My husband and I have been married for almost a year and a half. We've decided that it's time to bring a baby into our family! We have a wonderful 4 1/2 year old yellow lab, but we've been feeling like something's missing. (How cliche does that sound?) I went to the OB for my yearly check-up a few weeks ago and got the 'ok' to go off the pill. I have two weeks left of my pack and I'm starting to get NERVOUS! A zillion thoughts have been running through my head, "Are we too young? Are we being stupid? What if something goes wrong? What if we can't get pregnant? Is our apartment too small? Should we be married longer? How will I afford an entire new wardrobe? For that matter, how are we going to buy a million diapers? How am I possibly going to be responsible for this tiny little person?" I am a WORRIER! I am assuming that everyone goes through some worries like this when they start trying to have a baby. I'm not even pregnant yet and I'm starting to freak out over braces and college funds. I don't know how my mother did it. Here's hoping that one day I'll have a wonderful son or daughter who can look back on my terrified ramblings and (hopefully!) say, "You did a good job Mom."
