It's times like these that I love the internet! I'm really glad that I've found a group of ladies that I can experience this very exciting and nerve-racking time with. It would be great to actually meet you all but I know we live all over the country and that's not very feasible.

I'm now 6 weeks along and I can't say I'm exactly ecstatic, I'm more worried and scared. I've lived 32 years in relative calmness and it will be completely turned upsidedown. It's exciting, it's mind-boggling, it's so many emotions! My husband says simply that we'll be having a "bigger life." It's not just us anymore.

I wish I could be jumping for joy but I'm so scared. I think if I read all those millions of baby books out there I'll feel better. Anyone else feel like this?

I felt like that with my first, sort of. The first trimester I was so thrilled and then reality set in during the 2nd. I was like... holy crap! I'm going to be a mom! I devoured a ton of pregnancy books and scoured the internet for every piece of information. I can tell you that at first I was totally scared when they handed me this precious baby, but then I got a lot more comfortable and my instincts sort of took over. I found the Mayo pregnancy book the best for me. It pretty much described everything to go through and includes a newborn section.

Awww, I felt just like that with DD. I read everything I could get my hands on and soon after having her I realized that nothing could've prepared me for any of it and I should just relax and follow my gut. You'll be just fine.

Welcome!

Welcome and congrats! I feel the same way going from one to two. My daughter is almost 5 so we have put the baby things away and they have been gone for a while!! LOL I am excited though because I got a break in between the baby stage and got to enjoy my daughter as a "big kid" and now I will enjoy the baby stage again.

You will get more and more used to the idea. When I had my daughter I looked back to how easy life was before, but as time went on, I couldn't imagine my life without her, it seems like it must have been so boring!!

What your feeling is totally normal! I remember with my first after we came home from the hospital and all the family and friends had left, DH and I looked at eachother and said "now what?" and this total panic set in. But like others said. You take a deep breath and your instincs take over and before you know it you find your groove, and you forget what it was like with out them. It does totally change your life, but in the best possible way. Yes it's hard at times and you don't always know what to do. But you figure it out. You get to be a kid again, and watch your child experience all the new things in life and it becomes new for you again. Yes your life will never be the same, and make sure you take time to do things for you and DH, becuase it will be alot harder in the future. But if your anything like me, you won't miss the old life one bit! Your new life with your baby will be sooo much better. Motherhood is the greatest adventure and the most rewarding thing in life. Just wait till you have your child run to you with open arms and hug you so tight and whisper in your ear "I love you mommy" It's all worth it.

I kinda feel the same way...only I'm very anxious to go from 2 to 3. We will officially be outnumbered and that is something that frightens me! Thank goodness for all these ladies in here with big families!
