im pregnent with my first and im worried that I don't know how to be a Mum because my Mum died when i was 4 and I was raised most of the time by a horrible step mother. My father is my life and I love him because he made me who I am, but I cant help but be scared that I don't know how to be a mother. Can anyone help??

I'm sure your stepmother wasn't the only 'mother' figure in your life.....
aunts, freinds mothers, even some tv moms aren't all that bad....lol

Your maternal instinct will kick in and you will know what sort of parent you want to be to your child.

The key is, if its all getting too hard, overwelming etc, dont be scared to reach out for advice and help.

you sound like a very intelligent person if you know that you're step mom was horrible at being at mom then you know not to be everything she were. Its not hard i had a baby at the age of 16 no mother at all and i'm now 20 and my daughter is three almost four.She very smart, intelligent, and well mannered you'll be a good mother just focus on the needs of your child..and congrads to you.!
