Well today’s post is an admission of insecurities and fears. So buckle up and get ready for a ride from the mom-to-be. Today I come to you feeling like the new mom. As I begin the third trimester I have been hit with a truck size load of worries, fears, and insecurities. I am coming to the fast conclusion that life is on the brink of changing. Did any of you mama’s feel this way?
Changes: Life has changed but it is really going to change come October. Less date nights!! Yikes I look forward to this time with my hubby and love how it keeps the hubster and I connected. Freedom. Other moms have told me that I will value my alone time once the baby is here. Is it really going to be so scarce that I recognize the value of it?
Worries: Becoming a parent is a blessing and a privilege in my opinion. With this being said it is the task of a lifetime. You are responsible for this life. A life that you will inevitable shape and mold. How can you be for sure you are doing a good job? How can you feel secure when you get ready to leave your child with someone else? How can you feel secure going to sleep those first few nights? (I assure you that I am not typically a worrier, but parenthood has brought this out in me. Is this normal?
And finally. . . .
My insecurities: How do I know that I will not pass on my faults to this child? I am by NO means perfect and am a work in progress. With this being said I don’t expect my child to be perfect but I want this child to not make the same mistakes I have made is this a realistic expectation.?
So let me hear from you mama’s to be are you feeling at all like me?
And mom’s out there, what can we do to prepare ourselves from these worries?
