I always feel like the 'odd girl out' on these posts. I'm just not looking forward to doing the newborn phase again and every morning I wake up having slept relatively well I always think, this could have been my last good sleep for months. Ugg they are so much easier to take care of on the inside! But perhaps part of the reason I feel this way is that I have been blessed with easy, relatively comfortable pregnancies.
I think there may be a difference being a FTM. We don't know what it is like to take care of a newborn, we've never been through labor before, and we are just looking forward to experiencing the moment where we meet our child for the first time,
