new here. thought id give it ago!
my partner and i have recently decided to try for a baby. i came off the pill 2 weeks ago and im very nervous about getting pregnnt! im scared im not mother material!! i really want to have a baby and make a family with my partner. he already has a 3 year old which everyone says im very good with, but a 3 year old is very different from a baby who depends on you for everything isnt it!!
is it all first time mothers who can feel like this or just me?!!

Hi Paige, welcome to the site.
Every woman will worry at some point during pregnancy - 'I'm not bonding/happy with my growing bump', 'I don't feel ready', 'I'm scared of giving birth', 'OMG, this is really happening', 'How will my life change with a baby around'....Alas nobody can tell you what sort of baby you will have, the needs that baby will have & until you have baby at home with you nobody can tell you what to expect & how you will adapt to it. The one thing I can promise is that you will learn to adapt & manage because you are a parent.
Again depending on how you look at things baby's can be just as easy/difficult to manage as an older child - baby's might be more dependant but at least they stay where you lay them down....
The fact you are saying you want a baby already puts you part way to being mummy material, if you truly weren't you'd have told your partner a flat NO & would still be using contraception to try & prevent it. Best wishes & good luck

Paige I came off the pill 2 weeks ago and I am also terrified!
I worry about things way too much so don't think your the only one, by the sounds of it your good with children, and yes babies are different but I think if you are good with children it's a good head start!
Good luck xx
