Even though I look forward to the whole giving birth and having a baby experience, I recently start to get really scared of it again. I can't help but worrying about the financial side when I'm on maternity leave, how we're going to cope when my full income is missing. I start to worry if I'll be able to cope with a babs and if I manage to be a good mum. And sometimes I just feel like I'm still too young to have children even though I'm 33 and just think if I'm grown up enough for the responsibilities. I feel like once I give birth my whole childhood & youth is def over...
Tried to talk to DH once about it but he thinks this worrying is just down to the pregnancy hormones and I'm being silly... he's also as good as never at home due to his work so when he is at home we have other things to sort out than my worries...
Don't get me wrong, I'm really looking forward to have this baby.
I just realised that I'm half way through my pregnancy.
I think its quite natural to feel that way. Lets face it, its a huge life changing experience.
I am due on friday and though I am so excited about meeting babs, I am so scared aswell. I worry that i wont bond with baby, or that i wont be able to cope, or that i wont make a good Mum or that we'll struggle financially. All sorts of worries, but I have think its perfectly normal to feel this way whilst pregnant. Its hard to imagine being a Mum when it a whole new experience to us. It still feels quite surreal. I was looking at my bump lastnight thinking our baby is in there and we will meet him/her very shortly
My hubby works long hours too, so i know what you mean when there are other things to sort out when they get home, but its good to voice your concerns and worries....
Oh Mrs Smiffy
You must get really anxious now to meet her/him. We have our next scan on Tuesday and hope to find out what we're having. Unfortunately this is the last scan from the NHS, but my sister already organised a scan for next month when we're back home and I already made an appointment for a 4D scan in End September...
I know what you mean it does feel really surreal. It's like you're mind can't really imagine that you have a little human being in you - even though you can see and feel it.
Hope everything goes well for you poppit...
Thanks poppit, thought I'm the only one who's goin mental with these worries..
Oooh best of luck on Tuesday
the scan back home in Germany is mainly for my mum to see the little bugger too. We'll hopefully manage to get the appointment on my mums Birthday. I wanted to have the 4D scan done during the few days she's over in End September but unfortunately that weekend was booked out, so have the scan now a week before my mum comes over and once she's here she'll get the copy of the 4D photos. We'll take FIL with us to the 4D scan though.
