I am so nervous to become a Mother. To think that I will influence someone's life so drastically is scary. So many things are always running through my mind. Mainly what if I fuck it up? It's not like you can jump in a Delorean and fix it. Luckly all of those fears are over run by how excited I am. So soon I get to cuddle a little baby that I made with the man I love. Picnics, learning to ride a bike, movie nights, reading cute little kid books, tea parties, cupcakes, and constant hugs and kisses. April 8th 2011 can't get here fast enough!

Parents out there were you this scared before having your first child?

Time for bed, night everyone!


  1. Oh trust me, I was scared as hell when I found out I was pregnant. Especially since I'm still so young. Although for me, motherhood just seemed to come naturally for me even though I didn't really like kids at all before I was pregnant (although I still don't like most kids much but I love my little girl). I'm sure you'll do fine though! :)

  2. I was so fucking scared, but it didn't really hit me until right after my son was born. I remember calling my mother crying and asking if I was going to feel this terrified for the rest of his life. Luckily, the fear subsides and you start to just really enjoy the whole experience. Plus, I firmly believe that if you love them enough and have their best interests at heart, you can't really mess them up too bad.

  3. I think i would be just as scared as you all too.

  4. you'll be a great mom! ...and maybe the little one will get lucky and be born on april 6 ( my birthday) :)

  5. I can't believe I didn't know you were pregnant. I have been so bad about reading lately! Congratulations ladyface!

    Don't stress out! I understand how petrifying it is the first time (I was petrified the second time too even), but honestly, all of the things you're probably worrying about either won't happen at all or just won't be as bad as you're thinking.

    I used to worry about health things first. Like I thought I had to learn everything there was to know about SIDS, about the right kinds of bottles and formula vs. breastfeeding (p.s. don't ever get into a conversation about which is better- you'll get pissed and everyone is adamant about their opinion, one way or the other), the softest blankets, all those tiny clothes... it seems impossible. It's not. There's just so much to think about that it's easy to make yourself feel absolutely nuts, but don't- everything will be ok!

    Do you have questions about anything in particular?
