  • It's going to be ok I had my son when I was 15 and was scared to death but you get through it and in the end no matter how old you are your never really prepared.

  • I didn't feel exactly that way. But I never wanted children. At all! When I found out I was pregnant with my son. I was kinda scared. But it all changed when he was born and I got told see him and hold him. It was the greatest feeling in the world to know that you created a beautiful baby and for you to love and take care of. You'll change once it gets closer to term. Good luck!

  • The first is overwhelming. The first week my daughter was born I was scared to death, then all the sudden the mommy switch flipped on and everything was fine. I never want to feel the way I did that first week though. It was tough. don't feel bad about how you feel. It is totally natural. Good luck!

  • Start finding your support team now and discuss your feelings with them... My support team is my husband (of course), my mom and m-i-l, and my sisters (even though they are young and not parents) These are the people I know I can call even in the middle of the night with anything. be confident and everything will work out, you arent inexperienced so you have that going for you. Good Luck!

  • i felt the same way when i was pregnant with my son but once you hold them for the first time it's like nothing you've ever felt.

  • I remember w/my first daughter I was fine all the way through the pregnancy and when I went into labor and they told me to come to the hospital I just broke into tears. I was thinking "OMG I about to have a baby"
    But the once they are here that feeling changes, you'll always wonder if your making mistakes that's normal i think and I think i've made a few rather big ones, but they love you no matter what it seems and they are always full of love.
    They are little miracles and u'll be fine.
