Post subject: 21 yr old expecting her first baby! Any tips or suggestions?
Hello everyone, my names Dawn I currently live in Northern Maine I'll be 21 in June and I just found out the other day that I'm pregnant! I'm engaged to a wonderfull man, have been for 3 years and we're both VERY excited! Im still very nervous though, and such a wuss when it comes to pain! I've been reading on everything and anything on pregnancy just so I can make sure I do everything right! My mother was NOT there for me, and to be honest, she wasn't a mother at all, she left me and dad when I was young and popped in and out of my life growing up, all she cared about was drugs. So i KNOW I'll be a much better mother than she ever will. I'm just so scared and nervous about well.. everything! So, I guess I'm here to try and meet other mothers, wheather it's your first child, or you have 8 I'm all open ears on what to do, what not to do. As much info and topics as I can inhale! I go to my first ultra sound apt June 4th ( 2 days after my birthday yay!) and so I guess i'll findout for sure when I'm due then. We're thinking around January though. I have yahoo - horserider6288 msn- firstname.lastname@example.org and AIM - naughtybtch2690 . So if anyone wants to chat, I'm open to everyone! I really need help, and is it normal to be THIS nervous but excited and thrilled all at the same time! Well hope to talk to everyone!
