I am a 1st time mom. I just recently gave birth to my daughter on july 6th. I was extremely nervous and even a few weeks after I still am nervous. But as ea day passes, I learn something new. What kinda things are you nervous about ?

Just enjoy it. Don't stress. Your baby will always let you know what they need. And don't be nervous about labor. I was so scared, but once you see your precious little one you'll realize how much this was so worth it. Congrats!

"This too, shall pass" I live by it. As a mom of a 4yr old, 2yr old and 5mos old, I have to. Listen to your baby, and your instincts.
And as a Child Passenger safety tecnician, I have to throw in - Read your Carseat manual! :)

The best advice I can give you is to be prepared and be flexible. You'll want to plan all sorts of big things with your little family but at the end of the day if your child doesn't want to and you keep trying to push that activity everyone's going to be miserable. Things don't always go as planned and as moms we just need to laugh it off and have fun getting down on the ground and dirty with the kids. It's perfectly normal to be nervous and most first time parents end up obsessing over every little noise or wimper that their baby(ies) make and then we have more children and stop having time to obsess over every little thing. I learned that it really didn't matter if the dishes piled up and the laundry turned into mountains so long as I could have fun with my children and teach them something that day. You'll do great just remember that flexibility and patience are the key! Good luck and Congratulations.

Hi! I think every new mom gets nervous. I am 34 weeks and my son is 15 months. It will come to you. When are you due? Remember labour is only a tiny part of it. I was so nervous about having my son and then BAM! it was done. (well 3 days of labour and a c sec) But doesn't seem so bad now. It's tough but totally worth it. Remember that when you are awake feeding at 3 in the morning and can't help but smile at your lil critter. Good luck and don't worry!

Trust your instincts, Listen to the logical side of your brain and remember that no matter what you do some times baby's just cry... And talk to people anyone who will listen. If you are having a bad day write down how you are feeling and find the emotional and logical sides of things and try to separate them. Good luck with the new bundle..

I'm a fairly new mom to an 11 month old and I'm pregnant with our second. What kind of things are you nervous about?
