you will be a great mom...I think we all feel or felt that way...when are you due? once that baby is in ur arms you will forget this feeling you have right now....congrats I think I had the same feeling with all 4 of my kids...dont be sad to feel this way you are a normal mom and if you need to talk pm me.
Quoting lovemybaby20:I'm so scared of this! I'm scared I won't b a good mom :'(
what are you scared of...maybe seeking a therapist can help..heres the thing if u think youre gonna be bad at something- anything then u already destined urself to be.i also dont beleive in bad mothers only poor choices,,, unless u eat ur child or something horrendous even then u just needded some serious help... [trying to be comical] dont be negative nancy otherwise u will be just what u are afraid of,...a bad mother
I think every first time mom has that feeling I know i did when i first had my daughter she is 2 years old now and i believe im a really good mom, im on to number 2 and i still get that feeling ... it is normal you will be fine
Quoting nikkifam5:I don't think what you are feeling is abnormal. We are all scared to screw up as parents. There is no handbook on parenting, we all learn as our children grow. I don't think it calls for a therapist, I don't think its that deep, unless you're having anxiety over it in which case id seek help for the anxiety . Take new parent classes, buy a few books and talk to your OB/midwife... breath chicka, it will be oka ;)
