Hi all the lovely mummies and mummies to be! First of all I'd like to say I love reading all your posts and have been following what goes on here with interest for months even though I have not contributed. Feeling a bit shy and like no one would answer me, really, I suppose. I am a mother of two and 35+5 with my little girl. There is an 8 year gap between my last pregnancy and this one, I've got rid of the horrible husband and am now with the best guy in the world and this is our first together but I've forgotten a lot of the details haha I can't help but be scared all the time about whether I will cope and I tend to turn to this forum to try and remember what it is all like. I have to say I'm getting increasingly scared, not reassured!! I just wonder if it's all as hard as you all make it sound, I mean very difficult births, inductions, transfusions, babies that don't sleep, eat all the time, don't settle and don't poo right, my god, it all sounds terrible!!!!! I know we all turn to this forum when we need help but I'd love to see a post that says "the birth went well, my baby is feeding every 3 hours and sleeping through the night, my partner has been great, it's all lovely!" ha ha ha
I haven't had an easy pregnancy, I have hated almost every minute of it to be honest and feel like I should be happier than this but I can't. I can't wait to meet my little girl at last and be free but I feel low a lot of the time!! I have been better since my maternity leave but found out yesterday that my landlady is thinking of selling the house so of course, I spent the night worrying and didn't sleep much and am now back on feeling really down. It seems a bit like there's no light at the end of this tunnel!! So there you go, I'm asking for some nice stories from all of you! Tell me how wonderful it all is, it might make me feel a bit better. And sorry about the moan.
