I know many people wouldn't say this aloud, but I'm scared to have a kid.

I want my kid. But I'm scared to have a kid.

I'm scared of how I'll be able to handle it...

If I'll be nurturing enough...

If I'll lose my mind..

How it will change my relationship with John...

How it will change our lifestyle...

How it will change our relationship with our friends..

It's really flippin scary.

I just have to keep reminding myself.. If Amber and Gary can do it, so can I!

I hear ya! I'm 36 weeks today, and terrified.

I desperately want this baby, but I have all of those thoughts, plus a few more...

I had this thought yesterday while having some rare "me time". I got paniced and wondered if I was really ready. But it's too late to wonder that. Now I just have to hope I'll be a great mom and that I won't lose my mind. And that watching a Lifetime Movie (having me time) will still happen even if it is rare (it already is).

It's normal to be afraid. But really, once they arrive, it all seems to work out! You will be fine!

I'm scared and excited at the same time.

This is why you're one of my favorite bloggers - because you're so real & honest. I'm positive that you're gonna be one hot rockin' momma. And I can't wait to follow along with what you share. I think it's normal to be scared. I'm gonna be shittin' bricks when it's my turn.

It's very scary...but so worth it. During L.J's first 6 weeks, when I thought I was going to lose my mind from lack of sleep and felt like a horrible mother, I often turned on Teen Mom. It made me feel good that my life wasn't that bad...sounds kind of mean, but sooooo true!

The closer I got to my due date with R I got worse and worse. However, once she was here everything changed for the better. Minus the constant lack of sleep I have!!!

Alena: Oh, Its Just Perfect! said...

Umm...yeah. I've had ALL those worries (and thousands more). I just keep thinking that I'm not the first and I won't be the last. You are gonna make a wonderful mama. xoxo

Jaime said...

You will be an awesome mom. Worrying is just the first part :)

Nap Mom said...

Everything is going to change... drastically... but only for the better.

Fabulous closing line by the way!

Sonya said...

I agree! I'm not even pregnant and the older I get the more it TERRIFIES me! I'm sure it will be fine, but the fear is still there!

Unknown said...

Hahahahaha the Amber and Gary part had me dying laughing. You are going to be a great mother! Being scared is part of the journey. You got it!

I've been trying for 2 1/2 years DESPERATELY to have a baby...and at the end of the day, I'm scared outta my mind to have a child. I think it's totally normal. From what I hear, all the fears subside once you see your sweet baby :)

I'll say a prayer for you!!

And who is Amber and Gary?? LOL...I've not been that great at following blogs lately, maybe I missed something ;)
