When I found out that I was pregnant, I was excited and scared at the same time.
Everyone told me I’d be alright, but as I got closer and closer to the birth, I became more and more scared. I had no idea how to look after a baby.
What if he cried all the time?
What if I couldn’t feed him or he threw up all the time?
How would I cope?
Well, after my little boy was born, the fears didn’t go away immediately. In fact I remember crying the morning I left the hospital, saying, “I don’t know what to do with this baby!” The nurses said I’d figure it out and I guess I did. I had help from friends and family and tried to keep everything in perspective. I realised that nothing drastic was going to happen and my confidence grew along with the baby.
We’re doing fine now.
