  • VERY stressful, and amazing to watch your child learn new things and grow up. Your child will be the apple of your eye, and hopefully your best friend. He/she will be your everything!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Its almost indescribable. There's such an overwhelming sense of joy, accomplishment, pride, nervousness, worrysome. I think you get every emotion there is while pregnant. But none of that compares to what you feel when you hold/see your baby for the first time. Its truly breath taking!!!!

  • You are asking about pregnancy?
    That is awkward, unusual, weird. It's exhilarating and nerve-wracking.

    I was mostly *proud* above all else.

  • There are so many emotions with becoming a new mom. You are overwhelmed, excited, nervous, these are just a few. Being able to bring a baby into the world that you help create is a prize in itself. Knowing that you are the one that will teach it, nurture it, provide for it, is exciting. Not knowing how oyu will provide, how you will know what to do is the scary parts. But keep in mind, your parents did not know what to do, and you turned out okay. Just keep this in mind, when you are feeling stressed, overwhelmed, or feel like oyu just need time away. Ask those around you for help. Having a baby is a wonderful experience and everyone will enjoy the process with you.

  • It's undescribible, honestly. It's the scariest, most exciting thing in the world. It's scary, because you have this life inside you that you need to protect for the next 9 months (and 18 years after that), but it is so exciting to know that you are carrying this little person who is a part of you and your dh/so. The moment you hear that heartbeat, see that ultrasound, feel those kicks, and see that little face and those little eyes, you will forever be in love.

  • Since we didn't plan on children I wasn't ready for my news. I was totally freaked out after my first appointment I thought I was in hell. But now that I've been through it I can explain to my firend better then I think doctors when my bf was pregnant she had the same fears when I explained in full detailed of what I went through she felt better.
