep deprived.

5. Anxious.

6. Breathless.

7. Worried most of the time.

8. Competitive.

9. Ache, hurt and bruised.

10. Spend more.

11. Become paranoid.

12. Feel less attractive.

13. Have stretchmarks on your hips, stomach, breasts, bum and thighs.

14. Pee or fart anytime you sneeze.

This list is by no means exhaustible. What has motherhood changed about you?
