I know it will be difficult assuming the getting pregnant proves to easy- e.g. childbirth is the most painful action a woman can ever take.
Our cat is little difficult being a boisterous big cat who wakes up at 3 am everyday to eat, acts a destructively and isn't clean at toilet time. But
She says silly stuff like you can talk to a child ignoring that babies cry a lot and keep up for the first month and when they do learn speech doesn't mean they listen. Let alone the enormous amount you need to learn to do it well and handle life's road bumps. Her tolerance to disruption is poor- got to do it her way. What is the best way to get her to understand (and myself- I don't mind learning)? I am a stay at home husband- not successful at getting work here.

It's the most rewarding thing in the world but it's also bloody hard. In fact being pregnant and labour are hard and that's the easy bit! Forget doing what u want when u want, life revolves around this tiny little person who relies on u 24/7 for absolutely everything! Forget about sleep, forget about having money to spend on ur selves! It does settle down eventually then your beautiful baby turns in to a curious toddler the havoc starts again lol. Then a school child who can answer back lol! And it sure is expensive bringing up a kid these days.
But it's a spectacular experience.
Comparing it to looking after a cat however is incredibly naive and if she thinks it's that easy boy is she gonna have a shock when baby comes! Do u have friends or family with a newborn that she could maybe spend time with? I am due to drop any day with number 2 and bricking it. I still have moments of panic where I wonder what I've done/why/how will we cope. But you do just get on with it and as pp says when you have that baby in ur arms u wonder what life was like before them. Gl x
