Just thought id ask some questions. I am due August 27th and I have no idea what to expect. Obviously sleepless nights and crying, but I really have no idea how to even take care of a newborn. For the first time moms, how hard was it for you? Im just so terrified im going to break down and not be able to do it. My husband and I live with my parents (im 20, hes 21) and I just get nervous. My mom has a strict sleeping schedule, and im just terrified of the baby waking up everyone in the middle of the night. Are their cries that loud? Is it screaming? Also, do you get used to the gross parts of motherhood? I have a severe phobia of vomiting, so thats obviously an issue with me. For the mothers with weak stomachs, did you get used to seeing poop and vomit? Did it bother you? I just hope I can get past all this and be a good mother. I'm so scared.
