Im pregnant at 18 with my first kid and im 31 weeks along.im excited for my daughter to be here but im also pretty scared.i know mine and my boyfriends life is going to change even more.i dont know what to expect other than not sleeping,feeding her a lot and changing diapers.this is all so new and im starting to freak out a little.
aww thats natural as its your first, yes you will have sleepless ness etc but babies do get into a routine and there is so much happiness involved.Have you family around may be able to help you get a rest that always makes it easier also get the Dad involved even now you can plan a routine where he is involved some moms pump off their milk and freeze it so dad can feed whilst mom gets some shopping done or just has a break .You'll do okay ...
Thats understandable, its surprising how mother hood comes naturally to mom's,visualise the little one in your arms ..and feeding her etc ..it is such a special time ... Good luck let us know how you are doing , have you the babies things all ready , ?
So true, everyone is scared at first. Normal and natural. You have been given good advice, I only have one thing to add. It helps if you can grab naps whenever a newborn is sleeping. Don't be afraid to reach out for help if you are feeling overwhelmed and need some assistance. I remember when my son was a newborn, my cousin came and cleaned my house. That kind of support meant the world to me. So make sure you speak up if it's too much - you'd be amazed how much friends and families are willing to help out with. Best of luck and congrats on your impending arrival!
