Being a mum

Does anyone else find it funny or weird when you think about the fact that you are going to be a mum? I still have a hard time realizing it...

Yes I think about it often, because my pregnancy was unplanned I guess. It's not really the idea of taking care of a baby it's the idea that he is mine and i'm going to soon experience what unconditional love really is, and what it's like to have someone completely look up to me and depend on me. I always thought motherhood was just something that happened once you got pregnant but meeting moms who's first priorities aren't always their child I realise it's so much more than just having the baby and keeping it, and i'm so excited to get to experience it!

Yeah I do probably because my pregnancy was unplanned and I'm only young. Also the fact that I will now be the adult and I'm not able to say its my parents job because she will be mine. I'm 26 weeks and its really scary to think by the beginning of next year I'll be a mom!

I have a hard time facing it sometimes. It's hard to believe I'm about to be someone's mother lol. I just can't wait to meet my baby cuz then I will really know what true happiness and real love is.

I suppose i would have that big sister feeling if i was young too. But i'm 29 so its a bit old to be a big sister haha.
And my pregnancy was planned and we waited 8 months before i was finally pregnant so i had plenty of time to get used to the idea. But not knowing if i was going to be able to get pregnant, i guess i never thought of all i was going to experience once pregnant.
I think all the hormones make me wonder if i am going to be a good mum but i need not worry, once baby is there i know we will be fine :)

I felt exactly the same way!! Im also 29 and we also tried for 8 months.. Lol
I just had my baby 3 weeks ago. She is a preemie and is in NICU now. She is very precious and love her more than anything!! But Im still getting used to the idea of being a mom. It might not come immediately but you'll get used to it. As time passes, I feel more and more like a mom.
