Congratulations Sharon, hope everything goes well for you. My son is now 12 months old and the only advice I have is enjoy the little baby stage as it is over much too quickly!!! Before you know it your little one will be crawling, talking, walking and much more!! Even though at the moment i'm sure it feels like you will be pregnant forever. As you are quite young I am wondering if your baby was planned or a pleasant surprise?? Our son was unplanned and after the initila shock realised it was the best thing that could've happened and he brings so much love and laughter into our lives. Good luck with the birth and the first few weeks of getting to know your baby.

Hi there my name is Karen and i to am a first time mum. My partner and i are both 36 so have started our family late in life, i never ever wanted children they just turned me off and then about 2yrs ago it clicked and i wanted a baby so bad, so here we are and it's the best thing i have ever done. We had Austinn Harvey Lane on the 30th Nov 02 and he just changed our world, every single thing he does just melts me, when he sleeps i miss him and i wish he would wake up just so i can be with him, i can't wait to see how his life pans out and i can't wait to give him a little brother or sister.

hi janelle,
yes, at the moment i am really looking forward to having this all over and done with but i am enjoying pregnancy. Nichole (as she is being named) was a pleasant surprise, i wanted a baby but my fiance and i agreed to wait and low and behold a few weeks later i found out.
i am so happy and excited.

hope to hear from you soon

Hi Karen,
I am 3rd time mum to my 3rd boy Christian Jack Anderson. I can really related to your feelings of missing him when he sleeps, wanting him to wake up! Its unreal and still happens now at no.3! Christian was born only a few days before your Austinn (22Nov2002). He is very different to our other two boys and such a delight! Its like having my first baby all over again...

Enjoy your little man smile

hi there sharon
welll congrats first on ur pregnancy i am also 20 and i had my baby 14 jan 03 she is 5 1/2 months now and growing wonderfully and always laughing.

i hope u have alot of suppport from ur partner and surrounding families its true enjoy your pregnancy and the baby stages i can not belive my girl is almost 6 months try to keep as many memorys as u can stock up on film u will probably take over 400 pics in the first 6 months also u should get a video camera its funny how u forget things fast.

take advice but use what u want , dont ever feel pressured into any thing do what u feel is right cause mum always knows best. dont ever feel afraid and think ur wrong for asking advice or having a depressing feeling always know it is normal due to changes in ur routine and body.

have an open mind in ur birth if u would like to chat to me more send me an email at liby_Mumberson@hotmail.com goodluck

Hi Sharon,
My name's Amy and i'm a first timer aswell. i'm 18 and have a beautiful boy who was born on jan 28th. Its amazing how time flys after having a baby. You need the photos to keep up and look back on.

I breast fed adam(my son) for 4.5 months then weened him to the bottle but he got reflux really badly so now he's on karicare anti reflux, which can be annoying because u cant pre make bottles or the formula becomes to think.

I some times get bad looks being so young but i know that i'm a great mum and have the support of those close to me. People also give me a lot of advice but u only use what u feel would work, as for the rest u listen and then brush it off.

I wish u good luck with everything, and hope u have a healthy baby.

Amy
