  • I was the opposite of pp. I didn't know the first thing of taking care of a baby and I dont' know I still enjoy having time for me and my husband where as a lot of women I know feel guilty for having a sitter for their kids.

  • In general, I'm a natural. all I ever wanted to do was have a baby. I baby sat every chance I got and worked in a day care. THere are still lots of things I haven't expenerienced or don't know about yet. It'll come.

  • Natural. I had been taking care of siblings and other kids since I was 6 so it was pretty much second nature for me.

  • By the time I had my son, I was a natural. I had spent the previous decade or so raising my sisters while growing up myself so it was easy once I had my own child.

  • I was terrified my entire pregnancy with my oldest. I was terrified because I never got that "motherly" feeling while pregnant. Then after I delivered him and they laid him on my chest, I was head over heels. And my instincts took over and I was from there on out a mommy. When I was pregnant with my youngest the whole pregnancy was different, I was so at ease and ready for him to come. I always doubted myself, but came through! :D
