Sure, I felt fear and doubt, but above all, I felt love. A sweet love mixed with the fears of probably every first time parent. Like that first drive home when I imagined every car plowing into us now that we had a baby on board! Or my son's first nap as I sat there counting every single breath to make sure he was still breathing! So there I was, deeply in love and feeling sure that motherhood was for me while also having horrible daydreams about everything that could go wrong!
All in all, whether you fall in love instantly with your child or it takes some time to overcome you, love for your children is the most beautiful kind of love. Life feels fuller and you weirdly love your parents and spouse differently, you love nieces and nephews more deeply, and you hopefully make the decision to love yourself more intensely too!
