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 you know the 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 sound overwhelmed. Give yourself some time to adjust to the idea.....and PM if you want to talk
