Hi ladies!! My name is Kristy, I intorduced myself briefly in the intro forum! I am engaged to a wonderful man and we plan to marry in the next couple of months and postpone the ceremony unitl a exactly a year from that date. DF has a 4 year old son from an ex-girlfriend. He and I have been together for 2 years. I find being in a blended family to be very challenging. This wasn't a 100% planned pregnancy but we are extremely excited!! I think him more than me.

I am very nervous about this pregnancy, I think partly because I know too much about what a child involves. Here are some of things that I am worried about most--

Scarred about childbirth
Scarred about not being married yet & now rushing to get married (our personal choice)
Scarred about having to postpone the wedding ceremony
Scarred about having to postpone getting my Master's degree
Scarred about being a mom
Scarred about no longer being a childless stepmom
Scarred of losing my freedom
Scarred of how IL's will react
Scarred of how my soon to be stepson will react and how his mom wil react
Scarred that my mom isn't as close as I'd like her
Scarred of the mood swings that have already started
Scarred about just being pregnant and all the changes that my body is about to endure
Scarred about being out of work for an extended period, financially

I am just plain SCARRED. . .

Sorry if this was too much information ladies. Not many people know about the pregnancy yet, so I have all these bottled up emotions. We don't want to tell too many people just in case anything happens.

Thank you for listening!! I look forward to getting to know all of you!!

There are a lot of uncertainties in life...but unfortunately,
they are inevitable.

changes, don't be scared, and have fun!!

Congrats on your pregnancy! Hope all goes well.

Also, if it makes you feel any better.... It's much, much easier to be a mom than a stepmom.

try not to be scared hun..youll be a great mom..things might be rocky or maybe there not..about school you could always take online classes (like im planning on doing) im in a relationship with a guy who has a 7 year old daughter that he doesnt wanna hurt (so he neglects me and our unborn baby) hes always talking about how he doesnt wanna hurt his daughter and all this bs and nothing good about our baby besides the fact he wants me to be with it at all times...keep your chin up and try not to be scared and just enjoy having your baby growing inside your belly! if u ever wanna talk you could pm me
