Feeling like a bad mom already...

Any of you gals starting to stress about how close we are getting??  My bf and I share a room in a house with his mom and our little girl has no place for her things. We are hoping to move jan 1st but it isn't a done deal yet and she could easily be born in December.  Since we have nothing set up for her yet I have these crazy dreams that I'm a bad mom and forget to feed her!  Anybody else having "I'm gonna be a bad mom" dreams??  Oh and it doesn't help that we haven't named her yet. People ask us DAILY and treat me like a bad mom for not picking a name yet...

Don't feel bad! You will be a great mother, the fact that you are worrying shows how much you love her. It's normal to be worried and dreams do get indeed crazy during pregnancy. We just finished things for the baby yesterday, I still haven't bought everything, just a few minor things left, we still don't have a name. Many wait until birth and then the moment they see their little one, they have the perfect name. Our girl will be sleeping in our room for the first year, I have her crib attached to our bed, makes it easier to breastfeed her and my eldest daughter starting sleeping through the night that way at almost 3-4 weeks. EVeryone is different and as long as she knows and feels that you love her everything will be perfectly fine. All the best

i live in a 3 bedroom house with 4 kids....i just had twins 11/22 and they both sleep in our bedroom with us...it does not make you a bad parent, i prefer to have the babies sleeping with us so i can keep a close eye on them

however, we do have to move this summer coming up because the babies cant sleep in our room forever so once i am able to work again we will start looking for bigger houses

also as for the name....we did not name my daughter until i was in labor and i love her name and both twins were not named until i literally was looking at the front door of the hospital the day i had my c-section....my hub always waited until the very last minute and the names just worked

the fact that you are worrying about being a bad mom says you are going to be a great mom

I am due the 4th of Jan, just ordered the carseat 10 min ago (I have DD carseat if I must use it) and don't have a name.....but the crib is set up :) I figure things will fall into place, there's enough other stuff to  worry about.

I live with my bf and my parents and in the last week I have just got  all her stuff ready. I still dont have her crib up or her carseat out of the box. But I will be doing that in the next few days seeing as im getting induced next monday. I have dreams I am having a boy and im in other countires when I have the baby. They say dreams get crazy at the end of pregnancy.
