I am going to be a mom :)

I know it's a little late. I am 36, but, that's how long it took me to really really want to be a mom. I am overwhelmed and scared, but my instinct tells me I am gonna manage somehow. I haven't even told my mom yet, she'll probably freak out, but well...that's it. I truly hope it's going to be a baby girl, I have some astonishing names in mind and I simply love teasing my hubby about them. I've taken the habit of googling the most shocking names ever and then, with a serious face, I present them to him, expressing my ardent wish to name our baby with one of them. Names like Caia, Lilou, Calpurnia, Peppa or Barax and I simply love the shocked look on his face.
It's still very early (barely 6 weeks) and I hope everything will turn out alright with the pregnancy. I'll definitely keep you posted. I'll need lots of tips on being a good mom.

Hmm, well I had a comment, but it seems to have been eaten by Blogger.

Anyway, congratulations, wonderful news!

I was thirty-four when I had my first and only child. Older moms make patient moms. It's all good. :)

Bouncing up and down with happy at your wonderful news. You will be a great Mom - my first thought when I read the title of the post was "I hope she has a girl" - but what either boy or girl or both - may you all be healthy and happy.

Dear Petro,

I also was mom at 36 years. It is a unique and everlasting experience. My mother also freaked out at the time, but because no one liked my ex husband ... lol

I am overjoyed with this news and hoping your feel very well. Sometimes gives nausea , also heartburn (say the child is born with a lot of hair - this is true...), but to feel a being within us is a blessing from God.

All you have questions maybe I may help, even though I live far away, count on my great affection for you.

Hugs

Oh, I'm SO happy for you! Kids are AWESOME. You're going to be a great mom because you're a great person. Congrats!

Congratulations! My human says that out here in Los Angeles, most of her friends - creative types all - don't have kids at all (including herself), or if they do, they are almost always well into in their mid-30s, or beyond. And honestly, I think it takes humans that long to grow into being good parents. Humans are famous for their slow maturation process. What takes a kitty two and a half years takes 30 for humans!

P.S. I think Lilou is a lovely name!
