Expecting the perfect baby
Over the years you have heard stories of sleepless nights, colicky babies, babies with allergies, babies with attitude and now that it's your turn to become a mother, you desperately want the perfect baby. You dream of a baby that will sleep through the night and will smile and just be perfect. Reality check! That probably won't happen :-) but your child will still be perfect... to you!

Definitely agree. I really felt that way when my son was on the way. The first few months were hard on me but, I feel much more confident now with a bit of more experience.

Wow, so true, but almost impossible to believe when your the one thats pregnant I think. The one thing I wish someone would of told me- there is a chance the epidural might not work. I wouldn't of even bothered with it if I knew there was a chance it wouldn't work, which it didn't. It was a waste of energy that I could of been spending working on my laboring coping skills and breathing, instead I was dealing with a jerk trying to put a tube in my back.

I have a three week old and I feel really stressed out most of the time. I am having a difficult time adjusting to my new role as a mom. I feel like I will never leave the house again. She is so adorable and I feel guilty for having these feelings, but sometimes I just wish I could have my old life back. Any words of encouragement?

Don't feel guilty Suzanne!!! Your life has changed and it does take time to get used to it. Don't feel hopeless. Every Mom I have ever known has had these feelings at some point. You're completely normal. You'll soon feel comfortable with your new life and role and won't be able to imagine your life without her. Try to get outside with her for even a couple of minutes a day. Go outside and sit on the porch or get the mail. The fresh air will do you both a lot of good. Just be good to yourself right now and know that things will get better. Take one day at a time, one diaper at a time. Before you know it, you will be an old pro like me! My little girl just turned 1 this month. It was a milestone for both of us. We both survived!!
