As I look at how many weeks I have left versus how many I have been pregnant, I can't believe it's going as fast as it is, yet it seems so far! I'm so excited to meet our little man! This being my first child, and having no real experience with newborns, I am a little nervous about the thought of being solely responsible for a brand new little life with my husband! Is that just a crazy thought? My mom and everyone else keeps telling me that the maternal instincts with just come naturally, and I'll just know what to do, I sure hope so!

    I think you are totally normal! And I agree that maternal instincts do kick in, but it's using those instincts that gives you more confidence in your mothering. I asked my mom lots of questions, I bet you will too.
