 My oldest is about to be 10yo and in that stage where he knows everything, knows better than I do, can take care of himself and everything by himself, is invincible... you get the point. Meanwhile, my youngest just turned 5yo and is in the "it's not fair" stage. lol

I think each age group has it's own special "this sucks" stage but those are the two I'm in at the moment, though my kids are pretty good about 80-90% of the time.

Acceptence ..... I think being accepting of not just motherhood but ALL the changes / adjustments you are currently making and the rest that will follow after child birth is HUGE. anyone can say " its cool , I am used to this... it will be fine" but not many actually mean it . Having a child is a big transition nothing to take lightly , because that's someone who will always be apart of you. 

also Bless you and congrats =)
