Oh lord hun, I am in your boat rowing along beside you!   I’m also turning 30 later this year, getting married in October and while we’ve talked about TTC right after, it will all depend on my work situation (i’m in school til april and would not TTC without a reliable job so I can have mat leave). 

I have always thought of kids as an “in the future” kind of thing.  ALways planned on them, always figured I want them.  But now that it’s getting close to time, I feel panicky when I think about it! 

I LOVE babies, but man, that’s a LOT of responsibility!  LIke… til I die.  How can you know you’re going to want to do something for the rest of your life?? I dunno.. it scares me. Babies are cute, but what if I don’t like my kid? What if I love the baby part, and hate the ‘kid’ part???? These are my thought processes!  It freaks me out!!!!  But I’ll still do it.  I’m just hoping when the time rolls around, I’ll be ready… or at least not panicky lol

@futuremrsk18:  Lol you will be just fine, and when you do have your own child, you will know what to do. Like I said, pregnancy is what changes you into a mom if you go into it having doubts. At least for me…something happened to turn me into a mom, and I am actually excited to watch the same cartoon on repeat or hear him speak Monkey and try to figure it out. Something with the hormones does something to you and you change.
