You can buy all the books and read all the articles you want on pregnancy and childbirth, but your mother is really your best resource for the answers to these questions! And although her pregnancy and childbirth experience might seem outdated, she can offer some of the best, most honest advice. We've compiled some questions that you can use to interview your mother on a special occasion, such as Mother's Day or her birthday--it's a fun and creative way to bond!
After I delivered my first child, my mom and I used these questions to compare the differences in our experiences--we spent an hour and a half on the telephone, reflecting on some of our fondest mommy memories! I was just as surprised at the similarities as I was with the differences in each of our unique experiences!
- Did you have trouble conceiving?
- How long did you "try" before getting pregnant?
- Did you ever lose any pregnancies?
- How did you tell others you were pregnant?
