I remember when I was first pregnant. I was terrified that I wasn't going to be a good mom. I remember not being able to get on a kids level. But as time when on I grew as a mother as my son grew. So when my son was an infant I was in the infant stage of motherhood and so on. Now he is 15. Not sure if I will survive the teenage years but I will try! Honestly, I was not ill when I was pregnant but I truely believe that God will give you what you need when you need it. Not to worry. Enjoy these days and when your baby is here cherish the time. It will pass so quickly. Rely on your family and your husband to carry out the things that need to be done and rest, rest & rest when you can. Congratulation!

I'm not a mom, but I am a father. Once you see and hold the new baby, maybe god will shine a light over you and make you better.

You'll be fine, we have to take care of our kids, and you will. The loving part comes easy, it's the crying that can make you nuts!!!

Where all the MOMS???

I think every mom has this feeling when they are anticipating the arrival of their most precious gift.

God doesn't give us anything unless he knows we can handle it. God knows you can handle this and you will be a *SUPER MOM*

Relax.

Breathe.

Lean on your husband.

Don't be afraid to ask for help when you need it.

And Congratulations!

Being a good mom doesn't have to do with how much you can do. Being a good mom has to do with how much you can LOVE!!!

I second what sixgoofykids said! You're going to find the strength to do what's necessary. And yes...don't be afraid to ask for help! If at all possible, and finances allow, hire someone to come in and help out a bit...even if for a couple of hours?

I had my son against all the dr's advice. I didn't have Lyme at the time, but other issues severe enough that the dr's tried to get me to terminate.

Please don't misunderstand...I'm throwing NO stones at someone who's had to terminate a pg due to health issues...I just couldn't do it.

My OB said he'd get me through it, and he did. And it was a challenge having a baby in my condition. But I look back now on those years and I realize I spent MORE time with my baby just cuddling, and holding him, etc. Cherished memories. I had older children, so I did have help though.

He's 10 now, and I can't do much of the things his peers parents can do..but I can still love him with all my heart, and he knows it. I can't be very physical, but there are a lot of things I do that is still spending time with him.

Good luck...just relax, enjoy this pregnancy and your new baby daughter when she gets here! Someway, somehow...we moms manage to get through. And look back and wonder how we did it, but we did. You're going to be just fine. And so will your daughter.

Congratulations!!!! [group hug]

feelbetter, I really like your ID name...I can tell you are a positive woman. That will go a long way...

What sixgoofykids says, "Love", oh yeah, that makes you the best mom in the world. No reason to worry dear.

Congratulations!!

I wasn't sick when my kids were babies. They are 4 and 8 now and although they wish I could do more with them, they understand that I'm sick. Kids are amazing. I love them and the know it. And they love me and I know it. They have learned to help me when they can and they are just so sweet.

My parents help out a lot. If you have adults in your life who you trust, please let them help you.

You'll be amazing and you will rise to this challenge.
