I'm feeling more confident in being a parent now.

So far I haven't felt any issues with post-natal depression.  In fact, despite being tired, sometimes scared, and all...I feel really fulfilled.  I had forgotten, until my mother mentioned it, that I had said when I was a teenager that what I really wanted out of life was to be a mom.

I didn't feel the necessity of it being mine genetically, if I was able to bear my own children yay!  If not, I had no issue with the thought of adopting.  Nor did I feel like I had to have a child as soon as possible, I held out until I knew I was ready to be a parent.  But yeah, my main ambition in life was to be a mom.  I've achieved that and I think I'm good at it.  I feel a little bit like I was training for this my whole life, like my purpose was to be a mom. 

I feel like I'm in the right place in my life doing what I should be doing.  I don't know if other people feel that way.  I feel a little guilty for feeling that way because it seems a little anti-feminist...but it isn't because I feel women do deserve equal rights and to have careers....I just don't want a career...I want to be a mom.

I'm feeling good about taking care of my son.
