I have never posted on here before but thought I might today and see if any of you have felt like I do and have any advice. My partner and I want to start trying for a baby next year, a baby is something I have always looked forward to having, love working in the child care industry and get clucky whenever anyone has a baby but about 8 months ago we bought a puppy and the first week of having her was very hard for me. I felt over whelmed with her crying and the demand she placed on our lives, I just didnt feel like I could love her. As I said it only lasted a week once I adjusted I was fine and love her more than anything and cant believe I went through all that. So basically I just get worried that the same thing might happen when I have a baby.
Another thing that worries me is the teenage years of the childs life. I know it is all about how you raise children and myself and my siblings all turned out great with not too many problems for my parents but I have also seen some parents go through hard times even though they did there best and this really scares me. Did any of you feel like this when you were thinking about having a child? I really want to start trying but the fear of not being able to handle those teenage years really has me worried.
Honestly the baby/younger years dont worry me too much, its more the high school years that have me worried I wont do a good enough job.
