  • I quess going out. I didn't go out much when I was pregnant with my first but now that I want to it's hard since I have to give the sitter notice, have money to pay them and enjoy myself and we don't have any family around to do it for free.

  • a good mom gives up HER life as she knows it and only makes decisions based on the best interest of the child...you become entirely selfless ...

  • Honey you do not have to give up anything, enjoy your baby and everything else will fall in place. Take care of your self.

    God bless you and baby and daddy.

  • Honestly, I didn't really give up anything, I simply postponed a few things... But give up? Never! Changing who I was because I had children would only enforce the idea that I was doing something I shouldn't have been in the first place, which I wasn't. Did certain aspects of my life change? Sure. But I never gave up a single thing... I just learned to rearrange things a bit.
