When I first became pregnant, I must admit it did take awhile to sink in that I was a mommy. I do not think it really sinks in for a first time mother until the day the baby arrives. Even when I had my daughter the ultimate shock and feeling of being a mom did not sink in till I took my daughter home from the hospital.

In all honesty it was a mixture of extreem fear, joy and sadness. But most of all joy, i was scared i was going to loose my identity and my freedom being a youngish mother also i was scared of the stigma that would be attached to me, scared of what my family would say etc. But most of all the excitment and joy was overwhelming, the thought that i had a life inside me was just spectacluar and nothing could ahve dampened my excitment :) Best wishes Lucy x visit my website http://forgetmenotmemorialcards.co.uk/
