Re: anyone else scared about having the baby?
This one wasn't really planned.....but not prevented at all. I had my first at 16, the 2nd at 23, and I'm 28 now (expecting baby #3).
I was not excited with the timing......or another HUGE age gap.
I think that some amount of apprehension is normal, afterall you've done this before.....so you know the realities.....you realize it's not all cute babys and rainbows.....kwim?? At least for me, that's how I feel.
But I know that things will work themselves out, they always seem to.....and IMO, it's never as bad as you imagine it will be
And, FWIW You don't sound like a horrible mother to me.....you sound overwhelmed. Give yourself some time to adjust to the idea.....and PM if you want to talk
