Having A Baby

I fully believe in soul mates, and I believe that when you find the right person it will work out somehow, someway. You will fight for what you really want, and some of these teaching tools come disguised as issues. Don't feel ashamed if you also find yourself taking a different road than your parents had hoped.
I am not usually someone who likes to live in the past, or live with regret. I try to stay positive and focus on the here and now. However every time I look at my daughter, my 18-month-old being of love, light, and laughter, I can't help but wonder how the choices I made in my pregnancy will affect her life.

No one ever tells you everything you need to know before you have a baby. There is an unspoken rule about not speaking the whole truth to expecting moms. Everyone tells you how rewarding it is to be a mother. They say how amazing it is to see your child smile, hear them laugh, and watch them grow. But no one ever tells you how hard it really is. No one ever tells you that the first couple months are the hardest months of your life.
