My mother noticed I’m a little awkward around babies. I just am kind of scared of them actually. My mother in law wants my partner to have a baby. I’m scared shitless I dont know if I can care for a baby. Animals are easier. My partner said it wont happen anytime soon but she she does someday want to have a baby
Don’t worry. It’s natural to be scared. It’s a big responsibility. It just takes practice and soon you would be just as comfortable as one of your beloved pets.
When we came home after the birth of my oldest son I said “don’t these things come with a manual??” Lol.
Parenthood is trial and error and learning as you go. And never being afraid to ask advice from people you trust.
Im also terrified of babies and I want you to know if you don’t want one you shouldnt be forced to have one. When the time comes if your partner wants a baby you 2 need to discuss it. Your comfort is important in this.
I never wanted kids until a few months after I got pregnant (rape). Then it’s like a switch flipped on me. Also, there’s definitely a difference between your own kids and someone else’s kids. I love my kid. She’s the most amazing kid ever. But I don’t like most kids. 🤷
All that to say, be open. That love you feel when a kid is yours changes you in crazy ways.
But, also, if you really don’t want kids there is absolutely nothing wrong with that, but you guys really need to be having this conversation ASAP. Fertility treatments are HARD. They’re emotionally draining and expensive and physically painful most of the time. It’s totally worth it if you get a baby, but not everyone does.
I never had kids and wish I had now that I’m 57. oh well…life is life.
