21 Tweets About First-Time Motherhood That Show The Good, Bad, & Beautiful


Motherhood, from what I've been told, is one of the most life-changing experiences. Though nervousness can set in and many questions can erupt if you're a first-time mom, nothing beats the feeling of going through your first pregnancy and raising your first child. Though I don't have any children right now, every time I run across tweets about first-time motherhood, I get a little excited. I mean who wouldn't find a reason to smile seeing all those sweet stories roll across their timeline?

I always tell myself that I want to wait till my mid-30s to have kids. But when I see the adorable tweets that other moms post about their expanding family, I want to up my timeframe for pregnancy a bit. I'm sure being a first-time mom can be a little scary, but I truly believe that once you give birth, your instinct to become the best mom possible kicks in and gives you the motivation to succeed. And, if you still feel a little self-conscience after you've given birth, there are plenty of other moms that can support you through your new phase of life — and they may even just be on social media.
