you may not care right now as you anticipate being a mother for the first time, but this is your last_____fill in the blank (amount of time) before you and partner; have sex on the fly, (sporadically), make plans without worrying how baby will fit in, go to the store without having to pack a stroller and take all kinds of stuff along, simply have stuff in common together without the child being the main thing, wake up snuggling with partner both having gotten plenty of sleep, you and him being the center of attention is now shifted, (not to say your love has changed) but your attention is distributed differently, and if you have a pet, last time you bust out the door when doggy needs to go poopy without having to dress baby, put diaper on baby, bring heavy stroller down stairs of your apartment and do this all with dog leash in hand. (if you live in apartment). these things are very manageable, but how you spend your last days up until baby comes is precious, hopefully by now you have agreed on the method of discipline you both will use to instruct princess pea or junior, as well as what your looking for from a daycare as well. the amount of time you fart around becomes budgeted and planned around the baby, its not like having a pet you just poor food into a bowl and walk away, you have to drop everything, laundry, lunch, phone, and feed baby, a divine interuption but never-the less, interuption. not trying to scare ya, if you still have living parents, unlike me; miss ancient sarah, it wont be so hard to find a willing and trustable sitter, as much as you and MIL dont get along, you will appreciate her spoiling your baby, taking her for a few hours, and just being there. so dont shoot mil just yet. lol, some mils you want to move to the next state to get away from, like mine, calling cps on us all the time, we moved and everything was fine and dandy. so good luck and realize the time you and your partner have together is like a vacation. enjoy!

well thank you, I remember well my life changing having my son, but for me, it was like having this unconditional love and having someone depend on you that desserved my attention. my ex was this demanding asshole who drank and abused me. later he quit drinking, but still abusive, now im older like 19 years, and this time, me and boyfriend just really love each other and do everything together, its just great, im worried i will get jealous, lol. no real need for that as long as we keep a good perspective, the child comes first. us second, its a matter of responsibility.
