What was the hardest part for you when you had your first baby? Lack of sleep? Emotions? Feeling stressed? School or work?

For me it was being alone (no partner).

Being away from him for any amount of time.
And living with my parents. (Although we're moving out within the next couple of months)
I don't complain about anything else. I always try to look at the bright side of hard times.

Yes, having a good support system (that starts with a good partner) is crucial.

I know the feeling. I work full time and miss my guy every single day. But, I love my career. Catch 22 really.

All of it! Haha I was having a hard time taking control and be a mom I was use to just taking care of myself and helping with my sisters but I didn't have another person to talk to.

 lack of sleep.

With my first having to leave him in the NICU for 3 weeks. I was so ready for sleepless nights because I missed him, even though I went to see him several times a day.

I find the newborn stage to be the easiest though. It's when you have a mouthy, strong willed 3, 4, 5+ year old that it becomes difficult.
