What ONE thing...

you were worried about when you were expecting your first child that was totally unfounded. I mean other than health worries about the pregnancy. I remember being terrified of how hard it would be and how much things would change...and they did change...but in a very good way!

I also worried about messing something up and inadvertently scarring dd for life.

My biggest worry was the labor itself and my water breaking. I worried everyday that my water would break at my shop in the middle of a haircut and I would have to finish up before I could leave. Instead though my water broke at the doctors office when I was changing back into my clothes (I was 4 weeks early). I didn't have the embarrasment that I worried but I did have to drive myself to the hospital. What a scary feeling lol.

I was worried I wouldn't like my son lol. And at first I think I was kinda didn't like him, so I faked it. I was pretty depressed, but I am completely over it now. I think around the time he started laughing I felt better about everything...I never took out my depression on him, I just cried ALOT lol. But I knew the whole time that I am blessed and now I feel it lol.

the only thing that i can think of that i was totally terrified of was that my dd would have a cleft lip and/or pallette. I know that sounds silly, but everywhere i look there were pictures of children with them. i was so scared! when i got my US i made the doc take a pic of the lips so i could see them!

I was and am terrified about when my children become pre-teens and teens!  This world is corrupt and I am scared that my kids will succumb to the draw of the world and fall from God.  We pray constantly that they will become God-fearing adults who live their lives for His glory not thier own!

I was terrified of her biological father and his family corrupting her. But I got away from them and haven't seen them in a long time.

I was scared I wouldn't like my child and wish my life was back to the way it was before.  I do love my child and wouldn't change my decision to have her.

 I was scared about labor and that I would be a bad mother. I had a c-section and I am a great mother. At least I think so.

I had two huge fears. First I worried about my poor baby living in society today and having to go through the terrible things to come and secondly I worried about her being ugly. I don't know why I worried about her being ugly but I did a lot. I used to dream about it.
