I have been thinking about this whole concept of parenthood and I don't know if I am ready. I melted down completely after birth class Monday. I am just weary of this whole pregnancy thing. I wailed like only a gigantic woman full of hormones and sleep deprivation can. I told my husband, "I just want a week off, I don't want to be pregnant, I don't want a baby, I just want to be me one more time before this happens." Of course I didn't mean I don't love and want my baby, I am just weary. I realize that this baby is going to consume my life and things are never going to be the same. Oh well. I hope that it will be wonderful, I think I am just afraid of the unknown.....

Seriously, do all moms with half a brain in their head feel about this way? Here I was thinking I was alone... It's comforting enough just knowing there are others. (And how funny that we posted about it at roughly the same time!)
