First baby, single mommy, cold feet about motherhood.
I found out I was pregnant on February 15th. I am really excited by the prospects of being a mother but at times I am kind of upset that I am going to have to give up the life I live now.
Does this mean I am not ready to have a baby? Or does everyone go through this?
I had to give up my job as soon as I learned I was pregnant ( I worked on a cruise ship's casino) I left my job and flew back to my country on Sat, my baby's dad is still there, he calls but you never know what will happen.
I did think of the life I just left behind, making lots of money and having lots of fun, traveling around the world but you know what? on Monday, when I heard my baby's heart b for the first time that was the happiest day of my life, nothing ever made me feel like this before
I'm scared too, my mom passed away and I have no idea of how to be a mom but I guess I will learn
i think its completely normal. babys father and I broke up 2 weeks before i found out i was pregnant. im now 25, live with my mum and have no job (as i just moved back to the uk when i broke up with babys father) so i definitely understand where ur coming from. it was a big shock when i found out i was pregnant, but i saw baby on the scan last week and saw his/her little heart beating away, i wouldnt change it for the world. and just think, once the baby is grown up, u have the rest of ur life to do the things u might be missing out on now.
I'm scared too. I can't even imagine having a baby. Like I try to see my future, and I see hubby and my and our dog, but I can't imagine our whole lives being about the baby. DH has been so excited this whole time for the baby, and I have been like WTF have we done, our lives are over. We don't even live exciting lives. Just normal jobs, we mostly stay at home and all that. Its just a lot to process. I feel like 9 months is not long enough to process it all. And I feel like a jerk of a mom since I'm not thrilled 24/7 like everyone else.
