With all the guilt-free eating I will be allowed during my pregnancy along with the extra love and care that I'll get from my family, I wonder how much I will put on?
Putting on is easy, getting rid of it is the difficult part! Will I be able to lose it all? Will I be able to gather the strength and motivation to work out? Well, I hope I do!
The one that everyone talks about; the one where whatever you eat, you puke! I so hope that doesn’t happen with me.
Will that be a good decision? Will I be able to work without any difficulties during my pregnancy? And if I leave, will I be able to get my same job or the same pay package back again?
I am sure he will become even more caring towards me, my needs and my cravings (if at all I have any). I only hope he never gets too busy with work, and the baby and I are will always remain his top priorities.
Not only throughout the pregnancy, but afterwards as well. It will be an entirely new journey for me and I will need not only their help, but guidance also in order to raise my child.
The excitement is so amazing! Boy or girl, doesn’t make a difference, all I want is a beautiful and healthy baby.
Will I be as good as my mom was? Will I be patient with my child? I hope I am able to raise a wonderful human being.
I don’t know about myself, but this I know that my husband will be the most perfect dad. Seeing him being so responsible towards me and his nature with other kids around, I feel like the luckiest wife ever!
I have to do up the baby nursery, clear out the space in the closets for the baby’s stuff, buy clothes for myself because I will still be a little out of shape! So much to do, such little time! I should better get to making lists right away!
Whoever I meet advises me to sleep now because that won’t be possible when the baby arrives! How hard could it actually be?
I want my child to have a unique yet beautiful name, and I hope that decision is left to me and my husband alone with a room for suggestions open to all.
Hearing other people’s experiences of delivery, I get cold feet whenever I think of that time. Whether it is a normal one or through surgery, I just hope it is over before I know it!
