So I started my ninth month on friday & i have 27 days [and counting] until my son is here! I'm a first time mom & TOTALLY freaking out! So what were something you wish someone would have told you, or whats some really good advice? I'm willing to hear anything! I need all the 'preperation' I can get!Answer Question
You do whatever you are comfortable with. Do not let family and friends tell you what to do. Don't be afraid to ask questions or to speak up when you are uncomfortable with something. You are the one going through this not anyone else. You are gonna be great!!! Congratulations!!

1.Take these last few days to relax, and sleep, because those days are LONG gone after this baby comes out. 2. Always go with your gut feeling, but take what others say and apply that to your thought process. 3.Don't always assume your the ONLY one who knows best for your baby, grandparents, sisters, friends, and even cafemom folk care about the wellbeing of all children, even if they show it in a backwards kind of way- 4.give hugs and kisses EVERYDAY and EVERYNIGHT- and make sure you ALWAYS say good night and goodbye- you will greatly miss those things if GOD FORBIDS something happens and are unable to do so anymore. 5.Don't do the "fair share"things with your kids (if you have mor than one) it will create life long problems between siblings, always promote sharing, instead of buying individual items.

CON't If you plan of breastfeeding, DO NOT keep bottles or formula in the house, its always easy to give up when those things are around-
Other than that, just love him with everything, love is the key to being a good parent.
