So I've been browsing the birth stories section, looking at all the incredibly cute babies and wishing our time would come (soooo long to go, lol!)...
And then all of a sudden it hit me: sometime, in the not-too-distant, very REAL future... I am going to go to the hospital with just me and my partner, and leave with a baby!!! And when we get home it will be just us and we will be expected to and responsible for keeping that baby alive, happy, and healthy, with no one else there to make sure we're doing it right. HOLY CRAP!!!!!
Yes, I'm a first time mom, can you tell? (I have two stepchildren, but didn't know them when they were babies...) I'm really really looking forward to this and I know I can handle it, but every once in awhile I just get this cold hard shock of reality and get panicky for a minute! Anyone else ever feel this way? It can't be just me who gets nervous sometimes!
I feel like this too, I've wanted this for so long and its been difficult to get here, but I still have freak outs, theres times when I'm so looking forward to meeting my little guy and then all the responsibility hits me and I freak out lol. My husband is the rock it keeping me calm and taking me back to all the positive thoughts lol, think its a mix of hormones as well as panick but your not alone xxxx
i think i pretty much have a moment every day like this, where ill realise this is actully now real, im not just wishing it anymore, and iv got to bring this baby up right. it sure does scary the life out of me, but i guess ill just take each day as it comes and do the best i can xx
