Is there anyone else out there that is or was scared before they had their first child?

As his due date rapidly approaches, I find myself feeling uneasy...I love my husband and my unborn son, but I just wonder, will I be a good mommy, or just "good enough"...

  • OMG Luv you will be just fine, you will be the perfect mom in his eyes and no one elses opinion on how good you are matters. I was scared shitless before my son came but labor was quick,easy,and not really bad at all and the whole being a mommy thing is easy,now I am not saying it isn't frustrating as hell at times but is the most fun thing in the world. Good luck with everything and enjoy life as a mommy!!

    Not just the birth, but everything after the fact. You are not alone.
