If you don't have your rainbow baby yet, what, if anything, about motherhood are you anxious about? (Pulling all nighters, not being able to go on vacation as easily, etc.)

If you do have rainbow babies, what about Motherhood has been the hardest adjustment for you?

For me, it's not having really any time to myself. Of course I wouldn't trade her for all the alone time in the world, but it's been hard getting used to not being able to just throw on some clothes and go. Much of the day has to revolve around her schedule, and that's been a bit of an adjustment for us.

What scares me the most is my energy levels. I have a lot of fatigue as it is, and I don't know how well i'll cope with a crying baby. I am SO scared of colic.

I don't blame you Lex, I also think colic is terrifying! I was very thankful that we dodged that bullet!

I would have to say the lack of sleep I will get.
I run on sleep...If I don't get the right amount of sleep, I turn into a raging grump!
But, I'm sure when I see my babies sweet face, the "grumpiness" will melt away

My first adjustment was with DS. He wanted to eat every 1 1/2 hours!! Going without consecutive sleep was tough! Also arranging everything around his schedule took more planning. DD was the same as DS on eating, other than that that they were both really easy.

I'm already a mother, but all my kids are older 11, almost 10, 7 1/2 and 4 1/2...I think the thing that's going to be hardest for me, is just starting over...All my kids are fairly close in age...It's going to be hard getting used to sleepless nights, and having my alone time which I usually get after all my kids are sleeping...it's all worth it to me

Yeah, I will totally agree with the starting over. While my children are spaced further apart ( 11 and almost 5) , it didn't seem like a biggie with Abbi. BUT I was five years younger too! LOL! I am like you I will happily sacrifice my alone time though!

Hmm...good question!

Personally, I worry about not having the patience needed.

Augie, you might not always have all the patience needed, but I don't think anyone does! You'll do just fine.

I have children but not rainbow babies. I think the scariest thing is starting over. We don't have anything left. And the only way we are having a rainbow baby is if we have an oops. So I guess we don't have to worry .
