The thoughts of a mommy-to-be — the countdown is on! February 22, 2006

Filed under: Uncategorized — harrisonandmommy @ 9:51 pm

I have never been so tired in my life! Okay, well, except for the first trimester where I slept more than I was awake! I am just super tired. In fact, I had a half-an-hour nap today and it was heaven.

I also can’t believe how carrying around a baby can be so much work, and this one isn’t even out of me yet! I just find that walking around the grocery store is getting to be a hassle. I think it is funny when I try to get out of a chair or off the couch that I have to get a rocking motion going before I can get out!

Regardless of all of that — I LOVE BEING PREGNANT! It is amazing to know that we created life and I’m carrying this beautiful little one inside of me. I love the kicks. I love to feel when it wakes up and kind of stretches and I can feel it on both sides of my stomach. I love feeling the baby hiccup. I love the ultrasound pictures.

But…

I’m starting to get a little scared. I’m good at this mommy thing while the baby is inside of me…how will I be when it is out? I am scared that I won’t have that maternal instinct. I am scared that I won’t find time for my husband. I am scared that time will fly so quickly that I won’t remember those early morning hours with my baby and me, just us.

But…

I know that my mom was the best example I could have asked for and I will try to follow in her footsteps. I know that I have my mom, sisters and sister-in-laws and a mother-in-law to help me get through some of the baby stuff I don’t know. I know that my husband is patient and loving and will be there when I’m at my witt’s end. I know that I can make it through this one minute at a time, one hour at a time and one day at a time. I know I am strong.

But…

I’m still a little scared….

    You’ll do fine with baby. Your instincts will kick in and sounds like you have a great hubby. In no time you’ll have your little baby. πŸ™‚

    Everything you just wrote in your post shows how great of a mom you will be. You already have motherly instincts. Your concern IS a motherly instinct.

    You will adjust and things will find a way of working out. You will find time to spend with your husband, you will find ways to preserve those moments you will treasure most with just you and your baby, you will find all the strength that you need.

    It is natural to feel scared. And I hate to tell you this, but as a mom you will ALWAYS be a little scared. Scared of the next phase, step, the future, etc. You’re a mom now, Welcome to our world! lol But you will be great and it will be worth it!

    Devynn, You’re so cute!

    I was a basket case of nerves when I had my babies and I have days now with this one coming where I’m scared about it but I know now that emmakirst is right. Your instincts kick in and everything works perfectly.

    Besides, you’ve got me! So, don’t worry!

  7. Devynn Says:

    Jen,

    You are right! I have you and other girlfriends to call when I’m freaking out!

    I am sure my instincts will kick in, I just hope they do it on time! LOL πŸ™‚
