    My daughter will be 19 January 23 and I'm due January 8th no children in-between just several miscarriages. Starting to feel a little nervous like a first time mum lol. I know I did ok with Emma she is such a good girl and going to uni in September so why am I so worried if I'm going to be a good mum lol. One moving out and a baby so nervous but so excited too x

    I'm sure you will be a fab mum. It's a big step with your daughter leaving home and I think that your new baby will make that a bit easier in some respects. My youngest will be almost 13 when our new baby arrives (all being well) and my eldest will be almost 16 so I understand how you are feeling. Finding all this quite tiring 12 years on though! Good luck! xxx

    Hi lilmisshopeful

    i'm tri hopping here, but i saw your post and relate so much. My DD will be 19 in October, she is also going to uni in September. My DH has no biological children of his own and i've only been pregnant one other time, which was my recent mc. my DD is such a good girl, i've never had any problems with her other than your usual teenage mood swings now and again lol.

    I was 15 when i had my daughter but for some reason i'm more nervous about becoming a mum this time around. I can't explain it but i'm just so worried i won't do a good enough job. my husband and daughter keep telling me i'll be great and if i can do it at 15 on my own then i'll be great at 34 with a husband.

    anyway just wanted to tell you that i know how your feeling xx

    My daughter is 17 in Dec, and I am due 1st Jan. Sadly my daughter doesn't live with us anymore....long story, met a boy and her interfering grandmother gave her all the rein she asked for! Madness but that is another story, can feel my blood boiling!
    I married my lovely husband last octoberr and we really wanted to have a child together. So here we are I am 37, he is 40, I do feel like its the first time, 17 years is a long time!
