The diary of a first time Mother

Starting this week, a first time mother, shares the diary entries she started when she found out she was pregnant. Many first-time mums, whether they were prepared for their pregnancies or not, will find it interesting. But the beauty of it is that even those who aren't mothers yet will have a good time following her story. It is witty, humorous and a sure eye-opener. Join us at women's diary, as we celebrate motherhood.Date April 15th 2011

Dear Diary, I think I am pregnant Ooops! Jack thinks I am just anxious but my gut tells me I’m pregnant. I haven’t missed my period but I just know it.

Date Aug 29th 2011

Okay, it's been 3 weeks now and I’m beginning to panic…I was supposed to get my periods last week and nothing. Breath in breath out! Where do I start?

Hi I remember when I first thought I was pregnant, I was terrified beyond words. I did not want to be pregnant; didn’t have enough money, my dad and I were not on talking terms although I had moved out of home and was leaving on my own. I kept wondering ‘what am I going to do if I am pregnant?; what if the father of the baby decided to disown me?; what if he decides he doesn’t want anything to do with the baby… then what? I can’t afford it; I don’t even have a stable job…………It was a moment in my life of fear and mixed reactions consumed me.

Hi for me the first time I thought I was pregnant it turned out to be a false alarm I was sad because I had been trying for a long time to get a baby and it turned out to be a false alarm.

Hi? It was exciting for me when I thought I was pregnant, the reason being my two close friends were pregnant and I wanted to be apart of what they were going through. I didn’t want to go through the experience alone. The thought alone made me excited.
