Worries and Fears

July 7, 2012

As exciting as being pregnant is, there are so many things that I'm deathly afraid of. I don't think I've been this nervous in life......and I thought I'd done some pretty important things beforehand. Nope. Not really. So here are my fears.....in no particular order. 1. What if something happens to the baby?! Now this might be an irrational fear, but I am afraid of not carrying this baby to term. Every tweak or twinge scares the beejeezus out of me sometimes. 2. What in the world have I gotten myself into? I've prided myself on being 28 with no kids by choice. Am I really ready? 3. Am I going to be a good parent? 4. How in the world am I gonna do this without my mama? This one stays in the back of my mind. She was my rock and better half LOL. I'm really hoping that she's gearing up for some ghost appearances....I need her. *sighs* 5. Is my relationship going to change? 6. I still have so many things to do in life....can I still get these things done? These things and more have me sleeping like 30 minutes at a time at night. Did anyone else have similar fears with their first child?

It's natural to worry, but as long as you continue going to your check-ups and following doctor's orders, you should be fine.

2. What in the world have I gotten myself into? I've prided myself on being 28 with no kids by choice. Am I really ready?
It wouldn't matter if you were 38, no one is ever really ready, no matter what they think or say.

3. Am I going to be a good parent?
Duhhhh!

4. How in the world am I gonna do this without my mama? This one stays in the back of my mind. She was my rock and better half LOL. I'm really hoping that she's gearing up for some ghost appearances....I need her. *sighs*
you'll find yourself doing things the same way your mother did without even realizing it. She'll always be with you in thought & mind, even if not physically.

5. Is my relationship going to change?
It may. The two of you will have to remember to still take time for each other. It's easy as a mom to direct most of your focus to the baby. You'll have to make sure not to exclude Mr. Man.

6. I still have so many things to do in life....can I still get these things done?
Of course you can. It may take longer or be a little more difficult, but it can all be done.

Congrats again on the baby. Can't wait to hear your mommy tales in the near future.
