You EITHER had unprotected sex with someone; believe it'll help you keep your partner around or because you've fallen over the pressure of society that having kids is cute and can be done by anyone. You don't believe that marriage is necessary when it comes to having a baby. You believe that all that baby truly needs is you (a good mother).
You are with the right partner whom you've been with for a long time & know will support you; you are financially, mentally & physically stable & have done all of your research & believe that it's time to make a family.
It is unnacceptable. Even though smoking is a habit that's hard to quit, your baby's life means more to you than anything else. Even though others who have smoked during their pregnancies have had perfectly normal babies, I'm still not going to take that chance.
As long as you smoke on occasion or every once in a while, that it's okay to smoke. Besides, it's almost impossible to just stop smoking all together because you found out you were pregnant. And plus, others who have smoked had perfectly normal babies.
I'm not worried because the moment I feel that I cannot handle the baby, I'll give the baby to the father or to other family members. I need my rest too & sometimes have a hard time being patient with kids. I understand that their kids, but when I need my rest, someone else will have to take over until I can get mine.
Even if I am tired & have had no sleep, I will not get any rest until my baby has calmed down. I don't believe in letting others raise my baby or handle my responsibilities for me. I understand that times will get tough but then again my baby's needs are more important than my own & that's the vow I made when I first got pregnant.
My family agrees that I am mature, old enough & financially & mentally stable enough to have a child. They support me & my partner one hundred percent & can't wait to see their neices & nephews & grandchildren.
My family wishes I would wait a little bit longer before having a baby. They are always afraid that I won't be able to handle having a child and/or that I'll end up like they did. I can't seem to understand why they just won't have faith in me.
I'm not gonna lie, I've done a little research. I always read the pamplets the doctors give me & always listen to the advice others give me. But I'm not going to lie, it's not like I spend countless hours renting baby books or looking online unless I have to. I feel that I already know everything I need to know about babies & what it takes to raise them because of how I've seen others do it so well.
I do my research all the time. I'm constantly online, asking others & my doctor for advice & watching/observing others because I want to make sure that I know everything I need to know. Even though I know alot about motherhood, I'm not too prideful to do my research because I'd be naive to think that I know everything that there is to know.
Picking out baby names; dressing the baby in cute clothes & making other moms jealous; Knowing that there's a cute baby that needs & loves me more than anyone else ever will;
Creating something so beautiful with my partner, knowing that some day they'll be proud to have us as parents; teaching others about the joys of motherhood.
I'd buy tons of clothes; possibly get a new car & decorate my apartment/house; I'd give alot of it away to my friends & family & eventually I'd put some away for my child's trust & college funds. After all, I've got about 18 more years to save up for my child. There's nothing wrong with splurging on myself first & my partner first.
I'd immediately put some of the money up for my child's trust & and college funds first. Then I'd get all the bills paid & make sure that those in my family were taken care of before splurging on myself.
My baby being financially taken care of and supported by the father. I, myself can give my baby all the love that it needs when the father is acting up. Babies cost money & it's too hard to raise a child without the financial means to do so. A baby whose parents are financially stable and dependable is the MOST important.
The father & I being there for the baby emotionally & spiritually. Sure, babies cost money but I think it's more harmful to a child if the only support they receive is from a financial standpoint. A baby having both loving parents is the MOST important.
Yes I do. Everyone around me supports me & agrees that I am ready & will be a great mother.
Sometimes I do & sometimes I don't. Sometimes I fear that I will not be a good mother because of all the drama I've got going on in my life. But either way, it's too late to turn back now so I might as well make the best of it. Some of my family agrees that I'm ready & then again some of my family disagrees. Either way, I'll never be 100% sure until I have the baby & experience first hand what it's all about.
