Having my son was the most amazing thing that happened in my life. I was so excited when I saw him and had so much fun on his first 3 years but still going. It is true that you can read everything you want to know online or from books but it is only when your son is out that you will learn things on your own. Life has its ways of showing you in a different aspect when your baby is out. Most of the time you will learn things on your own and will have the best time of your life. A reminder to you that even when it is hard and tiring, you are blessed to have a son in your life so take care of him/her with alot of love.

Every kid is different from pregnancy all the way till the end of their life. There is not better feeling in the world than hearing I love you mommy! Its my favorite thing. I was 18 when I had my first son. He is now 3. I remember I didn't want him to come out. I wanted to keep him all to my self. I loved laying there feeling him kick, the day I had him I knew I could love nothing more. Just so you know no matter how many times you say you won't spoil him, you will. I hate leaving him, and he is to the point now that he knows I am leaving. He runs to the door and says no mommy. It breaks my heart every time. HE loves to make people laugh, and if he gets one chuckle out of you he will do it over and over again. There is nothing else like the feeling of being a mom, thankfully, being a mom as soon as that little guy or girl comes out its like you become and expert. You are the only one that can fix the boo boo the only one that can make a tummy ache go away the only one that can make the perfect penut butter and jelly sandwich. You become a doctor a chef a cheaufer a comedian a street performer a teacher and everything else you can think of

Honestly you can read everything there is out there and do all your homework but nothing you read or find online is going to prepare you for the overwhelming responsibility of being a parent. It is magical, scary and wonderful all rolled into one. The one piece of advice that I still adhere to is if your gut tells you something is wrong go with it, do not let your doctors brush you off do not take you are just a new mom as an excuse, make them run the test and go the extra mile and prove to you nothing in fact is wrong. Good luck and have a wonderful happy healthy 9 nmonths
