    I'd say that is pretty normal, I'm just starting trying for my first and I'm very nervous too!

    Just have to hope our instincts kick in when we hold our babies for the first time :hug:

    Yep it's normal. I was terrified of motherhood when I was pregnant with Mel and so was my OH. I couldn't even imagine having a baby or what to do with him. I'd only ever held a baby once before I held Mel and that was when I was 10 years old and went to a neighbourhood christening! You learn very quickly though and you adapt and change. Most of it is instinctual and in a way the difficulty is in turning off all the voices in your head put there by friends and family, TV "experts" and the many books you end up reading in order to find "the answers" and learning to trust your own instincts. For everything else there's women on here going through it all at the same time whose help is incredible!

    Hiya.....I feel the same...I'm 33 years old and if (God willing) I have a wee one....I do worry that I'll be a good Mother etc but in my heart of hearts I know I will be...I'm just worried because I didn't have the best of upbringing myself.

    I think it's perfectly normal to feel like that.

    I'm trying for number 1 and I get worried all the time about how I'm going to cope with a baby. I've got no patience with anything so I don't know how I'll cope with a screaming baby.

    I just don't know what will happen but I'm hoping that it will all work out in well.

    :hug: :hug:

    i know exactly how ur feeling, i even had a bit of a wobble last night, my first i was petrified while trying and then it got better, but now i have started trying for the second, im crappin it!! i had big doubts last night, i feel better this am, but still a bit wobbly about it. i seem to worry more when im feeling a bit icky, but better when im feelin fine. think that might be down to sick phobia though. :D
