How Moms Will Survive The First Day With The Baby Based On Her Zodiac

Out of the twelve zodiac signs, three signs are beyond a shadow of a doubt going to have the worst days of their lives. Whether you’re a total believer or a high skeptic, there is something to be said about how scarily accurate horoscopes can be.We have all had that moment reading about our star signs and staring in horror at the words, which appear to ring too impossibly true. Surely they’re vague enough that they can apply to just anyone?

And yet, they don’t. Read any other star sign and you will notice many discrepancies that will have you thinking: “Nope, that’s not me at all”. Then go back to reading your own sign's traits to find that nearly every statement fits your personality like a glove.

Daily horoscopes can certainly be hit or miss. After all, there are a lot of factors that come into play at that point and it’s not enough to just generalize about everyone. When it comes to characteristics and personality traits of each sign, the accuracy can be chilling, until you learn to embrace it and use it as a means to learn more about yourself.

Does the description below ring true for you? Don’t hesitate to share with us how your first day with the baby went as we’d love to hear your stories.

15 Libra Moms - Need People ASAP

As a Libra, you HATE being alone, but on the first day of giving birth, you’re not exactly about to take off and party. You’re basically Pinkie Pie from My Little Pony and suddenly being bogged down by a newborn can make you particularly restless. Don’t free though, if you’re breastfeeding, you will likely have contacted all the mom groups in your vicinity well ahead of time.

Although you will try your hardest to stay at home with the baby on the first day, there is a really good chance that you will end up placing the sleeping babe in the car seat and going for a little re-energizing trip to the mall or anywhere with people. But even if you can’t make it out on the first day, you bet you’re tushie that you will reply to every Facebook comment on the picture you would have posted of your new bundle of joy.

14 Scorpio Moms - Will Netflix & Chill

Although you might not have been 100% ready prior to the baby’s arrival –giving birth does tend to be unexpected!--, don’t worry about a thing as you will be sure to research as much as needed on the first day. You can ruminate mentally quite a bit but one worry that you can definitely keep off your mental platter once you’re finally settled back at home is the bounce back.

Scorpio women have absolutely no trouble bouncing back after the baby and you will likely be refueling mentally and physically soon enough at the gym or with some Jillian Michaels DVDs. In the meantime, you’re going to spend lots of time on the couch Netflix and chilling. And yes, you will actually be relaxing while alternating between feeding, diapering and putting to sleep.

13 ...But You Better Watch Yourselves Scorpio Moms

If things don’t go your way, then everyone around you better duck for cover ASAP. To put it mildly, you’re a control freak and it can be next to impossible for you to stay grounded when things don’t go as planned. But you need to remember that everything can’t be perfect. Although you might have your heart set on breastfeeding, it might not happen. Even if you try to put the baby in the swing long enough to go to take a shower, your little nugget might hate it.

You likely won’t crash on your first day back home with baby, but stay aware that it’s not too far on the horizon. As a sign of extremes, it doesn’t take much to set you off and once you’re triggered, the sting is swift and killer. Luckily, it’s not baby who will receive the sting, but your partner better be ready for the ups-and-downs until a new routine is built around the new bundle of joy.

12 Aries Moms -  Need To Reign In Their Impulsiveness

As much as taking care of a newborn is non-stop, it can still be boring and boredom isn’t something that Aries women handle well. You will likely already be planning a much needed me-time for the foreseeable future as soon as the first day back. Until you’re ready to slip away to get your hair done for a few hours without a stroller in tow, just remember not to bite your partner’s head off when they do something that doesn’t abide by your high standards.

If they place baby in an unsafe spot on accident or smear a sample of diaper cream when you wanted to try coconut oil… let it go. At the same time, don’t go nuclear if no one notices all that you have already done. Recognition and appreciation for all that you have done to prepare for the baby’s arrival will come in due time.

11 Gemini Moms - Already Know Everything

Geminis are intellectual signs and if you’re lucky enough to call this sign your own, then you probably will have one of the smoothest first days with the baby. Why? Because you will waste absolutely zero time researching anything. As an information sponge, you already know everything you need to know about taking care of a newborn and you have absolutely everything you might possibly need and not necessarily need. A wipe warmer? Already plugged in. A diaper genie? One in the bedroom and one in the living room.

Your only downfall is that although you might not get bored on your first day with your precious tot, give it a few days and you will bouncing off the walls. Routine is killer for you and it won’t be long until you’re enrolled in the closest baby yoga or swimming class… even though you might not follow through with going until the very last class.

10 Pisces Moms - Will Have Their Heads In The Sky

If you’re a Pisces, then you should already know full well how you can seemingly do so much without actually doing anything at all. The first day with the baby will be spent lounging around. After changing a diaper, you will probable lay down to stare at your sweet newborn’s cute little face, only to drift right off to sleep and wake up in a panic about the baby being hungry.

You likely won’t be looking at joining any mommy groups just yet, but after a couple of months of spending the entire time exclusively with the baby, you will yearn for some adult interactions. In the meantime, you will stay content with being just another faceless mama in an online baby group asking all sorts of questions and soaking up all of the information.

9 ...But They Will Also Have The Toughest Time

You know it, everyone knows it: you can be an emotional wreck. It’s just what it is and always will be. Out of all the signs, you're the most likely to be hit by postpartum depression. Straight after giving birth, a dramatic drop in hormones can lead to postpartum depression. For the sensitive Pisces, this intense drop can be extremely hard to manage, especially when coupled with the obligation to take of a baby. Sleep is definitely your best friend: sleep when the baby sleeps and try to keep yourself mellow during the awake periods.

In between all the swirling emotions about being a first-time mama or wondering how you will manage with even more kids, one of your biggest downfalls can be forgetting to take care of yourself. In between doing everything for the baby, remember that a shower is sure to lift your spirits... at least until the next cry session.

8 Taurus Moms - Still Eating For Two

On your first day with your little angel, you will spend the time lounging around in your PJs, relocating between the bed and the couch. As one of the zodiac signs that is the least prone to taking any risks, you wouldn’t dare venture out anywhere for fear of your baby catching a cold or any other sickness. Not a fan of surprises, you would have likely disabled your doorbell a couple of days before and already let everyone know that they shouldn’t drop by without calling first.

Ordering take-out won’t even cross your mind as you would have stocked your freezer with plenty of make-ahead meals. Why spend money when you can have your favorite comfort foods? You’re also one of the least likely zodiac signs to post endlessly on social media about your new arrival due to your ferociously private nature. Just a couple of words will suffice for you and if people are interested, they can come visit… just as long as they bring food or even better, chocolate.

7 Cancer Moms - Instinctively Going The Extra Mile

Listen up Cancer, all you need to do to survive the first day with the baby is channel your inner mom. Seriously, as a natural nurturer, Cancers moms have innate mothering qualities. Forget baby boards, all the advice on the web on how to care for a newborn… you can do it all instinctively. It likely won’t take long until you’re perfectly in sync with your little bundle of joy, knowing they have pooped without so much as catching a whiff of the evidence.

Just remember that you don’t need to go overboard on your first day. Baby’s crib sheets don’t need to be perfectly ironed and cookies don’t need to be baked for everyone who comes to visit. The one thing you won’t sacrifice doing though is the baby book. Although you might be tempted to print some initial pictures that first evening, you might want to wait a couple of weeks.

6 Capricorn Moms - Easy Breasy First Day

If you’re a Capricorn, nothing is going to get you down on your first day home with baby. Not the baby blues, not any spit-up and certainly not a colicky baby. No matter what they do, Capricorns are always in it for the long game and are some of the most patient out of all the zodiac groups. It takes a lot to make you lose your cool, so your first day is sure to be easy breezy.

The only way you might crack in the beginning is if the plans you had outlined in your head fail. If you decided to breastfeed, but for one reason or another aren’t able to, then that might throw a wrench big enough into your plans that you might react with intense anger. No matter what happens, just remember that the breastfeeding journey is riddled with hurdles, but at the end of the day, fed is best.

5 Virgo Moms - Prepared Doesn't Begin To Describe It

On your first day home, you likely won’t even come near to Googling anything like “how often to change a diaper” or “how to swaddle” because you would have already spent countless hours of research during pregnancy. From a preparedness standpoint, you’re as ready as ready can be and you probably don’t even need to hit up the store any time soon as you have enough diapers and wipes to last you through baby’s first year.

With that being said, you will either spend your day cleaning everything top to bottom or if you can’t muster up the energy, you will spend lots of hours on the phone talking about everything and anything. And not even necessarily talking, it could just be through relentless texts, Facebook messages and commenting on all your social media profile. But before you judge other mamas in your baby group for opting out of immunizations or doing anything else that you would never do, just remember that constructive feedback far outweighs a vicious remark.

4 Sagittarius Moms - Bring On The Welcome Party

While you might consider leaving the house with your cutie, the most probably outcome is that you will call over all your friends and family to come over... or they will probably just show up of their own volition. Somewhere in the back of your mind, you will be aware that you should be resting, but you just can’t help yourself from wanting to share the joy of your new arrival with all your loved ones. Your easy-going personality makes it easy for you to remain energized, even with guests who potentially overstay their welcome. As you’re not the best multi-tasker, you will likely order pizza for everyone or you might just turn the entire get-together into a BBQ if the weather permits it. After all, you would rather be outdoors than stay cooped up in the house. Your enthusiasm has no bounds, so you will likely be sharing lots of pictures on social media for everyone else to see.

3 Leo Moms - Need To Tone It Down

You will probably spend your entire day lounging around the bed with your precious bundle of joy, admiring how beautiful of a baby you have given birth too. And when you’re not staring adoringly at baby’s sleeping face, you will likely be taking lots of selfies posting them proudly all over social media for everyone to admire. Remember that as cute as your baby is, they don’t need to be dressed to the nines, complete with cute little shoes, a headband and whatever else. Just a cute little PJ will suffice!

Try not to overreact when baby spits up or cries for seemingly no reason either. As much as you might innately be compelled to go into full hysterical and ferocious tiger mama mode, it won’t do anyone any good. Relax, take a couple of deep breaths and take things one step at a time.

2 Aquarius Moms - Want To Socialize But Don't

One of the first things that you will probably do when you get home with the baby is hit up Snapchat, Instagram or Facebook. After that, you might want to start looking up the nearest baby groups. You thrive the best within a group, but an online baby group might be even better for you. As much as you love spending time with people face-to-face, you can also be rather flaky and march to your own beat. Being tied down to a mommy group meeting at the same place and time each week might just make you lose your mind. It might also put you off to feel like the odd one of the group, but being the weird one of the group is ok, so embrace your uniqueness and give other moms a chance.

In the midst of all this, food won’t be on your priority list on the first day, but don’t forget to at least eat a little something to refuel your recovering body.

1 ...And Will Massively Struggle With Their Partners

The biggest challenge that Aquarium moms will face with regards to their first day with baby and all the days onwards isn’t even with their new offspring. As one of the most complicated signs in the zodiac circle, your expectations for your partner are high and there is a good chance that you will decide early that you would rather just do everything yourself. As someone who doesn’t like to waste time waiting for someone else’s help, your resentment will only build if you feel that they aren’t doing as much as you are.

Communication is key of course, but ghosting is so much easier for you. You can’t exactly ghost your child’s other parent though, but remember to reign in your impulsive nature when deciding whether to cut ties or not. As an Aquarius, you need lots of time to yourself just to sort your thoughts, so make sure to set aside some much needed me time or your temper might get the best of you.
