  • Its more. I love my kids and they have really made my life full. Any problems or tests have been worth it and made me a better person and mother.

  • It was a lot harder than I thought it was going to be, especially in the beginning. I wouldn't change it for the world though. I think it's the most rewarding thing I have ever done or will do it my life. I love being a mother to my little boy. He makes me happier than I've ever been :)

  • There things that are harder than I thought they would be and there are many other things that are much more fun than I thought. All in all it is really a different experience than I had imagined. For me it is the most rewarding thing I have ever done and I am sure that it will continue until my child is grown and becomes an adult.

  • It is far better and less stressful than what I thought. My DD is my everything, and she is perfect.

  • My son had extreme colic and acid reflux. 15 minute naps were normal and infrequent. I hated so many people for telling me "babies just sleep all the time." I had a very very sick pregnancy and then emergency c-section at 37 wks. NOTHING turned out the way everyone said it would.
    He will be 6 this year and I am real nervous to do it again but we have been trying since December. Can't get any worse right??
