Am I Ready For The Responsibility

My husband and I have baby fever. I am 24 and my husband is 25. We have been together for 7 and a half years and married for 2 and a half of those years. We love each other very much and are committed to each other. We are currently deciding whether we want to start trying to have our first baby now. We both really want a baby and would make great parents, but I am worried about something. I really enjoy having my free time after work and on weekends. My husband goes to college part time in the evenings, so I have some time to myself to read and crochet and watch TV. I am worried that all of my free time is going to be gone forever and that I am going to be upset about it. My instincts tell me that I am going to be so full of love and so overjoyed at having a baby that it won't matter to me that I don't have the free time I used to, but still the fear remains. Is this a normal concern? Are most women worried about how they will feel with the constant responsibility of a baby? Please give me some advice.

i say... TRY HAVE A BABY.... You could have a baby, and still have FREE TIME.. maybe not as much as u use to...but having a baby will make it WORTH giving up SOME of ur free time.... Good to know that u're READY to have a baby...

There is nothing like having a baby and once you have one you wont be worried about your free time... so try and have a baby but dont put much thought into it and let things happen as they may...

My Dh and I have been together almost 5 years..and married since sept of 2007. We conceived on our honeymoon! Im 22 and hes 23. Nothing can every prepare you for parenthood or motherhood...but it is the MOST rewarding "job" there is. Its fulfilling, and your motherly instincts and desires will kick in. Dont'll still ahve time to enjoy your TV shows...;-) they DO sleep. :-) Baby's are a blessing. He or she will strengthen your already strong relationship !

ive been wondering the same thing! Im a newlywed too and the thing is that we dont have the "perfect cirumstances". Im almost 30 and wanted to have a family WAYYY before now but I hadnt found the right man till I met my husband. We have a small quaint apartment and both work like dogs - good jobs, he's a pilot, im a nurse - but im just saying we dont have the "white picket fence' to bring the baby home too. We dont have the dog, the cat, the sun shining into the front window... but we have love and we have each other. I guess that's all we need,............ right??
