My biggest fear right now is that we won't get the house we're trying to buy and then we'll be stuck at my mom's with no place to put the baby stuff!! EEP!
Things that keep me up at night... I could go on forever!!! Um, worrying about SIDS, worrying about other people's "advice", worrying about the baby getting sick, worrying about labor, thinking about what her face will look like, worrying about any birth defects or abnormalities she might have, worrying that I won't be a good mother, ect ect ect. All the normal parent worries!
AND I worry about if I do become a stay at home mom, that we won't have enough money to pay all the bills, even with the help of my mom who's going to live w/ us!
Come on girls, spill your guts!! I know I'm not the only one!
I'm not really afraid to have another baby... I just keep thinking about after I have the baby. I work full time and by the time I pick the kids up from the sitter and go home and get everything done, I am sooo exhausted. Now we are gonna have a new baby to add to that exhaustion, plus I don't think it would pay me to work and pay daycare for 3 kids under 4 yrs old. I would be paying just as much as I was making. So I'm kinds freaked out that I'm gonna have to quit working. Not that I mind. I would love to be a sahm. Just the money situation. Hopefully what SO makes is enough.

My biggest fear right now would definatly have to be the whole birth process. Im deathly afraid of needles and the site of blood makes me faint. Its so bad, that when I went to my first dr. visit and they drew blood, I fainted while the nurse was in the middle of sticking me with the needle. Not my proudest moment.

You poor girl!!! I feel bad for you! But you might be okay during labor because you'll probably have your mind on getting that baby out rather than the blood part! My boyfriend is going to be in the labor & delivery room with me during the whole thing, and he gets real faint around blood, so I am hoping he holds up okay! I can certainly sympathize with you on this one!
i am afriad that i'm not going to be able to be everything that i need to be for my baby, a good mother , provider, protector... i'm afraid to make the mistakes that my mom made.
i'm afraid that my baby won't be healthy even though i've been trying my hardest to be. i'm afraid that i may have to raise my baby alone.
