New Mom

Inside my stomach I feel the flutters, I don't know what to think 

so I watch other mothers. 

Our future uncertain - yet an exciting mystery. 

I can not wait to meet you, I wonder if you will look like me!

A child's love I have been told is the purest kind of love, like gold.

Is it true? I hope I feel such love from you.

Of course I'm nervous and scared, but if you think I'm bad,

well you should see your dad!

He loves you already, that is what he often tells me.

In nine months time the mystery will be solved,

October will be a time for smiles with all involved. 

(any advice would be helpful)

    "you should see your dad". Very amusing. Congratulations, I'm sure all will go well. Parenthood is not only the most challenging thing we will do in our lives, it is also the most rewarding. Welcome to the Soup. If you need to bend an ear, just Soup Mail me. Cheers. Rick
