I had my three kids. I didn’t like it when other people would tell me to feel their kicking baby. I have to tell you that for me, having my own child and being pregnant was nothing like I thought it would be. Your body changes just a bit every day so from one day to the next there is no jarring change. I wound up liking feeling the babies move as I knew they were healthy and thriving. I got over my fear of delivery by telling my doctor up front that I wanted an epidural and did not want to have more pain than I had to.
I know people say you cannot know how much joy having kids can bring you until you have them but it is true. If you want to be a mom and love a child beyond your wildest dreams please don’t let fear stop you.
