I think you have all hit the nail on the head.....I can totally relate to your feelings of being scared and afraid...and the WHAT IFS, OMG! I'm so much like that.
Last week I drove myself NUTS with the what IFS! I was calling my poor mother crying/sobbing to her that I won't be able to take care of this baby and what if I'm not a good mom, and what if I cant go back to work cause I have post pardom and what if, on and on and on, and my mom kept reassuring me it was my hormones talking and that all will work out just fine.
Some days I have good days and other days I want to CRY. I still haven't gone to the DR. yet, for my first visit, so I am in the early early stages. I go on Monday. I hope that puts my mind at ease some.
My husband can't wait for the little bundle of joy! He is SO EXCITED and already assured me he will help out!
