Im not a new mum, but no I don’t think that.. Yes, there are crap parts of parenting like the examples you gave. But the good outweighs the bad. And I’d be more concerned if a new mum wasn’t excited about becoming a parent. What a bitter, negative post.
No, but my kids are teenagers so I can no longer relate to those feelings. When my kids were younger, I could remember how excited I was for them to arrive. Now Im older and cynical and i just excited when my kids shower or use deodorant 😅
Of course not I think how wonderful they are excited to meet their baby and embark on this new amazing adventure. And it is amazing and wonderful even with those parts you mentioned. Think you need to rethink your attitude talk to gp as you sound very focused on the negatives in life
I don’t think what you are thinking, but I do struggle to connect with such statements...also the whole “we’re trying..so excited to announce’ is hard for me, unless it’s IVF, that seems different to me. I just can’t relate, usually I gravitate away from those people.. The whole I’m excited thing is usually a fake expression to me, it’s quite American and often used in situations I don’t think the person is really excited, unless it’s a nervous sort of excitement.
