  • I was, every time (3 kids). I think it's natural; I was worried about the health of the baby, how I was going to handle another child, if I was ready, if I would be a good parent, etc. I'd like to say it went entirely away, but it really hasn't. It's a mom thing, I think. :)

  • I wasn't scared but I was upset. I was on BC and my boyfriend (now husband) was about to leave for boot camp in two weeks. I was only 19 and wasn't ready to have a baby. But I'm glad I did get pregnant becuase it help me grow up and I have a beautiful family now.
